Mario-Kart like Kartrider: Drift

No, that's not a mistake, you've read that right. Nexon's upcoming Mario-Kart like racing game Kartrider: Drift is about to have another round of closed beta testing. However, everyone can join in the fun as long as they sign up for free and live in one of the regions where the game is serviced. Don't worry, the list is huge and includes countries from North and South America, Europe, Africa, and more. The beta runs for a week, starting on June 3 and closing on June 10, 2020.

Players who have participated in the December 2019 closed beta can join this new test without the need for a new key. If you're wondering if you're able to choose your favorite platform, do not worry, as Nexon will hand you keys for the two available (three different ways of playing): Steam, Nexon Launcher or Xbox One. However, some countries may not have access to the PC version, while others may not be able to play on Microsoft's console.

The upcoming beta brings several improvements and includes new content such as fourth character Diz, new tracks, and new karts.

Comparing Kartrider: Drift to Mario Kart may seem like a very natural thing to do, but Nexon's series has been around for a long time. The first game was released in June 2004 as Crazyracing KartRider, and May 2020 saw the global release of KartRider Rush+, another mobile game from the series.
