Franchise steps into the pool of Free-to-Play model
Namco Bandai have announced Ridger Racer Driftopia for PlayStation 3 and PC targeted for release later this year. Ridge Racer Driftopia is the very first game in the series that will be going free-to-play.
The title is being developed by Bugbear Entertainment – the studio which originally worked on Ridge Racer Unbounded which came out in March 2012 for multiple platforms.
Namco hasn’t spilled the beans yet on the game, however, the game promises to “put the series’ irresistible signature drifting right at the heart of the experience”, and will contain “in-game transactions”.
Check out the announcement trailer:
It will be interesting to see whether this game comes out on the PlayStation 4 as traditionally there has always been a new Ridge Racer game to accompany a new PlayStation at launch.
