Arcade racer Hotshot Racing has proved a hit since launching with Xbox Game Pass this past September, and a new, completely free DLC expansion has now been announced for the game which drops today.

The Big Boss Bundle introduces four colourful new tracks, along with a new Grand Prix championship and a brand new game mode called Barrel Barrage, in which barrels explode on contact with competitors’ cars.

You can check all of this out in the trailer above. Curve Digital, Sumo Nottingham and Lucky Mountain Games have also announced today that the game has been downloaded more than half a million times since its release.

Barrel Barrage Mode
Take Hotshot Racing’s trademark breakneck speed and add explosive barrels to the mix. Launched from the rear of each vehicle, barrels explode on contact with competitors’ cars, inflicting damage and making each dash for the chequered flag more perilous.

Boss Level Grand Prix
Expand the roster of championships in Hotshot Racing with the Boss Level Grand Prix including four new high-speed circuits - 8 Ball Highway, Cargo Chaos, Frozen Freeway and Surf City - each with visually arresting vistas to zip past. All game modes, including Barrel Barrage, are available across all tracks introduced in the Boss Level Grand Prix.
