Yorkie065 is back with some more Project CARS 2 gameplay footage, taking us to Fuji Speedway for some GT3 racing action.

The footage shows some racing against the AI at 96 & 90% strength respectively both from the helmet cam inside the cockpit and external view.

Project CARS 2 will bring 170 cars and 60 tracks to the PC, Playstation 4 & Xbox One.

Powered by the studios’ Live Track 3.0 technology that allows dynamic surface conditions and the title’s comprehensive dynamic weather engine, Project CARS i2 able to simulate racing in any weather & season, including heavy winter weather & snow.

Aside from graphics & sound improvements, Project CARS 2 comes with refined physics featuring the title’s cutting-edge tire model and improved AI as well as brand-new gamepad controls & FFB improvements. The new version comes with robust eSports & online capabilities including Online Championship mode, driver rating as well as race directing & broadcast controls.

    What are the flashing blue lights? Annoying…

    • VirtuaIceMan

      Looks like the backfire lighting effect is affecting parts of the car it shouldn’t. Maybe they should have turned the effect off for this demo as it’s still WIP

    • Freddie Seng

      seems to occur when flames come out of the exhausts… Since it’s WIP I guess it’ll be tweaked before the game is released

    • GRaw

      IMO reflection of backfire from cars ahead.

    • Mar Mar

      Safety car lights?

    • Hurdy Hurdy

      He’s racing in an unmarked police car.

    • LogiForce

      Backfire lighting not working as intended (has already been dealt with).

  • BucketCat

    pCARS 1.5 as far as i’m concerned…

    • TripleJay_X

      …straight to humble-bundle on release (+patch no.10) and i might have a look at it. sounds like a joke, but ey, sad truth ^^

    • Richard Hessels

      What would make it 2.0 for you?

      • Leper Messiah

        It would probably take a few extra brain cells in his bonce I reckon, the one he has is all lonesome rattling inside there on it’s own.

      • BucketCat

        Oh noes, someone doesn`t like my favorite videogame! Let`s insult them!

      • Leper Messiah

        Oh noes someone insults a rival videogame to their personal fave which they think has the bestest physics and all other games physics suck.

      • BucketCat

        Where did i insult the game? You take it all way too seriously man, lighten up. Why get so triggered just because someone might not share your opinion? I play and enjoy most sims, but from what i’ve seen from this game so far, i can’t help thinking this is what pcars 1 should have been from the start. So many features promised, so many not delivered. I have the right to be sceptical, and to voice my opinion on here. If you can’t handle other people not sharing your opinion about a videogame, you shouldn’t be reading the comments on here.

        Also, what is a RD bridge? :’)

      • Leper Messiah

        Fair enough, but it looks and sounds like the improvements go above and beyond the original by quite a margin, so not really just 1.5.

        And oh I can give my opinion on your posts can I not? If you can’t handle that then you shouldn’t post comments. 😉

        RD = Race Department, bridge=trolls hide under them. Ok so possibly harsh but I’d just come back from reading the nonsense on that site regarding Pcars and vented a tad.

        But to be fair I’ll apologise for my comments, I should chill out more.

      • BucketCat

        I can handle any opinion as i`m a big fan of civilized discussions. But i felt like being attacked for being sceptical. Thanks for being the bigger man, apology accepted. Don`t let stuff other people post get to you man, it`s really bad for your blood pressure 😉

        Also, you reckon Lorenzo is going to suck on that Ducati? 😉

      • Leper Messiah

        Civilised discussions are always good, sadly usually lacking on the internet and especially so with PCARS!! I have a celtic temper so can let loose at times, blood pressure never goes up unless I don’t vent! 😉

        Been looking at the test times and Lorenzo is doing ok, he’ll do better than Rossi did (better bike now than it was in Rossi’s day), but I’m not sure he can bring the challenge to Marquez, Vinales and Rossi. I actually think Iannone may beat him a few times (hopefully by not crashing into him!!).

      • BucketCat

        I think Lorenzo lacks the mental strenght to cope with setbacks. 1 or 2 crashes and a wet race and he`ll be driving on eggshels the rest of the season. Hopefully we`ll have a amazing season yet again. Huge Rossi fan here, been following him since 1996. So when i saw your profile pic i knew you couldn`t be a bad fellow 😉

      • Leper Messiah

        Yup I’m a big Rossi fan, although more of a Schwantz fan as I got “into” bike GPs in the early 90’s. That’s why I pretty much think Rossi is the GOAT, he rode and won on the old 2 stroke monsters (albeit not as bad as the early 90’s beasts), Marquez would have probably killed himself riding one of those!

        heh, yeah Lorenzo when the stars align is pretty much unbeatable. I’m amazed with his consistency when “on it”, but as you say mentally a tad fragile, again especially in the wet as you mention. Rossi and Marquez can clearly ride around problems, not sure about Vinales’ ability to do that, but he looks the real deal so far. Lorenzo will have to do a stunning season to win the championship. Looking forward to it.

        Got mine yesterday it was 114 over 68

      • RapidRefund

        Actually I think this discussion has been quite civil so far with the negative comments being sublime

      • RapidRefund

        Basically I think all of the established titles have a decent physics set but one may appeal to one’s tastes more then most of the others. I for one don”t understand the draw to titles that IMO have less then what I would consider a realistic tire grip level as I feel the ability to drive the car as hard as one would in RLis essential to proper training for any given car track combination with regards to preparations to run such combinations

    • Chillisteak


      • Johnny Penso

        Because trolling?

      • Deadlydeal

        feel like you are only troll here. Johny lol Penso

      • Ronald Romero

        lol shes the diva at GTplanet, tried to assert alpha female dominance with ian bell, last week, the internet princess is better. Jennifer Penso

    • RapidRefund

      So you really don’t have a grasp on the concept of Sequelling? GTR and GTR2 were quite similar but GTR2 had the added polish from more development hours towards the base project.

    • Rlee

      Glad we got your “expert” opinion.

  • Alexandre Martini

    is it just me or that steering input is as non linear a.f.?

    • HardRock

      Here’s an interesting question for you: How would you differentiate between non-linear and linear steering, without seeing someone’s actual hand to confirm that they don’t just move the wheel more when farther from the center?

      Also, even if the steering is non-linear in that video, I can’t name one racing game (sim or non-sim), that didn’t have an option to make steering completely linear. Given how many options pCARS 1 had in this regard, I’d be very surprised if pCARS 2 would be the one breaking this trend.

      • Alexandre Martini

        the car itself is showing that… i even go further and say it’s VISUALLY wrong.

      • HardRock

        How does it show that?

      • RapidRefund

        Look at Chase view in other titles and it’s pretty much the same. Some developers have eliminated a chase view for the reasons you describe.

    • RapidRefund

      Are you on console?

  • varis11

    Get ready for another brutal marketing campaign. No go for me this time. Really wish the game was already launched, as it’s gonna get 75 % of the “news” here.

  • Jovica Ilic

    Ian said we will never have the same lap in Project Cars as well, but instead we got completely the same career mode, with rain in exactly the same moment. Hope they will improve so much things, as they said, but I’m skeptical

    • Steven Shears

      Well he was right. So right in fact that we never even got the same first corner.

  • sobaphen

    Pcars was a good racing “game” but it had a lot of bugs. Hope they can sort out the bugs, and would be good to have more realistic physics for Pcars2.

    • RapidRefund

      I for one like the physics in PCARS. The weak spots are minimal but yes when on edge you do experience them but that goes for most sims. I am just happy the tires represent fairly realistic grip levels as compared to some.

      • LithiumFox

        Depends entirely on the car and that’s the problem.

      • Leper Messiah

        The thing I notice most about PCARS compared to the other sims is the grip loss is much less on/off. I really like that, I think it was Ben who wanted the tyres to be more “squidgy” (or something like that), I think they did well. I’m certain it’s that “feel” that the hardcore crowd dislike the most.

        I’m trying to finish off my career and having a blast, especially the wet racing which I loath and love in equal measure. I just WISH the weather wasn’t scripted!! Going from a thunderstorm to dry to another thunderstorm didn’t strike me as realistic, possible….yes, but not plausible. I’m hoping that gets sorted for PCARS2.

        I digressed a bit there, the point I was making about the weather was the way it all makes sense with the loss of grip and how it highlights how good the physics are, I often FEEL the grip loss WAY before I notice the graphical representation of rain….could do with some “limited adhesion” flags in the sequel! 😉

      • RapidRefund

        Move to Florida and see if those weather changes are possible. It can be raining here on the other side of the street.

      • Leper Messiah

        yup that’s why I said it’s possible, just not plausible to happen every time. 🙂

  • Dani .

  • Silvio

    An amazing game due an amazing work, thousands and thousands of hours of engineering, computing, drawing, researching, testing for people comments “Pcars 1.5” “I pass”… Sorry but you all say too much bs.

    • Rantam

      Don’t worry. Most of them will end up thinking it’s a good sim. But probably you won’t read any “well, I was truly mistaken about it”.

      And then you have the haters-to-the-end-of-the-world ones, but does these really matter at all? Nah…

      That’s just the way some people is 🙂

  • Ayrton

    As far as sims go, I thought PCars was trash. Sorry to hurt feelings, that’s just my opinion. That said, anything that introduces more people to GT racing (as opposed to just Nascar, F1, or street racing) is good by me.
