iRacing has shown significant growth lately as its passionate racing community continues to expand. If the recent announcement that the subscription-based sim had exceeded 800 million laps wasn't enough, iRacing has now been Greenlit on Steam following a successful voting campaign.
It's a significant breakthrough for iRacing.com, which should surely broaden their audience considerably given the accessability of the Steam platform. “Thanks for the support everyone,” iRacing’s Kevin Bobbitt commented. “We still have a bunch of work to do to get up on Steam but we are through to the next step in the process.”
It's also a significant step forward for the PC sim racing scene - iRacing now joins the likes of fellow sim racing developers Slightly Mad Studios, Simbin & Kunos Simulazioni on Valve's platform.
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.
Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.
Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
