Developed by N-Racing and published by Bigben Games, the first official FIA ETRC videogame will release on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch this July 18th - in just 16 days time.

Utilising the established KT engine and benefitting from an official licence for the popular European Truck Racing Championship governed by the FIA, the new game is an exciting and interesting project that looks to bring the series to a brand new audience of racing game fans.

Why dont they just give the license to Reiza? They would have better success with AMS 2 imo!

Ok for the console... but for PC the Truck category or DLC in Automobilista 2 are certainly better.

I don't wait this FIA game even if it have licences, i like more Euro Truck Simulator.

I dunno, kinda of look a bit too arcadey. Maybe the Forza 7 trucks are actually better, comparing racing games that aren't very serious.

It does look ok, but I always can not help but think Reiza Studios did this first!:D...hopefully AMS2 will have the Trucks also

It seems like excessive tire smoke to me.
Isnt it steam? Or atleast part of it
Its from the venting of the water coolers for the brakes I believe. Ideally you want to dispense the coolers under heavy braking load.

Or forget about it like I do, then have massively hot brakes and your engineer shouting at you to cool them :)

I have 2 reasons to be pessimistic (which are: graphics do not look modern and FIA licences sims are usually silly expensive games). I have infinitive number of reasons to be optimistic. We don't know how this title is gonna drive like. It might be good.

Team VVV have some videos on their channel and it looks surprisingly decent in them, certainly better than what they showed themselves. Not ultra hardcore sim, but not as arcady as it seemed either.

Well, fingers crossed I guess. It would bring something new(ish) to the sim racing table, but I can’t really be bothered with arcade titles - unless it’s Wreckfest - which is what I suspect this will be. Good luck to them though.
