CSR Racing 2 originally released on Android back in June of 2016. It's now over two years later, and the game is still running strong. But in order to keep fans happy over the years, new features have to roll out, and so Zynga has just announced a significant update to the game that adds sixteen new cars that span from the '60s to today. So if you have a hankering for collecting iconic vehicles, make sure to check out the new Legends update.
The changes brought by the CSR Racing 2 Legends update are pretty significant. Not only are there sixteen new cars to collect, restore, and customize, but there is a further goal that can only be achieved once the first fifteen cars are fully restored. If you can reach that point, then you will unlock the sixteenth car, the McLaren F1. You can also expect to find plenty of other new additions, which are detailed below.
- Collect some of the most essential cars from the 1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s to ever grace the road.
- Restore the classics in the brand-new Legends workshop and transform them to pristine condition.
- Place fully restored virtual cars into real-world environments and get a 360-degree view with CSR2’s next generation augmented reality experience, AR Mode.
- Compete against the modern day titans of racing in exhilarating multiplayer action.
- Battle in Daily Legends Cups and rule the leaderboard with your masterful driving skills.
- Use your roster of legendary cars to take down a brand new single player campaign.
- Prove yourself worthy of owning the ultimate classic ride, the beloved McLaren F1, by restoring 15 legendary cars to the highest standards.
The launch of Legends is the most significant feature release for CSR Racing 2 to date. I would imagine such a notable update will help to retain existing players while also attracting new players to the game. Mobile drag racers may now be a dime a dozen on the Play Store, but there is no doubt that the CSR Racing series had a lot to do with that, which is why it's nice to see new content pushed out to the aging racer.
Today, Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a leading social game developer, announced the launch of Legends, its biggest feature release to date in the world’s most popular mobile drag racing game, CSR Racing 2 (CSR2). Legends allows players to virtually experience restoring, customizing, and racing 16 legendary vehicles with superior power and performance, including the McLaren F1, Lamborghini Countach, Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, and Pontiac GTO “The Judge.” These unforgettable icons, spanning the 1960s to late 2000s, will be brought back to their former glory and placed into direct competition with CSR2’s fleet of contemporary cars.
“True legends live forever and the cars we idolized in our youth stick with us throughout our lives”
“True legends live forever and the cars we idolized in our youth stick with us throughout our lives,” said Julian Widdows, Vice President of CSR2. “Our design team worked closely with our automotive manufacturing partners to select Legends cars that made their mark through quality engineering, meticulous design, and cultural cache, allowing players to transport themselves into the driver’s seat of these adored dream cars only in CSR2.”
The new CSR2 Legends feature will ramp over time as players work towards the ultimate goal of unlocking the McLaren F1, considered to be one of the finest supercars ever produced, by first restoring and racing 15 different Legends cars. Brand new feature mechanics and multiplayer competitions, including the Daily Legends Cups, keeps drivers engaged as they get closer to the supreme triumph of adding the McLaren F1 to their virtual garage.
From the palm of their hands, players experience the true-to-life details of the McLaren F1, from its distinct central steering setup to its beautiful aerodynamic curves. In addition to the Lamborghini Countach, Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, and Pontiac GTO “The Judge,” fan favorites including the Plymouth Hemi® Cuda, Chevrolet Corvette (C3) ZR1, and the Shelby Cobra-427 S/C are accessible to players starting today.
