SlightlyMad Studios seeks to expand upon what they brought to the table with Project CARS by adding Rallycross to Project CARS 2, coming later this year.
Rallycross, a form of sprint style car racing, mixes traditional racing with off-road elements, will be making its way to the Project CARS sequel, bringing with it an array of licensed cars and trucks later this year. Players can expect closed course action with 70-foot jumps and a multitude of obstacles with other drivers in close proximity.
Merging the authentic physics, unsurpassed visual fidelity, and superior driving dynamics synonymous with the Project CARS franchise along with a technical partnership with one of the sport’s most legendary teams, OMSE rallycross. The development team at Slightly Mad Studios signed real-world Honda Factory Global Rallycross racing stars Mitchell deJong and Oliver Eriksson as consultants to ensure the sport is presented in the most accurate and realistic manner possible. Project CARS 2 drivers will experience the rush of driving purpose-built rallycross cars such as Mitchell and Oliver’s Honda Red Bull GRC Civic Coupe on scanned real-world rallycross tracks including US-based DirtFish and Daytona, Lånkebanen in Norway, and the track where it all began half-a-century ago—Lydden Hill in the UK.
Project CARS 2, the follow-up to the successful Project CARS, will feature over 170 cars and 60+ tracks, as well as a new Online Championship game mode and additional racing disciplines, including off-road variants such as dirt, mud, snow and ice racing. Project CARS 2 will also feature resolutions up to 12K on PC with VR support, helping to fully immerse the player, while providing the “most technically advanced racing simulation experience.”
Project CARS 2 will be racing onto Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam later this year.
