One of the most important -but not immediately apparent- components to a good racing game is the physics engine. Without it, cars are left to bounce off each other and the environment like a pinball machine (see every 90’s arcade racing game ever). The developers behind Auto Club Revolution recognize this and have spent time ensuring the game’s latest update gives players a much more realistic and thrilling race experience.

The update includes loads of tweaks to how car friction, handling and collision physics work. This means your adventures speeding into guardrails at over 120MPH just got a little more exciting. Visual improves have also been introduced through a new robust ghosting system to prevent griefing. Nothing can be more irritating then barreling down the track only to collide with a player who chooses to drive backwards. With the new ghost system players who purposefully drive the wrong direction or sit static to cause collisions will have their collision properties removed, allowing for other cars to drive through them without consequence. UI improvements along with matchmaking changes are also on the list of updates and should provide players with more detailed information while driving and competitive races.

This update is just one of several upcoming updates designed to enhance the current user experience, as well as challenge newbies and veterans alike. You can find out more update details by visiting the official site here. What’s your favorite racing game of all time? Let us know!

  1. …was pumped about this game, except now when i try to launch a race I get ‘unable to initialise direct3d device’ … all my other games run fine … smh

  2. I would suggest everybody not to play it! I tested it in beta and as many other I rage quitted, the game is purely pay2win as you can only get better cars with real money, there is a second currency tho but at the time, you couldn`t buy anything with it, maybe some parts or some shit…

    I`m not going to waste my time on this, they lost a ton of people and they have shown it on their forums that they simply don`t care.

    If anyone comes to say they changed for the better I might take a look at it, if not, BURN IN HELL ACR!

  3. I’ll try this game when I get bored of everything else. Right now I am playing War Thunder, Warframe, Tera and Path of Exile mainly so it won’t be anytime soon.

  4. “The January update”
