Project CARS: Achievements, Cheats, Tips & Tricks

Slightly Mad Studios launched racing simulator Project CARS a year ago with support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). It was only last week when the developer announced additional support for the HTC Vive HMD as well. The title has 45 Steam Achievements to unlock, and VRFocus has the full list below.

Project CARS is available to purchase in two variants, the standard edition which is £23.49 GBP, or the Game of the Year Edition Bundle featuring 12 DLC packs for £39.95, giving a total saving of £26.72.
