Gear Club Unlimited 2 - Tracks Edition DLC Brings Sim-Like Racing And Le Mans To Switch Soon
The Switch-exclusive racer is getting a new release that will include a new campaign focused on providing a more realistic racing experience.
A new edition of Gear Club Unlimited 2, the Switch exclusive racer, is releasing later this year. Gear Club Unlimited 2 - Tracks Edition will launch on August 25, and it'll introduce new tracks, features, and a campaign focused on providing an experience closer to real motorsport than what the original release offered. It will also feature all the content and DLC released for the base game so far.
One of the big additions is the 24 hours of Le Mans circuit, which players will be able to compete across from the qualifying session through to the final event. How this will actually work in-game isn't clear yet--we're not sure whether you'll need to run your Switch for 24 hours straight--but it will include pit stops, tire changing, fuel management, and other strategy options that were not available in the original release.
You can watch a teaser trailer for the new Tracks Edition of the racer below.
Four other tracks are being added alongside Le Mans, as well as five new cars. The Ford GT40 MK I, Nissan GT-R LM Nismo, Porsche 919 Hybrid, Mercedes AMG GT3, and Bentley Continental GT3-R and being added, while 13 cars from the original will also have their "motorsport" versions unlocked.
Along with a new motorsport-focused Endurance Championship campaign, the game is also adding a new time attack mode, and leaderboards for every track and car combination.
Microids has confirmed to GameSpot that all of these features will be available to owners of Gear Club Unlimited 2 as DLC, so you won't need to buy the game again to access this content. Pricing details are not available as of yet, though.
