Anki Drive getting new cars and tracks, plus a new Race Mode
The folks at Anki Drive have released two new cars, two new tracks, and a new mode for their real-world iOS racing game today. Corax is one of the new cars, which is able to mount multiple weapons, while Hadion has a turbo boost function available right away. As for tracks, Crossroads adds the first intersection to the mix, while Bottleneck has a particularly narrow section which should be a welcome challenge.
