What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Whilst there is a core experience that we will continue to deepen. We would like the game to evolve based on user feedback and suggestions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will remain in early access for 6 months to a year. If this is likely to change we will update the community via dev log updates.”

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

“During early access the game will continue to evolve, with updates to features, UI, AI, systems and an editor expected during the early access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The player will be able to choose a team and manage that team through multiple seasons across 16 tracks.

They will be able to improve their vehicle, contract staff, drivers and sponsors. Races can be spectated and influenced live, or a player can choose to simulate each race and focus on management only.”

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

“There are currently no plans to change the price.”

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

“During the playtest, we used discord for feedback and thanks to the community, we managed to fix some really hard-to-diagnose bugs, as well as make a number of improvements to the game. We will continue to collect feedback in this way and respond to it.”
