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.
