Today, Slightly Mad Studio and Bandai Namco announced that the community-assisted racing simulator ‘Project CARS 2’ will be coming to Xbox One, PC, and PS4 on September 22. The game will build upon the huge success of ‘Project CARS’ being one of the highest-rated and fastest-selling racing games of this generation.
The prequel ‘Project CARS’ was describes as one of the most “authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing games on the planet”. Create a driver, pick from a variety of motorsports, and shift into high gear to chase a number of Historic Goals and enter the Hall Of Fame. Then test your skills online either in competitive fully-loaded race weekends, leaderboard-based time challenges, or continually-updated community events.
‘Project CARS 2’ will offer more than 60 locations and 170 cars to race on them, doubling that of its predecessor. The PC version will support VR, along with support for resolutions as high as 12K. Dynamic weather conditions and surface deformities are also implemented to give the game a great deal of realism. Slightly Mad had each manufacturer test and approve each vehicle’s driving dynamics in order to provide the most accurate experience.
“Our collective goal at Slightly Mad Studios is to create a simulation racing experience that rivals that of real-life,” said Stephen Viljoen, game director on Project CARS 2, in a news release. “Realism and authenticity are central to our development mantra for Project CARS 2, hence we’re making sure we employ the best professional drivers, game developers, artists, and sound engineers to realize our vision for a game that takes players on the ultimate driver journey.”
Three special editions of the game have been confirmed: Limited Edition, Collector’s Edition, and Ultra Edition. You can preorder the game here from Amazon.
