RaceLeague, which promises to bring realistic racing behaviour to a more casual crowd, announced the public release date for their early access today. One month from now, on the 26th of July 2022 is when the indie game will hit the digital storefront Steam.
But What is RaceLeague?RaceLeague is an indie racing video game focussing on user-created tracks and multiplayer.
Its main selling points are
- An included and easy-to-use track creator as well as a seamless track-sharing solution
- Realistic racing gameplay for a more casual crowd
- Sophisticated damage model
- Dynamic and destructible environment
- Tyre wear, fuel consumption and pit stops
How Capable will RaceLeague be for Sim Racing?Let's get one thing out of the way, though, RaceLeague does not claim to be a new sim. This game, developed by a single Finn, is aimed at a more casual crowd.
That said, tuning your setups for cars will be possible. The extent of this is quite simple. Also, wheels will be supported, however, force feedback is only said to be implemented "if feasible".
Furthermore, a whole damage model is planned including suspension, aero and engine damage. The online leaderboards and multiplayer modes, however, allow for the kick of adrenaline and competition that is needed.
The Market for RaceLeagueAltogether, RaceLeague is looking to be a fun distraction for sim racers but most importantly a comparatively realistic racing game for gamers and casual racers.
Creative individuals will find their calling with an easy-to-use track creator as well as the capability to upload custom skins for their vehicles.
RaceLeague Early Access will release on Steam on July 26th, 2022.
