I’m no Kaz Hiraii, but guess what guys. It’s Ridddddge Raaaccceeeeerrrr! If you are a long time fan of the series or just like driving games in general, Ridge Racer’s newest installment, Ridge Racer Driftopia, starts its closed beta today. That being said, if you want to be amongst the first people to experience the game and more importantly provide feedback to improve things, head on over to http://www.ridgeracerdriftopia.com and register to receive your closed beta key to play on Steam.
Ridge Racer Driftopia is the first ever free-2-play game for the franchise. Developed by Finland’s Bugbear Entertainment (studio behind Ridge Racer Unbounded), players can challenge each other by shaving those precious seconds off of their times, move up global rankings, level up cars, and ear booster cards to get a “racing edge over the competition”. Expect Ridge Racer Driftopia on both the PS3 and PC later in 2013.
