Project CARS – The Ultimate Driver Journey
If there is one thing car enthusiasts enjoy next to the cars themselves, it’s racing games. In 1997, Gran Turismo took the cheeky arcade racing game and made it more real than anyone could have imagined. Today, racing games are more than just a game. Gran Turismo has taken players and turned them into successful racecar drivers.
Forza Motorsport was another entrant into the simulation-racing genre that pitted it directly against Gran Turismo—forcing both to take racing realism to a completely new level.
With the next generation of video game consoles on the market, it is time for another new entrant into the racing game arena—Project CARS.
The name itself is actually an acronym standing for Community Assisted Racing Simulator and is positioning itself directly against the current behemoths Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport.
When you look at the trailers released for the games so far, you can see that Project CARS is trying to reach a level of realism unforeseen in previous games. At times, the games look better than real life itself. Here at Bill Jacobs BMW we are thrilled that this game is coming out in November because it features BMWs! One of the teaser trailers for Project CARS showed a BMW E92 M3 GTS crusing around the track. Watch this trailer and see for yourself how realistic this game is.
Project CARS is predicted to be the most authentic, intense, beautiful and technically-advanced racing game on the planet. Gamers will be able to test their skills online in competitive fully-loaded race weekends, leaderboard-based time challenges or continually-updated community events. Project CARS will also feature amazing graphics and handling, dynamic time of day and weather systems and deep tuning and pit stop functionality unlike anything before it.
Cars will be an integral part of the game. Gamers will be able to choose from road cars, US muscle cars, supercars, GTs, touring cars, open wheel cars and karts. Sixty unique tracks will also be included for standard circuit racing and even point-to-point racing.
One feature that really sets itself apart from the current crop of racing games is the CARS’ ability to use virtual reality headsets like Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus for an all-immersive experience unlike anything ever available.
If you enjoy anything in the automotive world, or want to experience racing a BMW around a track without the expense or danger, you are going to want to check out Project CARS. When the game hits store shelves this November, car enthusiasts will be eager to check it out and see if the game lives up to all the hype—because if it does, it may truly change the racing-game forever.
