VooFoo Studios has today announced that the first two downloadable content packs for its top-down racer, Mantis Burn Racing, are available for download.
The ‘Snowbound Pack’ introduces a brand-new snow-themed race environment to the game, featuring four uniquely challenging new tracks. Put the freeze on your opponents as you jump, bump and slide your way across dangerous, wintry snowscapes that will push your driving skills to the limits. The pack also adds season’s two and three of the Veteran Class career, with 34 extra events to complete.
The ‘Elite Class’ DLC pack adds a brand-new class of three ‘Elite’ Hover vehicles. Put your driving skills to the ultimate test with these thrillingly-fast, futuristic-looking vehicles that use powerful turbines to hover above the ground making them less affected by the tracks’ surface. Hover vehicles also come with their own 12 event ‘Elite’ career season that is unlocked immediately and only available with this DLC pack.
