Project Cars Playstation 4 Trailer
Move over Gran Turismo your days are over because on the 20th March 2015 Project Cars, a racing sim, will go on sale for the Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. The game has been developed by plucky Brit-soft developer Slightly Mad Studios who said of their game “its the most technically-advanced, beautiful, intense and authentic racing game on the planet that’s been tested, guided, and approved every step of the way by both gamers and real-life pro drivers alike.” Project cars is a community funded and developed game the developers at Slightly Mad Studios also chipped in a bit of their cash without the aid of a traditional publisher. Through the purchase of Tool Packs players can contribute to development in roles including content creation, QA, and marketing media. Members gain special perks, depending on their purchased tool pack. Members will receive a share of game sales profits generated within the first 3 years after launch as compensation for their efforts, to be paid quarterly. The finished product is intended to represent a realistic driving simulation. Project Cars also features a large roster of race tracks more than any other sim of its type and a career mode enables players to choose their own path. Effects include “dynamic weather and time of day” to give as much authenticity as possible. What about the AI? developers always say “its the most advanced AI” but games developers have been saying this kind of thing for donkeys years. Race sim AI is always stupidly implemented. And what about the crash effects? This aspect usually consumes a lot of in game memory so will the developers save memory intensive tasks to enhance the graphical qualities of the game. The “Achilles heal” of any race sim is the sound of the engine, sampling real sounds again takes too much memory so what we are left with is an effect that sounds more like a bee than a V8 roar. Even with the power of the latest gen consoles. We like simulators but in no way are they a substitute for real track racing. Lets hope the game lives up to the pre-publicity hype, many games have been well marketed but end up being real dogs.  Project-Cars-2015
