    Studio 397 have confirmed the lovely Porsche 911 GT3 R will be arriving in rFactor 2 very soon indeed.


    Set to be added to the simulation as part of the long term licencing deal with the Porsche brand that has already seen the 911 GTE join rF2's growing endurance racing content ranks, Studio 397 took to social media earlier today to confirm the epic 911 GT3 R is already well into development, and should be added to the title in the very near future.

    Very much just a teaser image and brief text at this stage, no details on either exact release date or pricing have been confirmed by Studio 397, nor if the 911 GT3 R will form part of a wider content release, but one thing is for sure - it is again reassuring to see Studio 397 working hard to release new and exciting content to what is most certainly one of the most rapidly improving racing simulations available today.

    Alongside the teaser image reveal, Studio 397 also suggested that the next build update to rFactor 2 looks set to include the much anticipated new shader technology, hopefully helping the title to continue to improve the increasing visual fidelity that has been brought to the simulation over recent updates.

    rFactor 2 is available exclusively for PC from Steam now.

    Hell yes, I was kinda sad that they didn't bring it with the GT3 pack and thought it wouldn't make it to the game anymore but there we go!

    New shaders already? That's a lot quicker than I had anticipated.

    Shaders sound great. Car is a favorite.

    Please...please...please...for the love of all that is sacred in simracing...please make the ffb of this car decent. The ffb in some of the cars in the gt3 pack was appalling. The merc in particular is the worst modeled gt3 car in all of sim racing.

    Really looking forward to the new shader. Though the GT3R surely is a great addition, I personally would have preferred a GTE rather than another GT3.

    Ooooh yes, Acura NSX GT3 would be very exciting. The Audi and Lambo would be welcome too of course but the Acura is pretty fresh and unless I'm mistaken not widely available in other sims.

    As always happy to see more new content coming down the pipeline. I'll buy the Porsche GT3 and hope that maybe there's a new "pack" to accompany it.

    I am already liking the look and performance increase of rF2 at the moment with a new GPU installed...now it's going to look even better with the new shader technology and to top that off a new car is going to be released 'soon'...absolutely looking forward to this.

    This sounds great

    Will all the other “official” cars for rF2 also have their shaders upgraded at the same time? Was thinking it would otherwise be a bit of a visual standout car in a race.
