How to get a Bugatti Chiron in CSR Racing 2

If you've been playing CSR Racing 2 since launch, you've probably got yourself a pretty nice garage by now. Just reaching and participating in Tier 5 races means you've been privileged to drive one of the premier supercars in existence, vehicles sporting prestigious names like Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Still, if you really want to be at the wheel of the freshest thing on four wheels, you'll need to aim even higher. We're talking about the Bugatti Chiron, a car so luxurious and exclusive that you have to be rich (the price tag is over $2.5 million) and know someone (less than 500 came from the factory in the initial production run) to own one.

And yet real car enthusiasts could if they would. The Chiron boasts an insane 1,500 HP engine, capable of sending the car from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. It's so powerful that the car actually has an engine limiter said to keep its top speed at 261 mph. Yes, you read that right.

So how can you get your hands on one in CSR Racing 2? There are two ways to nab one within the next few weeks.

CSR Racing 2 update: What you need to know about new cars, Live Race revamp and more

CSR Racing 2 was already plenty good. With stunning graphics, enough different game modes to keep people coming back, and actual multiplayer races, Naturalmotion gave gearheads something that was worth the wait.

Could it be even better, though? Most mobile games can be, and the developers have been up to more than just adding new cars to the game -- though there's been some of that too. The latest update for CSR Racing 2tinkers with the gameplay in a couple of areas and even may affect what's in your garage. We opened up the throttle to take a look.

Drive into the Evolution of Jaguar in Real Racing 3

You've been able to race just about everything in Real Racing 3 since it first hit mobile three years ago. Yet Firemonkeys and EA keep managing to get more vehicles in the game, finding new ways to keep drivers coming back for more.

The game's latest update is called Evolution of Jaguar, and as the name suggests, it explores the rich history of one of the automotive industry's most iconic luxury car manufacturers. It brings with it not just a chance to win Jaguar vehicles to drive in the game -- though you certainly can do that, with a chance to win three different models -- but three other new cars from the likes of Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Dodge as well.

A three-part Jaguar Legacy Quest is interspersed with three other limited time events that start now and run through September 18. Let's break them down:

Big Bang Racing guide: tips, tricks, and hints

Big Bang Racing isn't your average racing game. For one thing, you don't even start the game able to race.

You're also not trying to beat anyone by going fast in a straight line. Anything but, actually, as you learn to make your way through physics-defying courses of every kind that can send you backwards, upside-down, and through all manners of strange obstacles before you get to the finish.

Oh, and did we mention that the courses were designed by other players?

It can be a little tough getting your bearings in a game like this, but that's why we're here. Take a ride through out Big Bang Racing guide and we'll give you all the tips, tricks, and hints you need to have the basics down pat.

CSR Racing 2: How to master Live Races

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 27th, 2016

Getting better at racing the AI in CSR Racing 2 is a pretty straightforward process. You run enough races with a particular car to get its shift timing down, continually improve it by buying upgrades whenever you can, and add any fusion parts you grab along the way.

Tuning adds another dimension to the whole affair, but not enough to significantly throw you off course. If you just keep plowing ahead, you'll be able to take down all the crews in the game eventually and figure out what happened to your friends' stolen cars.

The Live Race mode, however, is a different beast. In contrast to some other mobile racing games, it provides CSR Racing 2 with a true multiplayer experience, allowing you to race head to head with a live human opponent at any time (or at least any time the servers are functioning properly).

It might not seem like there are all that many ways to go fast in a straight line, but CSR Racing 2 begs to differ.

The follow-up to CSR Racing has proven to be a hit for NaturalMotion and Zynga, bringing high production values and a few gameplay wrinkles to a winning drag racing formula. As players work their way up through five tiers of increasingly difficult competition in search of fame, fortune, and more expensive cars, their skills are put to the test in several different ways.

This racing game sure looks great, but its lack of substance and free-to-play mechanics make it a bit of a drag.

CSR Racing 2 complete vehicle list: How to get every car

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on July 3rd, 2016

In CSR Racing 2, you're only as cool as your garage. NaturalMotion and Zynga stocked their new drag racing title with an imprssive selection of top notch vehicles, enough to ever make Jay Leno envious if they were all in one real life collection.

But it's one thing to talk about all the sweet rides in CSR2 and another to actually be able to grab them for yourself. With two dozen manufacturers represented and cars spread across five different tiers, there's a lot of work to do to collect them all.

How to get more cars in CSR Racing 2

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on June 30th, 2016

NaturalMotion and Zynga brought a lot of real life cars to the table for CSR Racing 2. From souped up everyday rides made by Nissan and Hyundai to supercars produced by the likes of McLaren and Pagani, there really is something for everyone.

Naturally, the first question a lot of gamers have about a title like this is, "How many cars on there?" That's generally followed closely by another: "How do I get my hands on them?"

CSR Racing 2, or CSR2, as it likes to call itself, has finally arrived. The follow-up to the immensely popular drag racing game CSR Racing is the first release from NaturalMotion since the studio's acquisition by Zynga in early 2014.

That takes care of the "why you should care" part. Along with what NaturalMotion is calling "beyond console quality" visuals, CSR Racing 2tinkers with the formula of its predecessor just enough to stake out some of its own turf.
