We were telling you a few weeks ago about the free Volvo racing game set to release on May 26 as a fun way to promote the S60 concept.

Now, as Volvo Car Corporation and SimBin Development Team announced, Volvo-The Game can be played with five racing legends in addition to the new Volvo S60 Concept.

They are Volvo models that many people will remember from the STCC ( Swedish Touring Car Championship) and BTCC (the British Touring Car Championship) racing series.

Players will be able to choose between the Volvo C30 (which is competing in this year's STCC), the STCC Volvo S60 that participated a few years ago, the Volvo S40 that participated in the BTCC, the Volvo 850 Estate hat became a legend in the BTCC, and the racing classic, a Volvo 240 Turbo Group A.

The game comes with three difficulty levels, challenging players to handle the Swedish models, cars that is, through two tracks: Gothenburg Eco Drive Arena in Göteborg, Sweden, and Chayaka outside Kiev in the Ukraine. This is premiere for the gaming world, since Volvo - The Game is the only virtual racing game in the world to include the Ukrainian track.

The difficulty levels are similar to those from other racing games: "novice with all the driver assistance technology activated such as ABS brakes, "semi-pro", and finally "pro" where there is no assistance whatsoever.
