Bandai Namco has announced that Project CARS is getting a Game of the Year Edition which bundles together the base game and all subsequent content updates in one neat golden package.
Forget Project CARS for a second, Slightly Mad Studios has something else up their sleeves and it removes the need for a road completely.
I can't say that this comes as much of a surprise, but Slightly Mad Studios has announced today that the upcoming Wii U version of Project CARS has sadly been cancelled, the reasons being that the current hardware just isn't up to scratch.
Yesterday Slightly Mad Studios revealed that Project CARS 2 was now in development opening up their World of Mass Development portal once again for players to pledge to the creation of the game.
Slightly Mad Studios has surprised us all today by announcing that Project CARS 2 is in development, just one month after the launch of Project CARS. No, I'm not kidding. They're currently seeing funding on their World of Mass Development portal.
One of the main appeals for some people with Project CARS was it's expected launch for the Wii U, but for a while now Slightly Mad Studios' comments on the Nintendo release have been a little.. withheld. Now however, the developer has come clean and it seems that they've run into a few problems and are really hoping Nintendo announce some hardware news at E3.
As someone who's fond of the Need for Speed series, and has recently fallen in love with the Forza Horizon series, and I almost could have liked The Crew. With that though, I thought I'd try my hand at something a little more serious. Project CARS is advertised as "for the racer" so what better way to experience a proper racing sim than with this game?
As of right now the embargo for reviews on Project CARS has lifted which means we can let you all know our thoughts. Unfortunately we can't offer our full impressions just yet as the multiplayer portion of the game is yet to be truly populated and right now doesn't represent the entire game. With that we've decided to withhold our full review (which is around 80 per cent written) in favour of a quick impressions of the game overall.
Usually when you hear that a new racing game has gotten itself a new trailer, you expect blisteringly fast cars, roaring engines, tyres squealing, and much more. In Project CARS case, that's not what you get at all. In fact you get a fairly picturesque and calm trailer giving you even more facts about the game's conception, a detailed look at the cars in action, and just an overall look at how beautiful the game actually is.
Slightly Mad and Bandai Namco's Project CARS is almost upon us and we're starting to receive the juicy information in terms of what we'll find in the upcoming racing sim! We already know what tracks we'll be able to take a spin around, but what we don't know is exactly which cars we'll be taking for a spin. Personally, I'm not that much of a car enthusiast, but from this list there are a few notable makes and models both old and new!
Kids have fantastic imaginations and as we're entering an era where practically anything is possible, perhaps the cars of the future will hover, perhaps they'll be fully autonomous, perhaps they'll even be able to fly. So it comes as no surprise that Project CARS developer, Slightly Mad, is looking at the minds of the future to help design cars for their next game.. well.. that's not true, but I totally believe it could be.. Either way, these lucky boys and girls could get their hands on a PlayStation 4 if their designs are as awesome as we hope they'll be.
Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have launched a brand new trailer for Project CARS which takes a look at the game's multiplayer mode, and while it doesn't matter what car or what track you prefer, what does matter is how many other players you'll be able to play with. Thankfully, the trailer confirms that too.
After several delays, earlier this week Bandai Namco revealed that the "guaranteed" release date for Project CARS was May 8 in the UK. Though this left many of us dubious, Bandai Namco Entertainment and Slightly Mad Studios has today announced that Project CARS has gone gold, meaning it's ready to be printed onto disc and prepared for digital download. To celebrate the news, they've also revealed the full track list.
Delay after delay after delay, Project CARS has been pushed back so many times I'm not sure what to believe any more. Slightly Mad Studios has now pegged the ultra-realistic racer for release on May 8 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Oddly enough, I feel that this one could be the final, guaranteed release date, and not just because Bandai Namco said so.
Project CARS has been in development for almost four years now, and though I'm still not convinced Project CARS is the game's final name, it's set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One in mid-May, eventually launching on Steam OS and Wii U thereafter. So I guess it really will be called Project CARS.. Hmm.
