The F2P kart racer KartRider: Drift is now available for free, Season 1 starts

The South Koreans Nexon remind us that from today it is available for free on Xbox KartRider: Drift, a free-to-play kart game that has already been a great success on PC and mobile, especially in Asian territories.

The game comes alongside the launch of Season 1, titled "New World." Here are the details and the launch trailer.

As part of the launch of Season 1, Nexon is pleased to announce two special collaborations in the game: 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 – the 718 Boxster Cabriolet, 911 Turbo S Cabriolet and Macan GTS – will be available as karts during Season 1. Players who log in during Season 1 can claim the 718 Boxster immediately, while the Macan GTS kart can be claimed by reaching level 30 of the race pass. Players will also be able to meet two characters from Nexon's iconic MapleStory franchise shortly after Season 1 begins.

Season 1 is packed with new and exciting updates and features, such as eight new tracks, Item Grand Prix and Speed Grand Prix modes, new karts and cosmetic items (characters, emotes, boosters and license plates), as well as an all-new Season Race Pass with normal (free) and premium (paid with K-Coin) levels.

Drivers interested in gaining a competitive edge and squeezing maximum performance out of their karts will find plenty to cheer about in the new upgrade system coming with the Season 1 update. Players on all platforms can not only customize the look of their karts, but can also refine their karts to increase their rank from common, fine and rare, resulting in improved stats and handling.

Finally, Season 1 "New World" offers generous new rewards for access and daily events to keep players playing.
