A free app update has been released for Anki Overdrive, a product that converges toys, videogames and robotics, allowing players to customize their battle-racing experience with modifiers.
Anki have released an InfoGraphic (see below) showing some of the impressive stats that players have racked up since Anki Overdrive launched late last year.
Modifiers will help gamers battle-race in their own exciting way. Activated while in Open Play mode, users can choose from one of two modifiers including “Balance Cars” and “One Shot”. In triggering Balance Cars, all upgrades will be removed from each commander, setting the stage for the ultimate true test of skill as players level the playing field. With the One Shot modifier enabled, players can keep the intensity at an all-time high as each commander is equipped with a golden gun where one well-aimed shot will disable their opponent’s vehicle.
The new update also brings changes to the track scanning system allowing users to get right back into the action after a game without having to re-scan the track layout if it has not changed. Conversely, if a player decides last minute to alter the battlefield after they have already hit the track scan button, they can hit re-scan without the need to go back to the beginning.
