SimBin further strengthens its position in the motor sport game genre. The latest achievement is to acquire the game license for the highly prestigious WTCC - the World Touring Car Championship, one of only three existing FIA* world championships.
SimBin and the two organisations behind WTCC, Eurosport and KSO, have agreed on a cooperation lasting over four seasons, 2005-2008, involving several gaming platforms.

- We are very proud to have been given this prestigious assignment - having in mind that the FIA Organisation only has three world championships, Formula One, WRC and WTCC. This is an agreement that the team and myself have worked hard to achieve, actually since 2004, and it is most inspiring to finally have reached the goal. WTCC gives us the opportunity to use our combined experience within motor sports and game development to the fullest. It will be very exciting to work closely with the 25 teams, car manufacturers and Eurosport/KSO, says Henrik Roos, SimBin CEO and former professional race driver.

- We have looked for a game developer with the experience and knowledge to take the intense and adrenaline pumping experience of WTCC racing into the world of video gaming. SimBin with its motor sport background and excellent track record from it´s previous game titles will secure that our racing fans as well as gamers can expect a WTCC game of top quality. The results are expected to be enjoyed on PC and Next gen consoles, Jaques Behar, KSO Chairman and Eurosport executive comments.

- WTCC is a completely new challenge with its own positioning: bumper to bumper, action packed, hard hitting. WTCC features race cars of similar power, road holding and aerodynamics that are based on real street cars which people can recognize. This will allow us to create intense games that attract a wide audience - just like the real life WTCC races, Tomas Karlsson, SimBin COO, explains.

*FIA - Federation International de L´Automobile, the International Automobile Association.

That's way cool news!

Well let's hope that they won't be using the new Starforce in their future games. We all know how much difficulty it's presented for some users. Read about the next version of Starforce.

The thing is that while all tracks are allowed to look the same in games, which largely allows for other features, in WRC nearly all locations are different from the other in terms of colour, feel, surroundings etc, so you'd need more space for that. Then again, there are hardly 7 different cars in the series as compared to the 15+ (?) in track racing so...
