Things have been a little quiet on the Project CARS 2 front of late. Luckily that’s come to an end, after the Xbox Store inadvertently released a trailer for the game’s next DLC pack.
Thanks to a leak right around the game’s launch almost exactly a year ago, we’ve known the fourth DLC pack would focus on Ferrari. The new video shows up on the Project CARS 2 Xbox Store landing page, and one quick-acting YouTube member has already uploaded it:
The video confirms the earlier leaked vehicles, of which there are eight:
- Ferrari F355 Challenge
- Ferrari 512 BB LM
- Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta
- Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
- Ferrari F40
- Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta
- Ferrari F12tdf
- Ferrari FXX K
The surprise is the 250 GT — arguably the best-looking of the 250-series cars. The previous leaks showed the 488 Challenge, though that came as a free addition earlier this year.
Even better, the Ferrari Essentials pack will seemingly add two new tracks to the Project CARS 2 roster. It’s already the best lineup of circuits of any modern racer, so the inclusion of Mugello and Fiorano certainly sweetens the pot.
Mugello is a 3.26-mile ribbon featuring 14 corners, located in Tuscany, Italy. Built in the early 1970s, its a high-speed track with the highest FIA rating, meaning that while it’s never hosted an F1 race, it could. All teams used it for testing prior to the 2012 season, however. Scuderia Ferrari owns Mugello, which explains its inclusion here.
Fiorano needs little introduction. Ferrari’s own test track acts as a gauntlet for all its cars, both road and track. Measuring in at only 1.8 miles, it too packs in 14 corners. It continues the unusual (but welcome) trend of Slightly Mad Studios including test tracks in Project CARS 2. The game launched with Mercedes’ Northern Circle test track, while the Porsche Expansion in March introduced the German marque’s Leipzig circuit.
Unfortunately, there’s no release date in the trailer. We expect the pack to land at some point during this month, however. Could it be right around the time of the game’s first anniversary on September 22? Stay tuned — given this leak, it shouldn’t be long until we find out!
