In celebration of 15 years of the franchise being in business, Kartrider: Drift has been announced at X019, as it gets ready to provide cross platforming kart racing between Xbox One and PC players.
The latest iteration of the hugely successful kart racer which already boasts more than 380 million PC players, KartRider: Drift has been confirmed today at X019, promising to provide more drift challenges, and deeper customisation than ever before – and the best thing about it is the deliverance of Xbox One to PC cross platform play.
Having first launched in 2004, the next iteration in the KartRider franchise will be Drift, a cross platform free-to-play game that delivers intuitive gameplay for all skill levels. Offering wide customization features across karts and character design, KartRider: Drift encourages racers to express their unique personality as they cross the line.
And starting today, racers can sign up for the Closed Beta to test out the game’s cross-platform capabilities via Xbox One, including Xbox One X, Steam and Nexon Launcher.
KartRider: Drift offers three distinct modes to get involved in, including Time Attack an easy-to-learn Item Mode, and a competitive Speed Mode, which offers hard-to-master drifting techniques for players looking for a greater challenge. Featuring stunning Unreal Engine 4 graphics, this is a game that has been optimised from the ground up to deliver a stellar online experience, with a breadth of content lined up, including constantly evolving seasonal updates.
