Now that its release day draws near, details have been released of a Project CARS ‘Limited Edition’ set.
A little light reading…
Enclosed in a ‘steelbook’ metal case featuring publicity and game graphics, the set will include a behind-the-scenes book that covers the development of Slightly Mad Studios’ community-supported simulator – Project CARS: By Racers 4 Racers.
A Limited Edition quintet…
In line with the now-established trend for other high-profile racing titles, the Limited Edition set will also include five special cars. Production and racing machinery features with four cars of multiple classes covering the 1980s to the present day. The pack rounds off with a real legend of racing that will be known to long-term followers of the Le Mans 24 Hours and general car fans alike: the 1967 Ford Mark IV, a technologically advanced evolution of the GT40.
- McLaren F1
- Sauber C9
- BMW M1 Procar
- Mercedes-AMG C-Class Coupé DTM
- 1967 Ford Mk IV
This collection of vehicles from the Limited Edition can be driven anywhere in Project CARS. In addition to, for example, practice sessions and on-line races, players are free to use them to take part in a Career Mode one-make racing series.
It’d be notable for the Procar alone! There’s just something about the BMWs in this game…
For the real ‘complete collector’…
Referring to the designs described for Project CARS, the Limited Edition announcement shows the full set is in fact spread across the four hardware formats that will ultimately play host to this attractive sim. Beyond the racing driver silhouette that all versions have in common, the cases will use the associated colours of their respective platforms – namely mid-blue for the PlayStation 4, green for the Xbox One and a lighter blue for the Wii U edition. The PC sleeve adopts a cleaner look thanks to the lack of company branding and a good choice of colour for the Project CARS logo.
Pre-order rewards for everyone…
Whether considering the Limited Edition package or most certainly opting for the standard release, anyone booking a copy of Project CARS will receive the Modified Car Pack. With restricted access in the real world for most of us, there is a second clear emphasis here that the cars can be used in all game modes.
The Modified car selection looks like this:
- Ruf CTR3 SMS-R
- Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster
- Ariel Atom 3 Mugen
In reverse order, that’s Track Day, all-out exotic and a Slightly Mad Studios-customised racing car – stripped out and tuned beyond the already powerful CTR3!
Project CARS will reach stores on the
14th 21st November, 2014.
