Media Impressions After Their Joyrides:


Inertial Drift is an espresso shot full of arcade-y goodness. Its approach to drifting isn’t just intuitive, but it encapsulates that Initial D fantasy wonderfully.


Taking a healthy dose of inspiration from Ridge Racer Type 4, Inertial Drift is a unique arcade racer with an exquisite core mechanic.


Inertial Drift is a high speed, white knuckle ride, and a sweet gift for arcade racing fans.

Check out the ‘Inertial Drift’ Update trailer: 

Forget Everything You Know About Drifting…

Set in a 90’s retro-future, Inertial Drift is an arcade racer with a unique handling model and unbelievably satisfying twin-stick drift mechanics. It offers a whole new level of accessibility and challenge to the arcade racing genre – for a driving experience genuinely unlike anything you’ve played before.

The right-hand stick of the gamepad solely controls your car’s drifting, allowing for extremely satisfying and precise manoeuvres. Intuitive for new players – uniquely challenging for pros!

New Leaderboards To Challenge Your Friends

Brand new changes are coming to Inertial Drift’s most competitive and defining feature! Loved by drifting fans, we are proud to introduce a brand new leaderboard system, where you can now measure your times based on the car you used. The class-based system will still remain, allowing you to see how you stack up against the best Inertial Drift drivers in the world!

This new system will be rolled out on all platforms including the Epic Games Store. 

New Car OUT NOW! More To Come As Free Updates!

Over the next four months, we will be releasing upgraded versions of pre-existing cars for you to take for a spin. Once a month, you can download the latest game update to receive these cars for free. With these four new cars, master their controls and try to get to the top of their respective leaderboards! First up is the Roton 7D – now Class B with updated handling!

We’re Just Getting Started

This is just the beginning! Over the coming months, we’ll be revealing more exciting updates to the Inertial Drift Universe, including new cars!
