Absolute Drift: Zen Edition has been released on PC and PS4, a unique driving game with a minimalist art style reminiscent of Mirrors Edge where the aim is to become a master drifter. In other words, you’ll be doing copious amounts of sideways driving.
Developed in collaboration with Flippfly, the makers of Race the Sun, Absolute Drift: Zen Edition launches a year after the original PC version of Absolute Drift with lots of new content, including new challenges, night-time tracks, replays and ghost cars.
Absolute Drift: Zen Edition lets you slide around a huge open world as you take on challenging missions and over 30 drifting events. Six customiseable cars are included based on models renowned in the drifting scene. No surprise to see there’s a car based on the Toyota Sprinter Trueno from Initial D, then.
Here’s a complete breakdown of the new features in Absolute Drift: Zen Edition:
- New “event challenges” that will extend the gameplay in the game’s 34 tracks by challenging players to complete increasingly difficult tasks.
- 5 all new “Midnight Events.” These night-themed tracks are designed to challenge even the most experienced players.
- Replays and ghost cars.
- New tutorial and in-game guide to help new players ease into the game’s features and controls.
- New input system for better controller compatibility.
Absolute Drift: Zen Edition is now available on the PSN store for £9.49 or as a free upgrade to owners of the original PC version which is available on Steam for £8.99. Absolute Drift: Zen Edition was also supposed to be released on the American PSN store this week, but developer Funselektor Labs say that it’s been delayed until August 23rd “due to a store issue that was out of our control.”
I had a lot of fun with Absolute Drift last year, so it’s good to see the series become available to a wider audience.
