Ever impressive Brazilian development team Reiza Studios have released version 0.9.4 of the Steam Early Access title Automobilista and with it brings a number of useful updates to the game. Notable enhancements include work on in-game shaders and lighting to bring about a more accurate and realistic feel to the many unique circuits. Work on improving particle display from dust and dirt kicked up by cars on track has been undertaken and could support better performance as well as stutter reduction for some users. Alongside today's game update Reiza have also confirmed a new detailed development roadmap currently being finalised. Keep an eye out on RaceDepartment for more details as and when they become available.

The in game DynHUD is still prone to freezing in Multiplayer when switching to race and saved multiplayer replays continue to present the appearance of floating cars when on track. Reiza advise they intend to address these issues in the next update, along with some other Multiplayer-related tasks.
