Automobilista V1.0 Released

Reiza Studios has officially released Automobilista V1.0. and therefore ending the titles early access.

Automobilista continues where its predecessor left off, by adding all the new cars & tracks that were proposed in the SimRacing Bonanza crowdfunding campaign. The racing simulator also features dynamic track conditions, advanced transmission and tire modeling, substantial upgrades to physics, graphics & audio, new game modes and much more.

While this is the end of the early access format, Reiza Studios already explained that Automobilista will be a long-term project and that they will continue updating the title with new content, features, and improvements. We also expect to see the first DLC packages released in the coming weeks.

The full version of the Automobilista racing simulator brings you some new classic vehicle content in the form of the  F-Vintage 1967 & 1969 Grand Prix cars. Furthermore, Reiza Studios also added some brand new layouts to the Mendig, Buenos Aires, Kansai, and VIR tracks. As with every update, the core game update also features a big list of fixes and improvements. (Check out the full changelog below.)
