ONRUSH Beta coming May 17th – Achievements revealed

The ONRUSH Beta is launching on May 17th at 2pm UK time and will run through to midnight on Sunday May 20th on Xbox One and PS4. Gamers who pre-order on the PS4 only will have a two day head-start and have access to the game from May 15th.

The beta will contain an interactive tutorial and both single player and multiplayer modes, along with a photo mode in the single player game. Two tracks are also available, with both Big Dune Beach and Volcano Lake featured in the beta. Two of the x game modes are available to play also. In Overdrive mode players are divided into two teams. They must chain together Boost moves and RUSH to earn points for the team. The round ends when a team reaches a set number of points that varies per map. In this game mode, it’s also the best of three rounds.

In the Countdown mode players are again divided into two teams and must drive through gates along the track. Each car that travels through a gate adds time onto the countdown clock for their team. The round ends when a team’s clock reaches zero, with the victor being the team with time left on the clock when that happens. The Countdown mode was the game mode I played at EGX Rezzed last month and it was an immense amount of fun!

The following four vehicles and their special abilities will be included in the beta.
