Volvo – The Game – Click above for gameplay videos

Starting grids, chicanes, kerbs and locking up the brakes diving into hairpins make you think of what car brand? Of course, Volvo. As promised, Volvo - The Game has been released today for free download for PC only - sorry Mac lovers (a group that probably includes a lot of Volvo owners...). Developed by SimBin, the game offers six Volvo models for turns on two tracks: the Eco Drive Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden and the Chayka track in Kiev, Ukraine.

When you're good enough to p0wn both those tracks and you tire of beating yourself, you can enter the Global Competition and go against Mad Swedish Maxes from around the world. But you better hurry - the first global competition begins today and runs until June 9 on the Eco Arena. The next one goes from June 10 to June 24. First prize for winning the global comp is a set of Pirelli tires up to 18 inches.

You can check out two gameplay videos and a development video after the jump, and download it yourself at the link below.

      SimBin = quality. Usually their games are hard as hell, let's see how this one is.

      Game downloaded fine. Worked with keyboard but with very coarse control. Detected my Flight Sim yoke, but controls for my flight Pedals (yes I fly too) over rode the yoke. Therefore no steering. Unplugged the Pedals and got steering back. No breaks. Could not get it into gear (zero mph). No help file or instructions. Nice graphics but until I can get my controls working, it unusable.

      free download for PC only – sorry Mac lovers (ironically, a group that we susspect probably includes a lot of Volvo owners...)

      Just make sure a Subaru simulator is available and that will get the other half of the Mac owners.

      "When you're good enough to p0wn both those tracks and you tire of beating yourself,"

      Isn't owning a Volvo enough like masturbation?

      ;)

      Downloading now. I hope this isn't like M3 Challenge from BMW where you can't turn a small corner above 50 kph if your life depended on it.
