Ever since it first drifted onto the scene, Mario Kart Tour players have been hoping to see the addition of true multiplayer gameplay. Thankfully, that very day is (kind of) upon us, with the launch of a beta test for select users.
Starting from today, 19th December, and running until 05:59 UTC on 27th December, a real-time multiplayer beta test will be available for anyone subscribed to the Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass. If you just so happen to have a trial of the Gold Pass running at the moment, you'll also be able to try it out, but anyone with no subscription will need to wait until the real thing rolls around.
The beta is being put in place "to make sure real-time multiplayer works as intended before it's made available to all players". Incidentally, that statement confirms our hopes that multiplayer will indeed be available to all players in the future, and not just those willing to pay for the subscription.
Are you a Gold Pass subscriber? Will you be checking out the beta? Let us know in the comments.
Great! Already used my trial, but it might get me back into the game for a bit at the full release
These multiplayer talks still leave me confused who the heck I've been racing against all this time.😅
@nhSnork The other “players” are bots disguised to look like real people.
@Bolt_Strike with all the behaviour and zany nicknames I've witnessed? TIL I don't qualify to perform Turing tests.
Could we get a livestream of the MKT multiplayer beta, just to see how it plays?
played it until it crashed. It ran 3 races over and over. Seemed odd. But its a start i guess
Only tried it on one race - couldn't catch up at all and it crashed before it ended. Willing to give it another shot, but it doesn't have much point to it yet. Maybe once it's out for everyone, it'll have more merit.
The only Nintendo mobile game I've consistently come back to is Fire Emblem Heroes. All of the other ones I've played for an hour and never touched again. That includes Mario Kart Tour, and I doubt that's changing any time soon
At least here in Africa (Uganda) it seems to not work. Wonder where the servers are hosted... Base game has worked fine up to this point. Keep getting communication error has occurred.
Been saving my trial just for this
@nhSnork Computer-controlled ghosts. The only thing significant is the usernames. It's glorified single-player right now.
