Atari nabs SimBin racer, 360-exclusive

GTR developer shows its new promising racer

Veteran race developer Simbin has teamed up with Atari for its next game, the "ultra realistic" and rubbish-named Race Pro - and its exclusive to Xbox 360.

PC fans will no doubt be disappointed by the jump to console, but Race Pro's sounding decent at least; powered by SimBin's own physics engine Lizard, the developer promises "unrivalled realism" and "deep immersion", plus Xbox Live games for 12-players.

Going by its impressive past games, we've no reason not to believe SimBin won't deliver on its promises.

RACE Pro sounds like it ticks all the check boxes for realism obsessives, with WTCC (World Touring Car Championship) tourneys, Formula 3000 and Formula BMW included, plus motors from Aston Martin, Audi R8 and Dodge.


Additionally, RACE Pro is exclusively sporting all the WTCC cars from Alfa Romeo, BMW, Chevrolet, which we're has caused someone, somewhere out there to wee their pants a bit.

"Having personally taken the leap from 20 years of championship racing to racing simulation development, I am really excited for SimBin to be taking its own leap from PC to Xbox 360," said SimBin CEO Henrik Roos. "We are proud to be taking this significant move with Atari, our trusted partner since our very first game."

Race Pro is out in the autumn. Definitely one for racing fans to look out for this year.
