The future of racing games?

Post by Guest on Mon 20 Jun 2011 - 16:18

Over at nogripracing forums I have been following a few threads by SMS (Slightly MAD Studios), one of which is a community funded / investment funded sim racer for multi platform.

Look where this has led so far!!!! OMFG ;O) These are graphics!! DX11 I believe....

Quote from Ian Bell, the head of development at SMS (Slightly Mad Studios)

"As of now, the plan is that the core game will be completely free to play, forever. You'll get a selection of cars and tracks for that and need never pay more. You can race online as much as you like and there won't be a subscription to pay and 'additional' cars and tracks etc are planned at the 1-2 dollars level. So, it won't be like iRacing at all, certainly not a clone aside from the fact they are both racing games."

From my understanding, they are a couple of months off the community investment model release!!!

I thought NetKar Pro followed essentially this model. That may be a small and incredibly niche game, but it's growing daily (just added weather), and has arguably the best tyre model of any sim. Check it out - it's under 15 Euros for the full thing, including any future updates, and there's a FREE TRIAL.
