    Yet more racing images from Unreal 4 engine released by Simbin Studios following the recent GTR 3 reveal.

    On the off chance you've been living under a rock these past few days you may have missed our big GTR 3 reveal recently. Following the overwhelming positive reaction to that news, Simbin UK have released a few more mouth watering images from the new graphics engine to be used in GTR3.

    Again featuring the epic Spa circuit in Belgium, the latest batch of screens show us the Formula One venue playing host to a group of BMW GT3 cars in a variety of lighting conditions, showing off the power of the Unreal 4 graphics engine in shockingly beautiful detail.

    With the power of Unreal 4 behind the title, GTR 3 will be able to host a fully scalable time of day transition, giving the studio the opportunity to run proper 24 hour racing with the game simulating the visual differences as the sun drops below the horizon and night takes hold of the circuit. It sounds like an obvious thing to include in a racing game, but sadly all but a few current generation sim accommodate night time racing in the current crop of games. What's more, with Unreal Simbin will now be able to simulate a wide range of weather conditions, to a level previously impossible given the limitations of the technology on offer at the time.

    "Well with unreal we will have aquaplaning and water displacement that will affect the handling of the car. Its a great opportunity to move forward the wet weather implementation found in current racing games" said Studio Head Allan Speed.
    This could be big a big win for racing sims going forward and will go a long way towards bridging the realism gap present in a today's marketplace. With advanced weather and time of day conditions, new physics, artificial intelligence and damage model coupled with the usual Simbin quality found across it's back catalogue of games, early signs are GTR 3 could well be a big hit.

    If you missed our reveal article earlier, you can read it again here.

    If you want to know more about Simbin and GTR 3, or if you want to see what the latest developments with RaceRoom Racing Experience are going to be, stay tuned to RaceDepartment as we've got some interesting stuff coming up real soon....


    GTR 3 by Simbin Studios UK is expected to release during 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

    Looks great, looking forward to seeing more of this. Specially what licenses/series they get to work with/base it on. As pumped as I am for this I really hope we won't see another full series but not quite like R3E's GT Masters and let's not even get started with iRacings Blancpain license.

    I get it's all just placeholder and imported assets at the moment but I do find it a bit funny that a title coming out next year is showing a last generation GT car, awesome as it may be. :)

    First of all I want to say I'm excited to see more and more of GTR3 :)

    Now I want to be a little picky.
    These pics don't give the woow effect, I mean, something that feels "photorealistic".
    I hope for more shots.

    GTX 1070 is more than enough to run it so don't worry.

    Gonna be a dick and say the game looks quite crappy right now. Especially the last picture. Almost look like a FMV intro usually found on late 1990's PC games, something like this:



    But the potential is there. It's the Unreal 4 engine after all. You have to be hell bent on make it look bad. Very hard to not look good in the end.
