Metal Drift is a futuristic arena combat game in drift-tanks. It is team-based with online multiplayer. You can level up your player and your weapons over time to unlock more weapons and upgrades for your tank. Metal Drift features 56 different tank configurations with various weapon and upgrade selections to choose from. In addition, the drift-tanks have a unique energy system that allows the pilot to direct acquired energy into a speed boost or to power up weapons for extra damage. The game also features 5 different arenas, each with their own racing lines and boost tunnels.
We're releasing an update for Metal Drift on the 17th. New features will make it easier to find people on-line. We've also added new tank skins to indicate what level you are.

So Brian has been hard at work on a stand-alone install version of Metal Drift. This version can run independently of Steam and will be additionally releasing on Desura, Direct 2 Drive and Gamers Gate! All four communities will be able to play together with the new version. We’re looking forward to seeing the new surge of activity on the servers.

Brian took care of some pesky bugs as well:The player counts on the servers are accurate now. There was an issue with the Steam servers, but now that we’re running independently, the number of people you see on the server list is actually correct.
Some miscellaneous additions:
I hope you’ll all join us for some super ’splody action packed carnage!! Brian and I are jumping in at 6pm PST nightly. -Weston
