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.

  1. It is a shame that the reviews are so bad on this game. Steam can be a big hole if your game finds itself or starts on this path.

    • Low population is a much stronger deterrent in my experience. Total review score is of little consequence, although some individual negative reviews can be an important factor (and low everall score will make people pay closer attention to them).
