Signups have started for Ridge Racer: Driftopia. This is a free-to-play version of the game. It will release for PC and PS3 somewhere this year.
Driftopia continues a similar style to where the 2012 title Ridge Race Unbounded went. Instead of the arcade races of yore, this driving game is more akin to the old Burnout series, where blurred sceneries and tons of destruction reign supreme. Shortcuts are taken by crashing through buildings and that sort of stuff.
Those that are granted to the Beta will receive a Steam key. Despite being released on PS3, no details for tests are given there.
