It’s (most likely) happening this time! After a few delays that pushed the release from the Fall of 2014, to early Spring of 2015…to later Spring 2015, Project CARS has reached gold status and is set for release.
‘Gold status’ is a term used in the gaming industry to signify a game is done and all the different retailers are ready to release it. Project CARS will be released world-wide on Steam on May 7th. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC boxed and digital versions release will be staggered starting on May 7th. Europe and Australia will get it first on the 7th, followed by the United Kingdom on the 8th and lastly the United States and Canada on the 12th.
Along with the release date announcement, the final track list has also been announced. With over 30 locations and over 110 different courses, Project CARS is touting its list as the most diverse out there today. While I’m not 100% jumping on that bandwagon, they do have a lot of great tracks including the Nordschleife, Spa, Brno, Circuit de la Sarthe (24 Hours of Le Mans), Donnington, Monaco (Azure Circuit), Mount Panorama, Watkins Glen, Road America, Monza, Imola and Silverstone.
The entire list can be seen here. Let the countdown begin!
