Time to Race: Introducing Brand New Cars & Tracks and Race Mode – A Whole New Way to Play

When was the last time you bought a game or toy that actually got better with time? Well, Anki Drivers, buckle up. Because today, we’re making that happen. The racing game you’ve been enjoying for the past six months is about to get even more impressive.

We’re super excited to introduce a couple new cars with serious personality, two new tracks to expand your battlefield, and Race Mode, a whole new way to play Anki DRIVE. These are the features you’ve asked us for the most, so we know you’ll be excited too!

Two new cars, two bold new personalities
Designed by Anki and Hollywood legend Harald Belker, Corax and Hadion are the newest characters available for Anki DRIVE. Hadion is built for speed and is the only car that comes already equipped with Turbo Boost, which enables you to fly incredibly fast down the track. Corax is the ultimate warrior, with the option to mount multiple weapons. Watch out, he’s an aggressive one! Corax and Hadion

Both Corax and Hadion are available today for $69 from Anki.com and will also be available in select retail stores in the coming weeks. See here for more.

New expansion tracks mean fun new challenges
We’ve also added two new tracks to the Anki DRIVE collection: Crossroads and Bottleneck. These new tracks let you race and battle in ways that make gameplay more immersive and complex.

Crossroads: This track blends hard corners with a challenging new obstacle. An intersection puts your driving skills to the test, requiring perfect timing and the optimum strategy to survive. Or blast your way to victory from across the track with a well-aimed shot at your opponent. Crossroads Track

Bottleneck: This track introduces a new set of challenges. The challenging bottleneck shape requires the perfect line to edge past your opponents. Timing is everything. Drop the throttle to thread the needle, or drop a Timed Charge to strike anyone behind you. Bottleneck Track

The Bottleneck and Crossroads tracks will be available for $99 beginning May 6 on Anki.com and in select retailers, and can be pre-ordered on Anki.com starting today! See here for more.

Ready, set, RACE!
Beginning today, you can add Race Mode to your Anki DRIVE play sessions. Just like in Battle Mode you use your weapons against your friends or AI cars, but now, it’s a race to the finish line. The first driver to 15, 30 or 45 laps wins. To start racing just update to our newest app, available now in the Apple app store.

The cars are smarter than before
It’s true – we’ve made the cars smarter, and the game even more fun. That’s the power of AI and robotics at work – giving you the ultimate racing game.

It’s like Christmas in April. And we couldn’t be more excited. Let us know what you think!
