Peak Angle Team recently released Peak Angle: Drift Online onto Steam. The buy-to-play MMO racing game also recently received a free playable demo to go along with launching at $11.99.
The game is focused on the art of competitive drifting. Despite the fact that tuner cars and drift culture is extremely popular, we don’t really get games focusing on that aspect of professional motorsports all that much. Games like Need For Speed: Underground had entire series of drift races for players to complete, and the drift challenges pop up every once in a while in various racing games, but it seems like only modders making scripts for GTA IV and GTA V seem to truly appreciate drift culture.
Well, Peak Angle team is a group of developers who also appreciate drift culture, and they decided to base an entire game around the competitive sport of race drifting.
Much like Need For Speed: Underground, there will be different types of drift challenges and competitions to partake in, as well as the ability to both tune and visually customize the appearance of your ride. You can get a glimpse of what the game looks like with the video trailer below.
Be warned that the game does feature in-app purchases. So you will need to earn credits, unlock upgrades and either win races or pay money to make your ride look sexier than Margot Robbie in short shorts.
The customization and upgrading features reminds me a little bit of Invictus Games’ Project Torque. Hopefully it doesn’t suffer the same fate as that game.
If you want to give Peak Angle: Drift Online a little bit of play time you can do so by downloading the free demo right now from over on the Steam store page. It’s receiving some positive feedback from the gaming community, so far. So it might be worth keeping an eye on.
