GT3 Power Pack Release

Today we proudly present the release of the GT3 Power Pack, featuring five iconic GT3 class cars. You already knew about the McLaren 650S GT3, and at the SimExpo we revealed the second car–the Bentley Continental GT3. Recently, we shared some teaser shots of the third car. As some of you already guessed, that was the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R. The last two are the Radical RXC Turbo GT3 and the Mercedes AMG GT3. We’ve worked closely with the manufacturers to create the most accurate model, physics and sound we could; and we’ve listened to the community asking us to come up with a more consistent series of cars to race with. We certainly hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.

About This Game

Summary


rFactor 2 is a realistic, easily extendable racing simulation from Studio 397. It offers the latest in vehicle and race customization, great graphics, outstanding multiplayer and the height of racing realism. rFactor 2 features mixed class road racing with ultra realistic dynamics, an immersive sound environment and stunning graphics.

You can race against a field of AI cars, or in multi-player mode against others. The simulation supports a full day-night cycle as well as dynamically varying weather conditions such as rain. Tracks feature "real-road" technology that changes the grip as more cars drive on it. You can run full 24 hour endurance events and in multi-player mode, driver swaps are also supported. Everything can be customized by the community, including adding new tracks and cars, and a wealth of add-ons are available on-line.

rFactor 2 is also an evolving product, which will be updated and added to for many years, so the list of features will expand!
