UK-based indie studio Glitchers has announced that Drive Buy, its upcoming vehicle combat game, will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC on 12th March.
Said to be inspired by games like Twisted Metal, Rocket League, and even Mario Kart, Drive Buy is described as a “short-session multiplayer vehicle combat game with a delivery twist.” You’re tasked with using over-the-top power-ups to take down your competitors as you complete as many deliveries as possible, and there are three different game modes to check out:
• 4 Player, head-to-head Online Battles
• Seamless AI Play designed to auto fill the roster during play
• 3 game modes –
Delivery Battle – Hustle the most deliveries and shake down rival drivers with powerups found around the map. Strategic, unpredictable & full of surprises.
PayDay – Hold onto the most coins on the map whilst dodging power ups left, right & centre
Piggy Bank – Tag… with a Pig! Hold the pig to earn coins, other players hunt you down keeping the action really focused and players tight.
• Choose from 6 diverse characters with more added in each season update.
• Vehicles have unique handling and stats so make sure you pick the best for each mode.
• Find and unlock an array of Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary and even Special Giftable Cosmetic Items for every character
Glitchers co-founder, Hugo Scott-Slade, says, “At its heart, Drive Buy is a vehicle-based party game with intuitive, pick up & play controls, we wanted to create an experience which avoids the frustration of track-based racing games – hence a street-based delivery battler was created! We want everyone to be in with a chance of winning – so even the player in last position can turn it around and steal a last-minute victory. Or they can flood the leader’s screen with emotes and emojis to get revenge.”
If you can’t wait for that 12th March launch date on Switch, a free demo is live on Steam starting from today.
