“We’re excited to release our IndyCar Series game in time for the world famous Indy 500,” said Steve Lux, Codemasters’ senior vice president of marketing in the U.S. “Now racing fans and gamers alike will be able to recreate the adrenaline-pumping experience of the ‘Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’ without ever leaving their living room.”
Indy Car Series events are broadcast to over 313 million homes across 66 countries. With speeds exceeding 220 mph, the IndyCar Series video game captures the exhilarating, ultra-close racing as experienced only by the professional drivers of the Indy Racing League. Set to be the most exciting and entertaining open-wheel racing game ever designed, IndyCar Series is the only game that features the official cars, tracks, teams and drivers, all in U.S. TV-style presentation.
“The Indy Racing League is thrilled that Codemasters has been able to create a game that accurately depicts the speed, intensity and excitement of open-wheel racing,” said Nicole Polsky, director of licensing for the IRL. “Since IndyCar Series will be available before the Indy 500 takes place, racing fans will be able to get their first taste of the Indy 500 before it even happens.”
The game will deliver the entire Indy Racing season, including "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indy 500. Players will experience lightning-paced action, authentic and intuitive handling, spectacular collisions and a dynamically adjusted level of difficulty to keep the challenges on the circuits coming heavy and fast. Players will continuously have to overtake other vehicles on the track by using drafting techniques, defend their position, maximize grip in the groove and switch fuel settings to capitalize on speed or economy.
