Although it seems like the Warhammer universe is able to extend its influence to most genres, perhaps the racing portion of gaming would be one that might not match. However, that is not stopping Games Workshop, PLAION, and Caged Element from giving it a go with Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks.
This will be a brand new free-to-play car combat racing game, where players can engage each other in class-based multiplayer battles and see who comes out on top. It may already sounds like a blast destroying your opponents and sending them to an early demise, but the game will bring more than just straight-up destruction to the table.
In Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks, players can expect to experience different game modes, such as Chase Mode where capturing points becomes key, or in Convoy Mode, where defence is as important as offence. To do so, there will also be different rigs to choose from to ensure a well-rounded team, with damage, tank, and support categories of vehicles up for choosing.
With 16-player matches set to be the norm for Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks, it promises to be a road trip unlike any other, and for fans of the Warhammer universe, this is another way to get your fix, especially if you have been pining for more games like Twisted Metal.
Developed Caged Element is well suited to give this a go, having previously made Grip, another car combat racer. Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks will kick off an alpha playtest this week, and interested players can go check it out on Steam now.
