Ever since the beginning of the year, the newly created Straight4 Studios team has been firmly in the spotlight. Promising a game perfect for motorsport fans, GTRevival is rapidly approaching with WMD early access kicking off as early as this winter.

In recent weeks, more and more details have emerged about the upcoming sim concerning both features the team is aiming to include and content featuring at launch. Over the weekend, the company’s CEO Ian Bell took to the page formerly known as Twitter to playfully announce a pair of tracks bound for the sim.

Lime Rock Park, Sebring Coming to GTRevival​

Indeed, utilising his showman persona, Bell teased fans with a selection of word games akin to crossword hints. Mentioning that he was announcing two new tracks for the game, he allowed his followers to guess at what circuits are coming. Those that guessed correctly will receive the early access version of GTRevival for free.


For the first circuit, Bell offered the original hint, “A four-time champion’s adornment.” With seemingly no-one catching on, the clues became somewhat easier starting out with, “F1 driver’s nickname, jewellery.” Finally, the game concluded when the final clue, “Multi-21 finish, finger band” gave it all away. ‘Seb’ from Sebastian Vettel and ‘Ring’ confirms Sebring to join Interlagos in GTRevival.


Next up, it seems the developer’s followers woke up for the second circuit. Indeed, just one hint sufficed for a trio of fans to guess correctly. “Makrut mineral” lead Infinity848 on X to immediately guess Lime Rock Park.

So there you have it. It seems GTRevival will see the Americas well-represented with Sebring, Lime Rock Park and Interlagos kicking off the track list. So far, we have seen the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II in screenshots, though Bell has confirmed it will not feature in the game. However, the Lister Storm GT1 was announced last week whilst Group C machinery also features in a number of screenshots.

... and VR?
Exactly this. Still no word on VR. Without proper VR the title is useless to me.

And is every track now getting a newspost? Don't get me wrong, it are two great tracks. But if the game is going to have 25 tracks for example and 40 cars then we can expect a lot of news posts. Maybe it's an idea to ask him for the full track and car list at once? Instead of this 1 by 1 update. Doesn't make much sense to me.

a steady drip, drip, by S4 keeps them in the public eye longer than one flash flood release.

True, I know IAN's strategy. He's smart, this was always his strategy.

I'm only suggesting that racedepartment/overtake or whatever this site exactly is now doesn't bite. They should ask him straight what his plans are otherwise he can use their platform by indeed dripping every detail again and again and gaining free news coverage/advertising every single time.
 
can one of you please post that pic with the M8 GTE car on Lime Rock in bigger/better quality? when i go to the links its a blank, probably because i dont have twitter lmao

I get that the usual Ian Bell related news always turns into a mess, but you should also consider the fact this news article was based on Ian's twitter riddles and not an actual announcement. Theres not really a topic to follow...
I don't disagree with either you or gamma123152, but I just don't want yet another discussion derailed by the usual anti IB rants.
I think you'd agree that it doesn't take much to trigger that.
Plus these are two of my favourite US tracks.

So what's the issue with that, isn't Microsoft/Forza (drip feeding as you put it) their track list as well.

I think his issue is more with RD posting multiple news articles?

Ian posting about single cars and tracks could just be about licensing, acquiring them one by one, and taking it to X to announce them.

I for one much prefer the volume of news we are getting here, instead of a dry front page.

But the members here don’t know what they want, always a problem.
 

Sounds like its another ACC on the cards if they are struggling, guessing VR is a secondary project on this game, which is understandable due to VR user numbers.

I hope they aren't struggling with getting it running on a 4090, but i bet thats the case.

Saying that i actually like playing ACC on my 50 inch Bravia which is right in front of my wheel, it makes a nice change to the intensity of VR with AMS2 and the like.

Either way i reckon this title will be super polished and fun to play.
