Shortly after the start of this year’s Red Bull Air Race World Championship in Abu Dhabi, the official game based off the tournament has received a huge update. Red Bull Air Race, available for free through the App Store, now offers all eight aerial racetracks on three continents, new tournaments with prizes, and more brand-new game content.
The new location in Chiba, Japan is now available as part of the single-player campaign, where all game pilots can experience every single race in the current world championship. The racetrack located in Japan, which is an official venue in the series for the first time, has been identically rendered in the game. All in all, there are over 140 events across racing classes Exhibition, Challenger, Master, and Super.
Seen as how the game was updated for the current Red Bull Air Race World Championship 2015, scores from last season have been reset just like during the real tournament. Players who made in-game purchases be reimbursed and receive an additional bonus, to equip themselves for the new season. Another part of the update includes the Airplane Shop, players can now purchase their own aircraft or buy a new racer from 16 aircraft across four different classes.
