Bigben has just announced FIA Truck Racing Championship, the official racing simulation of the ETRC, developed using the KT Engine, a specialized game engine for creating racing simulations (WRC, TT Isle of Man, V-Rally).
FIA Truck Racing Championship promises a new experience for fans of racing games, as well as the large number of trucking simulation fans. Taming an overpowered, 5-ton monster is entirely different than driving a race car or a motorcycle. It’s an unprecedented challenge that will require some racing game expertise.
In this game, a FIA TRC race consists of 12 trucks on a circuit, facing off in four sprints of 45 km each, with special passing techniques, physics and inertia distinct from any other type of vehicle, special penalties, and a reservoir of 200 litres of water that must be managed manually to cool your brakes, avoid overheating, and finish the race.
For several years, the championship has grown quickly and draws a larger and larger crowd every year. The amazingly spectacular races have ignited a growing passion for the discipline, and the media gives it wide visibility. The confrontations between these mechanical behemoths take place across the greatest circuits in Europe such as Le Mans, the Nürbürgring, Misano and the Hungaroring.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch in July. Watch the announcement trailer below.
