Preseason Pre-Download KartRider: Drift

[Update 11:00 PM PST Jan 9] The issue with the Steam version's pre-download has been resolved. You may now pre-download KartRider: Drift on Steam! We apologize for any inconvenience this downtime may have caused.

[Update 7:30 PM PST Jan 9] Pre-download on Steam is currently unavailable. We are working to resolve this issue, and will let you know as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience.

Racers on Steam, Nexon Launcher, Apple iOS, and Android will be able to start downloading KartRider: Drift at 2:00 AM UTC on Tuesday, January 10 so you are ready to race once Preseason begins!


Note: Racers who joined us for the Global Racing Test on iOS and Android should remove the Global Racing Test client from their devices before installing the client for Preseason in order to ensure proper gameplay.

Note: KartRider: Drift will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year, but will be unavailable for the Preseason period. Any progress gained during Preseason will be carried into Season 1, including Racers that go on to play on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
