Project CARS developer Slightly Mad Studios has rounded-up some of the more important elements of the racing game's core career mode.
According to Slightly Mad's 'Focus On...' post on the official Project CARS website, contracts will play a pivotal role in pCARS's career mode from the very beginning: upon choosing which discipline they'd wish to participate in, players must first sign on to an in-game racing team to race for in their inaugural season.
By progressing through the game's core singleplayer component, additional contract offers from virtual talent scouts will be made, with the type and variety dependent on the players' race results up to that point. In-game brands will also approach the player with 'Endorsement' offers, though it's currently unknown at this moment in time how significant a part these supposed sponsorship deals will play in the career mode.
In addition to companies being featured in Project CARS, Slightly Mad has also commissioned the motorsports simulation publication Sim Racer Magazine to compile news reports for the game's 'Race Calendar', which - according to the developer - will consist of "exclusive media coverage within the game of all the podiums, drama, and atmosphere of your career and events happening around you throughout the year".
Slightly Mad rounded out the statement by reiterating the point that it's designed Project CARS's career mode to "replicate all the flow, the opportunities and the ambience that a modern-day driver gets to be a part of", as well as offer players the freedom to experience the game type in whatever way they wish.
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.
