KartRider: Drift will be available cross-platform and will officially launch in 2020

KartRider: Drift, Nexon's free to play kart racing game, entered closed beta testing today which runs until December 8th. Anyone who was accepted into the closed beta can begin playing immoderately on Steam, Nexon Launcher, and XBox One. The game will be available cross-platform and will officially launch in 2020. Three specific game modes will be made available during the Closed Beta test period including Speed Mode, Item Mode and Time Attack Mode.

The first, Item Race, is a classic Mario Kart like game mode. The race can be played either in 4v4 Teams, Duos, which unsurprisingly features four teams of two, or Solo, which is every man for himself. As you tear around the track, various containers can be opened to give your Kart a power up, either in offensive or defensive form. Those attacking opportunities feature the usual suspects, with missiles and banana skins, water bombs and obstacles placed on the track, while defensive options include shields that block incoming attacks and boosts to your speed. There is no better feeling in KartRider: Drift than drifting round the last corner of the race, triggering a boost as you barely straighten up and blasting past the other racers.

The second race type was that of Speed Race, which features no power ups and does exactly what it says on the tin. The winner here will be the best driver, and knowledge of your kart and the track is vital. The racing is so close that it only takes one mistimed slide, one misjudged corner or a collision with a wall to go from first to last place in an instant.

And then last, but not least, the third race is Time Attack, which charges you with setting a pace time around of any of the tracks, then racing your ghost and hopefully beating it. This mode is perfect for trying out the different karts and learning the best racing lines through all the circuits, and trying to beat yourself is surprisingly engaging.

KartRider: Drift Beta makes it’s valiant return after 15 years away from the gaming world. If the beta is anything to go off, then this famous Korean-based title will keep you and your friends gaming for hours on end!
