Default Volvo - The Game (Free racing sim)

This forum gets the other video game related stuff with the GT4 time attacks, so I'm posting it here. I don't know where else it should go under this new "easy to use" forum format... so mods, feel free to move it elsewhere

Long story short, free game sponsored by Volvo, developed by SimBin (makers of GTR2, Race 07, etc). Two tracks, Gothenburg and Kiev, Ukraine... and various Volvos from their years of manufacturing and racing. Key word here: FREE. And now Simbin's explanation.

The fresh and exiting Volvo S60 Concept headlines the car line up and will be accompanied by several well known Volvo race cars. The players will be able to hammer this variety of Volvo cars around two highly detailed and realistic tracks.

As in all games developed by SimBin this game will deliver a great experience in sound and detail with a fun and challenging game as a cherry on the cake. The game comes with three difficulty levels to appeal to a broad audience, from new comer to the experienced gamer.

The racing game announced in April by Volvo Cars and game development company SimBin can be played with five racing legends in addition to the new Volvo S60 Concept. They are Volvo models that many people will remember from the STCC and BTCC racing series.

Players will be able to choose between the Volvo C30 which is competing in this year's STCC ( Swedish Touring Car Championship), the STCC Volvo S60 that participated a few years ago, the Volvo S40 that participated with notable success in the BTCC (the British Touring Car Championship) the Volvo 850, the estate car that became a legend in the BTCC, and finally a true racing classic, the iconic Volvo 240 Turbo Group A.

There is a choice of two tracks: Gothenburg Eco Drive Arena in Göteborg, Sweden, and Chayaka outside Kiev in the Ukraine. Volvo - The Game is the only virtual racing game in the world to include this Ukrainian track.

The game offers a choice of skill levels: "novice with all the driver assistance technology activated such as ABS brakes, "semi-pro", and finally "pro" where there is no assistance whatsoever.

Footnote: Volvo - The Game can be downloaded free of charge to your own PC starting on May 26. Go to the Volvo Cars website, www.volvocars.com/intl The game is available in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
Go to the Volvo S60 concept page, skip past the intro, and it will have a link to download: http://www.volvocars.com/intl/All-Ca...60concept.aspx
