There’s a new player on the vehicular battle royale block. Granted, that’s a pretty sparsely populated block, with H1Z1’s Auto Royale being the only notable occupant, but now it’s got some company, in the form of NMC Studios’ and Skybound Games’ notmycar, which launched into early access last week. We’re going to need a bigger garage.
notmycar (yes, one word, no caps) airdrops its four-wheeled participants into a battlefield that currently hosts 40 players, though NMC has plans to increase that to the 75-100 range. Once on the ground, it’s the usual battle royale loop of gathering weapons and other abilities, hunting, killing, surviving, and so forth, until there’s just one player left. But with cars!
Besides the increased player cap, other planned improvements, as mentioned on the notmycar Steam page include new game modes beyond battle royale, a prestige system, an additional 10k map, and the expected assortment of new weapons and abilities.
Even if you don’t plan on playing, take a moment to check out the message from “Turbo Racington,” purported CEO of NMC Studios. It’s full of goofiness, including a description of notmycar as “the fastest battle royale game on Earth because it’s played with cars and cars are faster than people.” Like, duh.
