A signifacnt change is coming to Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS title as the WMD-powered simulation will be moving to the Steam platform in the coming weeks.
Steam will handle the complete authentication & update process, making access to the development builds for the members even more convenient. Members will be assigned keys based on their membership level, giving everyone access to the same content & perks as they are used to.
Aside from handling authentication & build distribution, Steam will also bring countless of community features to Project CARS, including Voice over IP chat, invitations and other community-related features.
The move follows the wishes of the community: In true WMD spirit, members recently got to vote on the preferred DRM method to be using for the PC version of Project CARS and using Steam emerged as the most popular option, due to the reputation the platform has build among gamers during the years.
Project CARS is coming to the PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U in 2014. More info can be found on the WMD website.
