Project Cars – Community Gallery #75

Project CARS
[AFG_gallery id=’487′]

Another week means another spectacular Project CARS Community Gallery. This week we can enjoy number 75.

the 39 screenshots in this gallery show once more that Slightly Mad Studios have in fact, raised the bar of graphical detail in their pre-alpha version of Project CARS. Their Madness Engine seems to be able to push this level of detail and post effects with relative ease. When released on the PS4 it might just as well become the biggest competitor for the Grand Turismo series.

As usual, all shots show purely in-game footage that has not been made in any special photo mode, using no post-processing or filters that aren’t available during the actual gameplay
