    Can't wait for the day you need to buy each track as DLC, and maybe teams too if you wanna use them: so you start has HAAS or Williams and if you want any other team, buy it! :D

    The inevitable outcry on the internet and the inevitable response from ea that gamers take pride on their grinding! Only 2000 hours to unlock Ferrari for free !

    RT in racing games is a complete and utter waste of time.
    Assetto Corsa Competizione new that its why they removed it.

    I mean in game when you're doing 200mph i doubt you'd see any RT but in menus and in the pits and stuff you might be able to see RT effects.

    What is way coop will be used? Like better player pushes ahead and weaker player in team tries to cause massive crash in last lap?

    I'd be amazed if Fifa doesn't get RT this year.

    As long as they get DLSS + the AMD equivalent at the same time, I'm all for raytracing all the things.

    I have strange feeling that they will not wait with DLSS+DXR till AMD releases their solution. And they have no reason to wait.

    Iracing is a complete different animal. Its not even comparable, especial in being considered DLC. Everything is 100% laser scanned and built with the true help of the races, teams, and sanctioning bodies. Its not a basic sim either. There are actual sponsored race series, and they win up to $50,000 in those.
    You buy what you want. Race what you want. I know, well because I race on Iracing.

    That's an opinion. And mine says it's not.

    It's not the only game with laser scanned tracks though, and quite a few other sims get help from race teams as well.

    Just chipping in to say that Codemasters was terrible even before the EA acquisition. Check DiRT 2.0.

    As ever EA pushed prices up to 500% around the word again. Mostly 3 times up! That's mentally insane.
