ABOUT DRIVE - VR Arcade Racing
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.
Strap in, put the pedal to the floor and see if you can 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.
No headset? No problem. Play Drive in screen mode with VR disabled.
