After an initial testing period that began way back in June and went into final testing last month, Studio 397 have now fully deployed their new “RaceControl” multiplayer system to the public version of the software.

The new system includes a ranking system, daily scheduled races, special events, in-game paid server hosting (free hosting is also still available) and more. They really have done a great job with this, and rFactor 2 has long-deserved this kind of developmental milestone.

Beta trailer (gives you an idea still of what the public non-beta build brings):
