Ridge Racer Driftopia beta applications open


By on August 10, 2013 at 12:50 pm

New free-to-play PC racer Ridge Racer Driftopia is now in closed beta, and taking applications for instant entry. If you’re interested in checking out Namco Bandai’s latest effort, just sign on the dotted line via its website.

I haven’t tried it myself, but PCGamer says getting in is a cinch.

Driftopis is Ridge Racer’s second PC outing in recent years, after the 2012 multi-platform effort Ridge Racer Unbounded, to which it is a sequel. For the franchise to turn up yet again is unusual; we normally only see it for console launches. Driftopia is coming to console platforms, too, but nobody seems to know when, or with what business model, so feel free to smile smugly as you get in on the action this very day for absolutely no dollars.
