What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to get our player community involved in the making and the evolution of the game. Racecraft has a sandbox concept and we think getting the game in the hands of players as early as possible is a really big opportunity. We invite the community to follow our progresses and share their feedbacks and suggestions on the development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect several iterations and updates in the next 12 months to achieve the quality level we have in mind for the full release of Racecraft. We will obviously continue the development even after the full release, as the potential of our new procedural engine constantly creates new gameplay possibilities.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Since its first Early Access release, Racecraft will offer a consistent single player gameplay allowing players to have an enjoyable and fun racing experience.
Planned core features from Early Access to the full release include, among many other things: single player career mode, multiplayer and eSports features, track sharing and asynchronous multiplayer, HTC Vive and Oculus VR support, a procedural track editor, a car parts crafting system, co-op and multi-role team gameplay.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is quite stable and polished with the single player core game features almost complete. It includes:
  • Procedural generation of tracks with different tortuosity and length
  • Cloud saving for tracks and lap records
  • Support for keyboard, gamepads and Thrustmaster and Logitech wheels
  • Race Mode vs. 100 progressive AI levels
  • HotLap Mode with Ghost or AI training
  • Weekly HotLap Events: race against your friends to obtain the best lap time!
  • Advanced Driving Menu: tune your car while you are driving without losing focus
  • Track Analysis Adaptive Control: controls adapt according to the track shape
  • Track Armory: Save your tracks and share them with friends
Because of the possibility to randomly generate endless new procedural tracks, there is enough for a great racing experience since the initial Early Access builds.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The Racecraft pricing will increase when the game will receive significant updates and new features. The lower Early Access price would support the community growth in order to get as much feedback as possible, alongside rewarding early Racecraft supporters with a discounted price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community involvement is crucial for a sandbox-themed racing game such as Racecraft. We started a dialogue with our Community since the private Alpha tests, we will listen to your feedbacks and suggestions on our Community hubs on Steam and Facebook and we’ll test each update before releasing it to the public with a selected team of players who will become our official QA team.”

About This Game

Racecraft is the new innovative racing experience by Vae Victis Games, a sandbox driving game based on PROCEDURAL technology. For the FIRST TIME ever, you can randomly generate an endless number of realistic racetracks and craft your car to reach the top in every race and eSports challenge.

With its original approach and innovative set of features, Racecraft aims to be a really fresh product in the racing games arena.

Racecraft: a Procedural Sandbox Racing Experience.

A proprietary procedural engine, called Camilla, generates an endless number of tracks. They can be saved and shared, producing lots of different racing situations. For the first time in racing games, the look and feel of the randomly generated tracks is really similar to the real-world circuits, Racecraft has a unique hard edge futuristic design that set it apart from all other racing titles.

Multiplayer and eSports Racing features

Challenge your friends in multiplayer races and hot lap parties or share your procedurally generated track and let them race against your ghost. Join the official Racecraft leagues or use our complete eSports toolset to easily create your own online racing leagues and live broadcast your events.

Sandbox Experience

Players can craft the car from scratch using and crafting all the various parts to generate lots of different sets of physical features and car setups. Players will also be able to craft their own tracks with a track editor using the same logics of the Camilla procedural engine. All events can also be defined by players: they can choose rules, tracks, cars and invite friends by sharing the event on Steam and Facebook.

VR support

Racecraft has been developed with VR in mind. The driving menu allows interaction with the cars during the races without losing focus. The entire game UI is usable without taking your hands off the wheel or joypad. This system is called SixInput, for steering wheel users, seats and/or a VR headset. The game also implements voice commands and a “virtual track engineer” who will help the driver improving his racing experience by talking about tracks, setup, strategy, race status, car status and so on.

Co-op and multi-roles

There will be different roles in the multiplayer mode of Racecraft. A team will be composed by several cooperative roles: driver, team manager, track engineer, mechanic, car designer and many others.
