Slightly Mad Studios is ensuring that racing fans won’t get bored anytime soon playing Project CARS 2. Not only will the game feature more than 180 different cars, but the game will also have 60 different tracks to race across, and more than 130 different track layouts.
Bandai Namco produced an impressive list featuring all the different racing circuits in Project CARS 2, along with the number of different layouts per track. Utilizing the Livetrack 3.0 technology, and featuring laser-scanned layouts of each and every track from every single inch of the asphalt, Project CARS 2 allows players to race through each circuit at different times of the day or night, different seasons, and under various weather conditions, creating an even more dynamic variety of intense racing conditions.

Project CARS 2 doesn’t feature much of any kind of major overhaul or improvement over Project CARS, not the way Forza Motorsport 7 shows vast improvements over Forza Motorsport 6. However, if you enjoyed the original game and was looking for something a bit more refined and with additional content, I think the second game in the brand new franchise might be right up your alley.
Gameplay wise, it looks like Project CARS 2 will provide the most hardcore experience from a racing sim this fall. Graphically, it looks like Forza 7 will have it in the bag. And if you just like Gran Turismo… well, Gran Turismo Sport will be available but don’t expect much from it. In fact, in the Forza 7 vs GT Sport graphics showcase, the latter game was clearly out-classed by the former. A lot of that may have to do with the fact that Polyphony had to downgrade Gran Turismo Sport to work with the PlayStation VR headset.
On the upside, if you own a beefy PC rig you’ll be able to play Project CARS 2 in VR without any worries regarding the setbacks associated with the home consoles.
