KartRider: Drift is revving up for a closed beta starting today, and you'll have a full week to tool around in Nexon's cute racing title. The beta will run from 4 p.m. Pacific today until 5 a.m. Pacific on December 15 and be available to players on PC via Steam and the Nexon launcher, as well as on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

A Q&A was held last week, which filled players in on many of the details that would be present in this beta. These include: 17 new tracks (33 total), seven characters, 22 karts, and 55 kart customization options; a friend system; skill-based matchmaking; an improved tutorial, and more. A "racing pass" has also been implemented for the beta, with the intent that players should be able to complete it in about two days.

First announced for Western audiences over two years ago, KartRider: Drift is on target for a 2022 release.
