OPEN BETA & PRICING DETAILS REVEALED FOR RACEROOM RACING EXPERIENCE

Lidköping, Sweden, Jan. 22 2013 - SimBin Studios AB and RaceRoom Entertainment AG have today announced an open beta for RaceRoom Racing Experience. With a planned launch next week where the store goes live, anyone can join the beta and begin to build the game of their dreams.

NEW VIDEO - NEW CONTENT

RaceRoom Racing Experience connects fans of racing around a game, motorsports portal, and online store combined and seamlessly built into one platform making it More Than a Game™.

Drivers begin their racing career in the portal and hit the track with plenty of free-to-play content. Shown in the  promotional video, five free cars will be available to registered users and with two free tracks available in six layouts, there’s no shortage of tarmac to race on. Additional cars, tracks, and game modes will be available for purchase in the store.

COMPETITIVE PRICING

RaceRoom Racing Experience uses a virtual currency called vRP (Virtual Race Points) which is tied to the Steam Wallet technology. vRP is then used to complete microtransactions which instantly unlock desired game content or features.

“We’ve established what we believe is an ethical, fair, and competitive pricing structure. Users will have the ability to choose high quality pieces of content which can be purchased to enhance their racing experience, however every user can enjoy an authentic and rich racing adventure and remain competitive without spending a dime.” - Chris Speed, COO - SimBin Studios AB

Individual car model prices range from 199 vRP to 329 vRP which is approximately 2 - 3,5 EUR. Tracks will generally be running from 349 vRP to 549 vRP or about 3,5 - 5,5 EUR. Tracks and cars will also be available from time to time in bundles. New game modes such as the Get Real package and Apex Hunt will be available for 99 vRP equaling 1 EUR.
