French gaming giant Eden Games has announced the launch of ‘Gear Club’, a driving game three years in the making which is now available to download for free in the Apple App Store.
Gear Club is said to be the most advanced and realistic mobile-centric driving game ever, featuring fully simulated engines, powertrains, suspensions and aerodynamics, as players can collect, upgrade and customize their cars within their own performance shop.
“We individually simulate every mechanical element relevant to how a car behaves,” explains Eden Games founder David Nadal. “Fidelity is key and we are proud that our game engine can reproduce subtle nuances that a true car fan will be able to feel. In Gear.Club every car behaves differently; some are more agile, some understeer. This is quite rare, if not unique, in the mobile space. Furthermore, all the data you see in the game is in line with reality.”
Eden Games has already achieved success in the past with titles such as the V-Rally franchise, Need for Speed: Porsche and Test Drive Unlimited – three titles absolutely adored by lots of fans in the past.
In order to achieve a high level of realism within Gear Club, the team at Eden Games worked closely with car manufacturers so that they could ensure the original spirit of each car is upheld.
“When manufacturers see the respect we have for their products and how meticulous we are, we can establish a very constructive dialog. Cars is our religion and I think this transpires when they talk to us, which is why they trust us as much as they do,” added Nadal.
Gear Club is available now for iPhone and iPad users, with pre-registrations open for Android users.
