We're delighted to announce that a brand new update is now live for Tracks! Tons of new objects have been added, including charming helicopters, planes and bikes - plus controller support is finally here!
Check out the brand new trailer we've made to mark the occasion:
Full Controller Support
Tracks can now be played with a controller!
This is our first pass at controller support, and we are looking to refine the controls over time. If you have any feedback please post in the controller feedback thread.
We've gone with Xbox controllers as the default, meaning that only the Xbox user interface is currently visible. But you can still play the game with alternate controllers such as the PS4 controller and the Steam controller.
A differently shaped rock
A bigger rock
There are quite a few rocks
I figured 5 was a good amount
Every track piece has been replaced to improve alignment and we've also overhauled textures for many of them. Not only does this improve visuals, but it should also fix some derailment bugs.
Below is the change log for this build. We'll have more content and features to show off within the coming weeks and we thank everyone who has joined us on this journey throughout development so far!
