At the end of the month, the racer Project Cars 3 will attempt the balancing act between simulation and arcade. Developer Slightly Mad Studios is taking a chance with the reorientation of the series, but the now published car and tracklist promises a convincing scope.
After Slighly Mad Studios established the Project Cars among the top sim racing games, the third part of the series takes a different approach. Project Cars 3 will be more entry-level and accessible - as a Simcade racer, it will take on Forza Motorsport and co. Now the developers have released the vehicle and tracklist.
Project Cars 3 Vehicles
On August 28, Project Cars 3 will once again bring the asphalt to glow, but with a completely overhauled gameplay. While the game is much more beginner-friendly on the track, the fleet of vehicles is convincing with almost all important models of the most renowned car manufacturers.
From the Acura NSX, the 1990 Audi Quattro IMSA GTO and Ford RX Supercar to the Mercedes CLK-GTR and Toyota TS050 Hybrid LMP1 racing car, you'll find just about everything of note. More than 200 licensed cars have made it into the game and thanks to the extensive upgrade features, they can be further pimped with additional performance parts.
All the Tracks in Project Cars 3
In Project Cars 3, you will drive on a total of 120 track layouts, which take place on the world's most legendary race tracks as well as some fictitious ones. Whether you want to enjoy the picturesque sunset on the iconic Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, Australia, drive along the Côte d'Azur in the south of France, or drive your laps on the legendary Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola - which is finally making its Formula 1 comeback this year - it's all possible in Project Cars 3.
Surprisingly, some circuits, such as Spa-Francorchamps, the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, or Suzuka in Japan, shine with their absence.
Project Cars 3 will be launched on August 28 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Everything points to the fact that racing game fans can look forward to what may be the most beginner-friendly sim racing game in years, which nevertheless realistically depicts motorsports. We are curious how that combination will turn out.
