Following the success of its two million sales milestone, Slightly Mad Studios has released Project CARS: Pagani Edition available as a free download on Steam.
Released in collaboration with Pagani Automobil, Project CARS: Pagani Edition is designed to showcase the supercar manufacturer's line-up, giving you access to the Pagani Huayra, Huayra BC, Zonda Cinque, Zonda R, and Zonda Revolucion, along with three tracks: the Nürburgring and Nordschleife combo, Monza GP, and Azure Coast.
“Collaborating with world-class auto-makers such as Pagani is a real thrill for any racing simulation developer.” said Stephen Viljoen, Game Director for Project CARS. “Key to our thinking in creating the Project CARS – Pagani Edition game was how to showcase both the best of what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most iconic car-makers, and the leading-edge technology that underpins our Project CARS franchise. We’re confident that this will be a wonderful experience for those who haven’t yet tried our game, especially in VR, where we are market-leaders.”
“I’ve always been thrilled by videogames, and Project CARS sums all the things that I love about cars: the passion and the experience.” said Horacio Pagani, Founder and Chief Designer, Pagani Automobili “I’m proud and honored to see the Project CARS – Pagani Edition , and I hope all our fans all over the world enjoy the possibility to drive our creations, especially the new Pagani Huayra BC.”
The biggest incentive, however, is that Project CARS: Pagani Edition allows you to experience Project CARS in 4K resolution and VR (though not both simultaneously, sadly) through Oculus Rift or HTC Vive on PC for free. It also seems to be a sign that manufacturers are seeing the potential of racing games and VR as a selling tool.
