If you want to play-test Project CARS, Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios release the new Project CARS Pagani Edition, which features several Pagani supercars and three tracks to race them on… all for free.
The update is designed to give VR gamers something to play-test with either the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
You’ll have access to the Pagani Huayra, Huayra BC, Zonda Cinque, Zonda R and the Zonda Revolucion. Each of the cars can be used across the Nurburgring and Nords combo, along with the Monza GP and the Azure Coast. They also included two game modes, the quick race weekend and time trial. YouTube user Massaru Games put together a 10 minute help give you an idea of what the free version of Project CARS is like. You can check out the video below.
I can never get over just how awesome Project CARS sounds. The game has such an impressive audio design and the cars really do roar to life.
Blues spotted the news after the update went live over on the Steam store. The free edition is only available for PC and is designed to highlight the VR capabilities that Slightly Mad implemented into the game.
There are some people complaining that the controls are kind of difficult and that the cars slide all over the place. Some also complained about the lack of proper force feedback for the steering wheel.
There were also similar complaints for the original release of Project CARS but the big difference now is that this version of the game is free.
There really isn’t much of anything to lose to grab the demo and try it out, especially if you have a VR headset and you’re a little sparse on software to fill out your library. You will need about 25GB to install this demo, so make sure you have plenty of free space available. You can grab the Pagani edition of Project CARS for free by visiting the Steam store page.
