New Race Driver: Create & Race Details

Due out this summer exclusively for the Nintendo DS, Race Driver: Create & Race is set to redefine portable racing in a major way. As Codemasters has just revealed, Race Driver: Create & Race will feature a robust track designer tool set enabling players to build their own race tracks using the DS stylus to place set pieces bit by bit or draw a track from scratch with the free draw tool. Once a track has been designed, players can take a dynamic 3D tour of their creation or go for a test drive on it to make sure the layout is on point. Then once everything is completed players can invite up to three other friends to race on their custom race circuits online via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, with single-card game sharing to boot.

“Once you’ve conquered the 32 in-game tracks, which include Silverstone, Bathhurst, Nurburgring, then Create & Race players can really challenge themselves and their friends with a never-ending number of track combinations,” said Jamie Firth, Producer of Race Driver: Create & Race at Codemasters. There’s nothing sweeter than inviting up to three friends to race on your very own track… and owning them on it!”

Accompanying the new details, we also have screenshots to share showing off the track designer and some in-game racing:
