Bandai Namco has released a new trailer today for its upcoming Project Cars 2. It will be due later in 2017 and is being dubbed the “ultimate driver journey”. The game will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will feature 170+ cars, 60+ tracks, varying terrains and different motorsports.
All of these aspects have been tested and approved by world-class drivers according to the press release update on the Project Cars Facebook page. The game will also feature more iconic cars from the world’s most elite brands. You can view the trailer below and see the improved details and maybe identify some of the new cars and tracks.
“Project CARS 2’s authentic presentation of motorsports racing isn’t just cutting edge, it surpasses the cutting edge,” says Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “No other driving game or racing title can approach Project CARS 2’s level of visual fidelity, real-world physics, and intelligent driver A.I. These features combined with dynamic weather and track effects, refined controls, and an authentic love of competitive eSports guarantees players will be able to live-out their racing aspirations on multiple gaming platforms.”
Some more information has been made available via Bandai Namco’s official press release. Project Cars 2 will be presented up to 12K resolution (via three 4K resolution monitors) on PC with VR support. This will make Project Cars 2 the most immersive simulation racing experience to date. It will also feature the heavily fan-requested Online Championship game mode. Heavy dynamic weather will also be included with changes in season, as well. This will certainly affect track temperature if you choose autumn versus summer, which results in different tire grip. There will also be tracks in the ice, dirt, and snow. This is all possible with Slightly Mad Studios’ proprietary LIVETRACK 3.0 technology. Please check out the gallery
