With Project CARS now being pushed back to April 2nd, we’re having to rely more on previews for Slightly Mad Studios’ racing title. Andy Tudor has released a new video, showcasing how the career mode in Project CARS will work.
The Project CARS career mode looks to be one of the most immersive experiences, where you could rise up an 8-tier career, or pick where you want to start. You will be able to select your discipline of choice, between open-wheel, GT, Prototypes, and one that is yet to be announced (I’m going to assume oval racing). As you progress in the career, you’ll be contacted by scouts, looking to move you up to the next tier, until you get to the LMP1 division. If you complete the 8 tiers in 8 “years”, you’ll get a special achievement!
Here’s some info from the video’s description itself:
With over 80,000 players being involved since October 2011, in April racing fans will finally get their hands on the most technically-advanced, beautiful, intense and authentic racing game on the planet that’s been tested, guided, and approved every step of the way by both gamers and real-life pro drivers alike.
