Project CARS intro video

Project CARS intro video

Today we decided to launch Project CARS to see how far Slightly Mad Studios had come since November. When seeing the impressive introduction sequence, we couldn't help capturing it for you guys, even though the game doesn't look as realistic and mind-blowing once behind the wheel. The Azur Coast track had quite a lot of visual glitches (shadows and lighting seemed completely crazy) and the replays we watched looked nothing like what you can see in the intro. Let's hope the developers will have enough time to polish their game in time for the March release.
Update 2: The trailer is back!

Game looks gorgeous. Hoping it looks remotely close to this good on ps4, and more importantly...runs smoothly. I haven't bought a true racing game since GT5 over 4 yrs ago. Still a little upset at the no modifications thing, but everything else looks amazing.

there's not much to change in this, other than improving the weather effects it looks pretty sweet.

Needs more cars
Commented on 2015-01-17 04:12:35
Really? Seems like the number I'm use to playing against, but that's just me. I don't see why not to add more racers, if the current gen can handle it of course at 60fps. For my PC that's obviously nothing.

The number of cars sounds like it would most likely be handled by a multiplier. If the devs don't uncap the number of racers, you can be sure modders will uncap that.

Amounts of cars is way overrated. This game is going to pretty big. Forza6 probably will come this year too. I doubt GT7 will come this year.

It looks great. I hope they won't f this up.

Nonsense...I'd take 70 balanced race cars over 500-600 cars where 4 or 5 of them reign supreme like GT & Forza games.

...uh...some cars are better than others. Why gimp the best cars in the world, so that every car is balanced. Thats the dumbest thing i've heard in a while.

Plus in forza you could buy a crap car and modify it to race against ferarris, so while outright there are maybe a few cars that are the best, most every car can be upgraded to compete, and thats how it should be.

This is a racing game. Forza is geared more towards the pimp my ride crowd.

I don't want to race against someone's neon pink Impala.

Will the Gamersyde opening scene be removed when it's back?
Commented on 2015-01-17 15:47:33 In reply to Nathaniel_Wu
We'll have the HQ trailer with Slightly Mad Studios so there won't be any GSY opening scene.

Thanks, that's good news

I don't mean that I dislike it or something, I like it on the contrary.
It's just not good for logos other than the studio's to appear in a trailer, for a trailer collector, I think you know what I mean?
Commented on 2015-01-17 18:45:02 In reply to Nathaniel_Wu
Yes, dont worry. I put it because it was my own video capture and I had no idea it would be used as a trailer. :)

Wow dude, you are so wrong. Forza has the ability to be what you want it to be. It can be (mostly) all out sim depending on what difficulty you choose and what abilities? (can't think of the word) turn off . It can be what you said, a game where people paint cars and drive them around for fun. It be an all out drifting game as well. And it can be a game where you just turn down the difficulty, turn off damage, change steering from sim, and turn off tire wear and just drive for fun.

The car painting phenom thing happened on accident.

Forza is the best all around do what you want car game out there.

Who said anything about gimping cars? In PCars your race in series rather than putting a 500bhp Fiesta against a DB9 ;)

PCars will be the best thing ever to happen to Forza as it will force T10 to up their game as the have became complacent since they bettered Gran Turismo

I'm actually a huge Forza fan with a fanatec wheel setup. Forza has the best clutch simulation and that's Pc games included. But it has evolved into more of a driving sim.

project cars deals more with racing. There efforts have gone into race atmosphere, animated pits, weather, racing disciplines etc.

Forza you spend most of the career racing Honda fits and SUVs.
Commented on 2015-01-18 01:05:11
This is also just my opinion.

I hope this game pushes gt and Forza to step out of they're comfort zones.

Are you kidding the PS4 version will be cut down since it's 60fps and anything 60fps on next gen consoles you know sacrifices have to be made.

Hence why I said REMOTELY close and not identical to this. I realize it will be a pretty big downgrade from the trailers, but I just don't want it looking like a last gen game.
Commented on 2015-01-18 13:48:46
Obviously PC on Ultra is going to look truly wonderful but i dont think the PS4 version will be that much of a downgrade...It will be similar to High settings on PC. Hopefully the Xbox version can get close to High setting also.
Commented on 2015-01-19 10:34:48
I hope for the guys on ps4 it looks well - the main sticking point is the number of cars on track that will have to be limited to accommodate 60fps, as I've noticed on PC when I get above a certain threshold it seeks its way downwards.

@dargis49

You evidently don't know what a sim is if you are stating forza is a sim. i love GT and Forza, but at the end of the day once you have ventured towards rFactor, LFS, iRacing and the such, you realise what the true meaning of the word simulation is.

Forza - best customisation allowing you to achieve the look and go go power car you want.
PCars - best series and online racing (as per real life racing series') that I've had, realistic tyre wear/heat, same with the brakes.

All in all PCars has focused far more on reproducing the correct atmosphere for such events as the Nurburgring 24hr than the customisation that other games offer, but where it lacks in customisation, trust me, it more than makes up for in immersion. its immense.

I meant it's as all out sim as you'd want on a console. I think.

I play Assetto and iRacing loads, and this feels awful at the moment for me, plenty of time to work on it though, but it's the wrong end of the 'sim' spectrum for me
