After what seems like an age since the last licencing agreement was signed, Slightly Mad Studios has secured the rights to feature McLaren Automotive's legendary supercars in Project CARS.
As part of the new deal, Slightly Mad will eventually end up adding five McLarens to the game throughout its development phase, ranging from the legendary McLaren F1 to the current MP4-12C and the McLaren P1 that's been featured quite a few times in our Forza Motorsport 5 coverage.
On top of the road-legal machinery, a duo of Macca race cars in the form of the F1 GTR and the homologated 12C GT3 will also find their way into Project CARS via a pre-alpha build.
No time frame windows for each of the McLaren's respective release dates in the title weren't disclosed, though - since we've recently got outselves hold of a top-notch PC setup - we'll hopefully have some footage of the five Maccas on the channel sooner rather than later...
A great classic car, lovingly reproduced and with sublime handling that brings the expected challenge. There are still some aspects I have issues with but either way I'll have a lot of fun driving it and with more video content on the way.
Theres apparently a way to unlock it to 60fps if you change a value in the files and it doesn't break the game like it did with Rivals. Although I don't know how Ubisoft would feel about people doing so, it could result in a ban so I guess its best to put up with 30 fps.
Yes it will be locked at 30fps on all formats, its a shame the PC version has been restricted in this way (much like NFS Rivals) but either way the open world will get good fun to explore. You can expect a stack of videos nearer launch.
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
