Project CARS Gets Dated

Easily one of the more anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible titles currently in development is Project CARS from Slightly Mad Studios. The racing simulation title is set to support the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD) on PC when it launches later this year, with support for the Project Morpheus VR HMD on PlayStation 4 hitting further down the line. Now we have an official launch date for the title.

Project CARS will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 21st November 2014. A Wii U version is planned to follow in 2015. The title lets players race across a number of different race types or focus on a single one, with the usual smattering of single player and online modes also available. Its developers have previous experience in the racing genre with the likes of Need for Speed: Shift.

The title currently supports the second development kit (DK2) version of the Oculus Rift, and will no doubt update its support for further iterations of the device going forward. The title is set to be distributed by Bandai Namco. VRFocus will continue to follow Project CARS going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development as the release nears.
