What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're looking to build a community of VR arcade racers so we want to get Drive out there even though it is not quite finished yet. We'd like to get feedback from the community to see what is working, what isn't and where the game could evolve over the coming months and years.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate an early access period of 4-5 months. During this period we'll be releasing additional content as well as providing any bug fix updates. Content updates will be scheduled around a 2-3 week release schedule but for any major bugs we'll push updates as quickly as possible.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are planning to add an Online Multiplayer to the full version of Drive. We are also planning to release more content in terms of tracks and vehicles.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version provides the full VR racing experience just without the multiplayer feature and a limited set of cars and vehicles.

Feature wise the game is complete with a range of tracks, race modes, championships, vehicle customisation, damage, tires and fuel. Over time we envisage updates to these feature as we get feedback from the community.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are planning to increase the price as planned new features and content is released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're keen to share what we are doing and give the community some insight to the development of the game as well as have open lines of communication where the community can get in touch whenever they want.

We run live streams, a discord server and the usual range of social media channels. We love to interact with community members as much as possible and encourage everyone to get in touch via which ever channel works best for them.”

About This Game



Sometimes racing sims are just too…sim. Sometimes you just want to jump in and get racing without all the setup and fuss.

Drive is more than just your average arcade racing game. Through VR it puts you in the car and provides a real sense of being out on the track feeling every bump and crash across a range of exciting arcade racing styles.

The VR Arcade Racing Experience


Traditional racing games let you race at 300kph, Drive lets you experience it. From the moment you jump in the car, looking around at the detailed interiors waiting for the start, you feel as though you’re out there on the track. When the light goes green your opponents will floor it and if you don’t push hard, they’ll leave you behind.

In the middle of the pack with cars inches from your doors jostling for position you’ll feel every bump and turn. They want to win as much as you do so they’ll tap and nudge you for position and not give an inch or an undeserved position.

In VR the speed and realism of the cars makes the experience intense so the question is can you hold your nerve til the end? A win in VR is so much sweeter.

Also plays in non-VR Mode

No headset? No problem. Drive will detect if you haven’t got a headset and adjust accordingly to play in 2D screen mode. At any stage you can also disable VR.

The AI are Bastards

This is an actual quote from a review of Drive. The AI opponents in Drive race just like your friends would. They are not polite or cautious, they’re out there to win and if that means a little bumping here and there then so be it. Arcade racing rules apply so don’t hesitate to stand your ground.

Standard Race Mode

Race against up to 19 AI opponents across the full range of tracks driving any of the cars. These races are more traditional racing with configurable practice, qualifying and racing sessions as well as the use of pits as needed. Want to jump in and race? The quick race mode lets you get into the game and start racing in seconds.

Arcade Challenge Mode Racing

The standard VR racing experience in Drive is great fun but the challenge modes take it to a whole new level. Standard racing features apply with a bit extra to add to that arcade racing experience. Choose from Jumps, Checkpoints and a bunch of other racing challenges. The feeling in VR as your car soars through the air 10m above the ground as it passes three opponents is so satisfying.

Championships

In for the long haul? Drive features a range of championships designed to let you take your time and savour the joy of a racing season. Customise the length and difficulty or races within a championship then at your leisure race each track keeping an eye on the championship points as you go. A good qualifying time here really helps.

Online Multiplayer

Drive is still in early access, but we are developing the multiplayer functionality right now. Keep an eye on this page or our community page for more information on release updates for multiplayer.

Cars & Tracks

Drive currently features 4 racing cars, but this number is growing with the regular free update releases. Cars range from fast modern sports cars to karts and older classic cars. The cars all feature detailed interiors and selectable paintjobs to make sure when in VR you feel like you are in the car.

There are currently 13 tracks available, these range from city street circuits to longer country tracks and short circular loops and offer a range of driving styles.

Damage, fuel, tyres and pits

Ever been out on the track, made a little mistake and slam your half million-dollar custom race car into a wall needing tens of thousands in repairs? Neither have we but that would really suck. Drive is great as with VR you get a great racing experience, but it doesn’t matter how much you mess up your car, it won’t cost you a cent.

Drive features vehicle damage, fuel usage and tyre wear bridging the gap between traditional arcade racers and full-blown racing sims. Plan your pitstops carefully though as they can cost you positions if not planned correctly.

Global Leader Boards

Think you’re the best of the best of the best of the best, or just the best of the best of the best. Either way you’re probably pretty good so make sure everyone knows it with your fastest lap times for each track posted to the Steam Global leader boards.
