Project CARS 2 Patch 5.0 Now Available on PC, Includes Free Ferrari 488 Challenge

Project CARS 2 53 April 5, 2018 by

PC players of Project CARS 2 found a surprise this morning. Slightly Mad Studios has pushed out the latest update — dubbed 5.0 — on the platform first, and it comes with a bonus car.

The update also adds two more layouts to the Leipzig circuit that came last month as part of the Porsche Legends pack. That further adds to the already huge list of tracks in Project CARS 2 — so long as you’ve got the DLC, of course!

New Ferrari 488 Challenge

The 488 Challenge is the latest in a long line of vehicles from the marque’s single-make series. It’s the first of its kind to come with a turbo engine, which also makes it the most powerful at 670hp. It isn’t the absolute fire-breather that is the new 488 Pista, but given its light weight and huge wing, it should still prove the faster of the two.

The Challenge was one of numerous cars that fans spotted prior to release, actually (quickly) showing up in a developer live stream. With a Ferrari pack in the game’s future, many suspected it would join the road-going F40, F355 Challenge, and others from the October 2017 leak. That it’s shown up for free is a welcome surprise.

What About Consoles?

The good news is that the update shouldn’t be too far away for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. Going off the pattern SMS has set so far, we’d count on it being about a week. We’ll have a full run-down of the content then!
