It’s true we like to keep ourselves busy here at VooFoo Studios but things have been so full-on lately that we barely had time to write this very blog. Still, we’re glad we did, as it’s packed to the rim with super-exciting Mantis Burn Racing® news!
Since we launched the game in October 2016 the reaction from both fans and critics has been overwhelmingly positive. Once the frenetic launch period was over, we turned our attention, pretty much immediately; to creating new content for the game. Today, we’re very excited to be able to tell you that the first new content packs are now available for download!
First up, the ‘Snowbound Pack’, which brings a brand-new snow-themed race environment to the game. Having listened to feedback from launch this is something we knew we wanted to deliver to really expand the depth and variety of the game play, thank you to everyone who shared their comments. We’re even more excited to be able to tell you that this pack is completely free-to-download and brings with it a massive update to the game by not only adding four new tracks, but also season’s two and three of the Veteran Class career. That’s a whopping 34 extra events to complete in your quest to be crowned Mantis Burn Racing® Champion!
The treacherous snow and ice covered terrain of the new tracks in ‘Snowbound’ – Crevasse, Salvage, Silo (personal fave) and Research Base – are sure to present a different type of driving challenge to the dusty sand dunes and tarmacked city streets that you’ve been used to racing around up to now!

We can’t wait to see how you jump, bump and slide your way across the new tracks!
Also available from today, is the ‘Elite Class’ DLC pack, which adds a brand-new class of ‘Elite’ Hover vehicles to the game. Strap yourself in and hold on to your hats, these futuristic-looking speed machines are seriously fast… You could say they are set to make your game play really take off!

Hover vehicles use powerful turbines to hover above the ground making them less affected by the tracks’ surface, which is something that you’re probably going to find most noticeable, and useful, when taking on the new Snowbound tracks. Your driving skills are going to be pushed to the limits by these ‘Elite Class’ vehicles, they have the capability to smash your previous fastest lap times but you’ll need to master their unique handling characteristics before you lay claim to topping the Global Leaderboards!
Hover vehicles are playable on any of the 12 reversible tracks in game and in all events. What’s more, they come with their own 12 event ‘Elite’ career season that is unlocked immediately and only available with this DLC pack!
The ‘Elite Class’ DLC includes:
- Light-weight Hover vehicle.

All this fantastic new content is available right now and we can’t wait for you to check it out!
In addition to the new content contained in the DLC packs, we’ve also recently released a new game patch that brings further new features and updates the game! The details of which you can read about here.
To celebrate the release of the DLC packs we’ll be running a Double XP Weekend from Fri, March 31st to Sun, April 2nd, during which time players can earn double the XP in all areas of Mantis Burn Racing®. So don’t forget to fire up your engines during that period, download the DLC and take advantage of the double XP on offer!
We hope you enjoy the new content!
