    Sector3 Studios have revealed a new set of preview images from the upcoming WTCR 2018 DLC for RaceRoom Racing Experience... welcome the lovely Cupra TCR...


    Confirmed to be coming to RaceRoom Racing Experience as part of the next build update for the simulation, the 2018 FIA WTCR set of cars will be the first inclusion of TCR machinery to the title and marks a continuation of the long standing relationship between RaceRoom / Sector3 / SimBin and Eurosport events, starting all the way back with the legendary Race videogame and more recently with the 2013, 14, 15, 16 and 2017 seasons of the FIA World Touring Car Championship in R3E.

    Expected to contain all the cars and teams of from the current season of rebranded FIA WTCR, the new pack doesn't yet have an official launch date, although in traditional Sector3 style I'm sure we can expect it... soon... !

    Check out the previews from the upcoming Cupra below:

    I wish R3E would finish the core game first instead of releasing one DLC after another. I started in 2013 and have already spent 100+€ and still playing a beta...

    Yea its shocking that a free game would need to charge us anything for extra content. You would think the developers would just work for free. Crazy world we live when someone wants to be compensated for their work and when car manufacturer charges them for their car licenses and use of likeness and expect us to pay the bill.

    You can buy all content for less than Pcars 1 and 2 cost and they are still developing RR, new graphics engine coming, new UI and competitive system in a game are still coming. I guess by your comments you think all should be free or they just shouldn't add anything new so you don't feel left out when you can't afford? Work on having some perspective going forward. If you don't have the money then just get what you need. Maybe get AC or rf2 so you can get as much free content as you want from modders. Just because you can't afford a DLC or VR doesn't mean they don't have value or they are gimmick. You don't have to badmouth things just because you can't have them, it shows poor character. Having respect and value for others work and jobs will take you alot further than complaining and bad mouthing in every other post.

    First and only warning.
    The thread is about upcoming content for RaceRoom, not about price or the business model, since previous threads about dlc get hijacked about those this one doesn't need to repeat the points.

    The game is meant to be modular and constantly changing. Not unlike iRacing and, possibly, ACC. These sort of games that are considered done, tend to be left out to dry. Look at the F1 series.

    Yay! TCR is currently used in STCC, so now I can play STCC-cars on STCC-tracks again for the first time since Race07! The Cupra is even used by the best team in STCC right now, PWR Racing. Really hope they bring the rest, including the mean-looking VW[​IMG]

    Great news! I've been waiting for this release for a long time. The touring cars and GT cars are what Simbin/Sector 3 excels at. I think they should concentrate on these types of cars and not bother with single seaters, which they don't seem to have a feel for.

    Insta-buy for me too.
    Best sim for offline championships IMO, just getting better. With so many good quality sims out there and to come, it's a great time to be a sim racer. And for those who don't know, buy RRRE content with vRP not the dlc through Steam.

    So how's the weather down there? I played raceroom I think more than a year ago, but only the free contents. The free contents are meh, also the free racers. Anyways, regardless of graphics, physics, FFB, and pricing... How's the racing there? At any given time, how many racers are there online?

    FWD.....Meh. :D
    I'll still end up buying it at some point, but this is one that can wait for a sale.

    Might be the free content meh he disagrees with.
    Then again, could just be a fat-finger-small-phone thing. :)
