Ridge Racer Driftopia Set For PS3 And PC, Closed Beta Starts

Riiiiidge Raaaacer!

A new installment in the esteemed racing franchise is heading your way later this year. It's called Ridge Racer Driftopia and if you want to test it out, go ahead and sign up for the Closed Beta. The beta has already started on Steam; we're not sure when or if it will be available for PlayStation 3 players. The game, however, will be released as a free-to-play title for both the PS3 and PC.

This is the first time the long-running series has gone free-to-play. In development at Bugbear Entertainment (Ridge Racer Unbounded), the game takes drifting to a whole new level. Plus, there will be all sorts of crazy destruction, along with updated visuals "that make every spinning wheel or gleaming fender shimmer with life." Battle your friends to nab the fastest lap times; find those valuable shortcuts, shave seconds off that time with expert handling, and rise up the leaderboard!

Unbounded was lotsa fun; here's hoping Driftopia will be even better.

I'll just play it whenever it shows up as a f2p game. I'm in no rush.

I really don't see why Namco has removed the arcade visuals to Ridge Racer. It now looks like a generic street racing game. I loved the visuals on Ridge Racer Revolution and Type 4. Still as it is free may aswell try it :/

Ahh Type 4..loved that game.
Think it's due a replay just to hear 'You got a new car read to roll..'

Back on track..I too miss the pure arcade feel of Ridge Racer games. Leave the realistic street racing to NFS.
