rFactor 2 – First McLaren 650s GT3 In-game Screenshots
In their July Roadmap Update, STUDIO 397 announced that they were working on an rFactor 2 McLaren 650s GT3 model that will be used in McLaren’s World’s Fastest Gamer competition. The model will be released to the public as part of a soon-to-be-announced paid DLC content pack. STUDIO 397 now published the first in-game screenshots of the McLaren 650s GT3 on track. We will keep you posted when more info becomes available.
Up until now, all the add-ons for the core rF2 racing simulator have been released as free content. While some of the rFactor 2 community members seem to be slightly skeptical about the implementation of a paid content business model, we are sure that it will be beneficial to both the developer and the users as this new revenue source can help secure the future of rFactor 2.
