Slightly Mad Studios is slowly gearing up for the release of its über-realistic racing simulator, Project Cars, and today the studio unveiled a brand spanking new trailer for the crowdfunded title that shows off the in-game weather effects along with those all-important rides.
As a matter of fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the footage was pulled from a live real-world racing event, given the remarkable attention to detail on display. It’s a fidelity on par with the likes of DriveClub and the recent Forza Horizon 2, and it’ll be interesting to see how the racing community react to Slightly Mad’s title when it makes its long-awaited bow. In terms of gameplay, we understand that Project Cars will offer players a variety of tracks across different racing categories, including the likes of Formula 1, NASCAR and your typical high-stakes race outings.
As we alluded to earlier, Slightly Mad’s racing sim was scheduled to arrive in the latter stages of 2014, though the studio opted to shelter the game from the industry’s heavy-hitters and postpone it until March. At the time of writing, we’ve yet to hear any update on the Wii U version of Project Cars, though the studio did ensure that the port had been delayed, rather than cancelled outright.
Project Cars will drift onto PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 17 with a Wii U version slated to launch later in the year. We’ll keep you updated on any developments relating to the crowdfunded title as we learn more.
