King of Speed is live

Play as your favorite runner to determine who gets crowned King on January 1st in SpeedRunners

King of Speed is our way of determining who is the fastest character in the SpeedRunners universe. We will track wins of every character and aggregate them. On January 1st, the character who wins will get crowned King of Speed. 

There is absolutely no ARG going and no hidden content to uncover. 

Introducing SpeedRunners ORIGINS

It's a up to 2 hour single player campaign that takes runners through New Rush City to discover the origins of SpeedRunner. It helps players learn the game, has challenges and leaderboards. It might also seem very similar to the XBLIG version's single player campaign, because it is. We decided to reinclude this mode, allowing players to learn the game in a single player setting.
