What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The core features of the game are stable and fun already so there is no reason to not let players enjoy them. However, there are still lots of ideas for new features, content and game modes to be added before the game is called full, and the Early Access period allows the community be heard while the development continues.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The initial plan is to release the full version in 6-12 months but that will be reconsidered during the Early Access period.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“What will actually get added will be decided based on player feedback but some possibilities include:
- Single player campaign (either a simple tutorial or a more complex campaign with AI)
- New game modes like vehicle soccer and battle
- New built-in levels and other content
- More UI polish and other usability improvements”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core features (online multiplayer, editors, content sharing, customization etc.) are stable and the game is fun to play already. Before Early Access, closed beta testing was going on for months. What is still coming is more content, features and polish.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Currently, there are no plans to change the price. This might be re-evaluated during the Early Access period.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main point of the Early Access is to let the players help decide what the full game will be. People can give feedback and directly suggest new features and improvements.

About This Game

Turbo Sliders Unlimited is a spiritual successor of many classic top-down racing games, but in 3D and with modern online features and extensive customization and modding possibilities. It goes far beyond being just a racing game - it is a community driven platform where anyone can create their own levels, vehicles and game modes. It can be played as a serious esports game or as a fun casual game. It can be played alone, as online multiplayer or as local multiplayer.

The game is already fully playable with most main features implemented, but many new features are still to be added and old ones polished. Feel free to join the Discord server to stay up to date with the news and affect development by communicating with the developers!
