About Drift City

The storyline for Drift City takes place in the near future, where the world's infrastructure has been hampered due to global shortages of oil. The focus of the world has turned to the remote archipelago in the Pacific at Mittron Island where an amazing natural resource, aptly named Mittron has been discovered. Due to an influx of vehicles called HUVs that have invaded the island to terrorize and disrupt the city and economy, the governing body of the island, the OMD, has called in elite drivers from around the world to restore order. Players can play in Mission Mode and complete objectives assigned by the OMD. Missions vary in their objectives and stipulations with some requiring speed while other missions emphasizing safety. Delivery Service Missions are ongoing and a battle against the clock. In the Battle Zone players can take on other drivers in individual or team races and players can join up with friends or create their own Crew and race against other crews.
