7. August 2012, London, UK. As part of a series of regular content updates, the Auto Club Revolution team today released more innovative features into its online racing game and car community Auto Club Revolution where car ownership and social interactivity are key reasons to play.
Just like in the real world, from today players of Auto Club Revolution can choose to buy or, for the first time, rent cars that they’ve always dreamed of racing. Players can choose from a selection of cars from the entire Auto Club Revolution showroom and provides the option for players to rent for one, three or five days. The available models will be changed regularly allowing players to sample the widest possible range of the fully licensed cars available throughout the game.
To celebrate the launch of car rentals, the team has added a new social feature designed to allow players to challenge their friends in lap time competitions on any of the officially licensed or custom race tracks in Auto Club Revolution. This feature is the first asynchronous lap time competition and gives players the chance to set lap times on a track and then challenge a friend to beat it, but at a time of their convenience.
Executive producer Christoph Vietzke said, “Both the new features we’ve announced today are in response to player feedback and we’re striving to continue to bring features requested by our communities. Car rentals is a major new feature as it allows players to sample cars before they buy.”
He continued, “The addition of a turn-based challenging system broadens the appeal of Auto Club Revolution and makes it even more accessible to communities of friends”.
Players can register and play for free at http://www.autoclubrevolution.com to try any of the new features and cars available.
