Project Torque Relaunching as “Heat Online” Beta Begins Mid August
Project Torque from Aeria Games is shutting down on August 2, 2010. We announced this news a week or so ago, but fans of the game need not worry anymore. Since Aeria Games is shutting down their service of the game, a company called Innologin LTD is relaunching Project Torque as “Heat Online” and the open beta for this racing MMO is scheduled to begin mid-august. Players likely will NOT be able to transfer their characters and equipment over to the new service, as Innologin has told me that their version of “Project Torque” will be a bit different than the one Aeria Games published. Make no mistake though, “Heat Online” is the same game as “Project Torque” just with a few different things. Just as the Gamigo version (called Level-R) was a bit different than the Aeria Games version, Heat Online will offer a few different features.

About the game
Players can race against thousands of fellow players across the streets of Tokyo, on the racetracks of Germany or the Hungarian and Mexican off-road tracks, in the English countryside, on the rooftops of Shanghai and many more.
The game developer, Invictus’ latest game engine offers a realistic real-time damage model. The vehicles are user-customizable both in appearance and performance. Racers win points with racing, they can buy items in-game and tune their ride.
This game does not require professional driving skills; we’d like to see players having fun!
It is FREE TO DOWNLOAD and FREE TO PLAY. It means there is NO subscription fee. Almost all items in the item mall are available for free (for points earned by playing the game) but players can also get them fast for real money what Innologin spend on improving the service and the game further.
Players can try new game modes like SUMO with cars in the Open Beta. Furthermore, players will have the usual race mode on circuit tracks, street racing, drift mode with drift cars, stock car racing mode with specialized tracks and more to come later…
