'Monster Racing League' Available On Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

Monster Racing League is a fast-paced multiplayer combat racing game that has been crafted for maximum fun.

In Monster Racing League the monsters drive themselves, freeing up players to time the use of offensive and defensive abilities to disrupt their opponents. Races are short, hectic, sometimes reckless, but always fun! Select a monster and equip your abilities before each race. Manually control nitro speed and play offensive/defensive abilities while your monster drives.

Get in on the action with standard races contested over short, multi rounds of mayhem with six or more players. The monster with the most points at the end takes home the glory! Rack up Knucklebones as you compete, unlocking new monsters and upgrades along the way.

Experience the thrill of Monster Racing League with friends! Compete in online multiplayer lobbies or host your own games and invite your pals. With practice mode available, train against a variety of in-house monsters and hone your skills. Get ready to unleash your competitive spirit!

Monster Racing League is also about the tracks. With unique features and themes, each one is a wild ride of its own. Different tracks can match different monsters' skills and strategies. So if you want to come out on top, you’ll need to learn the twists and turns of each one.

Developer Flightless announced that Monster Racing League is now available on Steam Early Access for $9.99 and will remain so for three to four months.

“With Monster Racing League we’re really looking for that multiplayer party-game vibe. We’ve removed the steering component of a kart racing type game, but added strategy in the use of abilities, boosters and manually controlling your nitro speed, which keeps you on the edge of your seat. It’s highly competitive as well as being easy to pick up and play,” said Flightless Founder/Creative Director John O’Reilly.

“At Early Access release you’ll be able to play most of the core game. You’ll be able to compete in online multiplayer lobbies or host your own games and invite your pals. With practice mode available, you can also train against a variety of in-house monsters and hone your skills. You’ll be able to rack up Knucklebones (our in-game currency) as you compete, unlocking a limited set of new monsters and abilities and booster upgrades along the way. We’re launching with three or four of our core race tracks which are a combination of multi-lap looped tracks and point-to-point sprints. However we’re planning on releasing additional tracks as we progress through to full release as well.
You will only be able to randomize the look of your monster at Early Access phase, with the goal being to bring full customization once we release.

Having said all this, there will be some parts of the game that we are still working on and refining. So every now and then there could be something unexpected that happens that we are probably aware of and working on, but nevertheless feel free to let us know in the comments.”

“This Early Access version of the game has a limited set of features but still a substantial amount of gameplay and fun to be had. Our plans for full release are to expand on the Early Access foundations but have additional features such as:

  • All new abilities and boosters
  • All new tracks
  • New monsters and tribes
  • Full monster cosmetic customization and shop
  • Cars, helmets, armor and other cosmetic items
  • New match types e.g. tournaments, team play, capture the flag

Unleash your inner collector with Monster Racing League's highly customizable monsters! Drawing inspiration from designer vinyl toys, each monster is a desirable item that you'll want to add to your collection. While the Early Access release offers randomized looks, for the full release we're planning for even more extensive customization options. Get ready to create your ultimate monster driving team!

Monsters each have their own history and abilities. Fire, River, Mountain, and Sky, are the foundation tribes of the league, each with unique color palettes and features, but all new tribes are on the horizon. And for the ultimate collectors out there, don't miss out on our Premium Monsters, featuring exclusive materials that will have your heart racing. Available soon as a DLC pack.

Get revved up for Monster Racing League! It's the perfect game for both spectators and streamers. The races are short and sweet, packed with non-stop action. Plus, there's no need to stick to a boring old racing game camera angle. You can use custom cameras to capture all the epic moments and share them with your audience. And don't forget about the taunts and messages! They're perfect for fueling player rivalries. Grab some friends and start your engines, because with multiplayer mode, you can host your own races and stream to your heart's content.
