Project CARS Info/Discussion Megathread

Post by OneBadHuskerFan on Sun Mar 29, 2015 10:27 am

I've kind of wanted to keep posting videos/info regarding the game but I don't want to spam the "Misc Games" forum" with stuff so I thought maybe it would be a good idea to just have one dedicated thread to the game.

With that said, here's a newly released car (for free)...

Announcing Free Car #1: The Lykan Hypersport

The Lykan Hypersport is one of the most exclusive and expensive cars ever to be made with additional options such as embeddable diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires being available.

It is also the first supercar to be produced in the Middle East and is the star of a breathtaking set-piece in the upcoming Furious 7 film…

Capable of reaching 62mph in just 2.8 seconds, the Lykan Hypersport from W Motors has both impressive power producing 740 bhp with a top speed of 245mph whilst also showcasing breathtaking styling and futuristic technology such as a holographic mid-air dashboard.
 
Project CARS Creative Director, Andy Tudor, commented “we are immensely pleased to have this awesome machine in the game and to give fans the chance to get behind the wheel of a truly amazing vehicle. The Lykan Hypersport represents the first of a series of free cars we’ll be giving away every month as a thank you to our fans for being so patient for the launch of the game. We’ll have more info on the full schedule of further content for Project CARS soon but we hope that this is a great sneak peek of just one way in which Project CARS is going to expand in the future.”

Great idea, I personally enjoy all the videos you post.

@ Zak/OC etc - It's probably time for a Project Cars section.

Game looks immensely better than Forza 5.  I'll have to keep an eye on it when it finally releases and see what the reviews are like.  The dynamic time and weather looks awesome.  Forza 6 probably won't have weather again.

If it does I'd imagine it'll be more like the weather in Forza Horizon 2 which is basically just eye candy but doesn't effect the driving at all.

Ford Sierra RS500 with AI at 90% at Watkins Glen (Build 969).  I love the realistic struggle with the car and how he loses it at 4:30.

I saw this article today - nice rundown of the game, why the delay was good, etc.

Good article.  They definitely seem to have their stuff together.  With the whole premise being a community assisted racer it should be a bit more ready for prime time right at release compared to some other games.  I'm sure there will be some issues here and there, but for the most part it looks like they are trying very hard to make those minimal from the start.

The only part I'm concerned about is online stability. Then again, I generally play my racers solo for a month or so until I've gotten the hang of it - so not really a big issue either way.

I'm like the author, don't know enough to fully utilize all the realistic car "stuff", I just wanna go fast and drive cars I'll never drive.

Nice updated PS4 video.  The guy should have taken the time to upload it at 60fps but it is what it is.  He said later vids will be.

Not a surprise.  As long as it runs at a constant 60fps I'm OK with it, just wish the XB1 had a little more "oomph".

Project CARS is 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One

I'm just excited for the game. And the Xbox Ones CPU will handle the physics better. So while it's not an easy headline 'this number are bigger than that one!!111' it'll be more significant from a gameplay/experience point-of-view.

Your car garage is going to look bad@ss on the PS4. Your gameplay/physics will feel bad@ss on the XB1.

Really though, the difference is sub 10% performance between the two, so it should be a practically identical experience from a gameplay/visual point of view.

2 month old build on Xbox One gameplay.  It's been improved a lot since but still looks good for being an older build.

Andy Tudor (Creative Director at Slightly Mad Studios) tweeted this so it looks like it's gone gold, but they haven't officially announced that as of yet...

I think there is only one thing left to ask...  @ Husker - Are you excited for this game?  I have not been able to tell from your posts. Wink

Lol, very much so.  Forza 5 was such a letdown for me that I've built up a lot of hype for this game.  Hopefully not too much, we'll see.  I'm hungry for the next GOOD racing game and Forza has lost that.

That really is too bad about Forza.  I really loved that series and I was sad about not getting an X1 and missing out.  CARS has definitely been my salvation in that regard but I must admit I am a little bummed about not being able to paint up my custom cars.  Still, I am very excited to get my hands on a good racer again.  Can't wait.

I'm going to be waiting on this to see how well its release goes. It does look impressive though.
