Real World Racing Version Update 1.22 Released

March 13th, 2014

Hi everybody! We're hard at work on the next major content release, but we managed to squeeze in a small version update to iron out a couple nasty bugs and add a requested new feature.

The highlight of this update is the ability to manually shift gears even when using the default Automatic Transmission mode. This allows, for example, to shift to a lower gear manually after taking a sharp bend, especially when using cars rated for lower acceleration. Conversely you might want to shift to a higher gear earlier in cars with different specs.
If left alone, the car will revert back to the usual automatic gear shift as soon as another gear shift is required.

Version Update 1.22 Changes List

  • Manual gear shifting when using Automatic Transmission
  • Fixed an issue that made the secondary objective in Junior Series S3 only attainable during the first lap
  • Improved Steam Cloud integration to prevent save data loss under certain conditions
  • Minor bugfixes and preparation for future content updates

I did a quick YouTube video review which you can view here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSfDLG1WNo8

I am an avid sim racing fan and typically steer clear of any sort of arcade racer. This take on the racing genre is a nice change of pace and great fun. Aerial photography from actual cities are used and then race track objects are added in to make a course. This is quite a bit of fun and well worth the full price of $15. If you catch it on a discount even better.

Pros:
Fun unique design using the aerial photography. Someone referred to it as Google Maps with racing, and its very close.
Lots of cars and tracks.
Multiple game modes: Race, Time Trial, Surivial, Arcade Checkpoint.
16 player multiplayer out of the box.
Cheap buy in with promise of additional content at no extra cost.
Great soundtrack

Cons:
A bit too much motion blur for my liking. I can see some people finding this hard to track.
Multiplayer can be tough to find a match. This can be remidied by increasing the player base.

Google Maps + Micro Machines = Real World Racing

Fun game, with lots of potential. Hopefully 'Steam Workshop' will be available at some time in the future so you can create and share your own livery's *hint hint*

8/10.
Outstanding visuals, smoot controls. A very fun game indeed.

WOW, this game is so much fun. Graphically its stunning considering its using satellite imagining on Real cities to make race tracks. And there is sooo many tracks once you start playing the main game. Online is fun and additive. Car handling has a realistic feel to them, they feel weighty like a real car but yet still keeping it enjoyable to play, with a few arcade twists thrown in.

Something i would love to see down the line is make your own Tracks, Now THAT would just be amazing.

Nice game, but I find that all the track detail makes it really hard to follow the cars.
