It's been a while since Slightly Mad Studies announced it'd be bringing a collection of 10 BMWs to its Project CARS beta - our very own Alan Boiston discussed it all the way back in his July News Update! - and whilst we know that it takes a while to model a car inside and out, we were beginning to wonder when we'd expect to see them in action.
Well, now actually! From today, along with all the improvement and fixes that come with 'Build 296', two of the ten Beemers have made their way into the Beta (albeit in a very early, 'rough and ready' stage): the BMW Z4 GT3 and the BMW M1 Procar racers.
However, it's worth pointing out that, to experience them now (along with the Nurburgring Nordschleife), you can't if you're a 'Junior' member. Instead, you have to upgrade to 'Team Member' status, which requires a slightly higher fee.
Still, all the other changes are available across the board, and all of Bavaria's finest (in the eyes of Slightly Mad Studios...) will find their way into the finished game or, if the SMS crew are feeling kind and generous, a future 'Junior Member' build of Project CARS.
In the meantime, feel free to browse our image gallery of the official press release screen shots, and let us know what you think of these new BMWs in Project CARS - or, indeed, the beta in general - in either the comments section below or in our Forums.
Alan did you ever play Race Pro from Atari for Xbox 360? I actually played it when it first came out then started playing Forza and I forgot about the game. Thing is the Formula 3000 part of the game was great and the tracks were awesome. Check it out. LOL started playing it again
Yes its a shame the hardware manufacturers are taking this stance.
this will be the first f1 i'll skip since 10. waiting for 15 i think will be much more sensible than splashing cash on both of them
not sure how i can get a hand on this, considering the country that i'm in, hey ho that's life
when it's going to be released, isn't it in september?
