June 8, 2017Written by Alex Co

Racing sim fans, you now have a date for your next fix! Bandai Namco has announced the Project Cars 2 release date in a new E3 trailer.

Only mentioned as a “late 2017” release in previous press releases, the video above now mentions that Project Cars 2 will race out on September 22 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

MULTI-CLASS ACTION

Passion for motorsport is embodied in the fan-requested multi-class racing that enables drivers to compete in any car and track in a field of multiple car classes which replicates the world’s most famous endurance racing championships, past and present. Whether it’s iconic cars from the golden age of sports cars, modern prototypes, or GT3, all classes of cars can now race together in either single or championship mode as Project CARS 2 scores the driver’s position not just overall, but in-class too.

Capturing all the thrills of motorsport means drivers are able to competing in any car, anytime, anywhere, off- and-online, against both in-class competitors and other classes too.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you close-in fast on a GT race car in the coldness of night at Le Mans in your Le Mans Prototype; scan your mirrors on a wet day at the Nürburgring as a Porsche 911 GT3 R monster bursts from the fog and cuts past your Renault Clio as if you were standing still. This is motorsport in Project CARS 2.

CAREER MODE SHOWCASED BY E3 SIZZLE TRAILER

Showcasing the accessibility of the Project CARS franchise, the game’s “sandbox” approach to its career mode gives drivers an open path to achieving their motorsport dreams. Drivers can begin their motorsport career in grassroots series such as karts and race their way to the very top echelons where many of the world’s most prestigious brands and cars await; they can choose to begin in any motorsport discipline; or even go straight into one particular type of motorsport, and spend one or multiple seasons in that championship. With nine motorsport disciplines to choose from, a racing career has never been more rewarding or challenging.

OPTIMIZED HANDLING

Project CARS 2 delivers an unparalleled racing experience for players of all skill levels and driving desires. Players can hop in and drive any car, on any track, at any time.  Bleeding-edge visuals, precise car physics, revamped confidence-inspiring gamepad controls combined with advanced and newly refined tire grip and slip physics provide drivers with optimized control and feel in all situations. Recalibrated and highly realistic A.I. make Project CARS 2 the most immersive and technically-advanced racing simulation on the planet.

Developed once again by Slightly Mad Studios, Project Cars 2 will see the inclusion of a rallycross mode. It’ll also have a co-op career mode and the largest track roster ever.

Are you excited to get your shift on in Project Cars 2 or are you more interested in the other racing games coming out later this year?
