'DTM Experience' Gets Official Release Date

by Rainier on Dec. 3, 2013 @ 2:45 a.m. PST

DTM Experience is crafted with a focus on authenticity, recreating the real drivers, teams as well as the tracks and cars from the DTM season 2013.

DTM Experience assures by its high degree of realism and skillful arrangement of challenges, that the authentic driving experience reaches all players. The difficulty levels “Novice” and “Amateur” offer intelligent support for the driving dynamics of the cars allowing for a good balance between easy handling and a challenge to master. The “Get Real” driving model lets the player experience DTM like a real race driver. At this level, all technical settings correspond with that of their real life counterparts. Transmission ratio, differential, aerodynamics and many more parameters can be changed to simulate the powerful mechanisms behind a real DTM car. 

Experienced drivers can further add tire wear and car damage to their experience. A particular action-rich option is provided by the DRS (Drag Reduction System). Like in reality, the players can modify the aerodynamics of the car with DRS via the push of a button, and move the rear wing to support crucial takeovers.

A further highlight is A.R.I. (Adaptive Racing Intelligence) which adapts automatically and intelligently to the individual drivers skill. When the driver becomes better, so do the opponents. The artificial intelligence “learns” and continues to be a challenge for the driver.

Online Leaderboard Challenges connect directly to driving profiles. Gamers’ lap times mix with the DTM pros’ times enlisted on the Leaderboards. 

Equipped with these outstanding driving dynamics, the drivers of DTM Experience enter the challenge with the original DTM vehicles on the original DTM tracks, competing based on the original rules against perfectly simulated and realistic opponents. The fight for the title influences not only the driver’s progress but also that of the DTM team’s and DTM manufacturer’s scoreboards. The sophisticated Qualifying modes in four competition levels boil up the excitement around the pole position battle. The Race with its duels doesn’t lack in drama compared to the real DTM.

As an absolute highlight, with the DTM Experience 2013/14 Season Pass all buyers of DTM Experience 2013 are for now granted free access to the coming DTM Experience 2014 that will include Online Multiplayer Mode. This is a time limited offer that will be available until the 31st of March, 2014.

  • DTM Single Races: Unlimited choice of track and car for free races
  • DTM Tracktest: Free Time attack and training on any track with any car of the DTM season 2013
  • DTM Leaderboard Competition: Online Time Attack against all players of worldwide DTM Experience

CARS

  • AUDI RS 5 DTM: An Audi V8 engine powers this low slung aerodynamic masterpiece of a machine. Updates to the body means this successor of the Audi A5 DTM is now less sensitive to contact and better suited to slipstream battles, allowing you to race hard and bid for the win.
  • BMW M3 DTM: Improving on the title winning package from 2012, this upgraded BMW M3 DTM is even more robust than before, allowing it to withstand the rough duels and close racing of DTM undamaged. This car is a new interpretation of the well-known M3 brand and is built to take you to the finish line.
  • DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé: This model is a successor of the AMG Mercedes C-Class which, with 85 victories in 159 races, is the most successful vehicle in the DTM’s 30-year history. The racing car is based on the C-Class Coupé that celebrated its world debut in 2011.

TRACKS

  • Hockenheim: Redesigned in 2001, the new Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg traditionally stages the DTM season kick-off as well as the final round of the season. The track demands precision driving, especially through the corner combinations in the Motodrom stadium complex.
  • Brands Hatch: With dramatic corners, hills, dips and cambers, the Brands Hatch circuit is a serious test of driver skill. The blind entry to Paddock Hill Bend in particular remain one of the great tests of world racing, and never fails to offer drama and excitement.
  • Red Bull Ring: A modern update on the legendary Österreichring, Red Bull Ring reviving the well-known corners and adding a few new twists to the set of challenges a complete laps offers. Tight corners and heavy braking means good overtaking opportunities.
  • Lausitzring: Flat and with high levels of grip, the Lausitzring dares you to go too fast too soon. But to set a good lap, you need to be smooth and avoid errors in the infield section. Go easy on the high curbs in the first hairpin or your lap will suffer.
  • Norisring: Compact, uncompromising and deceptively tricky to master despite the simple layout. As the only street circuit in DTM calendar the Norisring is not for the faint of heart, the walls are close and the frantic breaking for the first hairpin turn can make or break your race.
  • Moscow Raceway: Moscow Raceway is the first Russian circuit built to hold international motorsport events and a new entry to the DTM calendar. The track layout used for DTM is short and technical, but the long back straight is built for slipstreaming and late brake maneuvers.
  • Nürburgring DTM: A first class racing track, located right next to the famous Nordschleife but offering a very different challenge. A hairpin first corner gets you started and then the challenges never stop until you hit the back straight. A good track for multiple overtaking chances during a lap.
  • Oschersleben: Oschersleben is tricky and selective track without much in elevation changes, but high on drama. The first corner is a left angle twisting directly into a long 180 degree turn, a certain recipe for close calls and traded paint. The tight chicane needs to be attacked aggressively.
  • Zandvoort: Circuit Park Zandvoort is an old school race track located in the Netherlands, directly in the dunes near the coast line. The 4.3 km long track offers fast and sweeping corners as well as tight hairpins that provide excellent overtaking opportunities. It’s a real challenge and the drivers love it.
