Project CARS 2 was famed for its massive track roster, as a matter of fact, it holds the record for the largest track roster of any console racing game ever.
Not to be outdone, Slightly Mad Studios (now working under Codemasters) has confirmed the very latest entry in the series, Project CARS 3, will offer even more tracks making it, you guessed it, the new record holder for a launch game.
The British-based developer has confirmed that Project CARS 3 will launch with “140 global tracks” – meaning track layouts. By comparison, Project CARS 2 launched with 60 venues and a total of 130 different layouts.
Furthermore, we now know that Project CARS 3 will boast a total of over 200 road and racing cars which come with upgradable parts which will alter the performance of your vehicle enabling you to race in several different types of events – clearly taking inspiration from the likes of Gran Turismo.
Project CARS 3 currently has a release window of summer 2020, this means we’ll be playing the racing title on current generation hardware – the game has been confirmed for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
The latest entry in the franchise will feature a far deeper career mode experience, enabling players to ‘own, upgrade and customise elite-brand cars, personalise your racing hero and battle your way up from weekend warrior to racing legend’. We’ll have more on Project CARS 3 shortly.
