It’s that time of the month again for rFactor 2 fans. In this instalment, the Studio 397 team update us on the progress they’ve made or hope to make in the future in the name of transparency with their fan base.

rFactor 2 regularly hits the major Steam sales with 50% off yet again. There are however new DLC items in the sale this time which could tempt any fans that haven’t added them to their inventory just yet. This includes the Formula E bundle (60% off), GT3 pack (50% off) but also some incredible deals on KartSim. The highlight for us though is the price of the Reiza DLC.

Endurance Bundle 2
As reported on yesterday, there’s now some more beautifully modelled DLC for rFactor 2. Endurance Bundle 2 DLC adds the Cadillac DPi, Corvette C8.r and the Ligier JS P217 LMP2.
You can purchase the pack here.
RCCO eX Zero
A small update here from the developers, reminding users that this was launched recently (check out the story). It’s likely to be used in future esports competitions.
You can purchase the new car here.
Competition System & UI Update
Again, as previously mentioned just before Christmas there was a new build. This included the first iteration of the competition system and also made the new UI default for the very first time.
No doubt this is going to have a game-changing effect on rFactor 2’s competition scene. Gone are the days of searching everywhere for the correct content only to find there’s no-one there when you finally connect. You will no longer need to trawl the internet in the hope that there’ll be a suitable and well-managed league for you to join.
That said, there are certainly things still missing:
- Protests for foul play
- Roles or team-based driving
- Broadcast integration
- Offline championships
It’s all in progress though and we’ll be bringing you more news as we have it.
Also mentioned are all the updates that have recently been made to some of the already released content.
These updates include:
- Spa Francorchamps (v1.15)
- Nurburgring Nordschleife (v2.17)
- Portland International Raceway (v1.04)
- Hong Kong E-Prix (v1.65)
- Botniaring (v1.05)
You can read more information on the track updates here.
That’s in, that’s the update. It’s certainly been a big year for rFactor 2 and Studio 397 and we’re looking forward to seeing what 2021 has in store for them – particularly now they have the new competition platform!
