02/22/2013 - Daytona and Chevrolet Join Auto Club Revolution
Daytona and Chevrolet, two of the great names in US racing are coming to Auto Club Revolution®

RACE THE WORLD!

It’s impossible to think of all-out American racing without also thinking about the Daytona 500 and some of the iconic American car brands that have graced that incredible track. The names just roll off the tongue – Ford, Dodge, Pontiac, Chevrolet.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series gets underway this weekend with the Daytona 500 and, to coincide with the race,
Auto Club Revolution has released a new version of the Daytona International Speedway for racing fans to enjoy.

The Daytona International Speedway represents the third NASCAR race course to be added to Auto Club Revolution's already impressive line up. Competition is fast and furious, as Daytona launches with the classic oval track. Players will be on an adrenaline rush as they hurtle around the 2.5mile tri-oval superspeedway, tackling 31 degree banking turns while jostling for the chequered flag. Further routes will be introduced to the track at a later date.

Want a thrill seeking ride to enjoy the track? Then check out the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS. The Camaro,  the latest in a line-up of classic American muscle cars, packs a lot of punch alongside the Dodge (Viper, Charger and Challenger) and Ford Shelby GT500 already available in the
online game. With over 400bhp, and 1st gear good for 50mph, racers can put the rear-wheel-drive Camaro SS through its paces in Auto Club Revolution

Further updates have also been implemented, including improved force feedback and rumble for those using racing wheels; race camera updates to increase visibility and the sense of speed; and connectivity, load time and stability enhancements for an overall improved player experience. 

Racing fans can jump in on the action by visiting

02/18/2013 - WRC 3 FIA World Rally Champion Ship Coming to PS3 and PSV
WRC 3 FIA WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP SLATED TO ROAR ONTO THE TRACKS IN THE AMERICAS

NORTH AND LATIN AMERICAN RALLY FANS TO EXPERIENCE OFFICIAL WRC RACING ACTION ON THE PLAYSTATION®3 AND PLAYSTATION®VITA SYSTEMS

SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 15, 2013)  NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced that  WRC 3 FIA World Rally Championship will be hitting North and Latin America with the ultimate rally racing experience in Spring of 2013 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita system. Developed by racing genre-savvy developer Milestone,  WRC 3 draws its content directly from the 2012 FIA World Rally Championship, allowing gamers to experience racing at breakneck speeds on official tracks with real world-renowned teams and racers.



A variety of single and multiplayer modes provides hours of playtime for any racing fan, but the heart and soul of  WRC 3 lies in its Road to Glory mode, which reflects the exhilarating and rewarding career of becoming top racing talent in the WRC universe. Players will be able to create their own teams and compete through a series of adrenaline-pumping rallies taking place in the most famous locations in the world. For those who like a little more competition, players of the PS3 version can also turn up the heat by racing against friends in the Hot Seat, where up to 4 players can compete locally in a variety of modes to see which is the fastest on the track. The online multiplayer modes also use car Ghosts to let players see what their opponents are doing every moment of the race, for a feeling of real head-to-head competition.

From the snowy roads of Sweden to the green forests of New Zealand, there is no surface or climate that  WRC drivers won’t face. Accurate in-game vehicle physics, complete with real-world car behavior, bring the thrill of piloting a WRC car to life. Players are challenged with characteristic track elements in each rally stage—fast straights, jumps, fords, tight corners and hairpin turns—pushing them to use advanced driving techniques to manage their vehicle’s performance.

WRC 3 creates an in-game virtual reality that is guaranteed to immerse gamers into the riveting world of WRC racing,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “Every aspect of the game, from the vehicle physics, to the graphics quality, to the live-recorded car engine sounds, will give players a gameplay experience that truly lives up to the high-octane motorsports adventure that is WRC.”

WRC 3 FIA World Rally Championship is rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB, and will be available for the PlayStation 3 system (both Packaged and Digital) and PlayStation Vita system (Digital only) in North America and Latin America in Spring of 2013. For further info please visit
