After reading the comments you’ve made in the SHIFT2 UNLEASHED posts, it’s obvious that a lot of you want to know more about the realism and physics that you can expect in the game. Rather than trying to respond to each of you, we decided to produce a video that summarises some of the major technical improvements you can expect to see.
I’ve been working on this video for the past month, and hopefully it gives you an idea of how far the game engineers have gone to create an authentic ‘mirror image’ of real racing. Of course, there’s only so much you can cram into a video, so some cool insights – such as modelling a driver’s neck movements, along with the weight of his head and helmet, to create the helmet-cam POV – ended up on the cutting room floor.
And for those who want to know more about the wheels, stay tuned for a post in the near future!
