Party Racing Title ‘Obliteracers’ Now Available On Xbox One

Obliteracers, the Australian developed party racing title that allows 8 players to use the same screen, is now available on Xbox One for $13.99 (USD). Obliteracers was released on the console on August 26 following releases on PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 4.

In his review of Obliteracers on PlayStation 4, Analog Addiction’s Devon McCarty said that Obliteracers “stands as one of the better party racing games available on the market”.

The team behind Obliteracers were influenced by other couch multiplayer games like Micro Machines, Mashed, Crash Team Racing and Mario Kart. The concept came about through a willingness to play couch multiplayer with their children, and an observation that there are a lack of same-screen combat racing games that support more than four players.

The concept of Obliteracers was approved by funding body Film Victoria which allowed them to produce a demo that was noticed by Microsoft and Sony at GDC

You can see the crazy racing in the Steam gameplay trailer below (please note the 16 player local player count is restricted to the PC version).
