Mantis Burn Racing PS4 Update 1.02 Out Now, Brings Massive Online Improvements and General Fixes

There’s a new update out today for VooFoo Studios’ Mantis Burn Racing on PS4. The latest update, version 1.02, brings a whole host of fixes and improvements to the game.

In a press release received by Pure PlayStation, VooFoo Studios’ Mark Williams, Technology Director, stated the following:

“We’re committed to supporting Mantis Burn Racing long-term and we want to encourage and support the multiplayer community, so we’re really pleased that today’s update brings some notable improvements to the online experience for our players.”

Long-term support? We’ll take that. We actually reviewed Mantis Burn Racing quite favourably when it released not too long ago, so go and give our review a read if you’re still unsure about the game.

Patch 1.02 is available now and will run you around 316MB of hard drive space. Not too big then.
