About rFactor 2

About this game

Drive fast cars in rFactor 2 from Studio 397!

Comprehensive Realistic Racing Simulation

rFactor 2, a product by Studio 397, is an extendable and realistic racing simulation game that stands at the forefront of race customization, graphics, and multiplayer gaming. It offers an unparalleled single and multiplayer experience, with features like mixed class road racing, ultra-realistic dynamics, immersive sound environment and stunning graphics. The game supports a full day-night cycle and dynamic weather conditions, such as rain that evolves into puddles over time. Moreover, it also accommodates 24-hour endurance events and driver swaps in multiplayer mode. The game's customizability extends to adding new tracks and cars, and various add-ons are available online.

Advanced Features for an Immersive Gaming Experience

The game boasts of advanced multi-core CPU technology and an updated tyre model, among other physics-related features. The driving surface construction, including the painted line thickness, influences grip levels. rFactor 2 also offers an enriched dynamic racing experience featuring real-time day/night lighting transitions and realistic wet/dry weather transitions. Tyres sustain damage from poor driving or setups, affecting grip immediately and over time. The graphics and sound have been refined to enhance the gaming experience, with features like projected headlights for night-time driving, open VR support for multiple headsets, and an updated sound engine.

User-Friendly Gameplay and Open Architecture

rFactor 2 introduces a new AI, who will race for and defend positions, with races that can be lap-based, time-based, or both. The vehicle upgrade system affects both the appearance and performance of a vehicle. The game's open architecture supports modder-created content, allows for fully adjustable Showroom, UI and HUD layouts. It offers easy-to-use customizable multi-language support and rules to simulate different types of racing. It also includes more than 35 free and paid licensed cars and tracks, including brands like Silverstone, Renault, Formula E, McLaren, Mercedes, and Bentley. The game has been used in hundreds of esports championships worldwide, notably McLaren's World's Fastest Gamer and Formula E.

rFactor 2 just doesn't work, in so many terrible ways. First off the new and "improved" UI won't download base content if you've never installed the game before. You have to use the beta old_ui setting to get content to download. On top of that the game doesn't recognize any steering input on my Fanatec CSW V1 even though the game recognizes I have one and offers to load a preset. Even trying to manually set the steering input doesn't work, rF2 just doesn't recognize steering input. (My wheel works in every single other sim/simcade I play so it's definitely a bug in rF2.) Oh, and sometimes you're stuck in your car looking up at the sky. I guess that's because rF2 knows you won't be able to play it so you might as well just stare off into the sky sipping a cool Arnold Palmer while forlornly wishing the game would work. And finally rFactor, the company, refuses to answer support requests. So, in conclusion: Do. Not. Buy.
