KartRider: Drift Races into First Place with an Exciting New Season

November 30, 2023 – KartRider: Drift is the ultimate free to play, online cross-platform kart racer, and Nexon and Nitro Studios are thrilled to announce the launch of Season 5, where players can explore all new tracks and events as K-pop stars BLACKPINK hit the asphalt with chic skins, adorable emotes and fierce karts.

Global superstars JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ, and LISA from BLACKPINK are ready to drift in style, bringing two new skins, emotes and decals for each member, as well as a new kart, the Pink Venom Supercar. In addition, players can earn a 4-set BLACKPINK Balloon Pack just by logging in during Season 5.

A new season means new tracks, and Season 5 adds eight on launch. Two extra tracks have been added to the Graveyard and Factory themes, as well as the new Moonhill area, a vast and vibrant metropolis with sprawling skylines, winding tunnels and busy streets. Players can race by the neon glow of the city lights as four tracks drift into the Moonhill area today.

The eight new tracks releasing in Season 5 are:

  • Moonhill: Streetcar Run
  • Moonhill: Lawless Tunnel
  • Factory: Trapworks
