As 2013 well and truly gets
Auto Club Revolution
kicks it off with a host of updates
An expansion has been made to the HUD (heads up display),which
now includes a car proximity radar, personal best laps times and an
improved navigation map. More updates have been made out on the
tracks; including a brand new 3D racing line, to act as the perfect
racing aid. Updates have been made to car friction and collision
physics, making impact with walls and other cars more realistic
and, finally, we have new updates to car handling mechanics to
enhance the thrill of the race.
Visual improvements to
Auto Club Revolution have also introduced a new robust
ghosting system to prevent griefing. Ghosting occurs when a player
tries to purposefully drive the wrong direction on a track or sit
static to cause collisions. When a player is ghosted, other drivers
will drive through the car without consequence.
Last but not least is the introduction of the 'VPR range', which
will make multiplayer race matchmaking much fairer. Players will
only be matched with other racers using a car with similar specs,
to make for better and more competitive racing.
As a bonus for competitive racers multiplayer races will now
show across all hangouts, allowing the player to race the entire
world from one position.

user experience, as well as challenge new and veteran players
