The open beta will introduce you to the basics of ONRUSH with an interactive tutorial before thrusting players into ‘Superstar Practice’ with a selection of vehicles to choose from.

A small selection of multiplayer options will also be present in the open beta with two maps in the form of Big Dune Beach and Crater Lake.

We recently had a chance to play ONRUSH and came away impressed by its ambition but worried somewhat about how it all gels together:

‘There’s a lot I like about ONRUSH. There’s an undeniable sense of high adrenaline in every race, and it’s nice having a modern arcade racer – something which feels all too rare. It’s also welcome to see a genuinely unique driving game that looks to break the rules.’
