  1. This year marks the first where we will not see a new version of Forza Motorsport release on its usual 2-year cycle. This mostly has been due to the longer-than-normal duration of product support and enhancement. It was only recently announced that development had just switched from enhancing FM7 to a new title. In the meantime, what new Forza experiences can fans enjoy? A second map DLC for Forza Horizon 4 shouldn't be too far away, but if you're a fan of gaming on the street, then Forza may have just the thing for you. Announcing Forza Street Available for PC, Android and IOS, Forza Street appears to be a rebranded version of the existing game Miami Street , but will be available as a free-to-play title later this year. Watch the trailer below to learn more. It is also possible to find footage of Miami Street on YouTube Do you play mobile racing games? Are you interested in trying out this title? Let us know in the comments below.
  2. The eSports team at Slightly Mad Studios have lifted the lid on another round of competition, featuring multi-class racing. Recognised Pro teams have been invited to join the tournament in GT3 cars, while all other PC players can register to fill the remaining 30 grid spots in Touring Cars, a first for the series. The Community Events section of the game will soon host qualifying rounds to find these 30 challengers. Even if you're not a big eSports fan, it's always fun seeing how fast you are against a large pool of players. Have a gander and scroll down on this page to view the details and submit your registration for the Challenger class: https://www.projectcarsesports.com/smsr2019.html Oh, and the series prize pool is a cool €20,000.
  3. The Fate of the Furious Is Coming To Forza 7 Turn 10 have announced that Forza Motorsport 7 will receive a ‘The Fate of the Furious Car Pack’ at launch and that it will be free to the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions of the game, or available standalone for a price. Created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, the pack features ten cars all authentically reproduced from those found in the latest of the action-packed blockbuster series. Reaction to the pack has been mixed, with some scratching their heads and questioning whether the ‘Motorsport’ branch of Forza is fitting for a pack like this, especially as the 'Day One' pack that is given as one of the bonuses for those who have bought the more expensive versions - feeling that it’s more suited to the Horizon games than it’s track based brethren. Forza Motorsport 7 - ‘The Fate of the Furious' Car Pack 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline Special The Fate of the Furious Edition 1966 Chevrolet Corvette The Fate of the Furious Edition 1968 Dodge Charger The Fate of the Furious Edition 1971 Plymouth GTX The Fate of the Furious Edition 2013 Subaru BRZ The Fate of the Furious Edition 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter The Fate of the Furious Edition 2015 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe The Fate of the Furious Edition 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT S The Fate of the Furious Edition 2016 Subaru WRX STI The Fate of the Furious Edition 2018 Dodge Demon The Fate of the Furious Edition Amid the mad machinery in the pack is Dom’s all-wheel-drive (!) Dodge Charger in all its battle armoured glory, a gorgeous Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe, a slightly heavily worse for wear Chevrolet Fleetline Special, and several more. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7356,7355,7357,7362,7363,7360,7359,7361,7364,7358] It is what it is though, and so if you are a big 'FnF' fan then this is very likely right up your street racing avenue.

Mantis Burn Racing is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
  5. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo Out Now! The Forza Motorsport 7 demo is out now for download on Xbox One and PC, giving players a real taste of what they can expect from the next in the amazing Forza Motorsport series before it officially launches in a little under two weeks. While waiting for it to download you might like this glimpse at the demo’s content courtesy of the official Hoonigan YouTube channel. A bunch of them got together and challenged each other to a hot lap contest and through this we get a good view of the racing experiences that can be had in it. It also gives players of the demo something to aim for as all the times are posted. And with players being able to take a heavy but extremely speedy racing truck round Mugello, pilot the cover car Porsche 911 GT2 RS through one of the new Dubai environment tracks, or hang on to a Nissan GT-R at a soaking wet storm hit Nurburgring Grand Prix circuit, there should be enough here to tide them over until they get their hands it on for themselves. In addition to this Turn 10 have set loose the official Launch Trailer and posted a new batch of screenshots. Right enough of that, go download the demo for Xbox One or PC now. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="7325,7324,7319,7322,7323,7326,7321,7320] [via Forzamotorsport.net] 2017-09-19 21:01 GMT: Updated screenshots with high-resolution versions
  6. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo Announced Turn 10 have announced that Forza Motorsport 7 has gone gold, and that a demo will be available for Xbox One and PC on September 19th. We are also treated to a look at the official commercial for the next in the highly-popular racing series. ‘Musical Cars’ is a fun advert which takes on the typical musical chairs theme but you guessed it, replaces them with cars. Watching a group of people, including professional driver Ken Block, nonchalantly walk around a collection featuring his own “Hoonicorn” Mustang, a Pagani Huayra, Plymouth Barracuda and more, the music inevitably stops and the race is on to not be left without a driver's seat. https://youtu.be/_PKL3323wkQ Those who weren’t too slow, get into their cars and delight our ears to a delicious symphony of engine start ups and exhaust notes. A really nice top down shot shows each one speeding away and heading out on to the track... except for the Plymouth, which just wants to burn rubber it seems. A brief bit of on-track action follows, and then it switches from the inside of the real car, to the in-game version. As I said it's a fun watch, with an aim to show the fun that all types of player can experience. Make sure you watch the whole thing as there is a nice little finisher at the very end that raises a smile. Forza Motorsport 7 Demo The official demo for Forza Motorsport 7 is coming for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. The demo features three unique racing experiences in Forza Motorsport 7, showcasing the depth and breadth of the experiences available in the game. Drive the Forza Motorsport 7 cover car – the Porsche 911 GT2 RS – to the brand-new Dubai circuit and experience the thrill of navigating the Jebel Hafeet Pass, one of the most famous driving roads in the world. Or, pilot the massive Mercedes-Benz Tankpool racing truck to victory at the high-speed Mugello circuit in Italy. For drivers who want the ultimate test, the Nissan NISMO GT-R LM is available for a race at the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit. Forza Motorsport 7 is out October 3rd for Xbox One and PC. (Ultimate Edition owners get earlier access on September 29th) [via Forzamotorsport.net]
  7. The Need for Speed In Assetto Corsa Relive that classic The Need for Speed rivalry between the Ferrari 512 TR and the Lamborghini Diablo VT with this quality mod for Assetto Corsa (PC). Demonstrated beautifully by YouTuber GamerMuscleVideos as he takes both around the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, it is clear to see that both of these cars have drastically different handling characteristics: where the Ferrari is quite nimble and a handful, the Lamborghini lazily lumbers about, but is grippy to a point where its power can be be put down early to get a good run out of corners onto the faster sections. Even though the video is shown around a racing circuit, it is worth remembering that the game does have the road course layouts of 'Black Cat County' and 'Highlands' that will help even more in delivering that classic NFS vibe. Not to mention the extra locations that the modding community have created. With its extremely well-crafted car models, and physics and sounds getting good impressions, this user-created add-on is bringing a little bit of the old into the new, and that is something that will always be welcomed. Seeing these two brought up to date and racing one another invokes major feels, however it should be remembered that is where it ends as AC is a simulation, therefore the arcade madness play style of before, will not do your race hopes well at all. This pack includes both cars and race grid templates to be used in Content Manager for each car, so it loads the same opponents from the original game. Both cars can be found together under it's own brand, it's called "NFS Tournament Class A". The rear wing on the Diablo can be turned on and off from the Aero tab in the setup options. If this has got you eager to do this yourself, head over to RaceDepartment, sign-up and download NOW!
  8. Road Rash Returns! Motorcycles, speed, police, crashes and violence. This is Road Rash and it is one of the best games I have ever had the joy to play. Race on your bike through the pack while avoiding all manners of hazards from other riders, traffic cars, pursuing police and other obstacles. Punch, kick and bash your way past your opponents and the motorcycle cops trying to stop you as you hurtle towards the finish line, preferably at the front of the pack, and in one piece, in the aim to become the outright champion! Watch as your rider flips and tumbles when you collide with the static and moving dangers that litter the sides and occupy the roads you travel. Laugh (and get annoyed?) as your bike gets knocked further away from your rider by another vehicle and they have to chase after it, eager to hop back on and return to the race. Oh yes, this game was (is?) so much fun to play and despite it looking sooooo old and blocky compared to the technical and gorgeous marvels of today, there is still something about its gameplay, even now. If you’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing any of this for yourself or want to revisit old bash-your-face-in-ful, then thanks to this new thing they call the internet you can go and do so, in fact you can play Road Rash and its sequels and judge if I am merely looking through rose-tinted spectacles. No matter what platform you played this on, it was always the same simple formula: racing, fighting and crashing. And at a time when car games were flooding onto the scene it was good to be able to try something else. Throw into the mix the ability to cause some hurt, and it's no wonder these games became so popular! And if after giving it a go you too want more and are wondering why there is no modern-day equivalent, then worry not, as there is an indie title currently in development called Road Redemption that is available for PC on Steam 'Early Access', that aims to bring the motorcycle-racing-beating-up-opponents genre back! Gamespot recently took a look at it, and despite it being a bit rough around the edges, it's very much full of the qualities we would expect from one that wishes to emulate this icon. And until EA find the will to actually set it loose again, this is as close as we can get to a new version.
  9. Forza Horizon 3 Loves (Hates?) Mountain Dew A new car pack is out now for Forza Horizon 3 and response to the ‘Mountain Dew’ Car Pack is tepid at best, with more players than usual calling it out as weak. The main reason for this is because back in January the developer version of the PC game was mistakenly made available, and as a result, a look at possible upcoming future content could be performed. Therefore, with players waiting for their desires to show up, it is understandable that a new pack will be criticised or result in disappointment for them. However, even if that info wasn’t already known, impressions from around point to this pack still failing to excite players. By all means that doesn’t mean every car pack has to be gold as players will put up with a crap car among the rest. But that’s just it, the rest doesn’t save it, and that’s what is making this a hard sell. Forza Horizon 3 - 'Mountain Dew' Car Pack 1951 Holden FX Sedan 1971 Chevrolet Vega GT 1973 AMC Gremlin X 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX 1996 Ferrari F50 GT 2013 Dodge Dart GT 2016 Lotus 3-Eleven Maybe it will get by on just providing something else to drive and tune in the game, and who knows, perhaps it will find its admirers out there.

  10. Need for Speed Payback The name of the next title in EA’s long-running Need for Speed arcade racing series has been revealed as Need for Speed Payback ("Payback") and will launch worldwide for PS4, PC and Xbox One on November 10th. A trailer for the new game, that has been in development for two years, was premiered today and already it is causing quite a bit of discussion between players and fans. Mostly because a broad set of them wanted nothing more than what is essentially a carbon copy of the 2015 edition -- just throw in more street racing, drifting and customisation and these folk are more than happy. Others however are excited at the prospect of starting with a piece of scrap and building it into something magnificent, more challenging police pursuits (hello Rhino!) and a story that seems to be more involved than its predecessor. From the first-look it does appear that “Payback” is actually including aspects that all NFS fans have enjoyed the series for over its time, whether it can all coexist or will make some feel excluded because of this spreading out, will remain to be seen. Watching the reveal trailer above it cannot be missed that it contains many sequences that echo those of the Fast and Furious movies, particularly the more recent outings. But consider that the much loved Underground and Underground 2 were games that emulated those films of the day and in a funny way "Payback" is doing exactly the same. (FAMILY!) As with all NFS games it is the cars and where you will be playing with them that matters most to people. And “Payback” is set in a region called Fortune Valley, a place that closely resembles the areas of Nevada, including of course, Las Vegas. The cars range from your everyday street cars to supercars and onwards towards the pinnacle of the hypercar. For those worried that the EA exclusive Porsche deal may have resulted in some bad blood between the two, fear not as Porsche is in. We won’t have to wait long to get a better look at “Payback” as the game will be at EA Play along with a comprehensive showing at E3, both of which take place in the coming weeks (of course you already knew that right?). Need for Speed Payback is due out on November 10th worldwide for PS4, PC and Xbox One. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7001,7002,7003,7004,7005,7006]
  11. DiRT 4 Rallycross Gameplay If there is one motorsport that is fun to watch every time it is on then it is Rallycross. Combining typical versus racing with rallying is just something that works and DiRT 4 showcases this with its newest trailer. Being the official game of the World Rallycross Championship, it would be easy to discount DiRT 4 and see their push of this form of racing as an attempt at getting people into something they are heavily involved with. But this would be unfair, as rallycross is just such an immense display of control and skill, coupled with fierce rivalry, culminating into an incredible spectacle for those who are watching. And because of this, it is of no wonder that its popularity continues to grow. As when you have famous World Rally drivers such as Petter Solberg, Sebastian Loeb and Ken Block taking part, you just know that it has to be something special. Solberg himself is helping make the whole experience in the game even more authentic, providing feedback to the team at Codies into shaping it into as close as possible to the real thing. Whereas in rallying it is the surroundings you need to watch out for, in these races it is the other drivers that will be the ones to cause a spin, crash or even flip. It’s not an all out destruction derby or anything but there is certainly plenty scraped paint, dented bumpers, bent side panels and more, seen often at the end of races. Featuring multiple classes including Group B classics, Rallycross is sure to one mode that gains a lot of attention from players and probably gives the real championship some extra supporters. DiRT 4 is out for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in early June 2017.
  12. Assetto Corsa – Are You ‘Ready To Race’ The new Assetto Corsa ‘Ready To Race’ car pack is now available to purchase on Steam for the PC. As you might expect with a title like that, this newest ten car DLC has a strong focus on those that have taken part in, and even won, their respective championships. Taking up their grid positions within the list are multiple entries from Audi, McLaren and Toyota, together with single contributions from Lotus and Maserati. The team at Kunos have shown that they know their stuff when it comes to stacking automotive content into these packs and it is clear from what's included that ‘RTR’ is no different. With the stand outs of this pack in my view being the the rally Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo, which sports that unmistakable Castrol livery, and the Maserati MC12 GT1, which in my opinion is a better looking Enzo. However I do expect a large majority of players to gravitate towards the more modern Le Mans racecars and the road-going McLaren 570S. I certainly would say to players though to have a wee go around 'Highlands' in the Lotus 3-Eleven, as if ever there was a car and track made for each other, that would be it. (no need to worry about the rain either!) Assetto Corsa – Ready To Race Car List Audi R8 LMS 2016 Audi R18 e-tron quattro 2014 Audi TT Cup 2016 Audi TT RS VLN Lotus 3-Eleven Maserati MC12 GT1 McLaren 570S McLaren P1 GTR Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo Toyota TS040 Hybrid Console owners of the game will also see ‘RTR’ come to them but with no time specified except for “in the near future”, it’s almost a given that a decent wait will be required. Thankfully this should be made much more tolerable due to the recent release of the v1.14 update that also brought along with it, a nice amount of free bonus content. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" columns="5" size="small-post-image" ids="6967,6968,6969,6970,6971,6972,6973,6974,6975,6976,6977,6978,6979,6980,6981,6982,6983,6984,6985] An accompanying update with this pack’s release brings the PC version of the game up to this version too, with v1.14 for PC deploying a large amount of fixes and advances to further improve the title.

  13. Assetto Corsa “Ready To Race” DLC An all-new premium DLC car pack is heading to Assetto Corsa next week and it is very much squarely aimed at the racing enthusiast, with the forthcoming release presenting a package that caters to multiple racing flavours. Coming first to players on the PC through Steam on May 18th, and then (much?) later for those on PS4 and Xbox One, this newest pack provides the “most wanted” ready to race models from Audi, Lotus, McLaren and Toyota. Assetto Corsa - “Ready To Race” Cars Audi R8 LMS 2016 Audi R18 e-tron quattro Audi TT Cup 2016 Audi TT VLN 2013 Lotus Eleven Maserati MC12 GT1 McLaren 570S McLaren P1 GTR Toyota Celica ST185 Turbo Toyota TS040 Hybrid As can be seen from the list above, the term “Race” is being broadly stretched, as with the inclusion of the Lotus 3-Eleven we must be looking at the local trackday kind, whereas the McLaren 570S must mean the manner in which speeding away from the lights in the city is one too. Obviously I am joking here, though the McLaren road car does seem a bit of strange one you have to admit. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="6920,6928,6926,6924,6919,6921,6922,6927,6923,6925] There will be an update (v1.14) released on the same day and some of what this will address is shown below. Further details about the “next major Steam update” to be revealed over the coming days. Assetto Corsa PC – v1.14 Update Info Added wind algorithm Added AI Aggression selection More AI differences within a single lap to generate more battles Added AI wing setup variations New AI algorithms for understeer detection and downshifting Improved Downshift Protection Updated Steam statistic reader to synchronize steam achievement [via Assetto Corsa Facebook]
  14. DiRT Rally Free Play One of the best rally-racing simulations around at the moment is available to play for free over this weekend. And if you like what you see, then there is a 70% discount on the full game as part of the current ‘WEEKEND DEAL’ promotion on Steam. The ‘DiRT Rally Free Weekend’ allows the game to be played for free until 8PM GMT/UTC on Sunday, May 14th, with the promotional discount ending later the following Monday, at 5PM GMT/UTC. Regarded as one of the best Codemasters has ever produced, DiRT Rally's realistic physics and unforgiving nature, has gained it a loyal and passionate following. So much so, that its handling dynamics will be found in the next of the DiRT series, DiRT 4. With the team appearing to realise that offering players a choice of how their game will play, is something they do actually want. (I've been saying 'options are good' for ages!) And when you look at the direction they are taking their games now, it is kind of funny to think back to that whole "only 5%" thing from a few years ago. Best experienced with a wheel but not exactly lacking with the use of a pad, DiRT Rally is a game that is rewarding by being so punishing. The thrills felt at near-totalling your car as you chase those sector times, catch the wheels as you land from a big jump, and avoid those sheer drops, all in an effort to survive until the end of the stage, is one that got lost from racing games for a while. Even Codies distanced themselves away from it, but now they are back at it, and things are as better than ever. And for those who have systems capable of providing a good VR experience, the excitement is taken up yet another notch. Whatever type of racing fan you are, don’t miss out on at least giving it a try! [via Steam]
  15. Project CARS 2 Special Editions Are Pretty Special In today’s gaming space, special editions and pre-order bonuses are fairly routine and let’s be honest, not that special at all. There are some exceptions to this but generally it’s run-of-the-mill cheap extras that are usually provided. This is not the case at all with Project CARS 2. As rather fitting for a team called Slightly Mad Studios, they and Bandai Namco (shoutout to Lee ‘Pizza and Games’ Kirton!) have revealed the various special editions that are going to be available. Showing a high degree of respect towards their fans, the lowest version of these, called the 'Limited Edition', will be the same price as the Standard copy and will include the game (O RLY?!), steelbook case, stickers!, and an exclusive ‘Japanese Cars Pack’ that comes with four models from those of Honda and Nissan. A step up from that is the ‘Collector’s Edition’. This is where the cool stuff starts to come in, as inside the very nice looking Collector’s Edition Box there is everything that the 'Limited Edition' has as well as a Season Pass Download Code that entitles holders to the non-purchaseable ‘The Motorsport Pack’, a 200 Page Art Book, some Esport Live VIP Pass that gets you preferential treatment at real-world events, and an awesome looking 1:43 scale diecast McLaren 720S, in one-off SMS-R Stealth Satin. However, for as incredible as the ‘Collector’s Edition’ is, there is one other, and it is rightly called the ‘Ultra Edition’. Limited to only 1000 copies, this is the dog’s dangly bits of special editions, as contained within its Ultra Edition Box is the game, steelbook case, stickers!, DLC, Season Pass, Esports VIP thing and the Art Book from those above. And as good as all that is, we now reach a whole other level, as on top of all that, there is an individually numbered cap and a McLaren 720S sketchbook. This details the development and design of the car itself, with never-before-seen sketches, models, clays and renders, giving readers an in-depth look at how McLaren’s new supercar came to be. Wait is that it? I hear you say. What about that sweet little model the Collector’s get? Well dear reader I have left the best to last, as there is a model in this one but it’s not a cool little 1:43 scale version, instead for your major purchase, you get a 1:12 scale version!! The majority of people have probably seen 1:18 scale models for the most part in shops and perhaps in car showrooms, and even model collectors tend to prefer this size (yep, I do) due to the price to size ratio, and so a model car this size is absolutely nuts! But it is also phenomenal too, as this thing looks soooooo good. The satin black and orange colour scheme really is striking. And so if you are not loaded enough to put in an order for the real machine, well then this could be the next best thing. It will cost a pretty penny but for a change, it does actually look like you will get a good amount of worth for your hard-earned moolah. With E3 on the way and the halfway point of the year approaching fast, a release date other than LATE 2017, should be heading our way in the very near future. Project CARS 2 is due out before the end of 2017 and will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. [via Projectcarsgame.com]
  16. Forza Horizon 3 PC Improvements We were told back in April that an important update for Forza Horizon 3 on the PC was coming at the same time as the new Hot Wheels expansion, and to the relief of some on PC that promise was kept. These improvements are available to all on PC through the free automatic title update/patch that comes alongside the expansion and delivers “critical improvements” in CPU performance/thread affinity, adds more graphical options, and expands wheel support. We have observed that a large portion of players are CPU limited when trying to run Forza Horizon 3 at high frame rates, including locked 60 FPS and unlocked. By analyzing telemetry, we have developed targeted optimizations for this group of affected players by increasing the number of concurrent threads used by the render architecture. It gets quite technical in some of the explanations and I recommend reading the source for the full breakdown, but the core of it all is to improve the experience for those on PC who have not been having a fun time of it, or to increase the performance of those who are able to play but know/feel they should be getting more. We have updated our threading affinity model to make better use of all available cores. Along with this change, we have added a new graphics option to disable the new model, should you prefer. The Minimum Specification has also been lowered and a new ‘Very Low’ preset is available for those with systems that are therefore capable of running the game even if not at super sleek graphics levels. Extra graphics options with ‘Very Low’ settings are also added to help get those extra few frames out where possible. Forza Horizon 3 - New Minimum Specification CPU: i3-4170 @ 3.7Ghz GPU: NVIDIA GT 740 | AMD R7 250x VRAM: 2GB GDDR5 RAM: 8GB Hard Drive Type: HDD Resolution: 1280 x 720 Increased wheel support is also provided through this update, with all of the following now being able to be used to pilot (and crash) your vehicles in the game. Forza Horizon 3 – Expanded Wheel Support Logitech Driving Force GT Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel Logitech G920 Logitech G29 Logitech G25 Logitech G27 Fanatec ClubSport Wheel Base V1 Fanatec CSV2 Fanatec CSR Thrustmaster TS-PC Thrustmaster T150 Thrustmaster T500 RS Thrustmaster TMX V1 Thrustmaster TMX V2 Thrustmaster T300RS Thrustmaster TX 458 Edition Thrustmaster TX 599 Edition Thrustmaster TX Leather Edition Thrustmaster TX F1 Edition Thrustmaster TX GTE Edition Thrustmaster RGT Hopefully this does help a large number of you who have been unable to enjoy your games, and if it does, and you want to tell someone or show off your photo mode images, then we’d love to have you (and your teeth) join us on our community forum.

  17. The Crew Passes 12 Million Players Over 12 million players have test driven open world racer The Crew, Ubisoft have revealed. More than two years after its release, players are still jumping on and exploring the vast replica of the USA that is the game’s world. Needless to say, the team are delighted at this achievement, and keeping in line with this ‘12’ milestone, the official Ubisoft blog roped in 12 members from developer Ivory Tower, to say a little something. We’ve only chosen a few but you can view all at the source link below. Every time I realise how strong and growing our community is, I can’t help but get emotional. Releasing The Crew was a childhood dream come true: building a whole universe dedicated to exploration, competition, adventure, and creating glorious moments with friends or solo, behind the wheel of our favourite rides. I’ve never thought this vision would strike a chord with so many and I am always thankful to see how more and more players connect to this world, filling it with their own challenges and creations. One of them is a screenshot I’ve been using as a wallpaper on my smartphone for over a year now (see pic). It represents everything I like about The Crew: the call of the road, the fact that the destination doesn’t really matter as long as you’re enjoying the journey. And really, ours has just begun! – Stéphane “Fergus” Beley, Game Director We live in hope that the “ours has just begun”, is a hint to a possible sequel, that could see a reveal at this year’s E3. The Lead Game Designer isn’t afraid to admit that he has been beaten by many a player, but even with that revelation there is no bitterness held, as still they share a nice little tip for how to perform a better drift. From low-key road trips on country roads to exhilarating chases across the most iconic cities, I’ve lived countless adventures at your side these past two years. And even if I’ve designed a lot of challenges and missions in The Crew, I have to admit I’ve been whipped pretty badly by some of you in PVP! I still have a couple of aces up my sleeve, though, and today I’ll give away one of them: when you want to drift, just hold A & B at the same time – That’s called power drifting, and that’s my gift to all those who keep challenging us, helping us deliver the best experience possible, and giving us the ambition to always go one step further than expected. After all, this is your game too! – Paul Narducci, Lead Game Designer Depending on how you prefer your handling in a game like this – you will either love, or not have fond feelings for this next one: A few days ago, I went to a huge event and found myself in the middle of a crowd of 400,000 people. Being able to see and be part of the human tide was both impressive and humbling. Then it hit me: there are 30 times as many The Crew players! The rush of emotion I got was overwhelming – thank you all so much! You have no idea how inspiring you are. Fun fact: I used to tweak the vehicles’ handling on what we called “the Branchu Loop”, north-west of Monument Valley. Then I noticed you guys were using Observatory Dash as a training mission, so I’ve taken up using it as a test-drive spot – and still do! – Sylvain Branchu, Vehicle Handling Designer Post-release support has been quite something for this game, with the update to the engine, introducing weather, and of course the photo mode. These were all something the community asked for, and incredibly, they got it! Being big fans of the latter ourselves, it was nice to see that there is passion in the team for it too. Like a lot of our players, I’m a big fan of our Photo Mode. Between my everyday job and a burning passion for nice pictures, I’ve quickly become a real screenshot machine! So here are some tips for the amateur photographers out there: take the fuzziness into account before capturing, it’ll help you get more realistic pics. For tight close-ups, don’t zoom in right away. First, set the focal length to a minimum, then choose your angle, set the focus to your liking, and shoot. Don’t forget to send us the result – here’s one of my personal creations! – Aurèle Gannat, Game Designer This last one, displays the feelings many players have for a game like this, as in how it is all about the freedom given to the player to play the game how they want to. That's what gives this title and those like it, longevity. They are the game that people will jump back on during bouts of playing others, as there is just not really anything else like it that allows the passing of time to be done in such a manner. (except for going for a real drive of course) I was really into the Artic Monkeys’ AM album when I started working on The Crew, and especially the song “Do I Wanna Know”, which is part of the game’s soundtrack. To me, it feels like the spirit of that song has soaked the whole game’s DNA: it’s the perfect road-trip track, the kind you want to turn all the way up while watching the scenery go by, goofing around with friends, or showing off in your favourite ride. It’s really touching to see how players share this kind of connection to the game, giving meaning to even the smallest details. It makes us all part of this big community. – Lucie Dugand, Level Designer Well done to all those behind and involved with the game, it’s been a wild run the last years, and we wouldn’t mind seeing even more of it, in the future!

  18. Forza Horizon 3 & Hot Wheels! If there is one thing we have seen games do recently, it is to embrace the insanity! With games like Trackmania Turbo being the more modern pioneers of all-out blistering paced gravity defying racing action, it was telling that this gameplay style was popular with people as others seemed to latch on to it, such as GTA Online. And now Forza is getting in on it too! The second expansion pack for Forza Horizon 3 is due to release on May 9th and sees the open-world driving and racing spectacular join up with ‘Hot Wheels’. If you aren’t already imagining what this means, then all you need to know is to picture in your head: A LOT of the colour orange, driving-on-the-wall type banking, multiple loop-the-loops, skyscraper-high tracks and destruction derby inviting cross-track sections. (or you can just watch the trailer below ) Set along six new islands located off the game’s Australian coast, each configuration is connected to one another and will have players performing extreme stunt driving as they tackle their way through an all-new campaign. Explore the world of Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels in an all-new campaign, completing events on your way towards the ultimate stunt-driving test, an epic Grand Finale taking place on the massive new Hot Wheels Goliath circuit. – Forzamotorsport.net It will be the multiplayer where this expansion is likely to shine, as players will not only be racing on those famous tracks, but also a brand-new Playground Arena in which they can go nuts in. For the competitive bunch, there is the option to use the ‘Stunt Swap’ feature to modify sections of the tracks (the stunts perhaps?) and then challenge your friends to have a go. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6809,6803,6804,6802,6801] Being that this is a Hot Wheels expansion, there is naturally additional cars inside it. And yes, some of them are Hot Wheels legends! The Twin Mill, Bone Shaker and Rip Rod all feature in stunningly recreated excellence, with the Twin Mill looking especially good. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6807,6806,6808] It’s not all weird and wonderful fictional recreations either, as there’s some normal road-going, non-road legal, off-roaders, and an unexpected arrival that you may recognise from how it helped Jeremy Clarkson and James May tackle Iceland easier than Hammond and his doggies did. Forza Horizon Hot Wheels – Car List 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill 1972 Chrysler Valiant Charger R/T E49 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang 2007 Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT38 2010 Pagani Zonda R 2011 Hot Wheels Bone Shaker 2012 Hot Wheels Rip Rod 2016 Jeep Trailcat 2016 Zenvo STI There are 10 cars in total, including a brand-new unannounced at this time Barn Find. This is a radical departure from the typical offering you would expect but it looks to be one that is all about delivering just good clean fun. Not taking yourself too seriously is something that usually works out well but only time will tell if the playerbase likes what’s here. [gallery type=rectangular" size="small-post-image" link="file" ids="6820,6819,6818,6817,6816,6815,6814,6813,6812] Available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels will arrive on May 9th at a standalone cost of $19.99, or is available as part of the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass. Forza Horizon 3 – PC Update Tucked away near the bottom of this announcement, is a mention about a new update coming to Windows 10 on the same day. This will include some “significant improvements” including but not limited to: new support for numerous popular driving wheels improved CPU performance additional graphics options More details of what else is to come in it will be revealed on May 9th.

  19. Assetto Corsa HALF PRICE! There are MAHOOSIVE SAVINGS on everything Assetto Corsa right now on Steam. Everything including the game and its DLC has had its price slashed by AT LEAST 50%!! Incredibly the 'Porsche Season Pass' gets the best deal of the lot, with a crazy reduction of more than 60%! At these sort of prices, there is little reason for the already owning Assetto Corsa player not to purchase some of the additional content available. Or, for non-owners to take the plunge and find out for themselves why this sim-racer is highly regarded by so many. It should also be worth mentioning that the game is still very well supported and has a good 2017 ahead of it in regards to content to come. Such as the 'Ferrari 70th Anniversary Pack', 'British Pack' and more that still hasn’t been teased or shown to us yet. For those who enjoy their racing sims, this title is one that should already be installed. But if you do not, then here is the perfect opportunity to change that. [via Assetto Corsa on Steam]

  21. Assetto Corsa Hits The Highlands Of Scotland Kunos Simulazioni are well known for their transparency, in that they are consistently keen to share upcoming developments for Assetto Corsa. Over the past month they have been teasing and showing us plenty of the fictional Scottish location coming as a free bonus track. The new location is officially called ‘Highlands’ and is out now for PC on Steam along with a free bonus car, the mind-blowing Audi Quattro S1 E2 Group B! This new track has been created in partnership with nVidia and Sparco with the intention of creating the perfect race track… and in Scotland no less. Yes people, Scotland is perfect, the Italians have said so! It comes in four configurations with layouts comprising of Short, Normal, Long and Drift layouts: The ‘Normal’ version is 8152 meters long and is made up of fast, flowing but narrow roads with several jumps designed to thrill as well as test you. ‘Short’ is a return to some good quality urban style racing. Here players race around the city area and will need to be watch for those sharp angled turns and the barrier covered surroundings as at only 1714 meters, this will be a track that requires some precision driving. Looking for some grueling but fun punishment? Then the 'Long' layout has you covered (in sweat probably!). Only 12,191 meters long and containing all that the Normal configuration has, there are some extra slow curves, a series of speedy left and right turns and the terrifying "Cabhag straight" which runs for a colossal 3km. And for the drift muppets out there, you all get your own specially tailored 'Drift' layout aimed at achieving some serious angle at a ludicrous speed thanks to the combination of some smooth and flat curves allowing for long and constant sliding. Each layout shares the same start position and pit lane, along with the first and final 2 corners. The console community should be seeing arrive on their machines within the next month or so if previous content releases are anything to go by. In saying that, let's not see a time difference similar to that of the 'Red Pack' eh Kunos?

  22. Project CARS² After being teased by the numerous leaks and unofficial mutterings over the past few months, we are finally getting our first official look at Project CARS 2! ‘Difficult Second Album’ syndrome doesn’t seem to apply to pCARS2, with the trailer showing that it is improving on the high benchmark set by its predecessor. Other studios should be concerned with just how much Slightly Mad Studios are planning to include in this game, they are without a doubt living up to their name. The game will arrive sometime in late 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The Trailer: In the video we are shown features such as day to night, fully dynamic weather including snow and icy conditions, and so many vehicles that it is clear pCARS2 will have much more than what the original offered. The accompanying info below the video states that there will be “over 170 licensed cars” and that it will have the “largest track roster ever on console” which is a huge increase over the pCARS1 inventory of vehicles and a strong statement to make in regards to the amount of circuits. Being a technical showcase, support for 12K and VR is also a given and no doubt will be shown in all its glory on some snazzy new Panasonic gear. (that deal is still in place right?) Because of fan feedback, eSports and player championships have also been given a boost and will see some excellent features ensuring that pCARS2 is the go-to game for those who want to run these events. A multitude of new locations can be seen, such as an ice circuit set within a snowy wilderness however the traditional tracks such as the Nurburgring and Brands Hatch are still present. Rest assured that the new Ice Circuit will push the traction of whatever you choose to drive to the limit! New vehicles are also a given, with the Aston Martin Vulcan, new Honda NSX and a green wheeled Ford F150 being a few examples highlighted in the trailer’s footage. And if rumours are true, Lamborghini, Porsche and Ferrari could make an appearance. Previously, it was easy to excuse Porsche due to the EA exclusivity agreement, but Lamborghini and Ferrari were sorely missed from the first game and so fingers crossed that pCARS2 remedies this. It is looking more promising for Porsche though as that stupid exclusivity deal is finally dead as of the end of last year. All in all this game is shaping up very nicely and appears even at this early stage to be deserving of its ‘Ultimate Driver Journey’ tagline. If they can nail all that they have already shown and keep the game running smoothly and stable with less of the bugs and problems that the first one occasionally suffered from, then they could very well smash the opposition.

  23. FH3: Playseat Car Pack Been a bit of a wait for the first Tuesday of the month to arrive as this is when a new slice of car pack DLC for Forza Horizon 3 tends to drop, and with this February having a whole 7 days before a Tuesday rolls around it has felt like this latest pack has taken its time a little, but it hasn't, it's actually right on time. The new Forza Horizon 3 Car Playseat Car Pack is out now and contains a collection of seven new vehicles, including the brand new Aston Martin DB11... aaaaaand a Vauxhall Corsa. A bit disappointing in a way this latest release in my opinion, considering what we saw being leaked with the whole unencrypted developer version mistake at the start of this year, but hey it’s a new car pack, and there will be players out there who will very much be feeling it. Forza Horizon 3 – Playseat Car Pack 2017 Aston Martin DB11 2016 Cadillac ATS-V 1985 Holden HDT VK Commodore Group A 2016 Honda Civic Type-R 1970 Honda S800 1990 Renault Alpine GTA Le Mans 2016 Vauxhall Corsa VXR [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6585,6586,6587,6588,6589,6590,6591] The Playseat Car Pack is available to download now on PC (Windows 10), Xbox One and is free to those who own the Car Season Pass.

  24. GTR 3 Real SimBin and the GTR series of games are notorious in the sim-racing history books but despite their past glories there have been torrid times too. The history of SimBin is a fun one to read but what cannot be denied is that their games were some of the very best for racing simulation fans. For long time followers of the genre you may be thinking ‘GTR 3 is already in development is it not?’. Well yeah it was, I still have the GTR 3 announcement trailer on my Xbox 360 in fact, and we all remember that screenshot where they took a dig (‘threw shade’ for you kids out there) at Forza and Gran Turismo, but alas irony has a way of being pretty ironic, as the game seemed to go into hiding and experience a delay that Polyphony Digital would be proud of! Skipping forward only a short near to 5 years since we last heard anything, RaceDepartment has scooped that GTR 3 is on its way and that SimBin UK and Sector3 Studios (of RaceRoom Racing Experience fame), are in the process of creating the new instalment for a 2018 release. Unlike previous GTR titles which were PC only, GTR 3 will be coming to console too, on the PS4 and Xbox One. For so long console players have wanted a PC type of racing simulation on their side and now there seems to be a barrage of them consistently landing. It will also utilise the splendid Unreal 4 engine and so should be looking fine in the visuals area. Day to night transitions along with dynamic weather conditions have been confirmed too, with the tracks being prone to hazards such as aquaplaning. Puddles will pool and then gradually disappear as the cars move through the standing water or the weather improves due to the dynamic water control. Better damage modelling is another aspect that will be getting a substantial improvement with the new title, over the current system seen in RaceRoom. From the interview it does appear they view those on console as wanting less of a real experience than their PC counterparts, but here’s wishing they mean that the options will be there for them to do this, rather than the game being fundamentally set up this way on those platforms. "I think another point we need to take note of is, whilst the PC community would love this hard core simulation thing which is fine, as Allan said there is a console community that aren't going to fully adhere to that. The product at the end of the day needs to appeal to both sides, hardcore racer as awell and the casual gamer. – Chris Speed, Sector 3 CEO Take a look over at RD for the full interview and prepare for yet another incredible racing sim to vie for our affections. [via RaceDepartment]
  25. Assetto Corsa Takes The Highlands Road A good amount of new images and a couple of videos of the still as of now unnamed fictional Scottish location heading to Assetto Corsa has been posted by teaser-pleaser, Marco Massarutto. The new selection of images that have appeared over the last few days gives a further look at the Highland town track that the Audi Quattro S1 rally car was also shown in at the end of last month. We don’t know how many of the four track layouts this area will feature in, but we can see that this part which is made up of cobbled streets and surrounded by homes is before the longish narrow high-speed section. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="6574,6575,6576] Through only still images it is difficult to get a sense of how a course runs, and so thankfully, Massarutto has added some videos to his page. Rushing through at high-speed with a Ferrari 488 GTB, the small clip provides an idea of the challenges and thrills that can be expected at this point. var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.8&appId=159301820896907"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); " data-width="auto" data-show-text="false"> Some classic racers were also visible in the images shared. The best view of the “Highlands” track was in the latest video where we see a much longer video of Massarutto threading the 488 GTB (he REALLLY likes this car) through the opposing racers, racing cleanly and speedily as he aims to make it from last place all the way to first. " data-width="auto" data-show-text="false"> With very little space to run off the road. The edges are littered with rocks sitting close to the painted white lines and there are objects dotted along that will cause your vehicle damage or even end your race. The new track is expected in “late February” and will be available as free bonus content for all platforms. Whether they will all get the content at the same time is something we will have to wait and see. Assetto Corsa is OUT NOW on PC (Steam), PS4 and Xbox One.
