A few weeks ago, RaceRoom Racing Experience announced that going forward, it would follow a bi-quarterly content release plan. At the beginning of each yearly quarter, fans of the free-to-play title can expect large pack releases. Mid-quarter updates will feature smaller single-car unveilings.
Today, the game gets a mid-quarterly update and content drop. A selection of improvements to force feedback and balance of performance updates to the GT3 class feature. But what is sure to excite fans the most is the release of the all-new BMW M4 GT3 car.
Included in the latest update for RaceRoom Racing Experience are a variety of improvements to the GT3 class. Balance of performance tweaks will be of great relief to online racers. In fact, equality in car performance is usually the topic that gets sim racers riled up the most.
Elsewhere, updates to force feedback will reportedly help cars feel grounded and solid at slower speeds. Whilst RaceRoom is known for its industry-leading force feedback, every hero has its weakness and it’s this low-speed road contact feeling that has been lacking in the simulator’s past.
BMW M4 GT3 in RaceRoom
RaceRoom announced the BMW M4 GT3’s release a few weeks ago. So its arrival in the game is certainly no surprise. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not a welcome addition to the fray of GT3 racers.
When it comes to the newest generation of GT3 challengers in RaceRoom Racing Experience, the BMW M4 GT3 joins a good selection of cars. But having entered competition in 2021, it is now the newest model in-class in the game. It sits alongside models such as the 2020 Audi R6 GT3 Evo and 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo.
In the real world, the M4 GT3 has already achieved plenty of success. Last month, it claimed victory at the opening round of the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup at Monza. Furthermore, just this week, it took home the second place trophy at the Nürburgring 24 Hours.
Whilst both of these recent achievements were accomplished in Rowe Racing colours, it is a different livery that fans will recognise most. The #46 car run by famous Belgian squad WRT is an icon in itself thanks to one particular driver: Valentino Rossi. Fans will be happy to know this legendary design is present in the game.
One can pick up the BMW M4 GT3 in RaceRoom for €4.98. It also comes as part of the full GTR3 car pack costing a total of €29.93 for 23 cars and 378 liveries.
Whilst GT3 racing is becoming overly-saturated in sim racing nowadays, it’s still something game developers cannot afford to miss out on. As RaceRoom typically delivers when it comes to a car’s feeling and a satisfying driving experience, it will be interesting to see how this model ranks against its iRacing and ACC equivalents.
