Project CARS is an upcoming racing game that will get a release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U. From what we know about the game so far, it is safe to say that Project CARS is going to be one of the best racing games you have played in your entire life. Why? Because it looks like they are doing everything right, as the game will take advantage of the latest technology to deliver something we have never seen before.
Slightly Mad Studios has currently delayed the Wii U release of the game, which has disappointed a great deal of people and some don’t think they are going to release it for the Wii U. This is nonsense, as their official website clearly states you can preorder the Wii U version, which was supposed to get a release date in the Fall of 2014. It should not be hard to understand why a game like this would take longer to develop on the Wii U, so let’s go over the main features of Project CARS.
If you think about the latest technology and hardware in the gaming world, you might think of the Oculus Rift of Project Morpheus by Sony. Project CARS works with both of these new virtual reality devices, and the graphics in a racing game have never looked so clear until now. We are talking 4k and even 12k visuals, and as you can see in the video below and in the screenshots – this game looks very realistic. They have recently released a bunch of screenshots that show your view from behind the wheel and it looks amazing!
Apparently, they have delayed the Wii U launch because the game looks on all the other platforms except for the Wii U – which still has some details to be worked out. This is great because Wii U players should be able to get the same experience, or at least close enough. Andy Tudor from Slight Mad Studios recently spoke on the delay, claiming Project CARS looks “phenomenal” on the Wii U and the console is “quite good.”
There will be four different game modes to choose from, they are Career, Community, Solo and Online. It looks like the Career mode will resemble a real racing career as you will experience the ups and downs of a race car driver. In the beginning of your career you will get the option to choose your preferred motorsport, which means they aren’t forcing you to start the game with slow vehicles. So you pick your motorsport and sign your first contract to begin racing in career mode, and then you will make progress with the help of your Race Calendar. If you do good, you will catch the attention of scouts and open the door for more opportunities.
Not all the cars on this game are going to be real, but even the fake cars will be based off of real cars, so it’s not a huge deal. Most of the cars are in fact real world cars, so your favorite car might be featured on Project CARS. In total, there are more than 100 cars and over 30 tracks, such as real world racing tracks like Suzuka Circuit in Japan and Hockenheimring in Germany.
