'Race Driver One' (PS3/X360/PC) Announced

by Rainier on April 19, 2007 @ 6:34 a.m. PDT

Codemasters announced the next installment in the TOCA Race Driver franchise, Race Driver One. Using an optimized version of the NEON engine with improved physics, visuals and car damage system. Race Driver One will include locations around Europe, Japan, and the US, mixing official circuit-based championships and urban street competitions.

Race Driver One will be a true evolution for the series, which first appeared as the TOCA (DTM/V8) Touring Car games (1997–2000) and became the TOCA (DTM/V8) Race Driver series (2002-2006). Taking the series from ultimate racing simulation to ultimate racing stimulation, Race Driver One™ will be the next technical showcase for Neon, the studio's proprietary middleware system that is already driving Colin McRae: DIRT™ in incredible detail.

Challenging players to become the number one race driver in a new world of exhilarating motorsport, Race Driver One™ will take players on a tour like never before; to beautifully realised racing locations through Europe, the U.S., Japan and beyond. The game will feature the most extensive range of events in the series, combining official circuit-based championships with road races and urban street competitions.

"As each generation of gaming formats shifts up a gear, so does this series and Race Driver One is set to evolve the previously headlined TOCA (DTM/V8) titles as much as DIRT has the Colin McRae series," says Gavin Raeburn, Executive Producer at Codemasters Studios.

"Combining our racing heritage with the Neon engine, Race Driver One will create a world that goes far beyond the traditional boundaries of motorsport gaming, taking players from the most prestigious race circuits to road and street events around the globe. A completely fresh career structure will engage players in an unprecedented range of racing styles as they build a team capable of becoming number one. The Neon engine will be expanded to deliver a new level of visual detail, physics and an astonishing car damage system."

Race Driver One, developed at Codemasters Studios, will arrive in 2008 for leading console platforms and PC.
