Already available on Xbox One and coming soon to PC, Project CARS update 10.0 is now live on PlayStation 4, making some changes to vehicles and controllers.

Here’s the full list of patch notes for today’s update on PS4:

Vehicles

  • Aston Martin – DBR1-2, Vantage GTE, Vantage GT12: Tweaked cockpit exposure to better balance the world brightness when driving in cockpit view.
  • Ford Falcon FG – Made the in-cockpit steering wheel static when disabled so that the digital display is still visible.
  • Ford Fusion Stockcar – Fixed a damage issue, tweaks to setups so car is less likely to go on two wheels.
  • Dallara DW12 Indycar – Tweaks to setups so car is less likely to go on two wheels.

Controllers

  • Controllers – Updated the Fanatec support code to ensure the Fanatec handbrake peripheral works correctly when either connected via the USB adapter or the pedals to the wheel.

Pitstops

  • Fixed an issue where, if the player pits on the final lap and only closes the pit board after crossing the place in the pitlane where the finish line is (but before the post-race screen comes up), the race would fail to end.

Additionally, you’ll find that there are some changes to the way disconnection error messages are displayed:

From now on, there are specific error messages for several potential causes of this issue. Therefore, if you get disconnected over the Easter weekend, please share with us the exact text of the error message that you see, or even post a screenshot of it in this thread. This will help our team to understand exactly how much of the problem is being caused by PSN, compared to the game itself.

On the Sony side of things, they’ve identified a possible PlayStation Network issue causing disconnections in Project CARS and other PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 games. As of right now, they’re working on a fix.

If you missed the news earlier this month, a Project CARS Game of the Year Edition is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this spring.
