Project CARS 3 is the third installment of the popular racing games series, whose development is supervised by the Slightly Mad Studios team, belonging to the British company Codemasters. We are talking about a team whose portfolio, in addition to previous parts of the series, includes such games as Need for Speed Shift, Shift 2: Unleashed or Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends.

Mechanics

The core of Project CARS 3 is a Career Mode which has been refreshed and expanded in comparison to the previous parts. It provides a better sense of progress in reaching the next levels and is more friendly for newcomers. The game offers great opportunities to set the level of difficulty, so that greater accessibility does not adversely affect the gamers who are experienced and expecting challenges. They can give up any assists and increase the level of difficulty by betting on greater realism.

In Career Mode we get access to our own garage, where we can store dozens of cars modified according to our own vision. Project CARS 3 has increased the possibilities to improve vehicles with the parts that actually exist. You can change not only the look, but also such elements as tires, rims, engine or suspension. Each change impacts the steering or power of the car. In addition, for the first time in the series, a complex editor of the body appearance was created, reminiscent of the Forza Horizon series. In the game there is also an option to personalize the driver. Access to new parts and further career challenges is unlocked with credits and race experience points.

Project CARS 3 has introduced a number of minor but quite significant changes. The developer of the game has refreshed, among other things, the control system with a controller, developed a new tire system, improved artificial intelligence, more realistically reproduced the crashes and contact with other cars on the track and increased the feeling of speed while driving. In the third part of the cycle there were also all four seasons during the whole season, a dynamic weather system and a full daily cycle.

More than 200 cars from ten different vehicle classes and more than 140 tracks, including brand new ones such as the Interlagos in Sao Paolo and the streets of Shanghai, are available to players.

Game modes

Project CARS 3 allows you to play in both single and multi-player mode. The main game mode is Career, which was created from scratch for the new part of the series. In addition, a multiplayer has been expanded, in which we compete with other players in traditional competitions (fast races and a set of events prepared by ourselves or the game producer), as well as a new asynchronous variant (Rivals), in which we race against the "ghosts" of other users. A new system of rankings, challenges and prizes has been developed especially for the multiplayer mode.

Technical aspects

Project CARS 3 is built on the improved Madness engine, known from the previous installments of the series and the Shift cycle. It generates quite realistic graphics, especially the cars have been mapped with great care, including the parts under their hood. No less attention was paid to tracks that resemble real ones.

The game runs on consoles in 60 frames per second. The PC version, on the other hand, for which no limits are imposed, additionally supports virtual reality glasses and image resolution up to 12K.
