Bandai Namco has officially announced Project CARS 2 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, and it’s scheduled to be released in late 2017.
Of course, we’ve already known about the existence of Project Cars 2, as it’s even included in our list of the most anticipated upcoming games of 2017.
Project CARS 2 will follow up the original with more than 170 cars and over 60 different tracks, as well as an Online Championships game mode that fans had been clamoring for. What’s more, the upcoming racing game will include additional racing disciplines like ice, dirt, snow, and mud racing.
But more interesting than all of that is the fact that Bandai’s Project Cars 2 announcement press release mentions that the game can be presented at up to 12K resolution graphics on PC, and it’ll have VR support. So if you have a setup with three 4K PC monitors linked together, prepare for the highest resolution in a video game yet.
“Project CARS 2’s authentic presentation of motorsports racing isn’t just cutting edge, it surpasses the cutting edge,” says Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “No other driving game or racing title can approach Project CARS 2’s level of visual fidelity, real-world physics, and intelligent driver A.I. These features combined with dynamic weather and track effects, refined controls, and an authentic love of competitive eSports guarantees players will be able to live-out their racing aspirations on multiple gaming platforms.”
Project CARS 2 will have a focus on leading-edge visuals with precise car physics and realistic A.I. racers for a challenging racing simulation. Races will use LIVETRACK 3.0 technology that allows the dev team to add dynamic real-time weather and seasonal effects, track surface conditions, and time-of-day changes.
Could this be the game to put Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS in the same conversation as the likes of Forza and Gran Turismo?
