Williams Presents Oris’s Reaction Race Game for Mobile Devices
Williams, a leading Formula One team and advanced engineering company, is proud to present Oris Reaction Race, a new mobile and tablet game featuring Williams Racing.
Reaction Race is free to download for Apple and Android mobile phones and tablets, and will test your reflexes and precision through five stages of a race:
· Starting grid – react to the lights to make the fastest start
· Gear change – time your shifts to maximise speed
· Pit stop – change the wheels and make the fastest pit stop
· Braking zone – perfect your braking for the best lap time
· Photo finish – snap a shot of the car as it crosses the finish line
The five game modes combine to create a full race challenge, from which you can compare your score against your friends and the rest of the world.
Oris, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer in its 13th year as Williams’ Official Watch Partner, is also running a competition throughout the 2015 Formula One season to award prizes to players of the game, which has been developed by Playerthree studio.
One of the top 20 players on the leaderboard in each race week of the 2015 Formula One World Championship will win a signed Williams Racing cap, with an additional prize draw at the end of the Formula One season awarding an Oris Williams Day Date watch and a piece of signed bodywork from a Williams Formula One car.
Speaking about the launch of Reaction Race Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal and Commercial Director of Williams, said; “Williams is currently placing great emphasis on creating engaging digital content for our fans, so we are delighted to be supporting Oris Reaction Race. Playerthree has created something that is widely accessible and a bit different to the tried and tested racing games currently on the market. Oris has something that tests your skills in a new and addictive way, and we are sure it will be a big hit with our fans.”
Philipp Kaeser, Oris Vice President, said: “Oris is very successful in interacting with our fans in the digital world. The game is highly engaging by offering a true mobile experience from the world of Oris and motorsport.”
David Streek, Creative Director of Playerthree, said: “When designing Reaction Race, our greatest challenge was to create a game that reflected the precision, expertise and skill of both Oris the Swiss watchmaker and Williams Racing without being a traditional racing game. We focused on your accuracy and timing skills as a player during five different race day challenges as you strive for perfection.”
