22 Racing Series Update Adds New Visual & Modding Capabilities

GOATi Entertainment’s 22 Racing Series has been in early access development on Steam for just over a year. Offering optional VR support, the team has just released a new update for 22 Racing Series focused on improving the graphics and modding options.

When it comes to visuals, 22 Racing Series will have a more streamlined gameplay experience with support from Intel’s XeSS Super Sampling technology. Additionally, AI-enhanced upscaling will allow for higher resolutions and higher FPS.

For all you track creators out there, the RaceHub features a bunch of new track profiles like Quarter Tube and Offset Quarter Tube. Then there are the new texture sets, over 75 of them, and the ability to change the time of day. For newbies, there’s a refined tutorial to take you through the basics.
