Auto Club Revolution Dev Wants Players to Vote for Content, Voters Gain 'Advanced Beta Access'
After first announcing its upcoming car-sim in May 2010, UK-dev Eutechnyx has sent Shacknews a slew of new info for the free-to-play, browser-based racing title.
Auto Club Revolution, or ACR, will allow players to develop their "dream garage" from a selection of vehicles from 45 famous car manufactrers, including Jaguar, Lotus, Bugatti, McLaren, Pagani, BMW, Mini, Bentley, and Chevrolet.
Developed "in close collaboration" with car makers, the upcoming web browser-based title gives players the chance to customize their whips with full-licensed parts, test drive and "examine" their favorite rides before competing in online multiplayer races.
Like most free-to-play titles, ACR will have premium content available to its users. Players will also have the ability to buy and sell their own creations throughout the community.
In allowing the community to shape its content, potential players can now vote for the vehicles they would like to see in the game, as well as their preferred tracks for cities. According to the release, the plan for ACR is to constantly allow users to have a say in the game's content, "Whether it's specific types of cars, brands, locations, or anything else players are interested in." Users who register and vote will gain "advanced Beta access." Eutechnyx tells Shacknews the plan is to launch the beta at the end of this year and launch the full site in 2011. It's not Gran Turismo 5 on your PS3, but it sounds like an interesting distraction for gear-heads stuck behind a desk from 9 to 5.
