Invictus Games to Release Official Race of Champions Game in October

The official Race Of Champions mobile racing game comes to Android in late October, giving gamers but a few weeks to prepare for the annual event.  Okay, so you won’t actually be driving in the real knockout racing tournament but you get the point.

Players will find a variety of cars and tracks with multiple modes to compete against themselves and friends. Feel like you have enough to take on Michael Schumacher?  Prove it by racing against actual participating champions and their real times!

We imagine the game will employ a tactic similar to the one used for the real Race of Champions in that cars and drivers are swapped out after each heat.

State of the art official Race Of Champions mobile racing game coming to iOS and Android mobile devices.

Fans of the yearly Race Of Champions event and race game fans in general can look forward to what specialists see as the most technologically advanced racing game on mobile platforms.

IMP, organisers of the Race Of Champions, have concluded an agreement to co-publish a state of the art racing game together with racing game specialist Invictus. The game, to be launched October ahead of the 2011 ROC event held in December in Düsseldorf, will be available on iTunes and Android app stores.

The game will include tracks and cars from different editions of the renowned event with tarmac and off-road racing. The different game modes will let players compete against friends and challenge players to beat the times of the actual participating champions.

Fredrik Johnsson of IMP “In line with our overall media strategy we are delighted to also be pushing the envelope with our exclusive game. Invictus have managed to produce the most advanced graphics seen on these new platforms resulting in a stunningly faithful representation of our event.”

Tamas Kozak of Invictus “We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with the Race Of Champions franchise, the concept of the event provides us with the basis for a highly original race game concept which combined with our custom built racing technology will provide racing fans with a truly unique experience.”

About the Race Of Champions:

  • The Race Of Champions is a knockout tournament where the world’s greatest drivers battle to prove they’re the fastest on Earth.
  • Through a series of head-to-head races in identical cars on a parallel track, the stars fight it out to prove they have what it takes to be crowned ‘Champion of Champions’.
  • Cars are swapped round between heats to ensure all drivers have to prove themselves in a variety of machinery.
  • For the racers, then, there’s no place to hide. It’s a knockout tournament so mistakes prove terminal – and the drivers have to prove themselves in a variety of vehicles. But there’s no blaming the machinery because everyone gets the same kit. Put simply, the best driver will win.

That’s why the likes of Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button come back year on year.
