“Early Access gives you the opportunity to experience Victory during its beta stage and to actively support its development. Victory was designed to have additional content and gameplay features added overtime. Scroll down the page to find out all the details of our ambitious Development Roadmap.

We didn't design Victory based on marketing research, we did it only following our passion and to create the racing game we have always dreamed about, our ultimate goal is to create a sandbox racing game.

During the next months we'll polish the core features and improve the graphics, add full Steam integration and introduce new features like single player career, procedural racetracks, constructors with Steam Workshop, a league manager and more.

The core game experience is already in place so you can enjoy the game along with reporting bugs and giving us precious suggestions to create the great racing game you want.

That's why we're offering you the game at a discounted price for Early Access, and grant you the final version of the game without any additional charge. Get a Founder Pack and be welcome aboard.

Victory Dev Leaks 18: RaceCraft is coming

June 19th, 2014



We are facing one of the major challenges of racing games: being able to create unlimited race tracks having both a proper functionality and a great visual impact.


Check out a "leaked" video of our engine:
http://youtu.be/WWU6Oy0MxVY

Our R&D team is working on a procedural algorithm that randomly creates straight lines, chicanes, sharp turns, Esses, hairpins, etc. opening the way to structured weekly events based on always different tracks where players handle tires consumption, pit stops, weather conditions and limited car damages.

We called this new procedural track generation engine "RaceCraft" and we'll release it as a free demo for Victory: The Age of Racing in the coming weeks.

Given an initial seed and custom parameters, RaceCraft creates race tracks designed for sim and mid-sim players, with dynamic placement of all the objects needed on the track (starting grid, pit lane, fences, gaps, aprons, curbs, buildings, billboards, etc...).

In the current version you're already able to generate different seeds and then modify the tracks created on that seed by modifying various parameters.

We're now finishing our work on our updated graphic engine (shaders, etc) and creating lots of more objects to be placed on the procedural tracks created by RaceCraft.

The final engine will support race track themes and more parameters to play with to create your ideal racetrack.

Victory: The Age of Racing is now available on Steam:

Procedural Racetracks

We are facing one of the major challenges of racing games: being able to create unlimited racetracks having both a proper functionality and a great visual impact.

Our R&D team is working on a procedural an algorithm that randomly creates straight lines, chicanes, sharp turns, Esses, hairpins, etc. opening the way to structured weekly events based on always different tracks where players handle tires consumption, pit stops, weather conditions and limited car damages.



A fully featured race track editor will be the next step, letting players to create endless and different race tracks to be shared in the game and on Steam Workshop as well.

-

Constructor Expansion and Steam Workshop integration



Victory is going to be fully integrated with Steamworks' features. We'll add support for Steam Achievements, integrating them with our own achievement system (already working in the game).

We'll also add Steam Leaderboards and Friend system support, Along with that, we are leveraging our great car customization tool to create a Constructor Expansion with superior cars development capabilities to allow players to create and sell powerful and fancy cars in the game and also on Steam Workshop.

-

League Manager

Racing events are the juice of motor-sport games: we're designing an easy to use League Manager to allow players to create custom events by choosing car classes, regular or random generated race tracks, hotlap, qualify, practice, races and having a full set of rules and modifiers such as no collisions, handicap mode, last car standing, fixed PP, etc. All the events will be scheduled by a calendar and shared with Steam and Facebook friends.

-

Brand New Graphics



We are currently updating the textures, 3D models and shaders of all the car blocks, accessories and race tracks in the game. The results are amazing and will hugely improve the graphic quality of the game.

What you see in the image below is not a high-poly 3D model like the ones used for loading/garage screens in other games, but it's the actual car model you will use on the tracks in Victory.



We're trying to find the perfect balance between realism and performance. With the new shader models we bring both of them to the game: stickers and colorable shapes are better rendered, materials are more realistic and a better depth of field is a joy for the eyes.

The updated engine will bring major improvements in terms of graphics and performance. We will be able to support more cars on the track during a race while the game will run smoother and faster.

This big update takes a very long time to be completed, but fortunately we started it months ago; we're now at 80% so we expect it to be available soon.

-

Polishing and Optimization

After the completion of the new graphics we'll proceed to eliminate every minor bug, memory leak and other annoyances still present in the game. Before proceeding to the final polishing, we need to complete every major feature, but rest assured that the final game at the end of the Steam Early Access period will be flawless.

-

Single player career

We want you to enjoy Victory both in multiplayer and in single player mode: We are developing various single player modes that will create a career you can enter whenever you want to race against AI drivers.

-










Victory is already a fully featured multiplayer online racing game that you can enjoy in multiple ways. Here's what you get right now by entering this Early Access. We're also working on some cool brand-new features, so be sure to check out the development roadmap down below.




Racing cars in Victory can be User Generated: this gives the players an unprecedented level of freedom in choosing car blocks, parts, colors, decals and colorable shapes for their own customized car. We also created the Block System, where you can switch different body parts of your racing car to finally reach your favorite result.








You can choose between gamepad, keyboard, steering wheel or even the mouse as the primary control method in Victory.

  • Keyboard controls with Assisted steering
  • Full gamepad compatibility (Xbox 360, PS3, Logitech pads and more) with force feedback support
  • Full steering wheel compatibility with force feedback support
  • Mouse controls (move the mouse to steer, left/right click to throttle and brake)
  • Oculus Rift support (coming soon)

This gives the game great versatility and doesn't force you to always have the gamepad with you. We've worked hard to create the best keyboard controls available on the market for a racing game: an integrated artificial intelligence helps you steering, braking and throttling simulating analog controls when you're using a digital one like the keyboard.




Victory is an arcade racer with realistic physics specifically tuned to give an unprecedented car handling and an addictive racing experience. We started with a top-notch car physics engine developed in collaboration with Stefano Casillo, the author of the acclaimed racing simulator, Assetto Corsa: we then added improved driving assistance systems so you can experience the game the way you want, enabling or disabling driving aids whenever you want.




PvP competitions with multiple game modes and multiplayer events created live for inactive players.



Events, championships, daily races, different game modes... Everything is created in real time based on the status of connected players: a central server checks who's online and what he's doing, then creates live events that pop up on your main screen.

In Victory you can be active and choose what you want to do or just wait for the game to propose you new ways to race online and have fun.

Game Modes


  • Hotlap (single player mode)
  • Hotlap Party (multiplayer hot lap mode, up to 100 players, usually lasts 1 hour)
  • Hotlap Championship (multiplayer hot lap mode, can lasts for days, with online rankings in real time)
  • Quick Race (multiplayer race), various settings are available:
  • Handicap Race (multiplayer race, who wins get an handicap for the next one)
  • We also support LAN mode: race with your friends, create a LAN Party!

Race Settings


  • Collision mode: On, Off, Delayed
  • Zero PI mode: On, Off (once enabled every car will have the same performance in race)
  • Race Access: Public, Password protected
  • Race Restrictions (you can restrict your race only to particular performance groups of cars)
  • Grid Policy: Sorted, Random, Race Result, Race Result Inverted
  • Race Zone and Track rotation (sequential, random, fixed track)
  • Number of laps

Race Zones & Tracks


  • 3 different racing zones around the world
  • 15 different racing tracks



Car attributes, car setups, different engines, tires, accessories and more: It’s your customized car!

Each car in Victory is described by six different attributes: Weight, Aerodynamics, Traction, Grip, Brakes and Power.



Like in a role playing game, you have to spend Performance Points in six different attributes to finally reach the perfect attributes combination for your driving style and racing conditions. You can have multiple cars in the game and customize them for different game modes or race tracks!






Choose from different official teams and start your racing career. Each of the three car classes in the game has a dedicated World Championship where different racing teams are looking for the best driver: are you ready to put the pedal to the metal and wear the colors of your team on the track?



Each team will offer you different racing cars and you will have to unlock multiplayer achievements to progress in the team career, unlock new cars and reach the top of the rankings.




  • Achievement system with rewards (money, widgets, driver titles) and over 300 different achievements to unlock (soon to be integrated with Steam's achievements)
  • Fully integrated website with real time rankings and statistics of almost everything in game: check your rankings, different stats, every single car created in the game can be shared and voted!
  • Integrated Social Bar with race chat, race log, "last played with" panel, public chat, race invites, integrated friend system, online status settings and more!
  • 7 different game cameras: choose your favorite one when playing, each camera got different effects (shake, motion blur, helmet movement simulation, etc.)
  • As it's completely cloud-based an internet connection is required to play this game.

Early Access Review
*I hate racing games in general.* If there is one racing game to play, it's Victory: TAoR. Drive like a pro with all the works, or turn on all the automatic options and cruise along with the ease of 2 joy sticks. How cool is that? If you can't drive, this is a good place to start. If you've played racing games for years, there are tons of customization options in the garage, letting you fine tune to your personal driving style. This game is actually thrilling. IAP is sensible, mostly cosmetic, & each player starts with enough to build there 1st car. Fully playable as Early Access, there seems to be a lot more on the road for Victory, still yet to come.

Early Access Review
This game is clearly heading down the f2p path, so I would advise anyone interested to avoid dropping a single penny into it at present. Despite being advertised as having single-player support, the game is online-only and will not start unless you login to their servers with yet another account.

Early Access Review
My last review was negative and i decided to change it because (in a very fast way) developers decided to change the whole "buy gears" system they had in earlier versions back when the game was Free-to-Play.

The game is really nice; and best of all is that it is an Early Access and you'll probably see a lot of changes and improvements.

Keep up the good work and THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO US!
