Built using the same simulation engine used in this year’s Ferrarri Challenge videogame, SuperCar Challenge is System 3’s and Eutechnyx team’s latest attempt to muscle in on the racing genre and prove that it has what it takes to compete with the big boys.
Forty supercars are on the roster, including the likes of the Lamborghini Murcielago RGT, the McLaren F1 and the Aston Martin DB9, plus a selection of Ferraris ripped from the game’s spiritual prequel. They’ll also be a familiar selection of tracks, including the challenging Nurbergring and the likes of Silverstone and Spa, with further tracks due to be announced in the coming months.
Like Ferrari Challenge, the main focus will be simulation, but they’ll also be an arcade mode for gamers keen to get straight into the action. The developer also claims that lessons have been learnt and they’ll be some notable improvements from its previous title. These include dynamic A.I. that will change the way other cars race to fit in with how well or poorly you’re doing in your career and a graphical makeover, as well as improved audio and of course the obligatory tweaks to car handling that will hopefully make for a smoother and more exciting race on the tracks.
Ferrari Challenge was somewhat overlooked, but did show great promise. Perhaps this time around, SuperCar Challenge will at least manage to make some sort of impact.
A release date has yet to be announced.
