Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco have announced that Project CARS 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in late 2017. They are aiming to offer players the most intense and authentic racing experience.
Project CARS 2 is created by gamers and tested by a team of world-class racing drivers—including two-time Le Mans winner Tommy Milner, Audi factory driver René Rast, stunt driver Ben Collins (Skyfall, Doctor Strange), and Rallycross and sim racing champion Mitchell DeJong.
Project CARS 2 invites racers to challenge a host of online opponents, or take on lifelike AI in the most beautiful, authentically-crafted, and technically advanced racing simulation game on the planet.

Following the critical acclaim and success of Project CARS (read our review), Project CARS 2 has a host of new and improved features and gameplay:
- The Pinnacle of Authenticity: With the largest track roster ever on console, a wide selection of over 170 licensed cars from the most iconic brands, and support for VR and 12K.
- The Heat of Competition: With a brand-new, fan-requested Online Championships game mode allowing racers to make and join ongoing racing leagues, Esports functionality built-in from day one (including Competitive Racing License accreditation), Director/Broadcaster integration and streaming, and an array of old and new motorsport classes including Rallycross, IndyCar, and many more.
- The Power of Conditions: With every tarmac, mud, gravel, and dirt-covered surface utilizing LiveTrack 3.0 featuring dynamic time of day, seasonal changes, altering atmospheric conditions, and evolution over the course of a race weekend. Fight against Mother Nature with dynamic weather that now includes snow, and take on the challenge of ice-based tracks such as the official Mercedes-Benz Driving Events Winter Training Ice Track in Sweden. This specific track in the game is a faithful recreation of an exclusive venue that Mercedes-Benz has established near the town of Sorsele in the very north of Sweden. Set on a frozen ice lake, this track is teaching and testing everybody’s driving skills on snow & ice in a perfect manner – equally in the game as in real life.
The first Project CARS title is available for free this month via Xbox Games with Gold.
