The Glide Beasts Track Pack is up on the European PlayStation Store for £2.49. Here’s an overview of each map:
Marvel at mighty, majestic beasts as you zoom through three legendary landscapes. Navigate treacherous glaciers roamed by the Yeti, swoop across the Kraken’s cove and soar into the skies where the Dragon dwells! Just don’t get too close. You’ve been warned!
There’s also a Glide Track Pack Season Pass for £7.99 that includes access “to the first three Track Packs for the Glide Mini Game and the Mini Game Heroes Skin Pack the very moment they appear over the horizon.” All content in this Season Pass will be available by April 2018.
