Project CARS 2
« on: February 09, 2017, 02:52:39 AM »


https://www.gtplanet.net/project-cars-2-officially-revealed-with-new-trailer-coming-late-2017/

Featuring over 170 cars and 60 tracks, the team at SMS has been busy in preparing a huge game that features some mighty impressive graphics, time of day, weather and environmental effects. With road cars and racing cars alike also well represented, it seems pCARS2 will aim to hit as wide a racing game fan demographic as possible. It appears that the title’s catchphrase ‘The Ultimate Driver Journey’ could be accurate based on what we see here.

I end up only worrying about the half dozen or so cars that I will drive regularly.  Will be interesting to see if these guys continue to support Fanatec wheels as well, although my wheel looks like a G29 to my PS4 these days  :drive:

Written Australian hands on preview
https://press-start.com.au/features/2017/07/28/projects-cars-2-hands-on-preview/

Problem is he is not comparing to any other sims.  I would want to know how it stands against Assetto Corsa on console for example, as I find that more realistic than Project Cars 1.
I broke my sig :-(

I remember watching some Inside SIM Racing previews, may have been from e3. They say PC2 feels a lot better than PC1 - both with wheel and controller - but they can't really compare to other games until release.

Waiting for sim racers to review the game, but here is another viewpoint. Game seems to have some graphical glitches, no HDR on PS4/PS4pro (but does have hdr on xboneS), same AI as first game, controller works well this time.

Edit: hdr info incorrect I believe

My goto racer is Assetto Corsa, and what is this controller thing? DriveHub and my wheel!

This review is for pc. Telling it how it is



Given that most of my gameplay would be against AI, I will be giving it a miss for now.

I remember how terrible the controller was in the first game. I put the game aside for weeks until i found somebody's custom settings that they kindly posted up.

I think that hdr info is incorrect as several people are posting about hdr+PS4pro on official forums

Edit: hdr was indeed added in day-1 patch

Really tempted to get this, mostly for the AutoCross... Might get me motivated to set my wheel up again as well.
