RaceRoom, the popular PC-based simulator by Sector3 Studios has received its latest update that also brings with it the release of the paid WTCR 2020 DLC.
First up, the WTCR 2020 car pack that we reported on earlier this week is available for purchase. It includes two new cars, the CUPRA Leon Competición and Renault Mégane RS TCR, plus liveries for the TCR cars already in the game to match the real-world 2020 FIA World Touring Car Cup. In total that makes for 33 updated or new vehicles in the set. Upon release, there is a 40% discount, pricing the pack at £16.37.
To mark the launch of the new addition, the games’ Daily and Weekly Ranked Races have been updated too. The WTCR 2020 DLC pack will be used for an on-the-hour race around MotorLand Aragón and for the Weekly event on Wednesday 3rd March at the same venue.
To round out the changes to the game, there has been an update that will refine elements for all players. Weighing in at 1.7GB, it’s available to download now. We’ve included the full changelog below if that’s your cup of tea.
We’d like to hear from you via our TraxionGG social media channels, are you playing RaceRoom? Will you be purchasing this new DLC? Please, let us know.
