R3E – New Content & Easter Egg Hunt Available

Just in time for Easter, Simbin has released some fresh content for their RaceRoom Racing Experience title.

Just in time for Easter, Simbin has released some fresh content for their RaceRoom Racing Experience title.

R3E users can now buy the BMW M3 E30 Group A, the Zakspeed Capri Group 5 as well as the new fictional RaceRoom Hill Climb.

To go along with the Easter theme, Simbin has also added a fun little game as the Apex Hunt mode has been turned into egg hunting mode!

While the three new content items all have to be purchased to be raced, Simbin is offering everyone a free chance to sample the new cars and track. The M3 will be free until 6pm this evening, after which the legendary Capri will become available for free for 24 hours.

Both cars can be tested on the RaceRoom Hillclimb track, using both the Amateur & Get Real driving model.

    I like RRE and have bought some of its contents to support Simbin. But I’m a bit dissapointed with them not saying a word about the future of GTR3. Will some of the money they got from RRE allocated to GTR3 development? Is Simbin still developing GTR3 or they completely abandon it atm?

      Nobody can tell you that for certain.
      But in my opinon (kinda pessimistic as usually though) the money from R3R will be spent on real cars for Simbin dev team and on overcoming the financial crisis. GTR3 doesn’t seem likely in the next few years.

      I read somewhere that SimBin said GTR3 isn’t in development and that RRRE is it, at least for the foreseeable future.

    at last a reasonable price for a track, 5€ for one track is far too
    expensive my dear SIMBIN! just one important question that prevents me
    from buying content is the uncertainty of playing the game if simbim
    will power down their servers one day… or have i missed something?
    maybe this will give us a chance to overcome the shock of the missing
    news for GTR3! c’mon! 😉

      I think if something like that happen, they will release something like offline version and dedicated servers…. At least you do not need to buy monthly subscriptions. You buy a car and you can drive it anytime. I own a lot of cars and tracks in iRacing, now I unsubscribed for a while because enjoying R3E and Assetto and other stuffs right now much more and I can’t drive anything until I subscribe again… ;o)

        iRacing? i bought Spa during my trial period and then never subscribed again. so much for wasting my money 😉 ok convinced! i bought the 2 new cars and the hillclimb track. great content btw – happy easter!

  • Hanzales

    I’m so glad for those new cars! Zakspeed Capri become my most favorite car right now especially at the new hillclimb track! And it sounds brilliant again.
    Personally I started to like R3E the same like Assetto (both for something else).
    I supported R3E as well (purchased all the content available at this moment). Hope they will release LeMans or Nordschleife at some day. In case Kunoz or SimBin make a laser scanned version of those tracks, woukd be really awesome! But I understand it is really expensive and time consumption task :/

    • Hanzales

      Just thinking… someone maybe should put Nordschleife laser scanning on kickstarter ;o)

    I am just waiting for a reasonable prize for the all content, whenever they decide title is over

    Well downloaded this a few weeks back and I’ve been enjoying my first taste of a SIMBIN title, even with the limited starting content.
    But Today I decided to treat myself to some new content as I feel this title and team deserve supporting even if it isn’t the GTR3 everyone keeps crying for.

    So I invested in 2 new tracks, Suzuka and the new RaceRoom Hill Climb (Hope there’s more hill climbs en-route)
    and 3 new cars the Mclaren MP4-12C GT3, Audi R8 LMS Ultra and the Zakspeed Capri.
    When pay day rolls around again next month I’ll invest in a few more cars and tracks.
    It’s impressed me with the sounds and handling so much, I’m half tempted to try out their older titles to see where SIMBIN have come from.

      Lucky you 🙂

    Shame,that they want money for every car and track…. I thought,it will
    be price for whole game,not just a few cars and tracks… Sorry,but i
    dont have too much money to pay every car or track…. The closed beta
    was great,but this is very disapointing for me…. 🙁 Sorry for my
    english.
