Buy the Victory Deluxe Pack for exclusive contents!

Victory Deluxe Pack



The Deluxe Pack gives you a handful of Gears Credits and three exclusive cars you can use on ordinary tracks and all events. This pack includes:
  • 3 exclusive Special Deluxe Racing Cars (super fast 60PI cars: 1 Legend car, 1 Classic car and 1 Formula car)
  • 15000 Gears Credits (you can speed up your multiplayer career or create several racing cars from scratch)



Victory is a fully featured multiplayer online racing game you can enjoy in multiple ways.




In Victory: The Age of Racing, cars can be USER GENERATED: players have an unprecedented degree of freedom in choosing car blocks, parts, colors, decals and shapes for their own customized car. We also created the block system, where you can switch different parts of your racing car until you have reached your favorite design.








You can control your car choosing between gamepad, keyboard and steering wheel.

  • Keyboard controls with assisted steering
  • Full gamepad compatibility 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)

We've also 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, with a simulation of analog controls even when you're using 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 and then we added improved assisted driving systems, so you can experience the game as you wish, enabling or disabling driving aids whenever you like to.




PvP competitions with multiple game modes and multiplayer live events 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 is online and what he is doing, then creates live events which 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 last for days, with online rankings in real time)
  • Quick Race (multiplayer race)
  • Handicap Race (multiplayer race, the winner gets an handicap for the following race)
  • LAN mode supported: create a LAN Party and race with your friends!

Race Zones & Tracks


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



Car attributes and setups, different engines, tires, accessories and more: this is your personal customized car!



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






Choose from different 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 other new cars and reach the top of the rankings.




  • Achievement system with rewards (money, widgets, driver titles) and over 300 different achievements to unlock
  • 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

Pre-Release Review
Posted: April 1
This game is an example of a question a lot of game devs have: Do we make the game cost money, or do we make it have exceedingly annoying microtransactions? "Lets do both!" said the devs of this game. I want everyone to know that this game used to be completely free, but now it seema the devs got a habbit of smoking lots of marajuana in a short period of time. The driving is allright, but not good, and the promised car costomizing is utter s#!t (probably because of it begging you to spiew a constant supply of money in its genaral direction.) Loading times are infinant and the UI wad put together by a gibbon on acid. All in all this game is a measly 3/10 for being not only bad, but downright depressing.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT support these developers!
They call themselves "Vae Victis Games", and if you'll read (even on WIKIPEDIA) about origin of this latin sentence, then you will fully understand why they've picked this name for their company.
It fully reflects what they're doing, both literally and figuratively.
Second game made by the same people "Racecraft" can be found HERE.
Yes, they jumped from one game to another before they finished even half of their first "work of art".
"Victory: The Age of Racing" abused "Early Access" idea for a long time and from all directions.
To be honest - this title already died long time ago.
It was a regular paid-game in the past and developers switched into "Free to play" model showing middle finger to people who already paid for it.
It is just a weak shell of a game, a clean rip-off from early-alpha. I think I know how we can call this with a clear conscience - early-alpha demo of early-alpha game.
This title is dated already in every point - graphics, sounds, mechanics.
There's a lot of interesting racing games available on Steam, so simply do not waste your time on this abandonware garbage.
What about Racecraft?
I gave it a chance and played a bit, and it's even worse than this! and I am 110% sure it will stay in this form for whole eternity.

I bought this game some time ago. Then they announced they're done making this game and continue with RaceCraft (we got that for free instead of Victory: TAOR). Now today I get an email that it's become free-to-play and that you can buy a DLC called: Steam Founder Deluxe Pack.

I ♥♥♥♥ING bought this game and I don't even get the Steam Founder Deluxe Pack for free? I get nothing back for buying this game in Early Acces, only another game that I never wanted.

This is really bad and awful of you guys.... shame on you

TL;DR: Paid 15 euro on steam store where it was never mentioned it would go free to play. 2 years later it goes f2p and they dont even give me 6 euro DLC???

Look at my gametime. You think it's too early to write a review?
Normally I'd say yes. You are right, but:

I haven't had the chance to play at least once till now!
You wait at the "logging in"-screen
You wait at the "loading personal data"-screen
and finally i waited at the "start-screen" of the game.

Thats ALL my game- time so far...

What would you do?
Suggest this game???

I would like to know what piece of work this developer is. I had a spare code for the game and wanted to trade, so I posted a trade offer in froum in trade section and developer banned my permanetely. The reason of blocade is blank... he didnt even insert a reason. I will not support this kind of developer who acts this low so be on the lookout for their trash game Racecraft which will receive review as soon as it is possible.

First off, for me atleast, the game crashes a couple of times when I loaded it in. Secondly the amount options in the configuration menu are appalling, i know this is a free game but still. Even though it is 500mb's i still wouldn't download it if i were you

Pros:
-The game is free.
-Boots with a easy to use options menu
-Got into my first race fairly quick

Cons:
-Arrow key controls for a driving game
-No controller support
-Auto slow down spots
-Other cars have no mass
-Mediocre sound design
-A weak sence of speed

Bottom line
If this game came out in 2004 it would be a hit,
too bad it feels outdated and it only came out this year.

2/10

Game was never finished, and won't be........ because they've moved on to another racing game. How unfortunate and, I guess convenient for the devs. Early Access needs to die, it's making devs lazy.

Early Access Review
Posted: November 6, 2014
Before I begin, I just wanted to share a very important fact. This game was available for free through amazon. When I first found it on amazon, it was a free to play game. that's all well and good, but when I found it for $15 on steam, that got me kind of iffy on the whole thing. it basically told me that they're charging for something they were willing to give out for free. But, I can get past that.

What this game does well is customization and gameplay. the controls are solid, the cars feel weighty and there's a fair bit of options available to customize your car right off the bat. all plusses in my book. So, The reason I don't recommend this is because there was no offline modes to be found. every single race was online. on top of that, there really aren't enough people playing to fill a race. personally, I had a hard time finding just one more person so I could actually race. That's because the race won't start if you're by yourself. the only time it does is if you're in hotlap mode. but the thing about that is this: you don't get credit for hotlaps. Nope. no rewards for that. none.

All in all, Age of Racing is a story of high potential with all the resources already there. but the game was let down by always online gameplay that's even brought triple-A games to their knees. if they ever add offline, I'll recommend it. but as long as it stays online only, I can't bring myself to do it.

tl;dr This game is fun, but overwhelming and dead. Developers have abandoned this game and left to work on the next one.

Victory: The Age of Racing is a racing simulator akin to stuff like Formula 1, but with arcade gameplay controls in the vehicles. I'm much more of an arcade racer (hence my repeated Black Flags when I play anything in here), so Victory does cater to my tastes as well as the average sim fan. The cars are very well modeled, and the tracks are pleasing enough.

However, the UI is incredibly overwhelming to me, and it's not intuitive for me to get around at all. I'm sure I haven't even discovered half of the menus because of how much there is to take in. Additionally, the multiplayer is dead and you'd be lucky to find anyone who plays this.

Most importantly, as other reviews have pointed out, the developers - Vae Victis Games - have fully abandoned Victory. The game has not been updated in two years, since April 2014. They're working a new game called Racecraft, and they have given free copies of Racecraft to everyone who purchased Victory before they made it free-to-play. Essentially, there's no reason to get Victory as it's superseded by Racecraft (which will not be free).

It's up to you if you want to give Victory a try, but it's dead.
