Slightly Mad Studios’ WMD-powered Project CARS title has recently been equipped with a brand new feature – pCARS rank.
Inspired by the community icons GPLRank & GTR2 Rank, pCARS rank allows players to determine their performance against their peers as a ranking number is calculated based on the lap times set on various car & track combinations.
Following WMD’s true community spirit, pCARS rank was not just designed in a community brainstorm but also developed by a member of the WMD forum, Kai Lochbaum.
The new ranking feature is used extensively with the Car Physics Focus Testing (or CPFT for short) in which a car that is currently in the focus of physics development gets thoroughly tested by as many members as possible.
To maximize feedback from CPFT and allow for quick changes to be tested, all members are currently receiving daily builds of Project CARS, regardless of their membership rank.
WMD members can now get ranked by setting times in the CPFT events using the in-game “Events” button. And those who didn’t sign up in time before funding was closed can take a peek at the rankings here.
Alternatively, there’s a great new Project CARS video trailer made by Ronny302, showing lots of slow-motion footage from the latest development builds.
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.
