Eutechnyx has confirmed that their free-to-play online racing game Auto Club Revolution will receive the closed beta treatment this month and potential players can sign up to get involved via the developer’s official website.
If you’ve yet to hear about this new racing simulation from the studio which developed Ferrari Challenge, the project’s executive producer has handily summarised what the experience entails:
“Anyone who has played a chart-topping console or retail PC racing game will be familiar with many of the features in Auto Club Revolution,” explained Doug Wolff.
“Players will find an authentic racing experience in single player and multiplayer modes, drafting (slipstreaming), drifting, a fully-featured HUD, a suite of assists and much more.The surprise is that we have all of this wrapped up in a free-to-play game.”
Today’s communication also confirmed that multiplayer races have a player limit of eight and that the single-player mode will revolve around time trials and personal challenges for each racer.
In addition, any rogue drivers out there will also receive warnings and time penalties for cutting corners, leaving the track, driving backwards and being overly aggressive during races.
New driving franchises are proving increasingly hard to come by nowadays and we have our fingers crossed that this new offering will find its feet in an already competitive genre.
Expect to hear more about Auto Club Revolution very soon.
