Anki Drive getting two new cars, two new tracks, Race Mode

Anki Drive, the robotics-based video game that takes place in the real world, is being expanded with new cars, new tracks and a new mode, developer Anki announced today.

The $199 game ships with two cars, and one track that features a slightly tweaked oval layout. Two additional tracks will be available May 6: Crossroads (image above), which features an intersection, and Bottleneck (image here), where the track narrows to a single lane in two different spots. Each additional track will cost $99.

Anki is launching two new cars today, which will bring the game's lineup to six vehicles. Corax supports multiple weapons, while Hadion is a speed demon that comes with the Turbo Boost upgrade pre-installed. Each of the cars costs $69, the same price as the existing add-on cars, Rho and Katal. You can see the new vehicles below.

Also launching today in Anki Drive is Race Mode. Available as a free update to the iOS app, Race Mode allows players to use weapons just like they would in the existing Battle Mode, except in a race that can last for 15, 30 or 45 laps.

The upcoming additions to Anki Drive are now available for pre-order or purchase on the game's website. For more on Anki Drive, check out our hands-on impressions from last October.
