Patch v1.1 Released!


Hello community,

As you may guess, the major issue was the "crash" which has upset many of you. We've stripped down the code to the last bit to find the cause, we found it and fixed it. Meanwhile, Unity launched several updates and caused us a lot of trouble, we almost had to rebuild the game from scratch (It might have been easier actually).

Long story short, the game is now stable. It's still not an arcade but is much more playable with new and improved controls.

If you encounter any crash related issues while playing please e-mail us hello [at] playnative .com

One more thing...
We will soon announce online racing events. But before that, please come and join us on our discord channel[discord.gg], meet other pilots around the world.

Complete change list for the patch v1.1:

  • All cars' steering and wheel setups have been reconfigured
  • - Wheel clamping increased
  • - Suspension settings reconfigured to have less body roll
  • - Center of gravity of some cars have been fixed (But still, you can rollover it's intentional)
  • - Gear ratios reconfigured
  • - Brake power reconfigured
  • Career races have been reordered ("Easier" tracks at the beginning)
  • AI levels have been reconfigured to be more forgiving at the rookie levels
  • Camera placed slightly higher in order to show more of the road
  • Mini-map size has been reduced since cars are lot easier to control
  • The water art has been replaced with the new one
  • All tracks' lighting and ambiance settings have been edited to have a warmer "cartoony" feel
  • Garage screen car configuration bar colors have been edited


Drive safe and enjoy the game!
