MixMob launches Closed Beta with “The Gathering” campaign and kicks off a series of drops in its most advanced game release yet

8 min readApr 25, 2023


Closed Beta unlocks Free-Play Mode, Pixels, a new Tek deck, and competitive game upgrades. The MixBots are coming!

Welcome to “The Gathering,” the place where the Subdomain’s most promising racers, climbers, collectors, socializers, remixers, and gamblers come together to test the latest Arena features before they open to the masses. MixMob: Racer 1 is officially in beta! “The Gathering” kicks off a series of drops, starting with a fresh new website on May 16th, that will take place over the next 3 months, and culminate in a massive event that’s unlike anything that’s been done before.

This is a time to celebrate what we’ve built and look to the future by testing out the latest Arena tech in our most seamless and advanced release yet. Build your crew and climb the leaderboards in our Qualifier Tournaments as our culture levels up to a new tier of competition — and we get ready for the arrival of the MixBots!

Key Features of MixMob: Racer 1 Closed Beta

The latest version of MixMob: Racer 1 introduces a number of new components that make the game more accessible and exciting. Here are the key features players have to look forward to:

Free-Play Mode

By popular demand from our community, we have removed transactions to make PVE mode free to play! Invite your friends with your unique referral link. Once they’re ready to level up from Free Play to PVP, you will receive 300 SUD$ and 10 MixPoints.

New Tek Deck

Closed Beta unleashes the Tek Faction cards in a new pre-built deck. Inside the Tek Deck, players will be excited to see some fan favorites remixed in with exciting new mechanics intermixed. Players can look forward to using the Tek Deck in-game in May.

Game Upgrades

In addition to a new deck, the latest release unlocks new upgrades that make races tighter and less predictable. For a competitive strategy, you must take these new features into account:

  • Slipstream — This rubber-banding feature prevents snowballing in-game. The player who is further back will gain speed as they try to catch up to the leader.
  • Obstacles — If you’re in the lead, watch out! There are glitches in the environment. Be sure to stay on your toes and change lanes to avoid slamming into digital defecation which will slow you down.
  • Collision — Ram into your opponent to deal 5 damage. Change lanes or speed boost to slam into your opponent and do some mutually assured destruction.
  • Core Boosters — Fly dangerously by pressing the “W” key! You’ll activate your bot’s Core Booster which provides a speed boost at the expense of your Health. No risk, no reward.

Improved Arena Cost Balancing

After receiving feedback that our tournament structure made it too difficult to win back the Arena entry, we have rebalanced our Arena entry fee and rewards journey as follows.

Player IDs

Your identity in the game universe just got easier to flex with our new Player IDs! Pick an alias from the engine of pre-generated nicknames to build your reputation, and protect your identity from the unwanted attention of HELIX-9.

Once you’ve picked an alias, you won’t be able to change it until we’ve integrated that functionality in a future version of the game. Choose wisely!

Qualifier Tournaments & Pixels

Every Saturday through Closed Beta starting May 6th, we will hold a Qualifier Tournament. At the end of the 8 weeks, the overall top 25 will be entered into The Gathering Season 0 Championship Tournament. The winner of the Championship will receive a mysterious Glitch Pixel loot box.

Qualifier tournaments will be leaderboard-style, therefore the goal is to accumulate as many wins as possible in the timed window. Windows will take place every Saturday and Sunday from May 6th to June 25th, from 7AM PT to 10AM PT.

Qualifier tournaments will be open to everyone, however, only Mask holders will be eligible for certain exclusive prizes, including 8 mysterious Glitch Pixels. Each week, the winner of the Qualifier Tourney will receive a Glitch Pixel. Each Glitch Pixel contains a loot box of in-game assets, tokens, achievements, and Digital Collectibles from other games and projects that can be redeemed at the end of the season.
