Given the overwhelming popularity of the Mario Kart series, we suppose it is surprising there aren’t more of them – especially in the free-to-play space. Enter KartRider: Drift, a new title from Nexon with crossplay and cross-progression, on its way to the PS4. A beta’s coming in December, with over 30 different tracks available from the off.
There’s a touch of ModNation Racers to this one: you can customise your character and even make unique wraps for your vehicles. But while it sounds decent on paper, it just doesn’t have the kind of attractive and inviting art style that the best releases in the genre have, does it? At least it’s free-to-play, so you lose nothing for giving it a spin!
