CarX Drift Racing Online Editions: Which versions are available for each console?

CarX Drift Racing Online is a fantastic drifting game that we can't get enough of playing. What started out as a mobile exclusive has now branched out to PC and the home console market.

If you've got multiple systems that are able to play CarX though, which should you opt to buy the game on? And which edition is best? We've got everything you need to know right here!


CarX got its start as a mobile game on both Android and iOS devices. Right now, on both the Apple App Store and Play Store, CarX is absolutely 100% free to purchase. Android also has CarX Drift Lite, which is a toned-down version that older and less powerful devices are able to smoothly run.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN: CarX started out on mobile and it's still a great platform to play it on

It should also be noted that CarX's sequel CarX Drift Racing 2 is available on both the Play and App stores. These are currently the only places where you can play CarX 2. One other thing to keep in mind is that you cannot crossplay with the console and PC versions of CarX using the mobile version.


The largest range of options when it comes to purchasing CarX is on PC via the Steam Store. CarX has been available as a PC game via the Steam online market since 2017. Currently, the vanilla game is available for 40% off for £6.83 on Steam.

The “Complete” version of the game is currently going for £13.89, which is 55% off the RRP of £30.99. The complete version comes with the base game and the Season Pass.

Finally, we have the “Ultimate” edition of CarX. This version is retailing for £13.71, which is 49% off the RRP. The Ultimate edition contains the vanilla game and its “Deluxe” version. The Deluxe version gives players access to all cars, maps and car customisation options.

If you're wondering which of these versions in the best, it's actually the Ultimate edition of Car X. This is strange, because it's the slightly cheaper of the games, but that's how it goes on the Steam Store sometimes.

PC is also the only version of CarX where you can legally mod the game. So, if there is a car that you want that isn't in the vanilla game, PC is your best bet.


CarX was recently on offer on the PS Store, and got as low as £6 to buy if you have a PS+ membership. However, it’s now back up to its regular price of £18.99. This can change of course, and will likely go on offer again, but we can’t exactly say when. Keep your eyes peeled on the PS Store and it’ll pop up again for a discounted price.

Xbox One

Luckily for Xbox gamers though, CarX is still on offer! CarX is available on Xbox One via the Microsoft store for £13.74, which is 45% off the RRP of £25.99 for this version. This price will last for another four days then presumably revert back to its normal cost.

Something else to keep in mind is that you can play CarX on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X using their backwards compatibility features.

All prices and availability are accurate for UK gamers at the time of writing (29th June 2021).
