Developer Eutechnyx, known mostly for its racing franchises, has reached two years of existence for Auto Club Revolution. This is a free-to-play racing game on PC where players can own cars and race them in a series of realistically built tracks.
For the occasion, Auto Club Revolution will receive a complete overhaul and launch as a “2.0” version on June 16, so today. It will be available as a Closed Beta through select regions first, before becoming the standard.
Current players should have immediate access to the Closed Beta version. Early backers will also be awarded other features before the general public.
For instance, the new version of Auto Club Revolution will support the Oculus Rift. It will become fully playable in virtual reality this fall.
Moreover, fans will receive to a garage that has a 360 degree range. Aside from the known models from manufacturers such as BMW or McLaren, brands like RUF and Maserati will be added to the roster as well.
Naturally, the overhaul comes with some new physics and such for increased realism during races. Even the sound gets a touchup, just to be sure.
For the new version, Auto Club Revolution will shrink down to a single download client. That should make it a little easier to manage.
Eutechnyx is rather prolific in its racing games. It’s also responsible for the yearly Nascar releases. Technically, it’s also the hand that made Ride to Hell: Retribution, but perhaps we shouldn’t mention that one.
