Acura’s "Beat That" Game Is A Sure-Fire Way To Go Through a Day Without Doing Anything Else
Owing to the success of its Less Talk, More Drive commercial, Acura has released a new mobile racing game called Beat That. The game is free-to-play on desktop and mobile devices, and it allows gamers to race in six unique race tracks using one of the six Acura vehicles that were featured in the television commercial.
In addition to being available on desktop and mobile devices, Beat That can also be accessed on the Facebook Instant Games platform. It may not be as comprehensive of a racing game as Gran Turismo Sport or Forza Horizon 4, but Beat That offers its own thrills, including the chance to play it on-the-go.
The new re-imagined Acura NSX made its debut just yesterday and it is already the star in a video for Gran Turismo 5, joined by the original NSX. This isn’t exactly an official confirmation of the future sports car’s entrance into the gaming world, but it’s a pretty solid hint. Think of it this way: The same thing happened with the recently launched Toyota GT 86 and it is now being offered in the 2.02 update of GT5.
The Acura NSX Concept previews the future NSX supercar and presents the first application of Acura’s innovative new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) system. This system combines a unique 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system that allows the car to instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering. Throw in Acura’s next generation VTEC 3.5-liter V6 with direct-injection and a dual clutch transmission with a built-in electric motor, and you’re looking at a future production car with insane capabilities and killer style.
