"Project CARS will be one of the first games on PS4 to support virtual reality."
Slightly Mad Studios, whose previous experience includes games from series like 'Need for Speed' and 'Test Drive,' as well as simulators like 'GTR' and 'GT Legends' has announced a target date for the PS4 version of 'Project CARS.'
From Creative Director Andy Tudor, "We wanted the core driving experience to be the most authentic on the planet, and we wanted to provide you with all the features you need to recreate a race weekend as it happens in real life — complete with a dynamic time of day and a weather system that not only looks beautiful but challenges your skills and provides strategic opportunities. And we wanted to connect players together with a variety of online and community features — time trials, events, competitive multiplayer, content sharing, stat comparisons, and more."
"Whether you’re recreating Lewis Hamilton’s fearlessness out on a European racing circuit, searching for that perfect opportunity to break out of a close pack of GT cars, testing your stamina doing a 24 hour race in an LM Prototype, or simply taking a muscle car out for a drive down the US West Coast, both the cars and tracks are exact 1:1 recreations of the real things."
"On the cars that means visually down to the screws that hold the suspension system together, physically in terms of recreating the exact handling and performance characteristics, and sonically representing the various roars or purrs or growls that each exhibits. Others may say similar, but they don’t come close to the attention to detail we put in."
'Project CARS' is now set for a November release on all platforms.
In addition to the visual standards, racing standards, and a goal for a fresh racing experience, 'Project CARS' will be "one of the first games on PS4 to support virtual reality" through Project Morpheus.
