One of the strongest features of the upcoming Project CARS 2 is the massive track list. Many of the first game’s circuits are returning, alongside new additions like rally-cross dirt tracks and Japan’s Fuji Speedway. We’ve now got our first full look at the latter, care of the video above.
Rene Rast is one of the professional drivers that work with PCARS2 developer Slightly Mad Studios, offering feedback throughout the game’s development. He’s the man behind the video, which shows off Fuji in full triple-monitor glory.
Fuji is one of the more interesting additions to the Project CARS 2 track roster. Over the years, rumours have circulated that the licensing for Japanese circuits has been difficult for non-native developers. Forza Motorsport dropped Suzuka, Tsukuba, and Motegi when it moved to the Xbox One, while Assetto Corsa has no (officially licensed) Japanese circuits at all.
It remains to be seen if the addition of Fuji in Project CARS 2 hints at a genre-wide spread of Japanese circuits (similar to the explosion in Porsche availability post-EA). We’re certainly excited to see what other tracks SMS has in store for sim racers — which Japanese circuit would you like to see next?
Project CARS 2 is scheduled to launch late 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
