Auto Club Revolution, developer Eutechnyx's free-to-play online racing game and car community built in collaboration with the motor industry, is now giving PC gamers the BMW Experience.
Players can now customize their very own BMW 1 Series M Coupé which they can race on Victoria Harbour, a brand new in-game race track that has been specially designed and built in conjunction with BMW and designed to put the car through its paces.
"BMW has been an amazing partner to work with." said Doug Wolff, ACR Team Lead, of the partnership. "They've sent us cars when we've asked for them, they've provided us unparalleled access to their engineers and stuff."
Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Brand Communication BMW, seems just as pleased to be working with Eutechnyx.
"Our customers are tech-savvy and love to be able to put their dream car together the way they want," she exclaimed. "Auto Club Revolution allows us to make our models accessible to a large number of car enthusiasts. It was extremely important to us that our models be portrayed realistically."
Protraying high-performing BMWs wasn't easy for the development team, but thanks to some hands-on time with the vehicles they feel they pulled it off.
To reproduce the handling of the BMW 1 Series M Coupé in ACR 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," Wolff explained.
