rFactor 2 – Lola T70 at Spa Preview

Image Space Incoportated has released a new screenshot of their upcoming rFactor 2 simulation, wishing all sim racers a happy new year and revealing a new car.

The screenshot shows the Lola T70 endurance racing prototype at Spa Francorchamps 1967.

rFactor 2 will introduce various improvements to the modding-friendly simulation including weather, driver animations and a refined graphics engine. ISI has not announced a definite release date yet.

    …the company is still aiming to release their newest title by the end of 2010 though…

    Hurry up, only just a few hours.. :-D :-D :-D

    really enjoy the shot ,o and happy big  new year to ,rfactor 2 is coming to town

  • Yoshimura.GP.EVO.1

    lol!

  • pascaljackson

    looks like comic

  • Firestarter

    The old flare photoshop trick…..kinda lame

  • canamracer

    Rule no. 1 of screen editing: don’t use the photoshop lense flare effect >:o

    Lola T70 is a nice choice of car, but the model does not look that spot-on, as usual with ISI-modeled cars.

    But no reason to worry, as long as the engine gives the modders all the freedom they need it will be just as groundbreaking as rFactor 1. :-D

  • yeahwhatever

    trees look great! are they edited? i guess they are.They look too good :)

    Happy new year to ISI crew.

  • Carbonfibre

    Maybe they should hold off posting new shots now till the new shaders are in. These WIPs are making me more nervous than excited!

    I would have been satisfied with 1/4 of the image in focus.

    Apart from that, the only other negative opinion I have is that all rF2 shots/video so far, look like they were taken on a tilt shift lens. A narrower FOV would look more natural to my eyes imo, the SFX motion blur can take care of the sense of speed at the peripheries.

    Oh and Happy new year too lol.

  • stabiz

    I dont mind edited previews of mods, since I can tell what its going to look like without the editing. Edited previews of a new game engine … not a big fan of that.

  • addyduss

    ffs dont shop low-res screenies..

  • john

    A very mediocre screenshot.  I see an out of focus track we’ve seen before, a tiny glimpse of a new car and the whole thing is blown out with the ‘taboo’ lens flare.  This one truly does look like an rf1 photoshop

  • releasedate?

    You’ll be lucky to get it by the of 2012 the way things are going! Come on ISI, you must have an idea by now when it will be ready.  

  • F1Racer

    It is a bit silly moaning about an effect on a screenshot that wont even be in the final game :)

    But.. on the flip side adding that lens-flare has not improved the shot and was pretty unecessary.

  • Guest

    Come on you guys, aren’t you all happy that they decided to bring flavour to rfactor? It’s a Lola for goodness’ sake, and you still moan about photoshop effects when their V8 surprise comes wrapped in a 60’s legendary coupe.

  • Uff

    Maybe because it’s a Photoshopped screen?

  • Lohh

    It’s one of my favourite sportscars ever so I’m pretty happy about this :)

  • john

    I know.  It looks like an rf1 photoshop screen.  I was hoping an rf2 photoshop screen would look much, much better.   Dont get me wrong, i cant wait for rf2, its just this screen seems kinda pointless

  • The Biff

    I’ll be buying rfactor2 the first week it’s out…I can’t wait. 

  • Carmoonker

    Nice shot. Just make sure you guys are working on the physics and FFB, they are by fare the worst points about rfactor.

  • Howie47

    I think it is a photo graph of the real track and car from the sixties; that has been photo shopped. Made just to mock all the mockers. If not, that would be a good trick to pull.

  • yeahwhatever

    and the dated graphics

  • NoIsIFanboy

    OF course, let the community finish the “game”, like in rF1. Maybe the community can also make the look not that F1C like…

  • Mr Xmas

    blah blah blah

    it will be a lot better than rf1 – result!

    :D

  • Flaux

    IT DOESN’T MATTER  8-)

  • Flaux

    I like the picture.

  • kiwi

    I think the grass textures need some work. Otherwise it looks good.

  • nofx

    nice cartoon

  • Gulyo

    This rF2 “project” is absolutely ridiculous in 2010-2011.
    Nothing real news just 1-2 stupid screenshots.
    It’s a total joke !!!

  • Flaux

    Seriously, it doesn’t matter!

  • Panzerknacker

    It wouldn’t be so bloody bad if they could actually use Photoshop properly – It looks like a 10 year old has made an attempt at editing a screenshot using stock PS features that no professional touches these days (and rightly so!).

    I expect better from a dev company. Mod teams are putting ISI to shame, and pro development teams are blowing them out of the water.
