Metal Drift is a new team-based vehicular combat game set in futuristic arenas.

Posted by BlackJacketGames on Feb 4th, 2009

Portland, OR - January 20th, 2009 - Independent developer Black Jacket Studios announce their first title, "Metal Drift" to be released on PC in the first half of 2009.  Metal Drift is a team-based online vehicular combat game featuring drift-tanks that battle it out in a futuristic arena setting.

"There are a lot of things that come together to make Metal Drift a very different game", said Brian Ramage, President of Black Jacket Studios. "It's got the speed of a racing game combined with the first person view of a shooter, and the cockpit of a jet fighter sim.  We're emphasizing an immersive experience in a post-cyberpunk environment.  I haven't seen an arena combat game that really brings the player into it, so they feel the excitement of the crowd and the grandeur of a professional sport.  We're very excited to bring this kind of experience to life."

The game also features 5 different arenas, each with their own racing lines and boost tunnels.  "The arenas are free-form; you can drive anywhere you want to unlike racing games", said Weston Tracy, co-founder. "But there's also a racing element there since you are often chasing the ball, or rushing to a key strategic position."
