The screenshots give a first impression of the current status of the game, which is being developed in the studios of racing software specialist Synetic.
World Racing 2 enhances the technology of the game’s fore-runner World Racing, which introduced an innovative 3D landscape technology and sophisticated driving physics. While World Racing focussed on the simulation aspect, World Racing 2 will put the fun of driving at centre stage and offer optimised arcade racing characteristics, rich and varied range of mission modes, lively scenarios, enhanced tuning options and a great variety of integrated cars.
The new screenshots already indicate some of the game’s improvements:
- Upgraded graphics engine
- Lively scenarios full of detail
- Improved shadows and light settings
- Higher level of detail for car models
- Added options to individualize the car designs
- New dust and dirt effects
World Racing 2 is currently scheduled to be released end of Q1 2005 for Xbox, PC and PlayStation2.
