Nick Burcombe talks the Table Top Racing: World Tour Tropical Ice Pack

Following the release of the Tropical Ice Pack for Table Top Racing: World Tour, we’ve managed to get some exclusive comments from our friends at Playrise Digital.

The pack released on August 30th in NA and August 31st in EU, retailing at $4.99 / £3.99, and is currently 20% off for Playstation Plus subscribers, adding a ton of new features to the base game.

Let Nick Burcombe, co-creator of Wipeout and lead on Table Top Racing tell you all about it…

Greetings.

Firstly, let me start by saying a “MASSIVE THANK YOU” to everyone, including the 4.5 million Playstation Plus subscribers  who downloaded Table Top Racing: World Tour in May!

It’s been a fantastic launch for us. The feedback and engagement from #TeamTTR has been absolutely brilliant. We’ve had a lot of fun watching your videos and seeing you absolutely hammer that tricky 1 Million Drift challenge…with two guys in particular – Karl and Scot – deserving a special mention for reaching well over 30 million in the drift event. Incredible car control under pressure!

More massive “CONGRATULATIONS” are due to all of you who earned the Platinum trophy and of course those that have tweeted about it too. We’ve been actively seeking you out and re-tweeting your #TTRLegend status. Great to see so many get through the whole game.

We’re really pleased with the response and feedback from Playstation gamers in particular and we’re hearing you loud and clear! It’s very exciting to know there’s a large and enthusiastic fan base out there and we’ll do what we can to keep it going, bringing you as many of  the features you’ve requested as we can.

At launch, of course, we added our first DLC, the “Supercharger Pack” and the uptake has been great. For those of you who don’t know what’s in the Supercharger Pack, it’s got 4 brilliant new cars, the Indiana Jones inspired desert circuit called “Can Ya Dig It?” as well as 3 full championships and 16 special events too.

As many of you might have noticed after the recent 1.05 Patch, the “Tropical Ice Pack” is our next DLC and that’s what we are talking about in this post…

On the 30th of August in the North American region and the 31st of August in the European region, the all-new “Tropical Ice Pack” DLC launched at $4.99/€4.99/£3.99. And there’s also a special offer of 20% discount exclusively for PS Plus members.

So what is in this “Tropical Ice Pack”?

 

Two New Race Tracks!

You were screaming for more tracks and we heard you! So we’re continuing TTR’s World Tour and jetting off to two completely new locations where you can race on 8 new courses plus much more!

“Life’s A Beach” is set in a funky new Juice-Bar on the warm, sandy beaches of Brazil, while the second location is the luxury spa and ski resort “Yellowsnow Piste”, set high in the European Alps featuring a fire-pit, Jacuzzi and random snowball fights!

Both locations have 4 new race circuits built into them, giving you a total of 8 new courses, but unlike the previous tracks, the four routes are set over two completely separate areas of the venue. Of course, you can use all 8 routes in your multiplayer games too.

New Game Play? New Game Play!

Two new game modes are now incorporated into the game “Checkpoint” and “Overtake” modes offer two new ways to play and they are tough! In fact, the three full new Championships are tougher than everything you’ve played so far and so we reckon that getting 3 Stars on everything is going to be a decent challenge for you. Watch out for those blocking AI cars in overtake mode 😉

Six New Trophies!

One of the most requested features is more Trophies! So in this pack there are 6 new trophies to get. 3 bronze, 2 Silver and a Gold! Well worth the effort.

16 New Special Events!

Many of you wrote to say how much you enjoyed being able to bend the rules a bit to get 3-Stars on all those Special Events. So we’ve decided to add 16 more for you. Some of these are a bit sneaky and will definitely require a bit more out-of-the-box thinking…as well as some decent racing skills too.

So, there you have it. The “Tropical Ice Pack” is out NOW and we hope that both newcomers and #TeamTTR enjoy playing this new DLC pack as much as we did making it. As always, we welcome your input, social connection and feedback too.

Thanks again for your support. Let’s keep this World Tour rolling.
