ONRUSH is Crashing into Open Beta
The masters of the racing genre, Codemasters, have revealed the day, date and time for the kick off of their upcoming beta for ONRUSH. The beta will be available for PS4 and Xbox One, beginning on Thursday, May 17th at 11 PM AEST and will slam the brakes on at 7 PM on Monday, May 21st.
Participants will experience the basics of ONRUSH via an interactive tutorial, the action of Superstar Practice, or the games multiplayer mode. Superstar Practice can be enjoyed solo or with a group of friends in co-op play, but when you’re playing solo you’ll also get to tinker with the games Photo mode.
The multiplayer mode pits players against one another in 6v6 encounters, with the experience limited to two tracks, two different modes and four vehicle classes. Across those maps, you’ll experience them at night or in broad daylight and through all the seasons.
Any rewards you unlock through the duration of the beta will be recognised in the final release in the form of stylish Crashtags and Tombstones.
The full details and contents of the Beta are highlighted below:
