Posted on Jul 14 2014 - 12:00pm by Gaf Hussain


Leading video game publisher and developer Bandai Namco has announced a worldwide distribution agreement with Slightly Mad Studios on Project CARS, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U and PC starting November 2014.

Crowd-funded by a passionate community that has been involved in the development process throughout to create their ultimate racing experience, Project CARS allows you to create a driver, pick from a huge variety of motorsports, and shift into high gear to chase a number of Historic Goals and ultimate recognition in the Hall Of Fame. Then test your skills online either in competitive fully-loaded race weekends, leaderboard-based time challenges, or continually-updated community events – sometimes for real-world prizes

Featuring the largest track roster of any recent racing game with a ground-breaking dynamic time of day & weather system, world-class graphics and handling, deep tuning & pit stop functionality, and support for Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, Project CARS leaves the competition behind in the dust.

“We are tremendously happy to be collaborating with Slightly Mad Studios on this promising title, in which community expectations are fusing with racers expertise to craft the next generation of simulation!” said Alberto González Lorca, VP Third Parties, Bandai Namco Games Europe.

“With a portfolio of prestigious, popular, and iconic titles under their wing, Bandai Namco are the perfect partners to bring our pioneering community-driven game to players around the world.” said Ian Bell, Head Of Studio, Slightly Mad Studios.

The Wii U version of this game has been delayed to 2015, but other platforms are still on schedule to release in November 2014.
