A new development update from Reiza Studios unveiled plans for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a 1970 version of Spa in the coming updates for Automobilista 2.
On Friday (28th October), Reiza Studios posted a development update on their forums regarding Automobilista 2‘s future endeavors. Coming off of the release of v1.4.1 in August, the Reiza team is working on the remainder of the updates through the end of 2022, and that will include new content.
Oval racing is the new thing for AMS2. While the release of Racin’ USA Pt 3 is still delayed to this point, somewhat due to licensing issues with the Formula USA 2022 IndyCar, tracks like the Daytona oval, WWT Raceway and Auto Club Speedway brought the flair of turning left into the fold for all users for now.
When the DLC pt3 pack does finally release, those tracks will be put behind the paid content wall. While it doesn’t look like the IndyCar issue will be resolved in time for the release, it was unveiled that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval will be an additional piece to the pack, hopefully by release time.
It looks, from the screenshots in the update post, that the Indy Road Course will also be included. That won’t be the only road course coming in the near future, however. Spa-Francorchamps, which AMS2 recently added the 2022 version to the fold, will also have a historic 1970 edition of the track added.
This retro venue will be a part of the Spa DLC pack that already exists on Steam for $9.99 normally.
That pack already includes the new 2022 scan as well as the previous 2020 scan and a 1993 version which includes a double chicane bus stop. It was originally supposed to be a 1960s layout, but they could more accurately depict a 1970s edition.
Other tidbits from the dev update include what’s ahead for the upcoming release of v1.4.3. Many future additions include a new car for all users, a Corvette C4 GTP from the 1980s, dedicated car variants for oval racing, helmet livery customization and further physics, AI and damage model tweaks.
All the details can be found in the Reiza Studios forums. Their dev logs will also be shifting towards every other month, as it was this time around, so they say to expect the next one of these in December. When it drops, we’ll let you know what the next update has included in the changelog.
