Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco announced that a new demo is freely available for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro owners wanting to give Project CARS 2 a test run using the high-end functionality of Sony and Microsoft’s latest systems.
In a press release, Bandai announced that the demo allows players to take control of the Ferrari 488 GT3, Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, and Formula Renault 3.5 and race them around the laser-scanned rendition of the real life Red Bull Ring.
Each of the vehicles offer gamers a glimpse into the physics and playability of the different racing disciplines available within the game, from street cars to supercars and from supercars to pro-touring racers; there’s a little bit of something there for each type of racer.
Specifically the demo is designed to give gamers a look at the enhanced graphical features present in Project CARS 2, including improved resolution and texture filtering. For PC gamers, 4K resolution and UHD anisotropic filtering is nothing new. However, there is added support for VR gaming on PC to help give the glorious PCMR something extra in which to whet their appetites.
A trailer below gives you an idea of what to expect from the demo on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
You have the GT Racing class, the Roadster, and the Open Wheel available.
The three events across the single track with various conditions should allow you to have some inkling as to whether or not the game will fulfill your needs for a solid real-time racing sim.
Sadly there aren’t many other racing sims out there, and fewer more in development.
The market has been starved for a lot of really good games across various genres, with most of them being overburdened with loot boxes and microtransactions, or cut-content and seasonal DLC.
Anyway, if you have an Xbox One X or a PS4 Pro and you’re curious about whether or not Project CARS 2 is worth the price of entry – or if you own a PC and you want to test out your new VR HMD, you can give the free demo a try right now.
