ABOUT

What game is Project CARS like?

Project CARS is a racing simulation so is comparable with popular console franchises Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo whilst also providing the kind of advanced features usually reserved for PC-only simulators like iRacing and rFactor.

You guys made Shift 2 Unleashed – so is Project CARS’ handling similar?
The physics, handling, force feedback, input lag, tyre model, and all aspects of the handling model have been rewritten and improved, with a community of racing fans and race professionals supervising and testing them throughout. The overall result is something far more realistic and responsive.
