The world of esports is abuzz with the news of the upcoming release of Rennsport, a GT3-based simulator game. While the game is still in development, the closed Beta has been pushed back and the final release date remains shrouded in mystery. However, the publicity from the Rennsport ‘Summit 1’ last year and the ongoing ESL R1 competition has shown to the world that the codebase is playable, and workable enough to be used for esports.
This has led to some confusion amongst sim racing community members as to why GT3 cars are the only cars available. However, the Rennsport CEO Morris Hebecker has confirmed that there will be more than just GT3 cars available in the game. Hebecker has said that there will be futuristic cars, historic cars, and open wheelers available, as well as non-German car manufacturers.
The challenge at this point is that visual representations of these other vehicles aren’t present yet. As we head through the rest of 2023, we await with bated breath to see these additional car types which will make the critique of Rennsport being ‘another GT3 sim’ a distant memory.
Rennsport is set to be an exciting new addition to the esports world, with a wide range of cars, from GT3 to open wheelers, and from German car manufacturers to non-German car manufacturers. With the promise of a legalised modding scene, Rennsport is sure to be a hit amongst the sim racing community. Keep an eye out for the release of Rennsport in 2023, as it is sure to be a game changer in the world of esports.
