Project Cars 2 will officially release later this year with the promise of improving on every aspect of the original, announced Slightly Mad Studios.
The second installment in the motorsport racing simulation series will boast support for virtual reality from day-one. The developer also confirmed the surprising feat of Project Cars 2 being able to run on monstrous 12K resolution. For fans of the series who are running three 4K monitors in a series, go easy on the screenshot-capturing rampage.
Project Cars 2 will feature over 170 different cars and 60 diverse tracks. This time around, Slightly Mad Studios is adding multiple types of racing mediums. This includes off-road dirt racing, as well as burning rubber on ice and snow.
The new racing disciplines are only accentuated by the game’s improved dynamic weather system that even takes seasons into account. The varying weather conditions will also effect traction and tyre-grip, the wear-and-tear of the engine, and loads of more aspects that add to the authentic experience.
Project Cars 2 is being published by Bandai Namco and will release in fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Assuming that the game will also be hitting PlayStation 4 Pro and Project Scorpio, it will be interesting to see how much on par they are with the base PC version.
A precise release date is yet to be told.
