Auto Club Revolution, a free to play PC racing title developed
and published by Eutechnyx, has announced the addition of the
iconic British racing track, Brands Hatch.
Referred to as “the best circuit in the world” by
Formula 1 legend Gerhard Berger, Brands Hatch is the first track to
be included in Auto Club Revolution which has been reproduced using
laser scanning technology. Laser scanning entails a greater depth
of data to be recorded, analysed and recreated. Building on
traditional forms of data collating, including CAD, satellite and
telemetry data, laser scanning uses an advanced mapping system that
creates a highly detailed, high resolution point cloud. This point
cloud helps the 3D modelling team to pin point track height and
depths but also the racing environment, showing the exact
positions, depths and angles of curbs, paint, trees barrier and
fences. This extra level of detail allows for a true recreation of
the track, making it 100% accurate.
“We are delighted to add the iconic and
challenging Brands Hatch to our section of licensed tracks in
Auto Club Revolution,” commented Mark Barton, Creative
Manager at Eutechnyx. “By using laser scanning technology we
have been able to add a much greater level of detail to the track,
giving our fans as realistic an experience as possible through a
Auto Club Revolution will feature 2 routes around Brands Hatch,
with both the Grand Prix and Indy routes being open for racing from
launch. This starts a campaign of regular updates for the game over
the coming weeks and months, with additional cars and further
tracks due for release.
