I had no idea this was even a thing! Here comes Truck Racing Championship, from BigBen Entertainment and Maximum Games!
TRUCK RACING CHAMPIONSHIP –
THE GIANTS AWAKEN!
Lesquin, April 25th, 2019 – Bigben is happy to announce Truck Racing Championship, the official racing simulation of the ETRC, developed using the KT Engine, a specialized game engine for creating racing simulations (WRC, TT Isle of Man, V-Rally). The game will be available on PlayStation 4TM, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch™ in July 2019.
Truck Racing Championship promises a new experience for fans of racing games as well as the large number of trucking simulation fans. Taming an overpowered, 5-ton monster is entirely different than driving a race car or a motorcycle. It's an unprecedented challenge that will require some racing game expertise.
In this game, a TRC race consists of 12 trucks on a circuit, facing off in four sprints of 45 km each, with special passing techniques, physics and inertia distinct from any other type of vehicle, special penalties, and a reservoir of 200 liters of water that must be managed manually to cool your brakes, avoid overheating, and finish the race.
For several years, the championship has grown quickly and draws a larger and larger crowd every year. The amazingly spectacular races have ignited a growing passion for the discipline, and the media gives it wide visibility. The confrontations between these mechanical behemoths take place across the greatest circuits in Europe such as Le Mans, the Nürbürgring, Misano and the Hungaroring.
Watch the trailer to discover the particularities of this new simulation that will lead you across all the most epic circuits in Europe and the United States.
There's a part of me that really wishes these trucks had flame throwers on them, but Truck Racing Championship looks like a lot of fun anyway!
