Atari's "RACE Pro" Announced (360)

Quote:
Atari Revs its Engines With the Ultra Realistic Racing Experience 'RACE Pro'

NEW YORK, July 11 -- Atari is revving it up with the announcement of the ultra realistic racing video game RACE Pro, scheduled to speed into stores this fall 2008 exclusively for the Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Developed by renowned award-winning game developer SimBin, a leading creator of PC racing simulators, RACE Pro brings SimBin's formidable skill and know-how to Xbox 360 for the very first time this fall.

RACE Pro recreates a breathtaking reality giving gamers the ultimate racing simulation experience, all powered by Lizard, SimBin's own physics engine. With precision physics and handling, racers will feel every bend and burst of acceleration along with every emotion from pre-race tension in the pit lanes to the exhilaration of capturing the checker flag. RACE Pro provides unrivalled realism and deep immersion into the racing world through ultra realistic car models and official FIA championships and tracks. Putting players in the driving seats of their simulated racing careers, racers will have the opportunity to work their way up the leader boards through intense training and winning key races. RACE Pro has something for everyone, allowing players of all levels to pick up and play, while offering challenging tracks and advanced modes for the more experienced players.

RACE Pro offers a wealth of cars ranging from 200 to over 1000 horse power, as well as a host of championships including WTCC (World Touring Car Championship), Formula 3000 and Formula BMW. GT cars from manufacturers including Aston Martin and Saleen take their place on the grid as well as production cars such as the Audi R8 and Dodge Viper SRT10. In addition, RACE Pro is exclusively bringing all the WTCC cars from manufacturers Alfa Romeo, BMW, Chevrolet and Seat to Xbox 360 for the very first time. For a blast of accessible fun, the Mini Cooper Challenge invites players of all abilities to take the wheel.

Gamers and racing fans alike will experience the thrill of racing these powerful cars on 13 real life tracks covering all continents, of whichMacau, Porto and Pau are exclusive to RACE Pro, and US tracks Laguna Seca and Road America are brand new to SimBin fans.

"With five years worth of experience under SimBin's belt, RACE Pro ensures a unique racing experience unlike anything seen before on console," said Cyril Voiron, VP Brand Management, Worldwide Publishing, Atari. "Nothing gets you closer to the ultimate racing sensation than RACE Pro and Atari is proud to add this product to our holiday line-up."

"Having personally taken the leap from 20 years of championship racing to racing simulation development, I am really excited for SimBin to be taking its own leap from PC to Xbox 360," said Henrik Roos, CEO, SimBin Studios AB. "We are proud to be taking this significant move with Atari, our trusted partner since our very first game."

Online play via Xbox LIVE(R) online entertainment network for Xbox 360 and System Link support lets up to 12 players take on equally high-powered opponents and test their skills to the limit to reach the finish line ahead of the pack. For friends closer to home, the brand new 'Hot Seat' feature puts players in the driving seat for a limited amount of time before passing the controller to the next player and so on, demanding exceptionally quick reactions and precision racing from even the most seasoned drivers.

Nothing gets closer than RACE Pro, the ultra real racing simulation game exclusive to Xbox 360, scheduled for release this fall 2008.

Same exact cars, and damn the textures are the same as the ones in Grid....


Havn't read anything on it yet, but physics? Customiseable cars? Accident Damage? The latter being the most important to me personally, why I love Grid so much.

Simbin != Codemasters in response to the first bit

Look up race 07 for what this game will probably be like. Think more simulator than arcade, shouldn't expect modification options but you should expect relatively detailed physics, detailed chassis/drivetrain setup, and a very detailed car wear/damage model. (rfactor engine, decent but not one of the 'great' sim engines) Although judging by what GTR2 was like it'll probably be dumbed down a bit to work with a console gamepad.

um, GT5 is ass.

it's slow, the way you have to unlock things is retarded, the interface is terrible and repetative. I hope the full game is seriously better than the prologue.

QFT...GT5 was the reason I bought a PS3 and now Prologue has me wondering if I'll even buy the full game.

None of you guys played or heard of RACE or RACE 07 for PC from SimBin?

GTR, GTR2, GT Legends?

Samd devs, they are just making a 360 game. So yes, this game will have more realistic physics than Forza/GT. SimBin games have some of the most realistic physics out there.

Right now it's Grid, if this one is better I'll be playing it.
