Relive The 90s (Again) In #DRIVE Rally Early Access

For fans of the 90s rally scene, get to flick up dirt and drift the countryside in #DRIVE Rally Early Access.

#DRIVE Rally would have been mentioned sooner, but these past couple of weeks, there’s been a deluge of review titles, dicking about with the website (again) and simply no free time. As you might surmise from this post, there’s been some ”free” time.

From the Pixel Perfect Dude, this latest addition to the #DRIVE family (one earlier title on Switch and mobile), the goal is to recreate 90s rally nostalgia with various iconic tracks, legendary rally drivers and co-drivers with a… voice. A demo was played during Steam Next Fest, and it was great (at the time of writing, a playable demo is still available).

Key features include:

  • #DRIVE All Over the World: From the sunny landscapes of Dry Crumbs, through the whispering woods of Holzberg, to the chilly wilderness of Revontuli, each track offers unique features and asks drivers to go the distance.
  • Legendary Cars: Jump behind the wheel of legendary rally cars, including Das Holzwagen, The Doggo, The Bobond, and many more from the studio’s previous title #DRIVE. New from the ’90s’90s era are Das Sandsturm and Celestia, just for a start!
  • Passionate Co-Drivers: For better or worse, your co-driver is with you to the end! There to help and lend some humourous jabs, they’re your trusty navigator —and your worst critic.
  • #DRIVE Design: It’s your way and the highway, baby! From tires to tailpipe, build your car to your liking. Add your special touches with paintwork, decals, and decorations. Take a picture in Photo Mode – it’ll last longer.
  • #DRIVE Like it’s 1999: pumped up with 90’s90’s Easter Eggs and references in an adoring homage to the thunderous days of rally racing circa 1990s, this game feels like a finely-tuned arcade experience, with no coins needed.

Watch the trailer below:

#DRIVE Rally will be heading to Early Access in Autumn 2024, with a console release scheduled for 2025.
