    Project C.A.R.S - Community Assisted Racing Simulator (UPDATED!)

    Have you guys heard about this game? Well if you didnt then you are missing a 10€ bargain !

    It's being developed by Slightly Mad Studios (the same producers of Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed but without EA behind them) and it is being supported by the community using a system alike Kickstarter Project called World of Mass development.

    If you help them fund their project you are not only able to play the pre-alpha now (yes you can play it already) and get weekly updates with new features and try them out, you will get aswell some perks depending on how much you help them with, free game copy, your name as a AI, exclusive cars and tracks and the ability to participate on special events!

    So far they have gathered around €2.9Million with the support of the community and acquired licenses for over 50 cars including some of the most emblemating racing cars.

    This is their concept:

    Everything i've seen looks amazing, look at the quality and detail put in those cars and all of these pictures where taken ingame!

    And it's not just this, the physics aswell look and feel brilliant with every piece of the suspension working in real time with a 600hz refresh rate!
    If you have a wheel from fanatec you are going to be blown away !

    Man we at the forums are having a massive poll about what cars we want ingame for a long time, so far they got 2 brands we wanted BMW and Fords, we really hope alfa is next since most of the game carreer goes through competitions were alfas exists in a large scale!

    Poll if you would like to participate. http://benobro.org/_pcars/showMake.php

    looks like a real potential PC alterantive to Grand Trismo..


    if so... they'd be a winner in my books...

    Yeah, it does look like a nice game, doesn't look community assisted at all, looks really professional. Shift 2 Unleashed was a good game.

    Community assisted doesnt mean the community makes models or something, we help them with reference images for tracks and cars.
    We suggest changes to the game, give feedback on requested items, help new members and in return we get weekly builds and constant feedback of what they are doing and planning. :p

    About being a substitution to Gran Turismo for PC it wont be a car collectors game, maybe if this one succeeds they make it for the pCars 2.0 :)

    So are they going to sell the game once they complete it?
  9. Leviathan-

    Leviathan- New Member

    Yeah they will, estimated is around March 2013 unless something major happens. It will come out for PC, PS3, XBOX 360 and Wii U.

    Again the PC is neglected. :(

    Ah, then it won't matter even if there's tonnes of Alfa Romeos in it. :(

    LOL Sorry big mistake by my part !! It will be available for PC i just forgot to place it in the list since it was already mentioned in the main post :p!
    You can even play the game before it comes out if you want, its currently in a closed alpha state. Theres alot of people playing it but unfortunatly theres no MP yet, you can only beat records for the moment but the MP is coming fast !

    About the Alfas, they will have GT Cars and we all know that Alfas were a important part so even tho theres nothing now we are still voting in the internal polls for the devs to get a licence for!

    EDIT: September update !

    Hey everyone got some new updates about the project!


    It is getting along pretty nicely with daily updates by the developers.
    They have been teasing us with the progress on the BMW M1 Procar the BMW Z4 that will be soon in-game and available to play (there’s more @ the forums but I can’t show them).

    Amazing the amount of detail these guys place into a car with even the tiniest bolt being carefully placed on the right spot !
    They also have shown us some updates on the tracks, in particular Nordschleife, Bathurst, Spa francorchamps, Laguna Seca but some of the shots are so early that I cant publish in here L but they are on the forums available to anyone who wants to join the project. Here’s some shots that can be seen:

    There’s a lot of new screenshots taken by the community also that look amazing, some cool new videos and (the best part in my opinion) panoramic/interactive shots from some of the tracks by Sagedavid the founder of the Facebook Project Cars Fan Group check it out below:

    7 September - THE BMWS ARE HERE !

    They are still in a very early stage of development but the Devs couldnt resist the pressure made by the community and released our beloved BMWs!

    note: Theres still more BMW's in the assembly line like the BMW 1M!

    They also included alot of fixes/improvements to some of our favorite tracks and changes to the Force Feedback with new settings that hopefully will give a better feeling, the devs are requesting feedback from the community in the forums in order to get them even better.

    Ps: Im not trying to bump the thread (wouldnt make sense since its in the 1st page) , just posting an update with some cool info since everyone loves BMWs!
