A new update for the Early Access version of the KartKraft simulator is now live on PC, just ahead of the festive period, and it includes online multiplayer and a new venue.
Located in the English midlands, karting track Whilton Mill was first opened in 1991 and is home to several top-tier real-world events, such as the British Karting Championship and Ultimate Karting Championship. This has now been recreated in KartKraft via a free update.
The venue is known for its aggressive bumps, large kerbing and a first corner entitled ‘Oblivion’ thanks to its high-speed entry.
In addition to the new location, the long-awaited multiplayer beta is now available to all with KartKraft. This will allow you to join online practice sessions with up to 25 drivers in the KA100 kart across the many different venues already available.
Multiplayer sessions will run on a hopper system, with a new online practice running every 15 minutes during the initial beta period. It can be accessed from the ‘Drive > Online’ menu option.
It has already been revealed that a full ‘Version 1.0’ release for KartKraft will launch at some point in 2022, and this latest update follows recent changes to the platform’s sound and the addition of KartKross vehicles.
For a flavour of the Whilton Mill circuit ahead of booting up KartKraft, watch Super GT race against Lando Norris at the venue below.
