New York, NY September 3, 2009 --
The Championships: RACE On faithfully recreates each event from the first warm-up lap to the finish line and invites players to compete in the world's most challenging races in the most desirable cars in the world.
Viva Media CEO Carlo Voelker commented,“The game’s spectacular attention to detail is unequaled in the world of car racing simulation games. It’s an amazing opportunity for fans of the sport to experience the thrill of a real race.”
In RACE On , PC players can race on the circuits in 29 meticulously reproduced vehicles that are available in over 450 designs. 27 variants of 21 racing tracks guarantee hours of unparalelled gaming fun. Glamorous raceways such as Laguna Seca and Road America feature on the impressive list of tracks. Drivers can compete against up to 25 AI drivers in the 17 different race classes, and can of course burn rubber against real players online! The new Dual Ghost mode offers players two ghost opponents to help improve both your own lap times and those of your opponent. A realistic physics engine and a dynamic weather system that can change during a race, provides a totally authentic race atmosphere. Compulsory pit stops add an extra tactical component to the already exhilarating gameplay experience.
