KartRider: Drift Begins Worldwide Closed Beta Test

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.

  • Speed Mode is a highly competitive mode within the game that prepares players for the art and skill of drifting.
  • Item Mode is perfect for new players looking to familiarize themselves with the controls as they use various items in order to get ahead of opponents within the race, including objects such as mines, clouds, UFOs and more.
  • Time Attack Mode is for players looking to improve their time and skills as they race against their own shadow to beat their previous record.

Kart Rider originally launched back in 2004 and has attracted over 380 million players in Asia and is finally launching globally in English. It's worth mentioning though that this is the game's second worldwide debut, as it was available in English for a short time back in 2007.
