rFactor2 – FIA Formula Two partnership

rFactor 2 Formula Two partnershipISI e FIA hanno annunciato la partnership che lega il campionato FIA Formula Two con rFactor2

“We’ve spent many hours working with ISI to ensure we recreate the highly sophisticated and new-spec F2 car with the utmost accuracy, right down to the physics and the engine note,” said Goodfield. “We’re very pleased with the results and feel confident it will provide professional racing drivers, as well as amateurs, with a simulation as close to the real thing as possible.”

Saranno disponibili tutte le vetture ufficiali del campionato, mentre non si parla di rilascio dei circuiti in via ufficiale da parte di ISI, che si affideranno a quanto già disponibile e a quanto verrà creato in seguito in ambito modding.

Da segnalare inoltre l’uscita recente della build 85, altro piccolo passo in avanti in quel processo di sviluppo “a passo lento” che contraddistingue l’atteso seguito di rFactor. Qualche piccolo progresso dal punto di vista grafico si può notare in questo video a Mid Ohio, splendido circuito creato dai Virtua LM che mostrava un’alta qualità già nella sua versione per il primo rFactor:
