Sim racers who are interested in joining the Project CARS multiplayer experience can do so by becoming Team Members over at WMD for a one-time fee of 25€. In recent weeks, Team Members have been given access to daily development builds of Project CARS to keep up with the development speed of the title.
Interested sim racers are advised to not wait much longer if they`re planing to join WMD. There has recently been a big surge in community funding as almost 400.000 Euro have been pitched in during the past month alone, causing the project funding goal to close in quickly.
Once the goal is reached, no more members will be accepted and those left out won’t be getting to try the title until it hits the shelves in 2013. Sim racers who want to follow the last year of development and receive regular development builds of Project CARS have a few weeks left to make up their mind before memberships are being cut off.
In the meantime, everyone can check out a new comparison video by DigiProst below as he has paired up Project CARS in-development Laguna Seca track against iRacing’s laser-scanned version.
