The company is taking Anki Overdrive to the next level with the introduction of robotic Supertrucks this October.
Anki’s limited edition X52 Ice will be stocked exclusively in the UK and Ireland at Smyths Toys Superstores, while supplies last. At nearly triple the size of Anki Overdrive Supercars, the new battle rigs use their bulk, weapons and new control system to dominate on the track.
The Supertrucks also introduce powerful new weapons and game modes that will put players’ skills to the test. X52 and X52 Ice are armed with an exclusive Pulse Ram, which will blast opponents off the track. Freewheel’s Gravity Trap will disable opponents’ Supercars, causing them to lose control. The new vehicles were designed to make gameplay more robust and set the stage for the ultimate test of skill, pitting size and strength against speed and agility.
Aside from commanding Supertrucks in any of Anki Overdrive’s open-play game modes, the new additions come armed with their own exclusive game mode: Takeover. Players start each match in their chosen Supercar, but anyone that can break through a Supertruck’s defences will then take control of the vehicle to wreak havoc on their opponents until another player disables them and takes command of the big rig.
Anki Overdrive Supertrucks were created by Hollywood car designer, Harald Belker, whose bold vision and style for futuristic vehicle design has been seen in films such as Minority Report, TRON: Legacy and Total Recall.
Freewheel and X52 will be available in stores from 12th October.
