Three, two one… battle racers, start your hyperspeed engines! Tastee Beverage Studios today announced that its new VR combat racing game, Bank Limit: Advanced Battle Racing, the multiplatform title that pushes the limits of fantasy racing, has now released and is available for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows PC on Steam for $49.99.

In development for over two years by a small team, the combat magnet racer features immersive VR graphics and a blinding sense of speed. As seen in today’s new launch trailer, Bank Limit ABR features intense pack racing, 20 gravity-defying tracks and three battle arenas, hyperspeed race cars capable of short flights under control, and deadly vehicular battles via head-controlled weaponry. The speed of the vehicles, which can exceed 9,000 MPH, is achieved through a true 1:1 physics model that accurately reflects the real world distances and velocity, albeit in a fun-oriented arcade style.

Bank Limit: ABR puts players in futuristic race cars that can hit ludicrous speeds while dealing punishment to rivals via head-aimed lasers and missiles. The ability to look in any direction to aim weapons, navigate upcoming turns or check status via in-car gauges makes driving and flying the ABR vehicles intuitive, so players can keep their focus on winning the race and destroying rivals. The game supports most controllers, including Vive controllers, Touch by Oculus (when available), the Steam Controller, Windows gamepads and keyboard/mouse, so racers can choose their preferred controller when playing on any platform.

“Bank Limit: ABR is the next evolution of combat racing, bringing futuristic weapons, roller coaster VR thrills and jet-powered flight to pack racing at Mach 10 velocity,” said Harley Benedict, Co-Founder and Lead Programmer of Tastee Beverage Studios. “Our goal is to bring players a fresh and immersive experience for Oculus, Vive or conventional PC, blending the fastest racing and the most explosive vehicular combat in a vibrant virtual world.”

Beyond the amazing VR immersion, Bank Limit: ABR is all about classic combat racing—with a twist. Players will mash the accelerator and blast away at rivals to reach the finish line first—even if it means they have to soar above the track to gain an advantage. Souped up with advanced tech, the ABR vehicles are capable of flight and players can blast into space for intervals of dogfighting. The game includes single player and multiplayer modes and 20 tracks set in three different worlds for racing combat with up to 25 cars on the track at once. Three battle arenas are also provided for vehicular FPS combat against up to three other human players and 100 AI drone ships. Up to four human players can join in cross-platform multiplayer racing, so Rift, Vive and even non-VR PC players will all be able to race and battle together.

Bank Limit: Advanced Battle Racing is now available on Steam for $49.99, with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows PC all supported with a single purchase. For more information, visit http://www.banklimit.com/.
