Official Game

Le Mans Ultimate is the official game of the FIA World Endurance Championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans. Play-out the exciting new era for sportscar racing. Le Mans Ultimate offers an immersive game for both seasoned sim racers and those new to the sport and genre, growing and evolving with the real-life FIA WEC series. Seven circuits and 12 cars will be available from day one with over 100 different livery variations.

Hypercars

Drive the latest manufacturer Hypercars from the incredible 2023 centenary season – bristling with the latest technology. Recreate tantalising on track battles between Toyota, Ferrari, Porsche, Cadillac, Peugeot, Glickenhaus and Vanwall. Lead the attack for the privateers or join the automotive giants as you fight for victory.
Alongside the Hypercars comes a competitive array of classes. Lock horns in wheel-to-wheel LMP2 competition as well as the ultra-close, thunderous GTE cars.

Manufacturer Support

Le Mans Ultimate uses the industry leading physics and handling simulation DNA from pMotor 2.5 as used and improved from rFactor2 – and builds upon that foundation.

Studio 397 has worked closely with the manufacturers to bring the most authentic cars to the grid, working from CAD, data, technical drawings, meticulous in person photography and sound files – the cars featured in Le Mans Ultimate are the most accurate models in look, performance and sound in any sim racing title.

Real Road

Le Mans Ultimate will use an advancement in Real Road 2.0 track evolution simulation found uniquely in Studio 397 titles. Like a real race session, the track will begin as a green, relatively gripless circuit at the start of a weekend and rubber in as more cars pass over the racing line – with cars moving the dust, dirt and marbles off-line. Work is being undertaken in several areas, including the dynamic weather effects too, such as rainfall and debris on windscreens and more realistic flow of water and formation of puddles on the circuit. The cars will also evolve with the race, and the build-up of dirt and debris will cover the car – giving it the authentic weathered, endurance look.

Circuits

Enjoy the pulsating challenge of racing around some of the most revered circuits in the world including the seven destinations on the 2023 calendar: Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Sebring International Raceway, Bahrain International Circuit, Algarve International Circuit (Portimão), Fuji Speedway and the legendary – Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans – the playground for the ultimate racing experience.

Online

For those looking for the edge of the seat, wheel-to-wheel competition against real-life drivers, the Online function, powered by RaceControl, will be home to that pulsating challenge. At launch, racers will be able to take part in ranked Daily Races, running regularly throughout the day. This will provide the opportunity to build the player’s Driver and Safety rankings – in the future, this will offer up further opportunities, as the player unlocks higher ranked races and exclusive events when the game develops and grows alongside the real-life FIA World Endurance Championship.

Race Weekend

Racing game fans will start their Le Mans Ultimate journey in either Offline Race Weekend or Online. Race Weekend will provide the perfect place to start for any driver, as they select a player profile of Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced according to their sim racing experience.
This area of play will be the chance to get to grips with the exotic machinery, refine car set-up and learn the circuits while formulating your own FIA WEC race weekend – taking part in Practice, Qualifying and the main Race – adjusting the time of day, session duration and weather conditions to your liking.

In your hands

The game will have improved controller support as well as a selectable difficulty level – to allow the player to determine their own skill level with help for first timers allowing adjustable assists. Additionally, language localisation is available for English, French, Italian, German and Spanish speakers. Concise and clear user interface (UI), easy to understand heads up display (HUD) and broadcast style track elements are also features of the game and will immerse the player in the official FIA WEC and Le Mans experience.
