GamerMuscle Takes A First Look At Automobilista 2 (Beta)
Our favorite sim racing comedian GamerMuscle shares his first (Beta) impressions of the upcoming Automobilista 2 racing title by Reiza Studios. On the bottom of this post, you will find a video in which GamerMuscle checks out the VR implementation of AMS2 (Keep in mind that all the footage is representing an early access version of the upcoming title.)
Two days ago, Reiza Studios released a Beta/Early Access version of the Automobilista 2 racing simulator exclusively for people who backed the AMS2 Crowdfunding Campaign.
Back in May 2019, the Brazilian Reiza Studios officially announced the follow-up of the popular Automobilista racing simulator which was scheduled for a December 2019 release, and later on delayed to March 2020. The new title will once more focus on the Brazilian motorsports scene, featuring all major Brazilian racing series, circuits, and car manufacturers. As with its predecessor, Automobilista 2 will also feature more international flavored content.
In contrast with its predecessor, the new Automobilista 2 title is not powered by the ISI gMotor2 rFactor 2 engine but makes use of the immensely powerful MADNESS graphics engine by Slightly Mad Studios, who initially developed their in-house engine to develop the Project CARS franchise games. Without a doubt a good choice by Reiza, as it instantly ensures gorgeous visuals, featuring advanced features such as Day to Night transitions, Dynamic weather, Advance track physics, Director/Broadcasting functionality, and outstanding VR support right out of the box.
In combination with the Force Feedback expertise of the Reiza Studios development team, we were pretty sure that all of this goodness would result in an awesome racing simulation.
While initial Early Access backers can already have a taste of the Beta version, the rest of us will have to wait until March 31st when the first official version of Automobilista 2 will be released to the public.
At release, you will find the Automobilista 2 title for sale at the dedicated Steam page.
Automobilista 2 is the culmination of a project developed over the course of nearly a decade. At its core, it is a comprehensive simulation of the brazilian motorsports scene, featuring all major brazilian racing series, race tracks and manufacturers.
Automobilista 2 will also celebrate Brazilian motorsports heritage by featuring some of the country´s most iconic heroes and achievements through its rich history in the sport.
Packing an even larger roster of diverse cars and tracks than its predecessor, Automobilista 2 will venture further into the best of international motorsports, including prestigious brands such as Mclaren and BMW along with iconic venues such as Brands Hatch and Imola, at the same time continuing to explore the more exotic and exciting forms of motorsports from around the world.
Boosted by a new technical partnership with the developers of the award-winning Project CARS series, Automobilista 2 is built on the MADNESS engine, providing incredible graphical quality, the most advanced dynamic weather and track condition systems in a racing simulator and superior VR support, to deliver a substantial realism upgrade and a fully immersive visual experience.
With Automobilista 2 we aim to combine the strengths that made its predecessor unique with major evolutions in all areas. The sim will offer some exclusive features for both single player and multiplayer, which we look forward to sharing over the remaining months of development!
