Two years in the making, Reiza Studios has seemingly wrapped up working on their historic edition of the Nürburgring. On Tuesday (18th April), Reiza first tweeted a teaser that said “This weekend… #AMS2” with a picture of a road sign that showed the fork in the road between taking the Südschleife or Nordschleife paths.
This 1971 version of the Green Hell will be a part of Automobilista 2‘s Nürburgring Pack, which is already out there for $9.99 or is included in the 2020-2022 Season Pass. Reiza updated their community on the track back in the March blog, stating that the track wouldn’t be ready at that point due to taking on the addition of the Südschleife, or South Loop.
There’s been no formal announcement besides the two tweets about it, the second tweet explaining that it’s taken two years but it is in the final stages of production with some eye candy as well. So, it’s not fully confirmed to be releasing this weekend. However, the signs are all pointing towards this legendary release.
Back in 1971, the Nordschleife had 160 turns and was 22.835-kilometers, or 14.189 miles in length, just a touch longer than the version that exists today. As for the Südschleife, which was eventually abandoned, that course back in 1971 was much smaller in comparison, only 7.747-kilometers, or 4.814-miles in length with 27 corners.
The art for the historic circuit is expected to be reminiscent of the time period as well. Hopefully, it won’t be too much longer until its release, that is if the teases are meant to let us believe it’s coming very soon.
