One For All: Mario Kart Tour Multiplayer Beta is Live for Everyone23 Jan 2020 0
The developers of Mario Kart Tour have been testing out a ‘true’ multiplayer system where players can race against each other in real-time. Since launch, all you’ve been able to do is race ‘ghosts’ of other players and the AI, which alters the dynamics of a competitive race.
The first beta test was only available to Gold Pass subscribers, but now everyone can get involved:
The second multiplayer test is here! This time around, all players, including #MarioKartTour Gold Pass subscribers, can participate. Race your friends by tapping Menu, and then Multiplayer in-game. pic.twitter.com/IYqKWNmIue— Mario Kart Tour (@mariokarttourEN) January 23, 2020
All you need to have done is unlocked at least one cup within the game, then you can go to the menu area and switch over to multiplayer. You can either race against people around the world, or share your location with the app and race against people in your local area by creating a lobby.
The beta test is due to run until Tuesday, January 28th. Any saved data generated during this test won’t be carried over when the mode gets its general release.
