SpeedRunners gets What If's

This Thursday, September 12, we are starting the first What If...  event. 

Starting at 8am GMT, the SpeedHookers! event will modify SpeedRunners into a grappling hook massacre.

All items will become grappling hooks for 24 hours. Based on feedback from PAX's minibooth, players love grapple-hook-overtaking others. So what happens if everyone constantly overtakes each other? Find out this Thursday. 

We wanted to have some sort of crazy event go on every week, and decided doing "What If..." scenarios.

What if everyone has only grappling hooks (SpeedHookers)? What if the floor is ice (IceRunners)? What if it starts to rain missiles (SpeedRapture)?

The idea is to have something different every week. To make the game different for a day. Fortunately being in Early Access, we can do exactly that - along with major updates to the game.
