Nexon has officially announced the open beta of KartRider: Drift, the highly anticipated mobile kart racing game. The racing game features cross-platform/cross-play and will begin its open beta on August 31 at 6 p.m. PDT.
In KartRider: Drift, players can expect to join the “Global Racing Test” from August 31 to September 6 with full cross-platform and cross-play support in Korea, Japan, North America, Latin America and in Europe. The “Global Racing Test” will include a new AI mode matchmaking system where players can enjoy fast-paced matchmaking to practice, as well as a kart upgrade system that will give racers the ability to tinker with the performance of their karts.
Meanwhile, the licensing system allows players to learn driving skills to see if they have what it takes to survive the new class, L3, which is the highest difficulty level. Avid runners can participate whether playing on PC or console (PS4, Xbox One). For mobile users, only 10,000 iOS runners can participate on a first-come, first-served basis. Android users have no limits.
