GUANGZHOU, China – (July 12) – NetEase Games, the online games division of NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES, HKEX: 9999) and Codemasters have announced that the third beta test for Racing Master will begin in Canada on July 13 at 10pm EDT/7pm PDT. The beta will be available on Google Play at launch, allowing Android users to dive into the game. 

Racing Master is an upcoming real-time racing simulator, with a focus on providing the most realistic racing experience possible. Racing Master has been brought to life by Codemasters, the company behind classic racing franchises like DIRT and GRID. Codemasters has teamed up with NetEase Games to turn Racing Master into the most realistic racing experience to date on smart devices. These are some of the features that players can expect to see in the third beta for Racing Master:

Realistic Racing Experience

Racing Master brings its cars and tracks to life with stunning graphics and precise controls, providing an immersive racing experience to players. This is possible thanks to Codemasters’ EGO tech and Unreal Engine 4, which create cars that look, control, and sound as real to life as possible. 

Freely Modify & Customize Cars

Players can freely modify and customize close to 100 licensed cars. The cars are fully customizable, with players able to tweak their performance, design their paint and decals, and modify them with a body kit, allowing them to create their ideal vehicle for the races ahead.

Race Against Real Players!


Racing Master is a game about challenging human players in high-octane races, and not AI-controlled bots. Players can race against each other on tracks inspired by real locations, to see who is worthy of taking home the gold. Players can also form teams with their friends and win races together!

Acquire A Massive Collection Of Nearly 100 Licensed Cars


At launch, Racing Master will have nearly 100 licensed cars for players to collect, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, and Porsches!

Racing Master players in Canada will be among the last players to influence the future of the game before launch, as Racing Master is going to have a soft launch in various territories in 2022. Players across the world have helped shape the game through beta tests, with a vibrant community that has made its voice heard, allowing the developers to shape Racing Master into the ultimate racing experience. Players in Canada won’t have long to wait until they are behind the wheel in Racing Master, for the next big race before launch.

The third beta test for Racing Master will begin in Canada on July 13 at 10pm EDT/7pm PDT. To learn more about Racing Master, visit:
