Project CARS 3 – More Indycar Preview Screenshots
Slightly Mad Studios had already confirmed that the upcoming Project CARS 3 title will include Indycar content. A few days ago, they also shared the first in-game video of the premier American single-seater series in action at the virtual Raceway Laguna Seca.
Today SMS shared some more Project CARS 3 preview screenshots showcasing the 2019 Dallara DW18 Indycar.
The pictured livery of the famous Schmidt Peterson Motorsports #6 car will be added to Pcars 3 as a tribute to its driver Robert Wickens, who experienced a violent crash in 2018 during the 500-mile race at Pocono which left him a paraplegic. Robert is still undergoing extensive therapy and continues fighting to be able to walk again.
In 2012, IndyCar decided to use a single chassis supplier to limit the costs, and to be able to further improve the overall safety for the drivers. The weapon of choice was the Dallara DW12, named after Dan Wheldon, who was the car’s test driver and was killed in a racing accident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2011.
For the 2018 and 2019 Indycar season, all cars were to be campaigned using the IR18 Universal Aerokits. The cars had to be powered by eighter a Honda HI19R, or Chevy V6an engine. Both engines where 2.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 designs, delivering up to 700 horsepower, depending on turbo boost pressure used.
Building on the success of the previous games in the series, British developer Slightly Mad Studios, and publisher Bandai-Namco will release Project CARS 3 on August 28 for the PC (via Steam), Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
While Project CARS 3 will inherit a lot of features from its predecessors, the newborn racing title will also stray from the given pad to better accommodate “pick up and play” gamers. Whether this is a good or a bad thing has yet to be seen, but as far as visuals go, we can already be certain that it’s going to be a beauty.
The game will feature more than 200 elite-brand road and race cars which are all upgradable and customizable. You will be able to race your personalized cars both offline and online on about 140 circuits from all over the world. The tracks will feature day to night transitions and dynamic weather effects.
Pcars 3 will feature a brand new career mode and a new Rivals mode in which you will encounter 10 upgradeable car classes. Furthermore, we can expect new tracks, improved multiplayer features, completely revised gamepad handling for console players, skill-based matchmaking, and better accessibility for new players.
Also new to the franchise is a deeply engaging metagame that challenges players to race hard and earn in-game Credits with which to buy and own hundreds of cars from the world’s most elite brands and race them all on dynamic and spectacular circuits around the globe featuring stunning all-weather, all-seasons conditions.
Race-won Credits and XP will also entice players to buy authentic performance upgrades and customization options for their stable of exclusive cars, including wheels, tyres, body kits, rims, as well as personalization options to create their own racing hero personas.
