Sector3 Releases ADAC GT Masters and R3E Patch


Sector3 Studios has released a new update for RaceRoom Racing Experience, adding a variety of updates, including the long awaited singleplayer and multiplayer features. The sim now features improved Force Feedback, largely in part for improved track surfaces. This update also sees the release of the ADAC GT Masters content.

ADAC GT Masters features the 7 GT3 cars currently available in R3E, including the newly released Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3. The pack also features 6 circuits, including renovated circuits from DTM Experience. ADAC also features 24 new liveries for the sim, based off of the 2013 ADAC GT Masters season. The pack retails for 1133 vRP (around $13), which is an 85% savings over buying the content separately.

The sim includes a full featured singleplayer mode as well, which is also taken from DTM Experience. The Multiplayer Alpha has now been made available to all R3E players, so you can now race against your friends! To go with the release, new placeholder menus have been put in place, which Sector3 works on developing a web-based interface.

For the full list of what has been implemented in this massive update, you can check out the changelog below. Judging from what I’ve seen in the Steam community, this update has launched a very positive reception! If you haven’t given RaceRoom Racing Experience a try, what better time than now?
