SpeedRunners Xbox One Release: Everything to know about the new version

SpeedRunners isn't a new game per se, but it's new to Xbox One. It first released back in April 2016 on PC, Mac and Linux and has garnered a "Very Positive" Steam review since it debuted. 

It's a four-player competitive title that pits players against each other as they race to the end of each area, rife with rockets, power-ups, spikes and other weapons to keep things interesting. Simply put, it's a bunch of superheroes running around a city trying to outdo each other. That's SpeedRunners in a nutshell, but you can check out the trailer below if that doesn't quite paint you a good picture of what to expect. 

If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you can pick it up for free after June 1, but if not it'll be on sale, too, for $14.99.
