Straight4 Studios’ CEO Ian Bell has tweeted another teaser image of its upcoming sim GTRevival, revealing the inclusion of Group C cars.
Bell released two screenshots set at Autódromo José Carlos Pace – better known as Interlagos – showing a clear view of the rear of a 1988 Jaguar XJ-R9 Group C prototype, followed up by a second shot of the same car with what looks like another Group C example in the background – the Nissan R89C.
Both cars featured in one of Bell’s previous games, Project CARS 2, developed by Slightly Mad Studios (SMS), giving players hope that GTRevival will be the kind of all-encompassing racing experience expected from the likes of Gran Turismo 7 and the upcoming Forza Motorsport.
The images arrive off the back of the first in-game screenshots of GTRevival, showcasing what looks to be the latest 2022 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II, featured again at Interlagos.
Straight4 previously showcased a Ferrari 550 GTS Maranello in its Straight4 Newsletter, offering further hints the game will cover the full gamut of motorsport history – including the classic GTR 2-era 2003 and 2004 FIA GT Championship.
GTRevival is set to be powered by Unreal Engine 5 with physics based on a modified version of SMS’s Madness engine, which has been enhanced and used to great effect in recent times by Reiza Studio in Automobilista 2, leading to a close partnership between Straight 4 and the Brazilian developer.
