Racing games have to feel as realistic as possible nowadays, which is even more important when it comes to authentic engine- and tiresounds.
For Need for Speed the audio engineers drove a BMW i8 over the Ebisu Circuit, to record with the electric engine the most realistic tire-sounds, without being drowned by the sounds of a fuel-powered engine.
You can read about that and sound recordings of other cars in the new article at Speedhunters:
Need for Speed will feature the BMW M2 Coupé, which will celebrate its video game debut. The model will be released in April 2016, but players can already drive it in Need for Speed in November 2015.
The BMW M2 Coupé represents the successor of the historical BMW 1 Series M Coupé. With its 6-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive, the BMW M2 Coupé sets new benchmarks in terms of driving dynamics and agility. Moreover, the consistent use of iconic M design elements contributes to its expressive design and authentic M appearance. With an engine output of 272 kW (370 hp) and a maximum torque of 500 Nm, this car is a power pack, letting you know the true promise of ultimate driving pleasure!
