RaceRoom Hillclimb Update Released

0

Sector3 has released an extensive update for RaceRoom Racing Experience, bringing many new fixes to the title. In addition, the new Hillclimb Pack has been released, giving you the opportunity to drive historic hillclimb cars up the RaceRoom Hillclimb course.

The Hillclimb Pack includes 5 cars with 14 available liveries to choose from:

  • BMW 635 CSI
  • BMW M1 Procar
  • BMW 320 Turbo
  • BMW M3 E30 Gr.A
  • Carlsson SLK 340 JUDD

The pack also features the RaceRoom Hillclimb, a 10.2 mile hillclimb course, which is very technical and tricky to drive. While each piece of content is available separately, it is recommended to buy the entire pack, for a 60% savings. The pack is available now for 849 vRP.

In addition to this new release, we have a major patch released for RaceRoom Racing Experience. This improves a lot of the under-the-hood functionality, as well as some minor graphics enhancements. For the full list of improvements, check out the changelog below.
