Stampede: Racing Royale second playtest adds friends and parties
Stampede: Racing Royale entered its second Steam Playtest this week, with new features added to increase the chaos. Friends and a party system are now included, allowing players to connect with their Steam friends. A party of up to five players can also be created through Steam invites.
