GamerMuscle R3E on Oculus Rift DK2

Published - 22 Sep 2014

A few days ago Betta Lines reviewed the early implementation of Oculus Rift support in RaceRoom Racing Experience. Now also GamerMuscle had a look at how the Sector3 title behaves using the virtual Reality headset.

GamerMuscle was most impressed with the games performance during the DK2 test and thinks it might be possible for people with more moderate systems to enjoy the game with VR gear.

As pointed out in a previous post, Oculus Rift users will have to add “-vr” to the Launch Options (under Properties in your Steam game list). Set your VR headset as your primary display, and select the 1920×1080@75Hz resolution.

RaceRoom Racing Experience – Sound like a Boss!

Published - 15 Sep 2014

Just after the newly formed Sector3 Studio released the latest update for RaceRoom Racing Experience, it seems that the free to play racing game is gaining interest and support of the community. Graphically the game is looking fine , and many users seem to enjoy the current physics.

However, the part where the game really shines is the audio. R3E is nothing more than breathtaking when it comes to in-game sounds. Both external and internal sound sets are top notch. Sounds have been the most underestimated part of a racing game in the last few years. The last few years most modern simulators did improve massively when it came to graphics, The sound, on the other hand has pretty much stayed the same for years. Sector3 Studios have raised the bar and recognized that the sound is a very important part of the overall immersion of a racer.

The internal R3E sounds are beautiful, but its the external sound-scape that raised the bar. 

No Simulator or Racing game out there comes close to the sound environment Sector3 have created for R3E. 

Davide744858 posted a video featuring the R3E BMW 134 Judd powered hill climb monster. This video is a good example of the superb audio that is featured in RaceRoom Racing Experience.
