2K Drive Racing Game Launches Only On iOS

2k drive

2K Drive, the highly anticipated racing game from the creators of titles like Project Gotham Racing, has launched as an iOS-exlusive title in the App Store. We’ve been covering the story of 2K Drive for awhile, and Cult of Mac Games Editor Rob LeFebvre got to play it over the weekend at the Penny Arcade Expo.

Buckle-up and get ready for the most immersive automotive experience to ever hit your iPhone & iPad. 2K Drive provides you with a variety of experiences to test your driving skills – including licensed cars, real locations and dozens of exciting challenges in an authentic world rooted in motoring culture.

Expert driving will earn you stars and coins to purchase boosts, upgrades, new cars and more! 2K Drive lets you compete online with your friends and the world, to earn the best scores, bragging rights, and rewards ahead of your rivals.

Live news feeds deliver the world of automotive culture right to you, so when you’re not driving, you can read, watch videos or view photo galleries – and if you see something you really like, share it with friends.

Unlike Real Racing, 2K Drive isn’t plagued by the freemium business model most mobile games are adopting nowadays. There are no in-app purchases! The game’s graphics look great, and one interesting feature is “RaceFace,” a setting that lets you superimpose your face onto your driver.

2K Drive costs $7 in the App Store. Props to the developers for charging a premium for what looks like a solid game.

    Where is this myth coming from that there are no in-app purchases (I’ve seen this stated by multiple sources)? Is this a statement put out by the developer? It is clearly not true. There are 5 in-app purchases.
