The name "Crooz" probably doesn't ring a bell for you unless you're reading TouchArcade from an Asian market, in which case, you probably are totally familiar with them. Basically, they're fiercely competing in the mobile arena with GungHo, who you probably know of as the Puzzle & Dragons [Free] developers. Well, Crooz now has its sights on the western market, and the first title it plans on releasing later this month is the drift-centric free to play racer ACR Drift. It actually has already soft launched in Australia, and we've got a thread for it in our forums... although there isn't a whole lot of activity yet.
Aside from a new trailer, ACR Drift also has a worldwide launch date of
February 20th late February. I'm very curious how this game is going to do, as it's been developed in part by Eutechnyx who is responsible for the online racer Autoclub Revolution. So, we're dealing with people who already have experience building a racing game teaming up with a company who knows how to do free to play well.
If nothing else, the customization aspect seems pretty cool. I can't wait to have the ridiculous spoiler-filled car of my dreams.
