Plot

A screenshot of several players at Cras City in Drift City.

The game takes place in the near future during a worldwide oil shortage. A mysterious material dubbed Mittron is discovered on an island in the North Pacific. The island was named after the material, and the Organization for Mittron Development (OMD) is set up to manage the island and its resources. This resource quickly became the preferred fuel for all methods of transportation as Mittron-fueled cars ran much longer, cleaner, and faster than traditional gas-powered cars.

Unmanned vehicles dubbed HUVs (High-Tech Unmanned Vehicles) began appearing around the island terrorizing the people. This threat has become so widespread that pedestrians no longer walk the streets for fear of being attacked. As a result, the OMD has started importing professional drivers to assist in destroying the HUVs and uncover the mystery behind their sudden appearance.

As the player progresses through the game, they may chose to be part of one of two factions, one, ROO, which seeks to take down the OMD government, or the player can choose to stay with OMD. It is later revealed that OMD created the HUVs themselves to prevent other larger countries from taking control of Mittron Island.

Gameplay

Physics in the game have been altered, making the game feel much faster and less prone to hazards than a racing game focused on realism. Players can smash through objects such as trees, fire hydrants, and street lights without breaking their cars. Since much of the game is within the streets of Drift City, traffic is always present. Thus, collisions with other cars have also been altered where the damaged vehicle will often go flying rather than stopping the player's car dead in its tracks.

Features

Mittron Island

Mittron Island consists of several cities: Moon Palace, Koinonia, Cras, Oros, Mitro City, and soon to come Neo City based on Taipei 101. Players start in Moon Palace and work their way into Koinonia, Cras, and then Oros by completing storyline missions and reaching certain levels (Excluding Mitro City and Neo City). Once these cities are opened, players can travel between them at any time using the highway system. Likewise to many racing games the game features modes such as Lap Time and Real Match where all players drive the same car in a competition.

Each server hosts a central hub known as the Driver Dome where drivers can converse with each other. The Driver Dome contains several buildings, which include the Battle Zone where drivers can challenge each other on preset courses, the Auction House, where players can purchase items and vehicles that others have posted for sale through an in-game browser, the Dealership, where players may purchase(and sell) new vehicles, the Parts Shop, where players may purchase new parts from an NPC, the Garage, where players can switch between each of the vehicles they own, and the Crew Center, where players can create a crew or participate and spectate in crew battles. The Driver Dome also has an underground level only accessible by players who are level 31 and higher which also contains the aforementioned buildings, but due to a switch of websites, this portion of the Driver Dome is currently unavailable to players at this time.

Rush Time

Rush Time is a feature of Drift City where anyone can join a massive "Boss HUV" chase, which consists of chasing one of five possible large HUVs, with significantly increased HP and different abilities. The event can begin once at least 7 players are within the Rush Time circle. Larger Rush Time events occur at scheduled times.

Users gain items by crashing into the boss HUV. The user who touches the boss last will receive a big prize: 3 Mittron Enhancers (used for upgrading parts) and some mito, the in-game currency. Except for scheduled Rush Time events, the Boss HUV is rarely defeated within the ten-minute limit. However, participating in Rush Time is the only way to obtain the highest level parts in the game, and many players participate in smaller Rush Times so they can obtain these rare parts to use or sell via the Auction House.

Undercity

Undercity is a dungeon instance where a party of players may participate in multiple HUV chasing events for items and money. Completing one round of Undercity earns the player a coupon for the Monster, a large truck with a high durability stat built to destroy HUVs.

At the final stage of an Undercity session, the party must defeat a Boss HUV within a time limit. Each city has a different Boss HUV, and when the Boss HUV is defeated, each player receives up to three items depending on how well they did. The game mode can give parts from special part sets that give additional stats if all of the parts are equipped, and the part sets available from Undercity also differ between each city.

The currently available Undercity missions are in Moon Palace, Koinonia and Cras. The Undercity mission in each city gets tougher and tougher. For example, the Koinonia mission would be tougher than the Moon Palace mission and the Cras Mission would be tougher than the Koinonia mission.
