A new WMD-made gameplay video of Project CARS 2 has surfaced on Youtube, showing off the Japanese Sugo track.

Apart from the fact that Sugo is a brand new addition to the Project CARS franchise, the video also highlights the powers of the Live Track 3.0 engine. Showing a Bac Mono race, the weather quickly turns from good to bad as drivers start to battle the elements.

Project CARS 2 is now available for pre-order.

The title will bring 180+ cars and 60 tracks to the PC, Playstation 4 & Xbox One, starting September 22.

Powered by the studios’ Live Track 3.0 technology that allows dynamic surface conditions and the title’s comprehensive dynamic weather engine, Project CARS 2 is 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.

The full list of all cars included in Project CARS 2 can be found here.

    I guess this was with dry tires. For wet tires it would have been too much lose rear.

    • HardRock

      It was with road tires, according to the uploader in the comments.

      • Captain Stabby

        The stock tires are Kuhmo Ecsta V700 which are trackday tires. So they do have limited water dissipation capabilities. hence the aquaplaning in the puddles.

      • HardRock

        Thanks for the info, I could only go on what the uploader said in the comments. That does explain why the AI and the player as well had such troubles with puddles and generally during heavy rain.

    The driver did well to keep it under control…on the whole I am personally looking forward to trying this pC2 out…besides I have been getting money deposited into my Paypal account from WMD, might as well give it back to them when I purchase this…lol

    • dalibor

      hehe, me too…
      I was disapointed with pC1, but they improved through time and i bought whole game on discount.
      pC2 is coming amd i think i will give them another chance. iracing and AC fanboy here…cheers;)

    Those brown trees are horrible! IF this is some ugly early whip, they shouldn’t allow it to be published. If that is the finished product. Please hire someone with some artist skills to paint the landscape.

    • winet

      Just goes to show you can’t please everyone

    • HardRock

      I have a solution for you. Don’t race at Sugo in Autumn. The funny thing is that even having that possibility and then ignoring it as a solution for a problem encompasses so much progress in simulation it’s crazy. 🙂

      • Race Nut

        Yeah, it’s going to take a while for people to realize that they can choose so many different environmental factors – never before possible to this extent.

      • todemanjack

        Well, maybe other games beauty has spoiled the gaming public? But different types of trees and even bushes, aren’t all the exactly the same color. It looks like it was bombed with “agent-orange”! Even those with the most meager 3D experience. Like me with Blender. Can make a variety of trees in a single day, and plant them so they don’t look like a bunch of soldiers standing in formation saluting. Am I being to harsh? Not if it gets more sells!

      • anonymouse

        So are you camping this comment section for anything that is not blindly praising the upcoming game?

      • HardRock

        You chose an interesting post of mine to reply to in this manner, seeing how I wasn’t even arguing with the opinion of todemanjack and was merely pointing out the possibilities PC2 will offer us for the first time ever in a lighthearted fashion.

        To answer your question though, no, I do not. Quite a few of your previous comments are the proof for this. 🙂

      • anonymouse

        I could answer a random one, there are at least 4 or 5 answers of yours per pCARS-themed article, so I don’t really care what’s written in it.

        But thank you for confirming that you’re indeed camping these comments and stalking other peoples as all your replies (even to people who didn’t “give” you a notification) is rather quick.

      • HardRock

        “so I don’t really care what’s written in it.”

        Is that the usual way you like to discuss things? If so, you can spare the time of many people here by letting us know.

        “all your replies is rather quick.

        All, except the ones that are not. Like the one you chose, which was written 2 hours after todemanjack’s.

      • Chris Payne

        Good on you anonymouse. Seems you have the job of compaining about pCars2. Just about everyone else here doesn’t have the time to point out tiny little things that annoy you. We are too busy enjoying content people produce. Before you attack me, I was disappointed in pCars (1) but hope for better in the follow up. If I don’t like it, I wont engage, but I ask you – do you enjoy being negative all the time when you have no proof? Personally. I’d rather be optimistic

      • anonymouse

        Why should I care about what you enjoy and why should you care about what I don’t enjoy?

        I haven’t posted in weeks and all you do is attack me?

      • Chris Payne

        Sorry I don’t watch what you do and don’t post. In this thread, you are totally negative. Why? It is pretty depressing to read how people hate this and that all the time. Most of us would rather check in, see what is looking good and get some enjoyment from that. Then go back and use what we already have. If you don’t like something you haven’t paid for, just don’t buy it. This complaining, and attacking people just ruins the anticipation for most folk, who are then put off from even commenting.

      • Chris Payne

        PS: I will stiop posting now, thanks for depressing me even futher, because all the complainers mean that people who try to make good stuff probably give up

      • anonymouse

        Oh cry me a river, would you? First of all, I wasn’t being negative towards the game. I was questioning another person why he camps the comment section waiting for anyone to post the smallest critic to immediately jump on him/her.

        Now you come here aswell saying that not only I can’t ask people questions, but that I shouldn’t be “negative” because you don’t like it? I don’t really care to burst your precious bubble, I’m not interested in this game, and you shouldn’t pay attention to me or anyone who express criticism towards a product that so far has had a bumpy ride to say the least if it means you being sad about it.

        Who cares? You like a game? Buy it and play it. I’m not going to kill myself just because you like something I don’t. But instead, I have to read this nonsense of yours over the fact that criticism and/or skepticism isn’t welcomed because you said so.

      • melanieuk1

        God forbid in project cars 2 racing in Winter, the tree’s get covered in White snow.

      • HardRock

        Yeah, but I’m sure it will be a very ugly white. 🙂

        Disclaimer for anonymouse: this was a joke.

  • Leynad

    I know this kind of partly weather-effects from Dirt 4 already, but wasn´t helping the sales so far…

    • HardRock

      What do you mean by partly?

      • Leynad

        Variable weather on different parts of the track.

      • HardRock

        Gotcha. I would bet however that localized weather isn’t really there for sales, but for accuracy. The primary goal with features like this isn’t to reach a wider audience (although among the small subset of simracers it should help). How the events are structured, the ease of use of menus, easily understandable options and driving assists for example are much better ways to do that in a sim. For a sim accuracy should never be compromised because the majority out there don’t care for it.

        Also, does Dirt 4 really have localized weather? I know it is dynamic, but from what I’ve seen so far in videos (I don’t have it, yet) the weather is the same across the whole track, only changes with time, not location around a stage.

  • Glen Orpheus

    Proper triple screen support, good physics and coupled with good FFB and ill part with my money
    Please get it right this time, my fingers and toes are crossed (“,)

    • HardRock

      I asked specifically about triple screen support again now that WMD members are given free rein to release videos. They still can’t discuss features directly and no videos yet of triple screens, but I read multiple confirmations from WMD peepz that indeed this time around the heavy distortion is gone due to all monitors being treated as a separate viewport and there are also options for monitor size, distance, bezel width, etc, all per monitor.

      • Glen Orpheus

        oooo you just made me go all tingly (“,)
