Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks is a free-to-play, class-based, multiplayer racing-shooter mayhem with Orks set in the badass Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Fans of speed and dakka can now live out their Warhammer 40,000 fantasies, driving scrappy vehicles and unloading bombastic weapons in a Speedwaaagh to the death.      

Players can choose from various classes of vehicle, including damage, tank and support wagons, with distinct abilities that target a variety of playstyles. They’ll drive them to victory across multiple maps in this explosive take on the combat racing and shooter genres.

This fresh take on the vehicular shooter has players racing to capture points and fighting for bigger scores, with teams pushing pedal to metal in their scrappy gas guzzlers. 

Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks is not just any ol’ vehicular combat game, DIS IS DA KULT TO OF SPEED!

Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks will be roaring into Open Beta today, allowing players to try Kill Konvoy, a unique and stompy new game mode.

The Open Beta is available on Steam starting today, May 23, at 10 AM PST and will be live until May 30 at 10 AM PST. 

Kill Konvoy is the new and explosive high ork-tane racing mode where two teams of eight each have a giant Stompa that they’re helping to get to the finish line first. Players must strategize using effective vehicle combinations and kunnin’ tactics to destroy their opponents and gain morale, while also picking up powerful bombs to chuck at the enemy Stompa and slow it down. Also available in the Open Beta are seven playable vehicles and two epic battlefields for players to rampage across and leave their competition buried on. 

To access the Open Beta on Steam, users will need to set up or log into PROS, an online services account for upcoming games from PLAION, Saber Interactive, Deep Silver, and more. PROS accounts offer additional in-game rewards, extended stats, community benefits, and other features. 

Game key features:

  • 16 players matches, featuring a variety of badass vehicles to choose from and richly decorated maps to battle in. No two matches ever end in the same way!
  • Various classes of vehicles, with 7 unique vehicles to choose from, meaning players will always find one that fits their mood and playstyle.
  • In Chase Mode, teams must speed to capture points and fight to control them in succession. Convoy Mode (not playable during the Alpha phase) is all about protecting your team’s formidable Convoy while attacking the enemy’s and battling in-between as they race to finish first. Both game modes are chaotic, unique and full of iconic Warhammer 40,000 high-speed brutality!
  • Snazzy visuals and explosive chaos powered by Unreal Engine 5 will give players the chance to live out the ultimate Warhammer 40,000 fantasy like never before.
