Project CARS 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE is the sequel to the successful racing game released in 2015. The game was once again developed by studio Slightly Mad, the creators of Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends, Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed. The game, similarly as its predecessor, was partially financed by using the World of Mass Development platform. Due to that, the players helped in the development of the game by giving their advices to the developers. The premise of the game remained the same. It is a title that focuses on a realistic approach to driving. However, the developers added various options that allow adjusting the difficulty level of opponents. It is also possible to activate or deactivate various handicaps such as display of an optimal driving route on the track.
In comparison to the first installment of Project CARS, the game contains much more locations. There are around 50 of them which equal more than 200 tracks on which one can drive by using various vehicles. There are more than 200 vehicles assigned to 40 categories available, including some completely new, like concept cars.
The races take place in various single and multiplayer modes. The basic option is the singleplayer campaign which can be played also in cooperation. In that mode the second player becomes the pilot or another driver from the same team. The game also offers online modes. While connected online, not only traditional races with other players are available, but situations when players from across the world take control of SI drivers from singleplayer modes as well. There are also various challenges and rankings available.
Fans of tuning will appreciate countless options that allow adjusting the machine to one’s needs and then test it on handmade track.
