Not long ago, we reported on an intriguing new snow track revealed in Project CARS, but with no name and only a handful of screenshots to speculate over, it came across as an almighty tease on Slightly Mad Studio's part. However, thanks to some photos posted on their Facebook page, we now have a more vivid idea of what to expect.
Revealed as the Caucasus Mountains track, the new screenshots give a thorough tour of every nook and cranny of the diverse high speed circuit. Admittedly, snow doesn't feature quite as prominently as we might have hoped, but judging from the screenshots there looks to be a broad mix of wide open roads, tunnels and snowy mountain inclines, with the change in terrain no doubt adding to the challenge.
Graphically, it all looks pretty stunning, but then that's nothing new for Project CARS, although it's refreshing to see some screenshots focus on a track as opposed to Project CARS' impeccable car models. Of course, it's hard to properly judge the track without any gameplay footage or a chance to drive it ourselves, but with the standard now set for Project CARS' assortment of fictional tracks you have to wonder what else we can look forward to in conjunction with the real life circuits.
As of yet, Caucasus Mountains isn't available to WMD members. The track modeling looks virtually complete to us, though, so it's surely a matter of time before the community will get to thunder along those beautifully-rendered mountain roads in what is arguably the best looking track in Project CARS to date.
Its a shame that they're shutting down but it should mean that Raceroom improves as in my opinion its lagging behind the other main sims (surely this must be the main cause for their bankruptcy?) The game has potential and an acceptable amount of content to buy, however I think the prices for individual cars and tracks is a little steep considering the quality of them compared to Assetto Corsa...
Always feel these sorts of packs are all very,,,meh. But how you can include a Merc in a "Best of British" baffles me, regardless of where it was built. Surely there are better example of British sportscars from the past that can be used? Anyway, microtransactions are the way forward and I like DLC but throw in a track or something, no?
Just need the games room to be sorted...might have to just check this out on a friends setup instead. ;o)
...and less shiny graphics. Not everything in real life looks brand new all the time.
Always like it when a new potential big-hitter arrives on the scene for what is already seen as a market dominated by Forza and GT. Really very interested to see how this looks when its released on console.
