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.”

Drive – Update 1 Patch Notes

This update addresses issues around graphics and optimisation and introduces some new game play features.

We want to ensure that the game runs smoothly and has the best possible visual quality so we've taken steps to reduce the shimmering effect some players were experiencing particularly in VR and to optimise materials and textures.

We've also introduced the external 3rd person camera mode which works in both VR and screen mode. You can switch camera modes from the Options menu, by pressing C, the Back button or whichever button is assigned for your input device.

A few quality of life features have also been added including the ability to readjust your seat height while in car.

Graphics & Optimisation
• Texture and material optimisations to improve frame rate and level load times as well as reducing "shimmer effect" and overall visual quality
• Implemented Temporal Anti aliasing for VR to replace existing AA
• Improved initial data retrieval
• Rebalanced driver assists for better car control when driver assists are turned off.

New Features
• Added third person camera mode
• Added ability to adjustment player seating height in car
• Enabled full race mode for single race

About This Game


Experience the thrill of the race!


Sometimes racing sims are a little too…sim. Drive combines sim and arcade racing for beautiful and thrilling VR racing experiences.

Put your foot to the floor and hang on as you battle challenging opponents across a range of tracks and racing types in search of glorious victory. Drive gives you realistic yet fun racing experiences without compromise. Built for VR it lets you feel the thrill of racing with beautiful car interiors and track environments and a deep feel of immersion.

Can you be the next VR Racing Champion?


2D driving games let you race at 300kph, Drive lets you experience it. From the moment you jump in the car, looking around the interior waiting for the start, you feel as though you’re out there on the track. When the light goes green, you’re off! The other cars roar to life 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 places you feel every bump and turn. As much as you want the win so do your opponents. They will 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 to maintain position and push ahead to take the race? A win in VR is so much sweeter.

This early access release gives you all the main racing features of the game. The only feature not included at this stage is the online multiplayer. During the early access period the game will be regularly updated with free content (additional cars and tracks) and feature enhancements and bug fixes as required. We’re keen for your input and feedback so may include feature updates or additions based on community input.

The full release of the game will include online multiplayer racing and a full array of cars and tracks. Please visit our discord server or our live streams to get involved and provide feedback.



Regular updates (approximately every two weeks during early access) will provide free content updates with new cars and tracks. As this is an early access release updates will also include any relevant community feedback and bug fixes.

Once the full game is released we will continue to provide free updates with new content released regularly. We welcome community input so if you have a feature you’d like to see in the game please let us know via our live stream or discord server.

You can keep up to date with updates and the release schedule on the Drive website.



We are building DRIVE for players who love VR and who love the racing experience. We want you to be involved in the continuing development of the game the coming months and years. Let us know what you think of the game to date and what you’d like to see included in future versions.

We regularly live stream the latest builds where we show off and talk about new features and chat with the community about the game answering any questions. Join us in our live streams and you can join our Discord server for further discussions.
