    my fault with the pit limiter, it seems it's not yet there in v1.3.7. But it will come!

    I didn't want to criticise the review. It's fine how it is.
    I just wanted to add my personal thoughts and giving tips on how to approach the game to avoid frustrations.

    I like how it is praised for its physics but 30 fps concerns me.

    I see that it has Nürburgring, so it has Nordschleife too?

    No, Nordschleife is not part of the GT World Challenge.

    I had the same issue. The guy at the store emailed corporate and the next day he said they "found" some codes in their warehouse. So I loaded the code up and it worked! It might be worth it to keep bugging them about it

    It has the best fov settings of any sim I own.
    In the pits during qualifying pause/view settings and adjust as needed.
    Unless console does not have this option yet...

    We don't yet. There's nothing. I assume it'll get patched in like in AC.

    They're great in AC

    they don't have this option!
    I don't know if it was excluded due to limitations? (bigger FOV = more stuff to render)

    The "Dash View" should give a good default FOV on consoles, but many people like to see a virtual steering wheel.

    I'd like to see the steering wheel but the motec looks so bad in that view dash is my only option.

    I recommend checking out Aris.drives on YouTube for track, car and set up guides.

    https://www.youtube.com/c/ArisDrives

    Additionally there was a guide to Kyalami at the start of the last round of the virtual champ race. There may be others for the other races.

    Yes Aris is one of the developers. Reading his blogs on Kunos forums is also a great source of information.

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask for some help. I'm on the PS4 (Pro) and I can't do the first race of the Career, the one in Zolder (Race 1 of the weekend). Every time I try I'm disqualified when I try to get out of the Pits, telling me that I've been "Disqualified for speeding in pitlane" while the maximum speed is 22Km/h!!! I really don't know what I'm doing wrong!

    The max speed is 31mph or 50kph. Make sure you are below that when you enter, and then when you exit do not shift past 1st gear until you are out of the pits.

    I'm at 22kph and I have the Pit Limiter on… I need to read and watch some user guides, I guess…

    Thats odd, is it just that track? Try a different track in single player and see if it's the same

    Got to 21st in the Special Event 33 hot stint Brands Hatch wet. 18 laps in heavy rain. I was sweating by the end just trying to keep it on the track. Bloody marvellous, I recommend you try it.

    This is one of those games where a bare bones demo with a track and a car would do wonders for their sales. After seeing Jimmy Broadbents review i am intrigued to try it out, including the 30FPS, but i burned my hands on to many car games to take yet another risk.

    Worth noting that his video was sponsored by the publisher...

    There’s certainly a fab game here but if you’re not in a mad rush to get it, I’d wait if I were you until the various bugs are ironed out

    Then you'll end up paying an extra £12-13 for the extra four tracks. Kyalami, Suzuka, Laguna Seca and Bathurst.

    It has problems yes, frame stutter being the big one for me. No joke in heavy rain in the middle of a corner.

    Ran some laps at Zolder at 05:00 wet to dry.
    Loaded up PCars2 in resolution mode and repeated the same track/car/weather combo.
    And damn....this game needs a patch.

    Standard ps4. I love it but the frame rate is not good, but I think I’ll get used to it eventually.

    Obviously this game was made for next-gen consoles and I hope they will upgrade it for free then

    Got it! I did set up a Pit Strategy (2) > Saved it. When entering the pit I chose that Pit Strategy 2 and everything went fine! I don't know if that's the way to make it work but it worked…

    It all kinda depends on the track for me (trees seem to have a big influence). But after playing it for some hours last evening it felt good, the 30fps did take some getting used too.

    No issues with my t300rs.

    The sound is absolutely next level compared to GT sport.

    Here’s a International GT DLC code for PlayStation 4. GameStop gave me an PS4 code first. I had to tell them I had the Xbox copy. Whoever redeems this Let me know if it worked. It’s HB9P-4TN2-8P5Q

    1. And yes, seasoned well-known sim races have more validity than you do... LMAO.
    2. Most youtubers have a agenda ie, Make enough sponsored cash to move out of their mother's shed/basement/kennel.

    Jimmy, has 500k subscribers he will have enough money to buy his mums house several times over by now. He's in the shed because he has anxiety and so on. Just pointing that out :). But Here's a couple of reviews from proper sim drivers one of which is also a real driver.

    My experience gels with these guys thoughts but it will depend on how edgy a person you are will how tolerant you are of the frame rate. Some people can't deal with life full stop when they wake up let alone having to give up 60 frames but I thing for every else they will like it. Some people get wobbly playing first person shooters and so on. These type of guys wont like the frame rate.
