The rumor is now confirmed, the LEGO 2K Drive video game will be released on May 19, 2023 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Switch and PC platforms via Steam. It will be an open mode racing game playable in solo or with others, with the possibility of bringing together two players in split screen or up to six players online and which will be available in three editions:
- LEGO 2K Drive Standard Edition (€59.99)
- LEGO 2K Drive Standard Edition PS5 & Xbox Series X|S (€69.99)
- LEGO 2K Drive Awesome Edition (99.99 €)
- LEGO 2K Drive Awesome Rivals Edition (€119.99)
The Awesome edition et Awesome Rivals Edition will add the soberly titled DLC Drive Pass Year 1 to the standard version as well as some more or less important digital bonuses such as vehicles or pilot figurines. In addition to the rolling, floating or flying machines included, it will be possible to build your own vehicle using the inventory of more than 1000 parts offered online. Models from the CITY, Creator or Speed Champions ranges will be available in the game, as will many biomes, challenges, mini-games, etc...
A pre-order bonus is also planned, the DLC Aquadirt Racer Pack. The official announcement of the game was supposed to take place on March 23, pre-orders will probably be open on the same date.
I'm waiting to see what's really going on in terms of playability before getting carried away, the mere presence of LEGO bricks in a video game is no longer enough to motivate me if the rest does not follow.
