Ooh, I'm liking this... A gaming company called iOpener is releasing a brand new beta version of an upcoming real-time racing game. RANDOM beta testers are being selected, and for the next four months, these testers will be able to go head to head against actual driving pros at Circuit Zolder in Belgium, in GT cars. I've never cared much for racing games, but I love the idea of racing against other people from around the world. Competition always adds a lot of fun to gaming, doesn't it? Nothing like showing off your gaming talents against random people from around the world! The first live racing event of the beta program begins next Thursday.
Beta release of iOpener Enabled SimBin game...
the world on pole position!
Vara/Aachen, 1 October 2009
The next generation of race gaming has started! As of today per continent randomly selected
beta testers have the opportunity to test the first ‘iOpener Enabled’ race game
RTR (Real-Time Racing) to its limits.
For the next four months 5,000 gamers will be racing from behind their own PC against real
professionals driving real powerful GT cars at Circuit Zolder in Belgium.
In the last months already over 11,000 enthusiastic gamers and race fans registered at www.real-timeracing.com
to have a chance to be the first to take on the challenge of racing against the professional race drivers during live
events, and based on stored data after the events.
The first live event during the four month beta period will take place on October 8, 2009.
The new immersive iOpener Enabled feature is based on iOpener’s patented technology providing highly accurate
positioning and telemetry data of the real cars, and specially developed iOpener software, which are injected in the game.
SimBin CEO, Henrik Roos, says: “We are excited to be the first to introduce the revolutionary iOpener Enabled feature
into a game and expose it to the racing world. RTR is a game which both sim racers as well as casual gamers will enjoy playing."
Andy Lürling, iOpener CEO adds: “We have great live events in the pipeline for the next months, which will bring a striking
experience to the beta testers. After years of preparation we are excited to receive the first feedback from the testers."
Although the beta period has started, people can still register at www.real-timeracing.com to have the chance to get a last
minute beta tester “wild card”. The RTR crew confirmed to appoint site visitors this honour on a daily basis.
On the RTR site, race and game fans will be updated on a daily basis about the progress of the beta
as well as the official release of the game.
