After several delays and for years of development and testing/approval from gamers and racing pros alike, Bandai Namco and developer Slightly Mad Studios are set to finally release their next-gen racing game, Project Cars, in stores from May 7th 2015. To mark the game’s Thursday launch, the companies have released a new launch trailer which can be viewed above.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Australia, who are handling distribution of Project Cars in Australia and New Zealand, would also like to confirm that recent storm activity has resulted in the PC release being held back one day. The PC edition will now be available on May 8th 2015.
In a few short days, we shall see whether their claims of Project Cars being “the most authentic, intense, beautiful and technically-advanced racing game ever made” hold true. With only the Xbox One offering an ideal “current gen” racer in my opinion (Forza Horizon 2), it will be interesting to see what Project Cars delivers the newest generation of consoles in terms of experiences. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U systems.
