R3E: Easter Sale kicks off today, 50% discount on all cars and tracks

Sector3 Studios have announced a big sale on its Raceroom Racing Experience content.


The sale will start today (April 2) at 18:00 CET and will end on April 5 at the same time. It looks like all cars, liveries and tracks are going to be at half price during these three days.

It's not clear if the discount is valid for Experiences as well, but that seems kind of unlikely, judging from the promotional image below.
Seems to be a pretty good deal anyway, especially if you have some spare Steam trading cards laying around - that'll mean you can buy spiffy new content for little to no money.

Apparently there's new content coming soon: the Cadillac CTS-V.R will probably be first, followed by the new Group 5 cars. There's no set release date for now, though.

Not sure what to grab here. Any suggestions?
I have DTM 2013, DTM 1992 and Mid-Ohio.

I was thinking of RUF RT12R GT2 and the BMW Z4 GT3 and probably another track - Sonoma, Indianapolis or Bathurst.

Trackwise i would suggest Bathurst. A must-have! Number two choice-Sonoma.

Carwise i would not take the GTR3 BMW Z4, not sure if it has the updated Physics. The ADAC 2013 and 2014 Versions have for sure.

Is it just me having connection issues? Connection via browser is taking forever with the odd '503 Service Unavailable' thrown in.

Can't play game either, will not connect to server?

@Andreas Scholz Yup, if you play a trading cards-enabled game, you'll earn those cards. They'll sit in the inventory and you can sell them for around 0.10EUR each, depending on the game.

Why are there shop servers so poor? You cant tell me there are hundreds of thousands of people buying their content when only less than 300 people are showing ingame on steam charts :O_o:
It just baffles me, surely this would put off potential customers.....

Well I earn VRP (ingame currency) through competitions and have so far only paid 35 EUR I think. And own all I want by now.
Come join the dark side @Bram

No seriously ? We are still talking about a serious sim racing game here right? :)
Always, but that's a good tip for every sim racer who happens to be a Steam user.

Some games have these Steam Trading Cars that drops while you're playing that specific game. You can sell these cars on Steam Market and use the money to purchase content on the Steam Store or on any other game that accepts Steam Wallet on transactions, like R3E. So yeah, still about racing =)

Me too mate. This happens too often and when it goes down you can't play the game at all, not even single player.

Don't want to spend that much in the game now. And I want to wait for the G5 complete pack! But thanks for the suggestions!

I wouldn't mind being able to buy the extra liveries but I don't see an easy way to add liveries for all the cars I might need them for. Is there a way to do that?

I had all of the content already except the additional liveries, I went ahead and picked all of those up during this sale. I don't like buying liveries but I'm still supporting this game so keep up the good work Sector 3.

Well, that seems to be part of that kind of business model that you can't make your own liveries but have to buy them at extra costs or get them with an pack or an experience ... :O_o:
