PROJECT CARS 2 BRINGS THE ADRENALINE OF MOTORSPORT TO THE BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA INC. BOOTH AT E3
Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. Today Announce that Project CARS 2 is Leaving the Paddock for a Worldwide Release on September 22, 2017
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (June 8, 2017) – Leading interactive entertainment media publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announces that Project CARS 2, one of most anticipated racing games of the year, will launch in the Americas on September 22, 2017 and will be playable at the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment booth (number 1647) at E3 2017. On display will be the game’s first public demo highlighting three unique driving scenarios – rallycross, road racing, and multi-class racing – and showcase newly optimized vehicle handling as well as revamped controls. To get a sneak peek at what will be on display at E3, the Project CARS 2 E3 trailer is available today.
Passion for motorsport is embodied in the fan-requested multi-class racing that enables drivers to compete in any car and track in a field of multiple car classes which replicates the world’s most famous endurance racing championships, past and present. Whether it’s iconic cars from the golden age of sports cars, modern prototypes, or GT3, all classes of cars can now race together in either single or championship mode as Project CARS 2 scores the driver’s position not just overall, but in-class too.
Capturing all the thrills of motorsport means drivers are able to competing in any car, anytime, anywhere, off- and-online, against both in-class competitors and other classes too.
Feel the adrenaline rush as you close-in fast on a GT race car in the coldness of night at Le Mans in your Le Mans Prototype; scan your mirrors on a wet day at the Nürburgring as a Porsche 911 GT3 R monster bursts from the fog and cuts past your Renault Clio as if you were standing still. This is motorsport in Project CARS 2.
CAREER MODE SHOWCASED BY E3 SIZZLE TRAILER
Showcasing the accessibility of the Project CARS franchise, the game’s “sandbox” approach to its career mode gives drivers an open path to achieving their motorsport dreams. Drivers can begin their motorsport career in grassroots series such as karts and race their way to the very top echelons where many of the world’s most prestigious brands and cars await; they can choose to begin in any motorsport discipline; or even go straight into one particular type of motorsport, and spend one or multiple seasons in that championship. With nine motorsport disciplines to choose from, a racing career has never been more rewarding or challenging.
Project CARS 2 delivers an unparalleled racing experience for players of all skill levels and driving desires. Players can hop in and drive any car, on any track, at any time. Bleeding-edge visuals, precise car physics, revamped confidence-inspiring gamepad controls combined with advanced and newly refined tire grip and slip physics provide drivers with optimized control and feel in all situations. Recalibrated and highly realistic A.I. make Project CARS 2 the most immersive and technically-advanced racing simulation on the planet.
Currently rated RP for Rating Pending by the ESRB, the race begins for Project CARS 2 in the Americas on September 22, 2017 for the Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PCs via STEAM®.
