You may be well-versed in the realm of twin-stick shooters, but what about twin-stick drifting? Well, Inertial Drift is a new 1-on-1 racing game which will put the onus on you mastering the twin-stick drifting if you wish to become the Drift King!
It’s an intense arcade racer, with a ridiculously high level of precision when it comes down to the drifting aspect; the twin-stick element provides twice the control, leading to drifts that are only a hair’s breadth away from the crash barrier. Due to the races being scaled down to duels, there’s excitement in every encounter against the AI or real players – both online and offline. While bragging rights are always on the table, the chance to see your name on the leaderboards should spur you to push the cars to their limits.
On the subject of cars, they’re all electric and there are 16 different driving styles to choose from in Inertial Drift. Just pick your favourite technique and master it, or try all of them, on the route to becoming the ultimate racer across a total of 20 tracks. Given that the tracks are flooded by the lights of pink Japanese sunset and vibrant neon-cities, you’re set to have some thrilling chases.
If the precise racing of Inertial Drift sounds like something you want to get involved in, it’s available right now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. For us Xbox folks though, the Xbox Store is the place to visit, where it’s priced at £16.99.
