Gameplay[]

Single Race Mode[]

In Single Race mode, the player competes against four computer-controlled opponents. There are 10 circuit cups and each of them consists of 3 races. Every racetrack has 2 different terrains: asphalt and dirt, and each terrain affects the gameplay of some characters. The characters with the ability to Jump are equally the same speed on both terrains, characters with the ability to Drive on Two Wheels have a much slower speed while driving on dirt than driving on asphalt, and characters with the ability to Ram have a much faster speed while driving on dirt than driving on asphalt. The player can also boost, which is refilled everytime the player completes a lap.

Field Missions Mode[]

In Field Missions mode, the player has an objective, which is: infiltrate on a certain place, escape from a certain place, collect a certain amount of items or hide from security guards. The player has different abilities depending on the field mission's objective, those abilities can be: Turn Invisible, Disable an Object, Break an Object or Retrieve an Object.

Multiplayer Mode[]

In Multiplayer mode, the player competes against a maximum number of 3 other players in an exclusive Piston Cup/World Grand Prix racetrack. Lightning McQueen is the default Player 1 choice, while Francesco Bernoulli is the default Player 2 choice.

Playable Characters[]
