Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a new video showing new features being added to the game.
The first part of the video showcases the Snake Pit race track on Clio released as a surprise in alpha 3.17.2, which is quite cool, but even more interesting is what comes in the second part of the video.
We see that alpha 3.8 will mark the addition of Mario Kart-style race tracks within the convention centers to be used with the small but cute Greycat PTV buggies.
You can watch it below.
