There’s a new arcade racer in town – Mini Motor Racing X is coming to PlayStation and PlayStation VR next month, with crossplay between VR and non-VR players.
The new racer, from Gun Club VR developers The Binary Mill, “mixes classic arcade style racing with explosive action influences from other recent racing games.” There’s no footage of the game just yet, however we do have some early screenshots of the game which we’ll post below.
Mini Motor Racing X will feature 50 different environments and some classic arcade racer mechanics like power sliding and nitro boosts. There will be a career mode, dozens of cars to unlock and four “championships” for you to play through.
The game will also have online multiplayer and party modes, as well as support for local co-op in the online multiplayer and local campaign modes.
When it comes to PSVR support, Mini Motor Racing X will have “full support for VR and non-VR gameplay on PlayStation 4 with multiplayer cross play between them.” The game has been specifically “re-designed and tuned for PlayStation VR” and, if you have a PlayStation 4 Pro, will run at 90fps in VR. Crossplay between VR and non-VR players will be enabled.
There’s no word on an exact release date just yet, only sometime “next month.” Mini Motor Racing X is the second arcade racing game we’ve received details of lately – last month, David went hands-on with Death Lap, an upcoming combat racing game from OZWE Games for Quest and Rift.
