Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta has finally become available in the hit iOS and Android game, but only for select players. Mario Kart Tour fans have been waiting months for multiplayer functionality to be added after the Nintendo smartphone game launched in September. And almost three months after its initial launch the multiplayer beta has finally been added to Mario Kart Tour.
However, there’s a catch - with the Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta only available right now to those that subscribe to the Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass. The Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass costs £4.99 a month, but first time users can enjoy a two week free trial. And those who activate their Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass free trial can take part in the multiplayer beta, which runs for over a week.
In a post online Nintendo explained: “A real-time multiplayer beta test available for subscribers to the Mario Kart Tour Gold Pass will be held during the following period. “From approximately 11pm PT on December 18 2019 to 9.59pm PT on December 26 2019. “Players in their Gold Pass free trial period are eligible to participate.”
The post goes onto say: “This is a beta test for the multiplayer mode. “Please be aware that the following issues may occur depending on the specifications of your device, as well as the condition of your network connection and the connections of the players you’re matched with.” Nintendo added: “Certain multiplayer specifications will change between its beta test and its full release.
