Play OverviewPlay Overview

Drive Buy (2019) is a vehicle combat game where you race around an arena world to make the most credits. The game is fast-paced and strategic with a variety of power-ups, game modes, customisation, maps and the ability to play with others online. In this way, it's similar to other popular competitive online games like Rocket League.

Each mode offers different ways to earn credits, team formats, weapons and hazards. In Delivery Battle, you deliver your own packages to earn credits and other players can steal from your earnings using power-ups. In Piggy Bank, you gain credits while holding the pig, you win by being the first to get 1,000 credits or the most credits when the timer runs out. Payday, at the start of the match, pick up as many credits as you can, then get power-ups and weapons to battle with until the time runs out.

After each game, you can customise your cars with different boost trails, vehicle skins, wheels, emotes and badges. These items can be won by playing or winning matches. There are also challenges that can be completed whilst playing, for example, "Get Revenge On 3 Drivers", to get more credits. Once enough of these are completed you are rewarded with a new item or character that can be equipped to use in the game.
