How does the Race Pack work?
The following locations are available for racing (London Westminster, The City of London and Edinburgh). At each of these locations there are two routes starting at the same point and finishing at the same treasure. They are of equal distance so it is possible to team up and race, some of them overlap so you may bump into each other!
I'm confused on how many to buy for a Race Pack...
If you purchase for two people you will have 1 v 1, if you purchase for 3 you will have 1 v 2, if you purchase for 4 you will have 2 v 2 etc..
