Vae Victis has announced that Victory: The Age of Racing Beta 2 – Patch 9, is now live. This is a major update and takes the first steps of offering gamers an intense racing experience with the thrill of being in the driving seat of a formula racing-machine.
Beta 2 – Patch 9 includes:
- New Game Launcher:
With integrated HTML browser that will show players the latest news and useful links to the community and the official website.
- Updated Main Screen:
Hosting new features and future game modes.
- New Research & Development Screen:
You can now change the performance of your car in the new Research & Development screen, where you can freely allocate Performance Points (PPs) to the different car attributes. Each of your cars will unlock 3 PPs per player level. You can buy new engines and tires that will directly affect your car performances. A new Car Statistics table will show you how the different PP allocation, engines and tires affect your car performance.
- Wonder Points:
With the new car development system all the items in the market will give you WPs (Wonder Points). The more WPs you have, the more Rx (Race Experience) you receive after each race: the more Wonder Points on your car the faster you can level up. Also, new events and other new features will require your car to have a certain amount of Wonder to be eligible.
- Updated Marketplace:
With brand new filter icons to better navigate the different item categories. Also, a new cyan color icon will highlight all the newly unlocked items, so you always know what new stuff is in the market for you since you last leveled up.
- Race Points:
Your driver accumulates RP by racing in multiplayer races and events. After each race you will now receive Race Points, Race Experience and Gears Credits. Victory now uses Race Points instead of Race Experience on rankings and events that rank the different drivers. Race Points are not influenced by Premium Accounts bonuses like Race Experience:
Victory will never allow premium users to have a direct advantage over non-paying users.
- Other Minor Features and Changes:
• Victory calculates the Race Experience given after each race based on the duration (in laps) of that race
• Default Laps when creating a new Race Server are now 3 instead of 2
• World Record Achievements are now unlocked only in the “Hot Lap” mode
• Some old achievements bugs have been fixed
- Premium Accounts and Victis Gold introduction:
During Beta 2 it’s now possible to buy Premium Account days that will enable
– +50% Rx Bonus after each race
– +30% Gears Credits Bonus after each race
– 20% discount on all Market prices
