Here’s you chance to get some early hands on time with one of the biggest multiplayer games coming in 2020.
KartRider: Drift is the latest entry in the mega popular racing franchise, bringing the Korean sensation west and – for the first time – onto consoles. There’s an upcoming closed beta for Xbox One and PC and we’ve partnered with Nexon to give away 1,000 codes, granting you access to the upcoming test.

You will receive three codes (one each for Xbox One, Steam, and the Nexon Launcher). These codes will be sent via email in waves so please check your inbox.
Nexon recently confirmed some changes coming in the latest beta version of Drift:
During the Closed Beta period, players will be introduced to a new character — Diz, as well as new skins for existing characters, plus additional karts and tracks. The Closed Beta will also showcase new functions such as Racing Pass and a new Racing School single-player mode, where new and experienced players can improve their racing skills.
Customization will be a huge part of this Closed Beta with the preview of the new wraps, which allows racers to paint their karts and create unique designs for maximum personalization. Participants will also have access to kart upgrades including choice of license plate and can decorate their karts with a lineup of new accessory balloons and character emotes.
Players will also see a revamped User Interface with a new HUD and contextual rear view mirror. The matchmaking experience has also been improved as players will be queued based on their performance in the tutorial. Driving physics of the game have also been improved since the first Closed Beta for a better racing experience.
To reward players who log in during the Closed Beta, special login rewards including a Turbo Tortoise Kart, Bunny Buggy Kart, Simian Scrapper Kart, and Deuce Coupe Kart will be unlocked. All Beta participants will also receive a White Cloud Balloon item at official launch.
