Zynga’s CSR Racing 2 Puts Android Players in the Driver’s Seat of Coveted Supercars With Google’s ARCore
Google’s Augmented Reality Platform Brings to Life 3D Dream Cars and New Interactive Functions in CSR2
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 16, 2018– Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq:ZNGA), a leading social game developer, today announced the launch of an Android Augmented Reality (AR) Mode for CSR Racing 2 (CSR2),the world’s most popular mobile Racing game. Starting today, CSR2 Android players can experience an interactive world that brings to life the virtual cars of their dreams from iconic auto manufacturers, such as Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche, within real-world environments.
CSR2’s new Google ARCore powered AR Mode enables players to explore every aspect of their dream car, including opening the doors, hoods and trunks; experimenting with spoiler options; inspecting the engine and stepping inside their computer generated vehicle. Players can experience their dream vehicles in AR in life-size or model scale, and place their car virtually in real-world environments. Additionally, CSR2’s AR Mode allows players to layer reflections on their vehicle by applying a selection of reflection cubemaps – making for a more authentic and realistic experience.
“CSR2 Android players have been craving this kind of in-game interaction with the supercars they love, and we’re delighted to give them the ability to virtually bring their dream car collection off the mobile screen and into their driveways,” said Julian Widdows, Vice President of CSR2. “With the help of Google’s ARCore technology, we’re now able to satisfy the very real desire of CSR2 fans to have their favorite supercars like the BMW M2 Competition, Porsche 911 or Lamborghini Huracan sitting in their driveway.”
Since launching in June 2016, CSR2 has innovated in the mobile Racing category – delivering the most authentic vehicle and drag racing experience to car lovers around the world. The team partners closely with the auto manufacturers featured in-game, ensuring every vehicle is expertly recreated – from the paint colors and finishes to interior leather colors and wheel rims.
