The new battle rigs enhance the racing experience.
Freewheel and X52, the new battle rigs, supersize the racing experience with a frame that is nearly triple the size of other Anki Overdrive Supercars. Beyond their size, Supertrucks will also introduce new weapons and game modes that will put players’ skills to the test.
Freewheel and X52 will be available in the UK from 3rd October.
The Supertrucks were created by Hollywood car designer Harald Belker, whose futuristic vehicle design has been seen in films such as Minority Report and Total Recall.
Each Supertruck comes with new weapon options including X52’s exclusive Pulse Ram, which will blast opponents off the track, and Freewheek’s Gravity Trap that will disable opponents’ Supercars, causing them to lose all control.
Aside from commanding Supertrucks in any of Anki Overdrive’s open-play game modes, these vehicles come armed with their own exclusive game called Takeover. Players start each match in their chosen Supercars. Anyone that can break through a Supertruck’s defences will take control of the vehicle to wreak havoc on their opponents until another player disables them and takes command of the big rig.
“The new robotic Supertrucks deliver a whole new level of play to the Anki Overdrive universe that will give players more content and allow them to rethink their gameplay style. Our fans have proven to be incredibly creative and strategic in how they build out their tracks and how they play; we can’t wait to see what they do with these Supertrucks,” said Boris Sofman, co-founder and CEO at Anki.
