Stampede: Racing Royale sets off on first Steam Playtest from 27 July

First chance to join the herd in 60-player battle royale matches

Leamington Spa, UK – 18 July 2023: It's time for a warm-up lap of the world's wildest race! Stampede: Racing Royale, the 60-player battle royale racer from developer Sumo Leamington and publisher Secret Mode, is revving up for its first Steam Playtest on 27-31 July.

Registered players will get the chance to jump into the fast-paced, chaotic races and battles of Stampede: Racing Royale for the first time. Eight race maps and one battle arena will be available for players to test out, with over 50 customisation options on offer to stand out from the rest of the herd. More tracks, arenas, and customisation options are currently in development.

Stampede: Racing Royale is designed to evolve and grow around its community, and so this Playtest will contain early work-in-progress content. All players will receive a feedback form during the Playtest to provide their thoughts and suggestions, and highlight any bugs found in this early version of the game. As data is reset between each Playtest, progression and unlocked items will not carry over to future Playtests or Early Access.

Stampede: Racing Royale's first Playtest will take place on Steam on 27-31 July, with a Steam Early Access release due later in 2023.
