KartRider: Drift-a free kart racer-will be available on PS4 and PS5 in 2022

If you are a big fan of kart racing games, such as Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing or the curiously revisited Chocobo GP (coming soon), then you might like Karting rider: drift.

“While maintaining nostalgia, this new game introduces next-generation graphics using Unreal Engine 4 as well as an improved game system and comprehensive cross-play and cross-process support,” an article on PlayStation Blog. https://youtu.be/4Ka1EIOif74

In the internal test, there are two game modes to choose from: item mode and speed mode.

In the item mode, you can collect items while racing on the track and use the items you collect for your benefit (just like your standard kart racing game). In speed mode, you need to have skills in drifting and use improvement-obviously, this is for players who “enjoy fast-paced and competitive racing”.

You can also customize your kart, driver and racing effects.

If you like the look of the game, you will be happy to know that the title will have a beta version December 8, Will provide more than 30 different tracks from the beginning. Nexon is petting us, right?


“In the upcoming closed beta, you will be able to play online games on PlayStation 4 and compete with racers around the world in real time,” the blog continued. It is not mentioned explicitly in the article, but you can also play this Beta version on PS5 through backward compatibility.

“Challenge your friends, no matter what platform they play on, and there are no paywalls or pay-to-win racing elements, no obstacles,” a press release asserted.

To register for this year’s closed beta before the game’s release in 2022, you need to visit the official KartRdier: Drift site.

If you want to know more about what was shown last night, you can check the King of Fighters 15 public beta announcement, the death gate PlayStation announced, the new Bugsnax update, the leaked November PS Plus lineup or the secret trailer Death Poem: Let It Die. We also have a new understanding of the strange and wonderful little devil inside.
