While kart racers aren’t the most common genre of games outside of the Mario Kart series, the PlayStation 4 has just gotten a new one today. The game is called Bears Can’t Drift, and has a variety of bears racing against each other with the use of “overpowered weapons” and varying difficulty levels.
Here’s a snippet from the PlayStation Blog announcement:
“Bears Can’t Drift uses icons rather than text to enable players, regardless of age or language, to play the game. Difficulty levels are designed to be discovered instead of chosen by menu. In fact, activating hard mode requires a great deal of skill!”
“All of the tracks are unlocked from the start, but not all tracks are equal. The forest levels are full of flowers and rainbows, welcoming the player with easy turns and short tracks; but beware the ruins, lava flows, and precipitous drops.”
The game is developed by Strangely Named Studio, who provide the descriptions for the following multiplayer modes:
- Put your skills to the test in a drive only, infinite time trial. Use the action button to quick restart if things go wrong and try to beat the top times and friends with four player splitscreen.
- Race against up to 8 AI opponents and 3 friends (with 4 player splitscreen) over three laps in this hectic battle for first place. Use the pickups found throughout the track to give you the edge.
- This twist on the battle arena will have you and your friends dashing back and forth between picnic baskets in a fun filled fight for food. Use the pickups to hit other players and steal their food but be careful not to get hit yourself!
Bears Can’t Drift is available now on PlayStation 4, though it is also available for PC.
