Co-op Soapbox Racer, Zeepkist, Receives Huge Version 5 Update

Steelpan Interactive has released a huge update for their co-operative soapbox racer, Zeepkist, including new cosmetics, materials and gameplay elements.

Zeepkist Version 5 Update

Following last month’s Steam Workshop update that added workshop support and the sharing of levels between players, Steelpan Interactive has released the Version 5 update. Throughout Zeepkist’s time in Early Access, it has grown substantially, with significant updates being released frequently. Version 5 is no exception as it aims to add a slew of new content to the game in order to improve the player’s overall experience.

The new content being added includes new adventure levels, halfpipe and “sausage blocks”, neon and sand materials to build with, sticky cactuses and tumbleweeds to add additional distractions to racetracks, as well as a Synthwave skybox.
