Project CARS 2 is an upcoming racing simulator developed by Slightly Mad Studios and published by Bandai Namco. Much like its predecessor, the game aims to provide an authentic and technically advanced motorsport experience. According to the developer, it comes with over 170 licensed cars, 60 locations, full VR headset support on PC, and revamped controller pad handling.
Project CARS 2 includes the latest iteration of LiveTrack 3.0 technology, which powers dynamic weather and road surface conditions, affecting tire performance and vehicle handling in a realistic, physics-based manner. All tracks feature a real-time day/night cycle with varying atmospheric conditions.
