The first of our 3 Porsche releases of this winter: Porsche 934 Turbo RSR

The introduction of multiclass in single player modes through the AI Selector
Every patch, we have had the same question in the comments: "When will the AI Selector come?". Well this time we're glad to finally bring it to you!

Competitions and leaderboards will still offer the familiar “novice”, “amateur” and “get real” options, enforcing equality in such competitive environments.

  • Introducing additional assists : ESP and Countersteer assistance.

  • Further tweaks to Slowdown penalties
  • Added Look to Apex, Pitch camera lag and Roll camera lag sliders to options menu.
  • Reorganized the option menus for easier navigation.
  • Added a menu option to toggle the saving of replay files
  • Lowered default volume values for Roadfeel and Suspension Squeak sound effects
  • Cockpit camera now has some movement from G-forces by default.
  • Car selection menu no longer shows cars in order of their release dates but alphabetically.
  • Further improvements to serving of Slowdown penalties after all the great feedback from the last update.
  • In a Multiplayer session with “Wrecker Prevention” option enabled, a player sitting idle on the track without accelerating will be presented with a message asking “Are you still there?” and to press Throttle to confirm. Failure to comply will result in being brought back to the garage.
  • Reduced the distance at which the green flag is presented after passing a yellow flag incident.

“There's the accessibility, and the way it's just as satisfying to play on a cheap pad as it is on an expensive wheel set-up; how the handling is translated sublimely through both. And what handling it is, spread out across a delicious range of thoroughbred racing cars: there are the DTM cars, with their downforce and low-slung lines, that only seem one step removed from the hi-tech of F1, or their WTCC cousins that bounce over kerbs with the kiddish enthusiasm of a go-kart.”
EUROGAMER

“The sounds, the looks, the feel, it all comes together to form something that is simply a high quality product. Whether you play only the free content, or you buy it all, there is no question that this sim is worth the download.”
