Five years after the franchise’s first installment, Project CARS 3, developed by UK studio Slightly Mad Studios and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe, was released on August 28, 2020 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. On the starting grid of this new episode, a brand new Career mode, a gameplay redesigned to appeal to both simulation fans and neophytes and, above all, the ability to customize all your cars as well as your pilot. Presentation of a future bestseller.
Since its appearance on the market 5 years ago, the Project CARS franchise has delighted lovers of car simulations. And that’s not likely to change: because its developers have taken what worked best on the first two episodes and made it even better, Project CARS 3, the latest from the British studio, will immerse you in the intensity of the motorsports like never before!
For simulation fans, but also for everyone else
Once again, the DNA of the Project CARS franchise – namely extremely precise and demanding driving – is sublimated: for lovers of realism, those who like to spend long moments tuning their car to get the best of it and who can not imagine playing other than in difficult mode, the most insignificant error of trajectory will be fatal to them. And that’s what’s good! Especially since in the last opus of Slightly Mad Studios, dynamic weather plays a major role. Clearly, it is not by what you will start your race under a magnificent sun that you will not end it in a real deluge … Therefore, it is up to you to find the right settings so that your car is as efficient on dry soil than soggy.
For others, those for whom piloting on consoles (or PC) must above all be a pleasure without fuss, the FTUE mode (First Time User Experience), a brand new tool offered by Project CARS 3, will allow them to choose how they want to enjoy the game without having to go through all the parameter settings (driving assistance, difficulty, AI …). An excellent way for beginners (or the most impatient!) To easily immerse themselves in the world of “PC3”.
Cars and circuits, do you want some!
To allow you to live the racing experience at its peak, PC3 offers you no less 200 road or racing cars from the world’s biggest brandss (Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Lotus, Ferrari, Ford, Jaguar, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Pagani, Porsche, Renault, Toyota, etc.).
On the circuits side, again, the British franchise is more than generous: more than 120 international routes (from the Nürburgring to Texas Motor Speedway to the must-see Monza Autodrome) are available. All day and night, in all weathers and in all seasons!
A brand new Career mode and the ability to customize your cars
In terms of new features, Project CARS 3 brings a host of new features, both in terms of playing pleasure and accessibility. To start with a whole new clearer career mode, better organized and more motivating than ever. You will progress from category to category and only your perseverance will allow you to go from the status of Sunday pilot to that of living legend!
Another novelty, just as exciting: cars that you can improve (wheels, tires, body kits, rims, etc.), which will have the effect of realistically changing their handling, behavior and power. On one condition, however: winning races! In PC3 indeed, no microtransactions possible, only real players are rewarded. In other words, if you want to become a champion, you will have to excel on the asphalt in order to accumulate XP points. And it is only thanks to these that you will be able to buy new cars and, subsequently, improve them. XP points that will also allow you to acquire many elements to customize your pilot (choice of character, suits, helmets, etc.). Clearly, defeat is not an option!
Three fun modes to relax you between two rushes
Are you the type of person who needs to decompress between races? The developers have thought of you and offer you three modes designed to release the pressure : ” Breakout », In which you will have to destroy the targets which will mark your route; ” Pace Setter », Where only those who set the best time over three laps without making the slightest mistake will be rewarded; ” Hotlap »Which, as its name suggests, will ask you to set the best time on one single lap.
So many fun challenges that you can complete in the ” Rivals », A novelty that will allow you to asynchronously face other players with, as a result, XP points.
Perfect gameplay and visual effects
Slightly Mad Studios, recognized developer in the world of racing games, has worked tirelessly to make Project CARS 3 the most authentic and accessible episode in franchise history. The result is there : the handling of the game is more precise than ever while the visual effects are simply breathtaking !
