Nexon has announced that the first season of KartRider: Drift is now live! Players on both PC and console (PlayStation/Xbox) can now race alongside each other!
Console racers rejoice! Drift-fueled kart racing action comes to even more platforms today with the debut of KartRider: Drift’s Season 1 – “New World.” Nexon’s KartRider: Drift is now available to download and play for free on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, alongside PC (Steam, Nexon Launcher) and mobile (Android, iOS) racers across the globe.
As part of the Season 1 launch, Nexon is pleased to announce two special in-game collaborations: KartRider: Drift x Porsche and KartRider: Drift x MapleStory, which offer players an exclusive racing experience for a limited time. Porsche’s iconic sports cars – 718 Boxster convertible, 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, and Macan GTS – will be available as karts during Season 1. Racers who log-in during Season 1 can immediately claim the 718 Boxster, and the Macan GTS kart can be claimed by achieving level 30 on the racing pass. Players will also soon be able to meet two characters from Nexon’s iconic MapleStory franchise shortly after Season 1 begins.
Season 1 is packed with exciting new updates and features, like eight new race tracks, Item Grand Prix and Speed Grand Prix modes, new karts and cosmetic items (characters, emotes, boosters, and license plates), plus a brand new season racing pass with normal and premium tiers.
Racers interested in gaining a competitive edge and squeezing the most performance out of their karts will find plenty to cheer about in the new Upgrade system arriving with the Season 1 update. Players on all platforms can not only customize the look of their karts but can also now fine-tune their karts to increase their grade from common, fine, to rare, resulting in improved stats and better handling.
Lastly, Season 1 “New World” brings generous new log-in rewards and daily event rewards to keep racers coming back for more.
