IMPRESSIVE VISUALS: The game looks amazing on all devices!

This enables you to play without having to do too much at all, simply select when you want to drift or use nitro.

As well as this, the game will ask you to select a path at each 'junction'. Should there be a ramp and a road to take, you'll have to swipe according to which one you want to use.

Moving Forward

The next major step is getting started with your first car. This will be the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

You'll start with 15,000 credits, so we recommend getting a few upgrades in on your car. You won't need those credits to unlock new cars in future (more on that later).

Now, get started with you career and start earning some cars you really want to race in!

Completing these will earn blueprints (the new way of unlocking cars) and credits.

There are also Daily Objectives and wider career achievements. We highly recommending completing these.
