Over the last few weeks, Studio 397 has teased the next major rFactor 2 update. Following January’s update that added a redesigned UI, the Q2 Content Drop will add new car and track DLC along with new community-requested features.

We already knew the Q2 Content Drop is coming this month, and now a teaser video released by Studio 397 has confirmed the release date – and we don’t have long to wait.

This is going to be a substantial update. BTCC fans are in for a treat, as the new DLC includes the Donington Park and Brands Hatch circuits along with officially licensed BTCC cars.

With Motorsport Games’ BTCC game seemingly in limbo, rFactor 2’s BTCC content couldn't come at a better time.

Laguna Seca is also coming to rFactor 2 next week as part of the Q2 Content Drop.

Pricing for the new cars and tracks is not confirmed yet, but details will be confirmed next week.

Listen to rFactor 2’s new engine sounds

As previewed in the April Release Candidate, the Q2 Content Drop will also add new and improved engine sounds.

A video released by Studio 397 compares the old and new engine sounds, and the difference is clear. The enhanced engine audio sounds more detailed, visceral, and defined.

Other changes in the Q2 Content Drop will include improved rain weather effects, smarter AI, and a downshift protection option.
