Anki Overdrive X52 Supertruck blasts opponents off the race trackOne of the newest Supertruck vehicles in the Anki Overdrive racing set can attack other cars Mad Max-style in a new Takeover game mode, controlled using a phone or tablet.

[MUSIC] For those not familiar with [UNKNOWN] Overdrive, it's a smart racetrack where you control the vehicle's speed, weapons and lane changes from a supported iOS and Android device. You can race against cars in AI mode or against a friend with corresponding sound effects playing from the device. So here we have Ground Shock, which is my favorite one, and here we have Skull. I like Skull. He makes me feel like a bad guy. Today, I'm here to introduce one of the newest additions to the Anki Overdrive family. It's the X52 super truck. Designed by Hollywood car designer Harald Belker, the X52 has a pulse ram. Where, if used at the right time, can blast opponents off the track. And this is all done by dedicated flashing lights, and not some space aged laser show. Possibly in a later generation. The trucks are a little more pricey than the cars at $59. With these new tracks come a new game mode, Take Over. Once you put the truck on the track, you have that game mode. After you scan the track, you have to chase the truck. One of the opponents have to weaken the truck. Whoever weakens it the most gets to play it. In takeover players start each match in their chosen super car. Anyone that can break to the super truck defenses will take control of the vehicle to wreck havoc on their opponent until the other player disables them and takes command of the super truck. So pretend I'm ground truck. And my father is X-52. So I'm blasting him. [SOUND] There's my dad. Knock him more. [MUSIC]
