PCARS Nordschleife drive

PCARS Nordschleife drive

Now that Project CARS' official release date is known, most of the embargos related to tracks have been lifted, so we can show you what the final version of the famous Nordschleife looks like in the game. The video you'll find inside was captured about a week ago and its purpose was mainly to prove how realistic and immersive Slightly Mad Studios' new title. We used a quite original cockpit view so you'd be able to see the movements of the wheel and as surprising as it may sound, it was a perfectly playable perspective to play. This extract was recorded with our Fanatec wheel (Porsche 911 Turbo S) with all driving aids set to off, which was no picnic with such a playful ride.
Update: We've added a gallery of our personal images of the game.

Gotta say the Ring looks even better here than in Assetto Corsa. So on 7th of may another virtual test run before going onto the real thing again beginning of June.

it does indeed, quite distracting. i guess that can be ironed out with better shadow settings (softening). otherwise I'll just drive during cloudy conditions only ;)

They haven't taken into account how the windscreen would dampen down that effect, but the rest of it looks alright.

I keep meaning to ask this.. is there a hood cam? Almost all of your footage is in the cockpit. I think cockpit cameras are neat, but impractical. I hope there are hood/bumper cams as well.

Oh I know.. you've recorded a lot of Project Cars. I'll be the first to admit that I haven't watched it all :D

I even watched part of that stream.. where you were blacked out on twitch. I guess I picked it up late. Thanks!

No worries, I think we've shown as much hood cam gameplay as we've shown cockpit cam gameplay but sure, if eveyrtime you watched it was the cockpit view, I guess it was a bit misleading. :)

Just my luck I guess. I haven't been following along too closely. I'd be more into it if I had a wheel.

It's still a must play.

    aphex187 @GriftGFX: the world needs to open up to pvp ie 8v8 etc. Use ARMA Wasteland mod for guidance and you have a sure fire hit but they won't even be thinking that far ahead. An open world game that looks (2 Hours ago)
