BMW M Racing Game [Auto Club Revolution] Debuts Featuring 1M, M3, M5, Z4 M

Auto Club Revolution: virtual driving pleasure with M automobiles.

24. April 12

Authentic driving pleasure is not just for the real world – as Auto Club Revolution (ACR), the new online racing game and car community for PC, demonstrates. Different BMW M models can be configured for driving according to personal preferences. The online game from British game developer Eutechnyx features e.g. the BMW 1 Series M Coupé, the BMW M3 Coupé, the BMW M5 and the BMW Z4 M Coupé.

All that is required to play the game is a PC with an internet connection.

As exclusive launch partner, BMW was involved in the development of the online racing game from the early stages. Auto Club Revolution is not just a classic racing game with real-world tracks and realistically-detailed models, but is also designed to become an established forum for racing fans, automobile manufacturers and car enthusiasts. Over the long term, this is designed to develop into a strong community, with links to BMW channels.

There is also be an exclusive “BMW Experience” for BMW fans: a specially-designed game experience which includes a specially designed race track, where players will be able to demonstrate their driving skill just with the BMW 1 Series M Coupé. Once they have successfully completed this BMW challenge, players can transfer the BMW 1 Series M Coupé to the main game for free, and set new track records by themselves or with friends:

The BMW Experience will go online on 24 April at http://bmw.autoclubrevolution.com

Auto Club Revolution is a free-to-play online racing game and car community built in collaboration with the motor industry. Featuring officially licensed cars from over 50 of the world’s leading motor manufacturers, it delivers a console quality racing experience to the free-to-play market while providing a social platform for owning, customising and enjoying cars online. The game’s front end is web-based, creating a powerful and flexible social platform for communities of car enthusiasts and racing fans to interact with each other and their favourite motoring brands.

The racing experience itself is delivered via a downloaded application (client), built on the world class Eutechnyx-owned racing engine. This combination of web and app. empowers the player to manage their game, garage and network of friends on the web from anywhere, while the downloadable element provides the premium quality race experience that separates Auto Club Revolution from all other games in the sector.

Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Brand Communication BMW, Marketing services BMW Group: “Our customers are tech-savvy and love to be able to put their dream car together the way they want. Auto Club Revolution has the possibility to make our models accessible to a large number of car enthusiasts. It was extremely important to us that our models be portrayed realistically. In Eutechnyx we found a partner who shares our highest quality standards.”

“It is always a real challenge to build a vehicle’s distinctive handling accurately in a game – generating the models from CAD data is just not enough. To reproduce the handling of the BMW 1 Series M Coupé in Auto Club Revolution in an authentic manner, we first took it out on the real racetrack. That is the only way to know exactly how the car corners, for example,” said Doug Wolff, Auto Club Revolution Team Lead.

Will certainly check this out when I get home from work. I wish there was some sort of an FAQ (unless I'm blind) on their page though regarding minimum requirements and racing wheel support.

Yeah ... Checking out the developers' track record dimished my enthusiasm significantly ...

Should be a good time killer. It's like 'M3 Challenge' that was released a few years ago. I guess it's allowing users to just have a bit of fun with the M cars and not supposed to be anything near Forza or GT.

What BMW really needs to do is partner with someone LIKE "EA" (don't really care for that company though) and create a BMW Unleashed game, similar to Porsche Unleashed (released in 2000) that still has to be my favorite racing game. For those who never played it, you basically start in the 40s or 50s and buy one of the original porsche's, and as you advanced through your career the time also advanced and new porsche's became available as they did in real life, you would use your winnings to upgrade your car, repair it and buy new ones, plus if you hung onto the original cars you bought, most of them went up in value and some went up a ton in value (as in real life). Never been a racing game like it since (only Porsche's in the game!), but I think one for BMWs would be pretty cool, maybe starting in the early 70s! BMW has made enough cars to fill the game, not just Ms, but regular versions as well, and race versions!

NFS Porsche Unleased was quite fun, except the annoying Porsche Test Driver challenges. My favourite career level was delivering a Boxster S as fast as possible with minimal damage.

If I were to make NFS BMW Unleased I'd start earlier. 1956 to be exact just for the BMW 507. Man is that car hot. Maybe go even earlier to the late 30s/early 40s for the BMW 327. I'd also add some BMW bikes to the mix to change things up a bit.
