Powered by Vamos engine (see here for details), VDrift is a cross-platform, open-source driving simulation made with drift racing in mind, and it’s currently available for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Windows (Cygwin). Although the game is in an early development stage, it is supposed to be very playable and quite featurepacked, with 19 tracks (including the Nordschleife track), 28 cars, AI players, “very realistic physics” and a (simple) multiplayer network mode.
Initial screenshots look a little rudimentary at times, but seriously sweet at others. I look forward to playing this one and hope to have an in-depth view of both Vamos and VDrift over the coming months.
