Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios have announced that Project CARS 2 will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 22. The two companies have also released a brand new (and very shiny) E3 2017 trailer for the game. It’s been embedded above.
Slightly Mad is adding a number of new features to the racing simulation sequel, and they’re on full display in the E3 2017 trailer:
Passion for motorsport is embodied in the fan-requested multi-class racing that enables drivers to compete in any car and track in a field of multiple car classes which replicates the world’s most famous endurance racing championships, past and present. Whether it’s iconic cars from the golden age of sports cars, modern prototypes, or GT3, all classes of cars can now race together in either single or championship mode as Project CARS 2 scores the driver’s position not just overall, but in-class too.
Capturing all the thrills of motorsport means drivers are able to competing in any car, anytime, anywhere, off- and-online, against both in-class competitors and other classes too.
Feel the adrenaline rush as you close-in fast on a GT race car in the coldness of night at Le Mans in your Le Mans Prototype; scan your mirrors on a wet day at the Nurburgring as a Porsche 911 GT3 R monster bursts from the fog and cuts past your Renault Clio as if you were standing still. This is motorsport in Project CARS 2.
Career Mode Showcased in E3 Sizzle Trailer
Showcasing the accessibility of the Project CARS franchise, the game’s “sandbox” approach to its career mode gives drivers an open path to achieving their motorsport dreams. Drivers can begin their motorsport career in grassroots series such as karts and race their way to the very top echelons where many of the world’s most prestigious brands and cars await; they can choose to begin in any motorsport discipline; or even go straight into one particular type of motorsport, and spend one or multiple seasons in that championship. With nine motorsport disciplines to choose from, a racing career has never been more rewarding or challenging.
Project CARS 2 delivers an unparalleled racing experience for players of all skill levels and driving desires. Players can hop in and drive any car, on any track, at any time. Bleeding-edge visuals, precise car physics, revamped confidence-inspiring gamepad controls combined with advanced and newly refined tire grip and slip physics provide drivers with optimized control and feel in all situations. Recalibrated and highly realistic A.I. make Project CARS 2 the most immersive and technically-advanced racing simulation on the planet.
Players who decide to pre-order Project CARS 2 will be upgraded to the Day One Edition, which include four bonus cars (2016 Honda Civic Type R (Euro Spec), 2015 Honda 284 Concept, 1981 Nissan 280ZX IMSA GTX, and 1990 Nissan Skyline GT-R R32 Group A) as part of the Japanese Cars Pack.
