Welcome to another episode of the Team VVV Video Podcast for all your weekly racing game rambles.
This week was of course dominated by the reveal trailer of Project CARS 2, which didn’t disappoint with its dazzling weather effects, a variety of racing disciplines, and the largest roster of tracks to feature in a racing game. In fact, there was so much to talk about that we discussed our thoughts in more detail in our separate dedicated Project CARS 2 podcast.
It’s fair to say that Project CARS paved the way for racing game simulations on consoles, but nothing could prepare us for the surprise reveal of GTR 3 coming to PS4 and Xbox One in 2018.
Elsewhere, we had yet another car pack released for Forza Horizon 3 with the Playseat Car Pack, which added the Aston Martin DB11 to the roster, as well as the revelation that Playground Games is opening another studio to work on a new unannounced open world game outside of the racing genre.
And if you were worried that DiRT 4 was going to be compromised to improve its mass appeal, fear not – the sim handling is said to be “closer to the real deal than DiRT Rally.”
Thanks as always for listening, and don’t forget to keep sending us your questions for the Q&A.
