Earlier this week Slightly Mad Studios revealed a brand new type of vehicle for its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible racing simulation experience, Project CARS. That new vehicle is the kart, bringing an entirely new type of racing to the title, which supports the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). Now the first screenshots for the karts in Project CARS have arrived, and can be seen below.
A total of eight different images can be seen, showcasing a wide variety of karts that players will be able to drive when the title launches. Kart races will come in two varieties, the first using 125cc shifter karts for short circuit events and another utilising 250cc Superkarts that can reach speeds of up to 160mph. Karts join the likes of track day cars and supercars in the title’s long list of available vehicle types.
Project CARS was recently delayed into March 2015. The title is set to launch on PC, Linux and Mac with Oculus Rift support as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The former is also expected to receive support for the Project Morpheus HMD in the future. VRFocus will continue to follow Project CARS leading up to launch, reporting back with all of the latest updates.
