Hardcore racing-sim Project CARS 3 announced for this Summer

Current-gen gets its final racing-sim

Slightly Mad Studios has unveiled the third entry into their racing-sim series with Project CARS 3. The simulator is coming out very soon, sometime this Summer for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can check out the announcement trailer here!

Bandai Namco is once again publishing Slightly Mad Studios’ large racing sim that has carved itself a nice spot among genre giants like Gran Turismo and Forza. By being a full multi-platform title, however, fans across almost every system can enjoy this racing-sim, instead of being stuck to each console’s exclusive racer.

But this also comes with some negatives. Namely, a lack of massive marketing by either Sony or Microsoft. Nonetheless, Project CARS 3 is following the franchise’s excellent tradition of offering the entire racing package. Tons of cars, plenty of tracks, and numerous customization options should satisfy every racing fan’s heart.

Fully scalable assists for all skill levels
New tyre model for convincing & fun handling
24-hour cycle, dynamic all-seasons, all-weather racing
Unrivalled Controller Experience
Visceral sense of speed
Intense crash effects and authentic car-contact
Enhanced AI
12K and best-in-class VR Support (on PC)

New and deeply engaging career mode
Battle your way up from weekend warrior to racing legend
New & compelling Multiplayer and Community Modes
Fun & exciting Daily Challenges

The announcement trailer doesn’t really do a great job at conveying all this sadly and goes for a flashy first impression, yet ends up being pretty lame. This reflects in viewers voicing their concerns about whether the franchise is leaving its simulation roots for a more arcade-like experience. Not a good look but that’s of course just a trailer.

The CEO of Slightly Mad Studios even chimed in via a Tweet where he’s promising that Project CARS 3 will have “all the sim you could want”. Thankfully, with a projected release window of this Summer fans won’t have to wait much longer to see for themselves.
