We’ve seen racing games over the years use real-world roads in order to help make their game have a layer of authenticity most other games don’t. There are gamers out there who would prefer to race on real-world roads since they may not be able to get a chance to in real life, but a new PC game is taking this feature to another level.
Real World Racing is a top-down racing game for the PC that uses real satellite images to allow the player to drive through real-world roads. The game is currently in open beta and allows players to drive six vehicles across three maps from Rome, Berlin and London in single player, time trial and multiplayer modes.
When the game is finished, the developers plan to launch the game with 80 vehicles, at least 50 tracks and an additional career mode.
As of now, there’s no information regarding pricing or release date, but Real World Racing is currently seeking approval via Steam Greenlight. We don’t know about you, but we certainly gave it a “Yes” on its Greenlight profile after seeing it in action.
