Racing games have been a staple of the video game industry since the very beginning. Combining the love of cars with an interactive medium was a recipe for success, and games in the racing genre have continued to be successful through the years. While most racing games provide players with plenty of developer-created content and perhaps a simple track editor, there is a racing game that puts user-created content front and center: RaceLeague. Developed and published by Oversteer Studios, RaceLeague puts all the tools you’ll need to create excellent tracks for realistic, easy-to-learn races right in your hands. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, then here is everything you need to know about RaceLeague.
Create and Share
RaceLeague’s gameplay focuses on user-generated tracks that are created using the game’s suite of in-depth creation tools. Let loose your imagination and create the track of your dreams, and then share it with the RaceLeague community via the in-game track repository. This is where player creations from all over the world are uploaded for easy access and perusal. If you’re familiar with the track editor in games like Dirt 5, you’ll kind of have an idea of what you’re in for.
Realistic Racing Mechanics
Once you have either created your own track or downloaded another player’s creation, you’re ready to hit the track. This is where RaceLeague truly shines and its dedication to realistic racing takes over. Each car has its own unique weight distribution and handling ability, which makes each new car you try a brand new challenge rather than a skin swap. RaceLeague manages to balance its realism with accessibility for more casual players, but that doesn’t mean that every race will be a cakewalk. Good racers are differentiated from great racers by the amount of time and practice they put into the game. This is the only way you’ll know just the right time to pull into a pit stop to replace those realistically worn tires and fill up on gas.
Intensely Competitive Online Multiplayer
No racing game would be complete without a way for players to compare their skills to other racers around the world, and RaceLeague is no exception. Climb the dedicated online leaderboards and become the top dog of RaceLeague online. You can also participate in regularly scheduled events for extra notoriety. When the competition is stiff, RaceLeague’s advanced damage system comes into play.
Axles and frames bend and break, and the environment can be destroyed dynamically just as the vehicles are. Use your speed and skill to get out of trouble unless you want to become a smoldering chunk of twisted metal.
