Ever since the project kicked off early this year, Ian Bell and the Straight4 Studios team have pointed towards a December 2023 Early Access in WMD stage. Well, it is now December and those awaiting the development are none the wiser.

However, it does appear that GTRevival is getting close to a playable version. This morning, Ian Bell took to X to post a link to a short, unlisted YouTube video. The footage shows gameplay of GTRevival as “Physics Guru” Doug Arnao takes a Ferrari 296 GT3 for a spin around Interlagos.

GTRevival Early Gameplay Footage​

A two-minute long video shows the S4S team member pounding laps around the circuit. A simplistic way of capturing the footage, the video is simply comes from behind the driver’s shoulder.

Whilst tricky to make out the smallest details, one does get a good view of the Ferrari’s interior as well as the in-game hud.

In his post, Bell admits that everything from physics to graphics are in an early stage of development. Furthermore, he points out that plenty of work will be made to the title. Additions will include head movement physics, audio tweaks and a whole lot more.

With that in mind, the title does already seem to feature in-depth audio. In fact, one can make out chassis and suspension creaking in this GTRevival gameplay video, akin to something one might hear in Assetto Corsa. Elsewhere, the graphics do look to be among those of modern sim racing titles.

As far as content goes, neither the Ferrari nor Interlagos are confirmed as being content in the final release. However, Ian Bell has previously pointed out to us that GT3 cars help the team to develop a physics engine comparable to other titles, also featuring the class.

Motorsport gets my blood pumping more than anything else. Be it physical or virtual, I'm down to bang doors.


Guys on youtube channel already saying it looks incredible! XD!
It seems like a modern copy of Project Cars 2... let's hope at least the driving model is better and more simulative. The competition today is great. :unsure::unsure:
If this simulation is close to what was done years ago now, and takes all the technical evolutions of today (graphics engine / FFB / VR) it could be a simulation that will be in the top 3 ... I'm very excited but a little disappointed that we are shown a screen of this type ...
let's wait and see...
I'm not disappointed or nonplussed, I'm 'OK, that was a video of a guy using a driving game/sim'
The reality to my uneducated brain is that of the video left 'untitled' could have been any one of the current crop of game/sims that are shown on yootoob.
But, I still have great (no, in fact greater) hopes for this sim being a re-imagined version of what made/makes me me play GTR2 as I have for the past decade and a half.

Over late I've been playing (and enjoying) AC albeit 'historically' modified, some great cars but obviously nowhere near what I have on the old warhorse, GTR2.
