We talk to Hanns from Anki about the new Anki Overdrive game. He takes us through everything we know about the game. Cars, Commanders, the new Game app, upgrades, weapons, tactics, price and date.
Cars and Weapons (SKULL and GROUNDSHOCK are included in Starter Kit):
SKULL – The car’s Pirate Core lets it sail across the track at high speed while its cannon rips through enemy hulls.
GROUNDSHOCK – Its PowerStation Core electrifies the track with split-second maneuvering and lightning-fast attacks. Don’t get in its way.
THERMO – Its Magma Core engine is old-school meets future. Using hyper-charged internal combustion, it not only burns up the track, it projects fire at anyone in range.
NUKE – Its Fusion Core can be charged up to unleash ultra-high energy blasts that tear through normal shields. Its cool exterior masks an unstable explosive interior.
GUARDIAN – The car’s Siren Core keeps the pursuit of victory going at full volume. Its piercing sonic attacks go right through armor and cause challengers to lose control.
BIGBANG – This armor-plated heavyweight’s Graviton Core creates massive shockwaves that send foes flying off course.
