With Unreal Engine 5 graphics, modding support, and esports events backed by ESL Gaming, Rennsport promises to be the next big thing in sim racing.
Several cars have already been confirmed for the new sim racing challenger, but which tracks can you race them on? Here's everything we know about the Rennsport tracks!
Rennsport closed-beta adds new track
The first major update to the Rennsport closed beta sees the addition of a brand-new track. Inspired by the '8 Beta Keys' meme, the 8ETA figure-of-eight circuit is a true test of the game's tyre model.
The update also sees a new car, improved animations and sounds, and better track limit detection designed to enhance the realistic experience.
You can see the full list of changes coming here.
Rennsport will feature an assortment of real-world circuits to race on. With the final release still several months away, the full Rennsport track list is yet to be confirmed.
Here are the confirmed Rennsport tracks so far:
- Daytona International Speedway
- Goodwood Hillclimb
- Nurburgring GP
- Road Atlanta
Having appeared in Assetto Corsa and iRacing, Germany’s Hockenheimring (home of the German Grand Prix until 2008) will be a familiar circuit for seasoned sim racers.
Being able to tackle the Goodwood Hillclimb in a sim racing game will be a novelty, however, as it was last seen in Gran Turismo 6 back in 2013.
Though it hasn't been officially announced, Spa-Francorchamps was shown in a trailer promoting the ESL R1 tournament along with the Mercedes-AMG GT3.
More Rennsport tracks will be announced closer to release. Developer Competition Company plans to add Nurburgring, Red Bull Ring, and Monza but envisions the final game to have “hundreds of race tracks" in "three or four years."
As for the release date, Competition Company is aiming for a December 2023 release, with the final date to be confirmed. But eager players can try out the upcoming iRacing rival soon.
A closed beta is set to start in June 2023 for selected players – interested players can sign up for a chance to get access on Rennsport’s official website.
An open beta will then launch later this year, allowing all players to take Rennsport for a spin ahead of the final release.
