Being one of the first driving sims to advocate its major VR support, Project Cars is back with Project Cars 2 and a whole lot more bells and whistles.
Announced in the later hours of yesterday, BANDAI NAMCO revealed themselves to be the publishing partner for the title yet again; though the announcement email strictly speaks of their plans to bring the title to the Americas later in the year without any mention of other territories.
Project Cars 2 is proposed to "deliver an unparalleled racing experience to players of all skill levels" with "leading-edge visuals, precise car physics and realistic A.I.". And we wouldn't put it past them. The original Project Cars was a pretty game; but not one that stayed in the spotlight for much longer than a week.
Due onto Steam alongside the usual console suspects, the sequel's use of Slightly Mad Studios' own LIVETRACK 3.0 system is being used to properly simulate the effects of weather scattered across the racing terrain. Weather effects and driving conditions will bounce around ice, dirt, mud and snow giving you the change to drive around 170 different vehicles across more than 60 different tracks.
Once released, we'll see a racing sim with native 12K support for those packing the hardware and strength to pull off a smooth experience across three 4K displays with the VR support making a return. Expect more information as the months go by.
