Earlier this month Slightly Mad Studios revealed that its popular racing franchise Project CARS would be returning this summer for its third instalment. Today, publisher Bandai Namco has revealed that Project CARS 3 will be released at the end of August.
Project CARS 3 will bring together elite brand’s from around the world with new and classic cars alike for players to jump in the driving seat. It’ll feature a new career mode where players can “rise from weekend warrior to racing legend.”
Slightly Mad Studios explains that: “New to the franchise is a deeply engaging metagame that challenges players to race hard and earn in-game Credits with which to buy and own hundreds of cars from the world’s most elite brands and race them all on dynamic and spectacular circuits around the globe featuring stunning all-weather, all-seasons conditions.”
There will be 200+ elite-brand race and road cars, 140+ tracks at locations around the world ” a completely redesigned and unrivalled controller experience, an even more accurate and fun handling model, adjustable skill settings for every level of driver.”
Players will also have a wealth of customisation options to play with, swapping performance parts that affect handling and power, car liveries to make that motor standout as well as rims, tyres, license plates, race numbers, and more to modify.
When it comes to support Project CARS 3 has virtual reality (VR) headsets well covered with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index all compatible. As with previous editions, while PlayStation 4 is supported, PlayStation VR isn’t.
Project CARS 3 will launch on 28th August. For further announcements from Slightly Mad Studios, keep reading VRFocus.
