Keep on truckin’
BigBen has announced a new racing sim titled FIA European Truck Racing Championship with n-Racing’s proprietary KT Engine which has been seen in the past in other racing sims such as WRC and V-Rally. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One this July.
This newly announced racing sim promises a new experience for racing fans. Driving a 5 ton monster is vastly different than a racing car or a motorcycle. It will require a special racing game expertise.
So how do races work in FIA European Truck Racing Championship? Each race will feature 12 trucks doing four sprints of 45 km each with special passing techniques, physics and inertia distinct from any other type of vehicle. The truck’s gas tank needs to be managed manually in order finish the race.
