Bots!

We want you to meet the newest members of the Liftoff team: “bots”. They have been training with us the last few weeks with one goal in mind: challenge you for a race at any time you want, even when you play offline! It’s not a real race when you’re the only one on the track, so these guys and girls will do their best to match your skill in singleplayer races.

They’ll join you in the game on StrawBale01 and StrawBale02. They are hard at work mastering the other tracks as well!

To activate the bots go to Options > Game > Ghost mode > Bots.

The Green

A parking lot, a forest, a sports arena , the Champs-Élysées and a giant mining pit… How about some rolling green hills under a sunny blue sky?

We’re happy to introduce “The Green”, a new environment available in this update, featuring an beautiful and open golf course for you to explore. Where Hannover and The Pit offered a multitude of freestyle opportunities, The Green is designed with racing in mind. We expect it to become a favorite environment for many track builders among you!
