This is the most important question for me for this game but also for the other upcoming BTCC, NASCAR and Le Mans titles: are dedicated servers supported for PC communities?

I am mostly an online player and I have patiently waited 10 years for dedicated server support for the Codemasters F1 series and it never came. Seeing there is some spill over coming from Codemasters to Motorsport Games I hope this trend of peer to peer hosting will not continue for the sake of the great PC community. I understand it for consoles but PC really needs proper dedicated server support.

Nah, but the trend in gaming seems to be less and less dedicated servers overall, does it not? One could hope for rF2 netcode and dedi-servers though. There is still no game I feel so safe in rubbing and bump-drafting as in rF2.
 
Just watched the latest dev diary the team have done and Nascar 21 isnt running on the rF2 engine like everyone thought it would. Its actually running on the Unreal Engine

They were never going to use the rF2 graphics engine (thank lord), just the physics engine.

They are basically doing what Kunos did with ACC. Unreal for graphics, and an in-house physics engine for the driving.
 
I don't think they'll be able to. The minimum requirements are pretty high and in NASCAR you have big grids so expect very high cpu usage and decently high GPU usage
They also bought Black Delta who managed to release a game (KartKraft) that runs quite well on UE4.
 
I don't know man. The system requirements on the steam page are quite high. I dont think this game will run well unless you have a really good PC
Well I have both and on my systems it runs better than ACC, especially in VR. Of course, it won't run well on a 5-year old machine.

Yeah I have ACC too and it runs great but ACC and KartKraft both have low system requirements on the steam page. This game has high system requirements
 
There a appear to be many problems with this game. Not all popular wheels supported and many other problems. Was looking forward to this. Not so sure now

I had pre-ordered it on Steam and played it for 45min more or less. It has masses of bugs and you can not even use the buttons on your steering wheel, which means driver camera, look right and left and back and also the menu control is all via the keyboard.
You can't drive yourself out of the pits either, but you find yourself driving on the track right away, which might not be so bad if my car hadn't had damage almost every time.
That's why it only took me 45min to give up on this game and request a refund on Steam. My conclusion is that it is unfortunately the worst racing game of the last few years at this point, they don't get a handle on that so quickly!
