    The after sales support/updating and love and attention the developers are worshiping upon this title is nothing short of phenomenal. Suzuka is amazing and the new carts are so much fun. There just isn’t enough superlatives to heap upon this amazing title. Keep it coming, I’m loving it all. Big thank you.

    Hmmm imagine that. New car, new track and it’s all FREE!!! Thanks Reiza. I cannot think of many times that I’ve spent $29 and gotten so much free stuff afterwards.

    • kauff

      It is pretty awesome! I am impressed how they have been building their community, totally new model for organic growth!

    • RapidRefund

      I anticipate some type of payware expansion in the future and no I am not worried that they might over charge for it history suggests they won’t. Still as GSCE sees more saturation on Steam and sales slow they will have a need to create more revenue which I have zero problems with.

  • Armchair Racer

    You didn’t put the part of the change log where Reiza teased something big coming in June. Something even better than the V8 Supercar Niels mentioned? Can’t wait to find out!

    • David Wright

      They hint that using plugins to add new features isn’t working like they hoped. My guess is they’ve bought the rights to modify the game engine like Simbin did when they licensed the ISI engine.

    • pcarsphyxexpert

      Have you seen the 3D models of these cars, they’re epic, so if they get the ffb and physics right{which they should}, this could be the best release for SCE ever hahahahaha.

    Honestly, I don’t know how they can continue to add this level of support and free, quality, DLC. But, I’m not complaining! Thanks Reiza!

  • apex55

    This was an amazing release. Just ran a race versus AI at Suzuka and I can honestly say it was one of the best sim experiences ever. Great work Reiza. I actually bought another copy for a second steam account as a gesture of thanks!

    • Andrew Supa

      Mate what a great thing to do! The game is soo good that I actually wouldn’t mind paying a little more for these updates! Best FFb out there…..even beats Rfactor2 hands down! I have a G27!

  • pcarsphyxexpert

    ah, the beauty of steam, far superior to gsync……up and running in a few minutes.

    • TC

      I’ve updated via gsync this morning at full speed, it works great (as always).

      • pcarsphyxexpert

        I’ve never liked gsycn, but steam is a champ, and with the amount of updating reiza seem to do, it’s the best place for it.

      • Richard Hessels

        GSCEsync is only one double click.. about 2 minutes later it’s updated.
        And the amount of updates is a bit overreacting.
        About once every 3 months.

      • pcarsphyxexpert

        That’s not my experience whatsoever, steam is far superior.

  • jotaf1df

    I am trying it now. I set to 6:00 PM, it is so beautiful, the light effects, and the immersion. Reiza make a great step ahead. The track is very faithful to the Real, I think it is the best version of Susuka track for years. A hug friends.

  • Sigmatc

    This last addition is another blast as always.

    Very well done Reiza and thanks

    I hope more people will buy this awesome SIM

  • Traumahound

    Reiza is very clever in its strategy of delivering significant, high-quality content on a regular basis to keep reminding users just how relevant their title continues to be.

    Their latest kart and Kansai/Suzuka tracks (two layouts) seem well-suited to each other, and are loads of fun right out of the box. Thanks, also, to VR for reminding us what the wheel rotation should be!

    As much as I like that Reiza brings us classics like Suzuka to drive on (with their signature aesthetic and physical fidelity), I really appreciate getting to know their lesser-known circuits which are treated with such immense attention to detail and atmosphere, and are super drives (Opalas at Jacarepagua, anyone?).

    I do have one little issue maybe some of you can help me sort out or at least understand. I have no issues with frame rates, but I’m getting frequent stuttering that’s almost too quick to notice, but it can throw me off my response times just a bit.

    Anyone know what might cause this and/or have a solution? Thanks!

    • Andrew Supa

      turn off anything to do with shadows! 2 different settings! I’ve got a GTX760 that stuttered and this fixed it. Google it and you will find some talk about it!

  • Ian Hare

    I originally purchased GSC 2013 but around the time I had several issues with hardware and ended up using my reactivations and could not get anywhere with Rieza at the time, can anybody confirm if possible please if I would be entitled to the Steam upgrade key? I have a Steam account.Thanks.

    • kenpat .

      You could ask at Reiza’s own site or try at RD. They are on there regularly, but I’m pretty sure that if you have a key then you should be able to transfer to Steam.

  • Sam

    Great! One of the last true sim out there with truly the best tiremodel available (Thanks Niels) keep your high standards. Thanks guys.
