SEOUL – Jan. 12, 2022KartRider Rush+, the action-packed mobile racing game from publisher Nexon, is receiving its first major update of the year: “Future Factory.” The latest season will bring with it the highly anticipated legendary lightning-fast speed kart “Beetle Dasher” and leaping item kart “Buzzwheeler.”

Included in “Future Factory” will be the two dynamic tracks “Trap Factory,” in which players race through a hectic machine shop and “Gear Grinder,” throughout which racers will dodge enemy robots and slip through moving doors. Players will meet “Brodi” the Factory Manager, “Dr. Q,” “Paper Bazzi” and various other all-new characters. In addition, “Butlerbot” will also be on hand to help players manage their Home.
Racers can also push their driving skills to the limit in the new “Mist Mode,” in which visibility is limited and reaction time is everything. Players will be able to check out the Kart Lab to test out kart prototypes. Furthermore, “Infini-Boost will be added to “Ranked Mode” and “Track Customization” will be open to all racers.
To celebrate the upcoming new season, players who log on now until Jan. 21 will be able to obtain “Brodi” and collect shards in special missions. Players can also earn “Quick L-badge*10” and “Silver Gear Starter*5” by leveling up until Jan. 27.
