WTCC Race Trailer and Steam Pre-Order Discount Available

Eidos and SimBin have released a new video trailer for their upcoming WTCC RACE game. It shows off some gameplay and features footage of the Macau circuit. You can download the 11MB trailer from the official Race site or grab it from my local mirror (right click save-as). I also uploaded the trailer to Youtube for people that want to check it out without having to download it.

I'm sure most sim racers have heard the news that "RACE: The Official WTCC Game" will be available via Valve Software's Steam digital distribution network on November 24, 2006. People that pre-order will receive a 10% discount, bringing the price down to $40.45 plus applicable tax. If you're not a fan of Steam, the game will also be available from GoGamer on December 1, 2006. I found the Race demo a little underwhelming but I have a feeling the game will feature some great racing with a full grid of cars on the track. I'll be grabbing it from Steam as soon as it's available and I'll probably post some impressions along with plenty of screenshots.

11/22/2006 Update: Just a quick update regarding Steam. The service now allows people to purchase games via PayPal. For those of you purchasing the game through Steam, you can now download the WTCC Race manual from their website in pdf format.
