Beta-test for mobile racer opens this month
From developer of Grid, F1 series
A new racing simulation is on the way to your phone soon. It comes from the developer that brought us Dirt, Grid, and the F1 series and the studio responsible for EVE Echoes and Super Mecha Champions, and Racing Master will enter beta testing later this month.
While the footage in the trailer goes beyond anything we’ve seen on Android or iOS before, the disclaimer says that it is in-game footage. Or at least some of it is. Racing Master will offer extensive customisation of vehicles including wheels, body kits, and even aerodynamic add-ons, and there will be multiple tracks based on cities around the world. The studio says that there will be different handling levels ranging from casual to simulations, while tilt and touch controls help drive the cars in competition with other players.
It uses the Unreal 4 engine and Codemasters Ego technology, with the game developed by NetEase Games in conjunction with Codemasters.
“As leaders in the racing category, we are excited to finally tell the world about Racing Master, the result of our strategic partnership with NetEase Games,” said Clive Moody, SVP Product Development at Codemasters. “NetEase Games shares the same passion and vision that’s needed to deliver a best-in-class racing experience. Taking the world’s most aspirational supercars, Racing Master is rooted in automotive culture and provides authentic wheel-to-wheel action for the mobile platform.”
Beta-test sign-up should be open for users later this month, NetEase said.
