Project CARS Available as Free ‘Games with Gold’ XB1 Title in February

This year has certainly been kind to racers on the Xbox One so far: just earlier this month the Forza Horizon 3 Car Pass was up grabs to Live subscribers for 40% off, and it appears the Xbox team has already outlined its plans for February.

ESL Multi-Class Championship Coming to Project CARS

If one were to make a list of innovations that have changed the way we play video games in recent years, eSports would be near the top. It’s safe to say that eSports has boomed over the last few years and could be well on its way to being classified as a regulated and officially-recognized sport.

Project CARS Hits 2 Million Copies Sold

The men and women over at Slightly Mad Studios had cause for celebration this week, as their 2015 multi-platform sim racer hit another sales threshold. Project CARS first crossed the seven-figure mark shortly after launch in June 2015, and has now doubled that amount to two million.

Project CARS Weekend Challenge: Beat The Stig’s Lap at Oulton Park

Located in Britain, Oulton Park circuit has hosted a number of Formula-style events during the its existence — British F3 still visits every year — before it became widely associated with modern touring car competitions. If driving around this challenging course in an open-wheeler seems to be rather unusual, then perhaps the following challenge should make you reconsider.

Mixed Reality Video: A Run With PCARS’ Caterham R500

It’s been a while since we covered anything related to Marcel Pfister’s Mixed Reality series of gameplay videos.

Ian Bell Teases Porsche Announcement for Project CARS Series

It certainly seems to be a big week for Porsche fans. Hot off their Le Mans win, the German purveyor of sports cars has announced a serious tie-up with Kunos Simulazioni to bring the marque’s best and brightest to Assetto Corsa this autumn. It now appears another sim title could be seeing Porsche’s inclusion soon, judging by comments from Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell.

Inspired To Drive: The Nicolas Hamilton Documentary

We often hear of people transitioning to professional racing thanks to video games. The GT Academy initiative is perhaps the most obvious example, but it’s hardly the only one. Slightly Mad Studios, the studio behind Project CARS, has released a documentary focusing on the inspiring story of Nicolas Hamilton’s career progression.

Feel the Rush in This Awesome Project CARS Oculus Rift Video

We’ve been witnessing a prodigious heat increase among gaming enthusiasts ever since Slightly Mad Studios announced the adoption of the Oculus Rift VR headset into Project CARS, introducing the breakthrough of virtual reality technology into the world of driving games. The tried-and-true method of comparing still images isn’t sufficient these days; here you have to monitor vehicles in motion to truly perceive the magnitude of this technology.

Project CARS Game of the Year Edition is a Sim-Racing Birthday Cake

Has it been 12 months already? Project CARS launched 365 days ago on May 7, 2015 (that crafty leap-year). To call the current version a vastly different beast than the launch title is to be putting it mildly. While many will recall various issues with the title over the past year, what can’t be argued is Slightly Mad Studios’ continued support of the game. Wrapping that all up in a neat package is the Game of the Year Edition, available as of today for PS4, XB1, and PC.

See (and Hear) the Differences in this 4-Way Brands Hatch Comparison

What does a croissant have in common with Brands Hatch Indy, the clipped version of the historic circuit? Well, they both share the same, gentle crescent-shaped figure and digestibility. As far as video games are concerned, digestible content equals popular content, with a number of users continuously returning for another tasty snack. I’m quite positive anyone could confirm that the track in question fits that description.
