Eidos unveils Race

New racer from GTR2 dev to feature ramped-up graphics, multiplayer AI opponents and dirty windscreens. First shots inside

Eidos will publish Race, from Swedish dev, Simbin, the team behind the GTR and GT Legends series, in November on PC.

Based on the WTCC (that's World Touring Car Championships to us non-racing folk), Race boasts the entire 2006 season along with all of the cars, drivers and locations located there-in.

60 different vehicles and ten licensed tracks from different continents are promised, along with a "detailed damage system, realistic AI opponents with sprint race attitude, dynamic weather effects, real world driver involvement and support for up to 26 players online." More than enough to get racing fans wiggling their gear sticks then.

Further more, the latest issue of PC ZONE reveals a host of fancy new graphical effects, including a new "dirty windscreen" effect which accumulates bugs and bits of rubber on your motor as the race progresses.

RACE - The Official WTCC Game will be out on PC on November 24.
