New Free-To-Play Ridge Racer Driftopia Enters Closed Beta Today

/ 3 years ago


I’m a big fan of the Ridge Racer franchise, or at least I used to be. I still regard the PlayStation 1 editions of the series to be the best around and there was a magic that has rarely been captured since. Yet nostalgia will get the better of me again because I really can’t wait to play this new title and given that it will be free makes it all the more likely that I will.

Ridge Racer Driftopia is the first ever free-2-play game based on the legendary franchise, and puts the series’ signature drifting and arcade handling right at the heart of the experience. Developed by Finland’s Bugbear Entertainment, the studio behind 2012 title Ridge Racer Unbounded, Ridge Racer Driftopia distils the experience to the essential elements of driving, drifting and destruction, with upgraded visuals that make every dust mote and gleaming fender shimmer with life. Players will be challenged to shave seconds off each other’s times as they tear up the streets and punch holes in solid concrete to reveal vital shortcuts. Beat other players’ times to climb the global rankings, level up cars and earn booster cards to get that racing edge over the competition.
