About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The international release of the racing simulation GTR – FIA GT Racing Game is scheduled for the beginning of 2005. Due to continuous advancements in development of the product within recent months, publisher 10tacle studios AG and developer Simbin can announce several enhancements as well as additional features for the upcoming version. Read more for details and screens..

The absolute highlight is the newly integrated "Proximus 24 hours of Spa" race. Five completely new racing car models such as Gillet Vertigo Streiff, Seat Toledo GT or Mosler MT900 from totally 16 new opponents as well as semi-dynamic changes from daylight to nighttime create additional fun on the race track. During dusk or nighttime the race cars take the famous "Eau Rouge Passage" with breathtaking speed, creating spectacular headlight effects at all camera angles. Of course, the AI reacts to the changing circumstances and adjusts the speed to the limited visibility conditions. Never before has it been so impressive to drive a race car through the night.

In addition to the new features, the final version is also equipped with several product enhancements. Due to a new save-settings function, the single-player mode can be put on hold and the race resumed at a later point in time. The display of special effects has been fine-tuned, as well as the damage model, thus creating an even more realistic effect overall. New modifications have been added to the multi-player mode, providing for the required server stability in the one-on-one duel situation.
