DoubleDutch Games and tinyBuild released SpeedRunners on Xbox One today, and put out an action packed launch trailer to go alongside it. While SpeedRunners on Xbox One costs $9.99, the title is part of Xbox’s Games with Gold Program this month, meaning players with an Xbox Live Gold account can get the game for free through June 30.

Outside of the main game, there are also four DLC packs available for Xbox One players to purchase for $2.99 each: Trial Pack, Mr. Quick’s Speedy Bunch, FortKnight’s Fast Faction, and Salem’s Sprint Squad. These can be purchased alongside the base game in a Deluxe Edition for $16.99.

For those who don’t know, SpeedRunners is a four-player competitive platformer that entered Early Access back in late 2013. It became extremely popular with YouTubers and streamers, and kickstarted the tinyBuild publishing brand; the game officially launched on PC April 19, 2016. Since its initial release on Early Access, SpeedRunners has sold over 1.5 million copies.

Due to its popularity on PC, the developers have also decided to hold a free weekend for SpeedRunners and discounted the game by 34% to celebrate. You can watch the launch trailer below. SpeedRunners is currently available on PC and Xbox One.
