The pricing tiers are roughly as follows

Short of the latest Zelda and Mario Kart 8 (which both came with a free tablet) - the most expensive game ever?

NO. IN FACT ITS MORE EXPENSIVE THEN THEM!

Not a bad selection.

The track list interests me the most -

Monza historic, whilst prevalent on PC sims hasn't been seen on console (i don't think AC has it?) and neither has Spa which is a very fast 12km track. Spa and Monza did make the Project Cars BETA but got removed late in testing.

 

Knockhill also makes an entrance - another classic circuit for the slower race cars.

 

Lets hope they nail the handling and gamepad use better (they say they have of course).

 

 

It should be said that plenty of us didn't race this like we should have sadly but maybe this one will bring us back for more racing action.

ISR are one of the premier sim racing sites.

It should be stressed the Mclaren had a lot of work done on it (with some test driver or technician guy).

so fingers crossed some consistency comes into the cars

 

The fact they've programmed "bite" into the tyres seems to suggest they're very close to nailing the overall drive.

Really hoping for good things with PC2 - and that video by ISR has me hyped up!

 

Encouraging to see all the demos using Oculus Rift's  too - being designed for VR from the outset makes me confident I'm going to have a great time!

Spent quite a bit of time last night lapping some of the cars round the Nurburgring in Autumn with the latest build. Not sure how much I can say due to NDAs but there's nothing to worry about here. FFB is much easier to setup now (single menu with minimal options), VR is ace and the handling model is lovely.

News update today! Still very much looking forward to this - especially after having played a near-final build yesterday :D (Ask away!)

The popular career mode from the chart-topping Project CARS returns for Project CARS 2 with fan-desired improvements, careful refinements and all-new features to faithfully echo the motorsport careers of real-world drivers like no other racing game.

 

The refinements and new additions to the solo career in Project CARS 2 have been made to both enhance the experience of the ultimate driver journey and to empower drivers with more room for progression.

 

Project CARS 2's single-player career mode now spreads 29 motorsport types out over 6 Tiers and 5 unique disciplines to create a deeply engaging, challenging and satisfying solo experience. Drivers can choose to race their way up through grassroots motorsports such as Karts, Formula Rookie or Ginetta Juniors, all the way to the very top echelons of real-world-based motorsport series such as IndyCar, and the GT3-based Pirelli World Challenge, or they can simply jump straight into more advanced Tiers to enjoy shorter action-packed careers.

 

The ultimate driver journey is to enter the pantheon of motorsport legends. How drivers win one or all 7 Lifetime Goals that will define their legacies is up to them.  Dominate the same championship year-on-year, win three blue riband events on the motorsport calendar such as the Indy 500 and Le Mans 24 Hours, become a factory driver for elite brands such as Ferrari and Porsche, or seal immortality with wins in three different motorsport disciplines—the challenges have never been greater, or more appealing.

The core of the driver’s career in Project CARS 2 is the Tier system that has been carefully fashioned to model that encountered by real-world drivers. Drivers can choose to follow one motorsport discipline all the way from Tier 6 to Tier 1 (GT cars for instance), or jump between the 5 disciplines and race in open-wheels, GT, prototypes, rallycross, and touring cars, ensuring a depth of motorsport like no other racing game.

 

The Tier system has been subjected to a careful overhaul in order to empower drivers to sample a far greater selection of the 180-plus cars and 40 tracks on offer in their main career stream. This also now includes “modern classic” revival-style race series which includes Group 5 GTs, Group A touring cars and Group C prototypes, closely echoing real-world historic events that feature upcoming stars and grizzled veterans racing sublime historic cars on modern circuits.

 

Each Motorsport Series in Project CARS 2 will also present drivers with a new option to either run a full or shortened calendar. Additionally, drivers can also scale the duration of each race and also enable or disable practice and qualifying sessions at the start of each and every weekend.

 

The popular contract-offer system from Project CARS is also set to return, but has now been refined to ensure drivers have far more choices with which team they sign up for as they advance through their careers. Drivers now choose the car they want to drive in a specific series and they will be presented with the teams that have open seats in their desired car and series.

 

Also new to Project CARS 2 is the Manufacturer Drives that sees 14 of the world’s most iconic auto manufacturers: Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin and more…invite drivers to take a series of epic challenger events - rise to the challenge and become a fully-fledged Factory Driver. The events themselves are themed to represent classes that each manufacturer is known for, such as Nissan and its Historic Touring event, Group C prototype event and modern GT3.

 

The popular Invitational Events where drivers’ achievements throughout their careers unlock races that can be entered away from the normal career flow is also back but more improved. These voluntary events can now be entered at any time and drivers can play them as often as they want. These have been created to represent the variety of motorsport categories and car classes that drivers wouldn't typically race in their core career.

 

Drivers will also be racing for Trophies, Lifetime Goals and Accolades as they progress through their career, and will enjoy new and exciting ways to track their stats and achievements both online- and -off.

 

The career mode in Project CARS 2 has been created to be the most accurate representation of a real-world driver’s career path while tailored to meet Project CARS 2 drivers’ individual needs and desires.

 

Key Features:

- The Pinnacle Of Authenticity: Created by gamers and fine-tuned by pro drivers. Featuring class-leading visuals, 1:1 digital craftsmanship, precision physics, challenging AI, and dynamic real-time vehicle and weather-surface conditions.

- Over 170 licensed cars from the most iconic brands

- Largest track roster of any console racing game ever

- Full VR headset and 12K resolution (PC only) support

- Revamped controller pad handling

- The Heat Of Competition: Discover your ultimate driver journey and test your skills against the most intense competition to become the next motorsport hero. Project Cars 2 was built from the ground-up with e-Sports in mind.

- All-new vehicle types & motorsport classes, plus old favorites (Rallycross, IndyCar, and more)

- Compete against friends online across a wide selection of vehicles on tarmac and off

- Robust e-Sports functionalities and all-new online championships

- The Power Of Conditions: Race without boundaries – Anytime, anywhere, with any car. Day or night, wet or dry.

- Race on varying track surfaces including ice, tarmac or dirt tracks

- LiveTrack 3.0: Dynamic road surface transitions aff ect vehicle performance, grip, and handling in real-time with bleeding-edge tire physics and surface deformities

- Full 24-hour cycle faithfully recreates the atmospheric conditions and ambience of a specifi c time of year

- Dynamic time-of-day, weather, and seasonal race conditions

 

Project CARS 2 is slated for a worldwide release on the 22nd September, 2017.

With no mention of it being workable on a pad I'm out. These guys fucked up both NFS games they made on consoles and the Xbox version of P Cars. Maybe I'll give it a look post One X release and after numerous patches but with this, FM7 and GT:S launching all within a month of each other it's a good time to be into racing.

I have to correct you there, Boozy: Slightly Mad has stressed from the gameplay reveal (last February) how's they're focussing on making PCARS 2 much better playable for pad users. 

And they're delivering in my opinion: I played the console version with a pad and it was fine, even with some assists switched off. Much more like your Forza and GT experience - though with much better physics and a ginormous track selection.

 

It's been sad to hear the Xbox One version of PCARS was so fucked as I had hundreds of hours of excellent fun with it on PS4 - as many forumites here can acknowledge :)

 

But as you say: with Forza 7, GT Sport and not to mention F1 2017 (and maybe even the likes of Need for Speed: Payback and WRC 7) it's a great time for racing games.

I'm quite confident to say PCARS 2 will 'come out on top', though.

Have they made karts less awful?

 

PCARS 1 you had proper fast shifter karts racing on course that'd be tight for a prokart and it was laughable.

 

And with it looking increasingly likely that KartKraft will never see a release, we need a good kart game.

I've just tried the karts and they seem fine to me.  They are single speed now which is a big change from the first game and the speed seems realistic from my limited karting experience.  Mind you, I didn't think they were either 'awful' or 'laughable' in PCars 1 so YMMV.  I'm going to miss the shifter karts actually, especially the mental super karts.

 

Pad controls also seem decent and it feels like Forza used to (I think).  I'm not the best person to judge though, as I've been using a wheel for many years and using a pad on a driving game feels pretty horrid for me.  Were there any pad/car combos that were particularly bad on the first game?  I could give them a run out if anyone has any requests.

 

I have to say though. I've been playing this a lot over the past couple of weeks, and it is so much better than the first game.  The amount of different weather/season/time of day options are staggering (you can play any track at any time of year and with any weather conditions, including full blizzard).  Live track 3 seems like very impressive tech, the races I've had in career mode which have gone from wet to dry and vice versa have been really enjoyable and it happens in what seems to be a very realistic manner.  I know from reading comments on the dev forum that it can be raining on one part of the circuit but not on another as the weather moves in realistically with wind direction.

 

It has full multi-class racing options so you can set up WEC style races with up to four different classes.  Any options you choose for a race can be saved into favourites so they can quickly be chosen again in the future.  There's also an option which makes pit stops fully controllable, which I love.

 

Race highlights so far include a multiclass race (GT3, LMP1, 2 & 3) at Le Mans where I sped up the time so that I could see the sunset and race into the night.  Finished third in the GT3 class and getting passed by the LMP cars in the night was nerve wracking.  Also did a 10 lap race at the Nordshleife earlier today, with a full GT3 grid of 30 cars.  Again, raced into the night and through to the morning.  Unfortunately I made a mistake on around lap 7 and hit the wall pretty hard.  Managed to make it back to the pits but the car was too badly damaged and was retired by the team.  I think this is new stuff too, never saw that happen in the first game!

 

The only thing I've seen so far which needs a little work is the AI.  They're fine when they're racing on their own and I've seen them make mistakes by themselves so the core of the system seems good.  When they're close to you though, they tend to be extremely cautious and will back out of any wheel to wheel situation.  Their pace can also be a little up and down on certain tracks/when the weather changes as well, but I don't think any of these things are major issues which won't be fixed before release.

 

Oh, UI is much better now too.  Things like FFB settings have been hugely cut back which is great as far as I'm concerned.  My wheel feels fine with the game and all I've done is turned the overall strength of the FFB up a bit.  Oculus support is very good and the game runs very well in VR, definitely on par with the first game.

This just gets better the more you play it.  I tried out a race in storm conditions at Donnington last night and the weather effects combined with Live Track 3 are stunning.  There's a dip in the track between McLean's and Coppice where a river of water was running across the track, exactly where it should have been.  I felt the car aquaplane through the ffb as I went through it!  There were also deep puddles on the inside of both parts of the chicane at the end of the lap (I was on the National circuit) too.  Again, you could feel the drag as you went through them through the wheel.  Very impressive stuff.
