    Black Delta have released a nice hotlap video of the soon to be released Atlanta Motorsport Park coming to KartKraft.

    When we wrote about the upcoming new track for KartKraft back on Saturday, plenty of fans were pretty unfamiliar with this excellent little venue over in America, so Black Delta have looked to remedy that with a freshly recorded hot lap behind the wheel of their virtual racing kart - and oh boy does it look realistic!

    Although we don't yet know when this new piece of content is set to drop for the simulation, it doesn't look like the team have much to do in order to get it into a release ready state - so expect it heading our way pretty soon indeed....

    This title looks better every time I see it. That track looks like a lot of fun as well.

    The video featured in the article is actually Go Kart Club of Victoria, which already exists in KartKraft.
    I was watching it, and thinking... no, that's not the AMS kart track.
    As Jesse Bruce stated above, you can find the correct video on KartKraft's Youtube channel.

    Of course, just a little mistake--I've mis-linked things a few times.
    The AMS kart track is a lot of fun, and unique with it's elevation changes and blind corners. I have it in a few other simulators, but I can't wait to try it out in KartKraft.

    Looks fantastic!

    Glad to see that they've also embraced most of the current sim-related technology with this title as well.
    VR, Motion, TrackIR (#soon), etc.

    These are great times for sim racing in general, aside from the few holdouts who are actually dropping features or poorly implementing them (looking at YOU Codies ;)).

    It's such fun to drive in VR, yes it's still early access and it can be seen in some places of the game, but the feeling is great. I can't wait for multiplayer as racing with AI just doesn't cut it for me and I can see myself being indulged for long hours in it!

    Great to see the real thing in the proper video. Hope they will be including all the layouts (as does rF2). It is a world-class kart track, that's for sure.

    This sim just gets better and better with time, and it looks incredible already.

    It's also refreshing to see an Unreal Engine 4 based racing sim with good video performance ;)

    As a former 125cc shifter and 250cc SuperKart driver, I've had my eyes on this since day one, with hesitation. I think after seeing the new video of Atlanta, its time to roll.

    Couple of questions. Does it have multiplayer (I heard it did and didn't or will be... or something).
    And I assume there are KZ (shifters) in the title?

    But my biggest one, are there any plans to step up to the big boy 250 SuperKarts along with your longer GP tracks for the 250's/450's?

    Looks fantastic now :thumbsup:

    There is not multiplayer racing but there is an online leaderboard with ghost karts to compete against. This is actually pretty fun as it automatically loads in the next fastest ghost each time you beat your PB. There are not shifters either and I'm not sure if there will be.

    @CreamyCornCob - Confirming KZ2 is coming in July with the first multiplayer preview (practice only) coming in August. We're also not ruling any classes out - 250cc would be incredible to drive.

    We've added a roadmap to https://kartkraftgame.com which now has the next 6 releases mapped out. We'll be adding further releases during EA.

    Fantastic to hear on the KZ2! And So glad to hear MP will at least begin to evolve :thumbsup: And d*mn glad to hear 250's aren't being ruled out, awesome!
    They are a blast to drive. 140+mph, 1" off the ground, 2-4g's and a lot more time to think vs 125's and sprint tracks (although we ran on big's like RA, Laguna etc with 'um).

    Is it playable with Direct Drive wheels now? When I last tried it was somewhat broken, felt great on the old T300 though!

    Superkarts hardly race on karting tracks but mostly on regular car-motor racing tracks or not?
    Licensing of those assets is really expensive compared to karting tracks.
