Larkspur, Calif. – May 9th, 2018 – Codemasters and Deep Silver today confirmed that the ONRUSH open beta will launch at 2 p.m. BST on Thursday, May 17th and will conclude at 10 a.m. BST on Monday, May 20th on both the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One. Players who pre-order the game digitally on PlayStation 4 will get early access to the ONRUSH beta and can smash their way through the pack starting on May 15th.
The open beta will teach players the basics of ONRUSH, with an interactive tutorial, before throwing them straight into the action in either ‘Superstar Practice’, where they’ll be able to hone their skills against AI competitors, or multiplayer.
Superstar Practice can be enjoyed solo or with a group of friends in co-operative mode. When playing solo, players will be able to take advantage of ONRUSH’s incredible Photomode*. Simply pause the madness, snap away using our advanced editing tools and filtering, before sharing the images with the world.
Players will also be able to dominate The Stampede in multiplayer mode. Lock horns with rivals from around the globe in exclusive 6v6 multiplayer events. Two beautiful yet deadly tracks, two game modes and four vehicle classes will become available throughout the beta with elements including night races and seasonal changes cycling throughout.
As players levels up through the beta, in both Superstar Practice and multiplayer, they can unlock stylish rewards for the final game in the form of Crashtags and Tombstones to drop and display when being wrecked or taking down rivals while in the heat of the action.
