More On: Mantis Burn Racing

It is unusual to see a game get released ahead of the projected schedule, but that is exactly what will be occurring with VooFoo’s Mantis Burn Racing.  The release trailer has 12/10/16 as the release date, but VooFoo has announced that it will hit Xbox One, PS4 and Steam on 10/12/16 although it has been on Steam Early Access since July 5th at $12.99.  The game looks to be an old-school top-down racer and frankly, looks pretty fun to me.  It will feature four-player split screen, single-player campaign and upgrades that will be similar to what is expected in RPGs.

Below is the launch date trailer, game features and some screen grabs from the official website.
