"CSR Racing has a passionate fan base that lives and breathes the world of cars," said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion. "With more than 190 million downloads by auto enthusiasts around the world, the original CSR Racing and CSR Classics brought never-before-seen levels of visual fidelity and vehicle authenticity to the Racing genre on mobile. In CSR2, we've built on this legacy by amplifying the drag racing experience and introducing new social elements, higher-fidelity graphics and enhanced levels of customization to create the most immersive and realistic mobile racing experience for our players."

In CSR2, players participate in head-to-head drag races - the purest form of auto racing - against friends and fellow car lovers. CSR2 delivers a highly competitive multiplayer experience where online races are live and in real-time, giving players the opportunity to challenge opponents for in-game currency. Players can form crews, connect with the top players in the world and live chat racing strategies to defeat their biggest rivals.

The pit crew behind CSR2 understands what supercars the ultimate gearhead wants in their garage and how they want to customize them. Working closely with every car manufacturer featured in the game, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Pagani and more, each vehicle in CSR2 has been meticulously recreated for the mobile racing experience. With precise attention paid to every aspect of the customization experience, from vehicle paint colors and finishes to interior leather colors and trims, players will truly feel that they own their favorite high-performance cars.

"CSR2 makes it possible for our fans to experience what it means to buy, customize and race a Pagani," said Pagani Automobili S.p.A. "With only 100 Huayras ever produced globally, we're excited to bring our supercar to the fingertips of auto enthusiasts in CSR2."

Featuring ground-breaking shader effects, real-time motion blurring, lens dirt and dynamic exposure capabilities, CSR2 provides an immersive experience for players. Detailed weather effects also enable players to experience driving their favorite vehicle in wet weather conditions. Additionally, NaturalMotion collaborated with auto tuning companies, including Japan-based supercar tuner Liberty Walk, to ensure that the vehicles look and feel as realistic as possible.

"Liberty Walk is proud to partner with NaturalMotion and Zynga to bring LB Works cars to life in CSR2," said Wataru Kato, CEO, Liberty Walk. "The NaturalMotion team understands our style and products better than anyone, and CSR2 brings to life a unique car modification culture that mirrors what our fans see on the streets in the real world."

CSR2 is available to download for free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Google Play. For more information about CSR2, visit the game's community channels on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
