World Racing 2 - First PC and Xbox Screenshots available

6th October 2004. TDK Mediactive today released the very first screenshots taken from the PC and Xbox version of the upcoming racing game World Racing 2. The screenshots give a first impression of the current status of the game, which is being developed in the studios of racing software specialist Synetic.

World Racing 2 enhances the technology of the game's fore-runner World Racing, which introduced an innovative 3D landscape technology and sophisticated driving physics. While World Racing focussed on the simulation aspect, World Racing 2 will put the fun of driving at centre stage and offer optimised arcade racing characteristics, rich and varied range of mission modes, lively scenarios, enhanced tuning options and a great variety of cars.

The new screenshots already indicate some of the game's improvements:

  • Upgraded graphics engine
  • Lively scenarios full of detail
  • Improved shadows and light settings
  • Higher level of detail for car models
  • Added options to individualize the car designs (car body vinyls, wheels?)
  • New dust and dirt effects

World Racing 2 is currently scheduled to be released end of Q1 2005 for Xbox, PC and PlayStation2.
