Australian developer Black Delta have revealed the first gameplay trailer for their upcoming kart racer, KartKraft. You can check it out below:

“Originally entitled KartSim, KartKraft is the evolution of a university game prototype created by ex-kart racer and Black Delta CEO, Zach Griffin. KartKraft lets players race karts capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds, with triple the cornering forces of a road car.

Scheduled for a Q1 2016 release on Steam’s Early Access, Unreal Engine 4 powered KartKraft, is an intense, hyper realistic kart racing game with real kart physics, laser scanned circuits, and a never-before-seen racing sandbox mode. Players can customize their avatar, kart and team with products from partners like FREEM, Alpinestars, CRG, IAME, MIR, Sparco, Arai, Arrow, Monaco, Praga, Sodikart and many more.”

KartKraft allows you to travel all over the world taking part in hectic races, offers realistic kart physics and even allows you to create your own karting team. It feels like it’s the ultimate karting sim – there’s no blue shells to wipe you out here!

I remember I had a karting game on the original Playstation and I was completed hooked to it – I think I’ll have to try out KartKraft when it launches and see if I can resume my virtual karting career…

KartKraft is coming to PC via Steam Early Access sometime in Q1 2016.
