FIA European Truck Racing Championship coming to Switch
Bigben today announced FIA European Truck Racing Championship, the official racing simulation of the ETRC. N-Racing is developing the title using the KT Engine, a specialized game engine for creating racing simulations.
Here’s what we know thus far:
FIA European Truck Racing Championship promises a new experience for fans of racing games as well as the large number of trucking simulation fans. Taming an overpowered, 5-tonne monster is entirely different to driving a racing car or a motorcycle. It’s an unprecedented challenge that will require some racing game expertise.
In this game, an FIA ETRC race consists of 12 trucks on a circuit, facing off in four sprints of 45 km each, with special passing techniques, physics and inertia distinct from any other type of vehicle, special penalties, and a reservoir of 200 litres of water that must be managed manually to cool your brakes, avoid overheating, and finish the race.
For several years, the championship has grown quickly and draws a larger and larger crowd every year. The amazingly spectacular races have ignited a growing passion for the discipline, and the media gives it wide visibility. The confrontations between these mechanical behemoths takes place across the greatest circuits in Europe such as Le Mans, the Nürbürgring, Misano or the Hungaroring.
