If you haven’t tried the latest additions from Motorsport Games Australia, you might want to check them out now a there’s been a new KartKraft KartKross update released, tweaking and improving the lightweight, 120hp, missiles.
Kartcross, or “crosskart” began in the 1980s in Scandinavia and has spread around the world as a cheap and effective way to race using motorcycle engines in a rollcage and chassis weighing around 300kg, and offering a 0-60mph time under 3 seconds. Normally they tend to be used for off-road and rallycross racing, but they were also added to KartKraft in an update at the end of October, giving you a new challenge on the tarmac circuits included with the title so far.
The news of the update also mentions the developers are gearing up for the end of the year, and the much-anticipated multiplayer update. Which will definitely be a major improvement for the game, and something many virtual kart racers are looking forward to.
In the meantime, the 262 MB download should at least make it more fun to practice and race against the AI in preparation for human opponents. Especially when you’ll need to plan for those open wheels getting tangled up if you’re too close to other drivers.
