    Leaked images of the in development Project CARS 2 title have surfaced on the internet recently, showing various vehicles and weather conditions contained within the title.

    With the first Project CARS installment having come in for heavy criticism due to a wide variety of bugs and issues with the title across all platforms, Slightly Mad Studios CEO Ian Bell has confirmed via a recent interview that PCARS 2 is now at the Quality Assurance Process stage, predicting a minimum of seven months for the title to undergo rigorous testing and bug fixing prior to the studio releasing the game for public sale.

    Project CARS 2 is the sequel to the highly popular Project CARS title released during 2015. The game is currently under early development and little is known about what players can expect once the title releases, probably during 2017. It is expected that PCARS 2 will contain similar features and content to the original, plus the following information contained on the office game website:

    • THE LARGEST TRACK ROSTER EVER - 50 unique locations and 200+ courses including 'loose surface racing' on dirt, gravel, mud, and snow. All will have dynamic time of day and weather allowing you to play anytime, anywhere
    • THE WIDEST VARIETY OF MOTORSPORTS with 8 different disciplines now including Rallycross. 200+ cars from over 40 different vehicle classes including never-before-seen Concepts and Banned Race Cars
    • CO-OP CAREER - More choices, more opportunities, more strategy, greater risks and greater rewards
    • SEAMLESSLY CONNECTED - Socialize and compete via Online Track Days, have players from around the world take the place of AI-controlled drivers in your solo play, and get news updates on the Driver Network around you
    • PRO ESPORTS RACING - Skill & Behavioural-based matchmaking, create your own Online Racing Seasons, and Live Broadcast and Spectator functionality
    • YOUR HOME FOR RACING - Your own personal, customisable Test Track to tune and test your cars.

  2. I played pCars from the early beginning (on PS4) and then switched to PC (mainly for triple screens). While I had a few bugs at first on PS4, I had none on PC (still don't). Graphically it is the best sim out there, so I am stoked for whatever SMS wants to throw at me. By the looks of it, it will be worth the waiting period.

    I am driving a lot in AC, rF2, AMS and R3E too, but for some reason (probably the graphics), pCars still feels "home" to me. I just hope they did include triple screen support this time !

  3. I am open to any racing game, just give an option to have the steering wheel without hands, or at least if they insist on having hands at least disable the fake rumbling I don't feel on my steering wheel (like F1 2016). That little thing ruined the experience in Project CARS for me and I can't comprehend how they couldn't give a setting for it.

  4. Are you looking forward to PCARS 2? Yes
    Do you still have faith in SMS following the original release of PCARS and subsequent issues with the title? I have faith. I had no issues at the time i bought it, apart from the AI unable to drive with 250cc karts. No bugs what so ever.

    Very much looking forward, apart from Dirt Rally there is no other Sim out there with those nice weather effects and scenic graphics. Snowy surfaces while foggy, gritty weather? Yes please :)
    Also the best AI by some margin, i had always the most fun in AI races in this title, compared to all other sims.
    Hoping for Rallycross, but properly. Those 2 courses in Dirt Rally just don't cut it.

    Will wait for a lot of reviews first instead of jumping aboard the hype train like I did with the first :( Lets hope their QA works this time :whistling:

  7. No thanks... Unless the almighty descends from the heavens, touches my brow and commands me to do so, only then will I support SMS again (being threatened by being roasted in hell for all eternity and some..). PC1 is still the most beautiful piece of crap I have ever owned. Never again, sorry Mr Bell. Fooled once... you don't get to fool me twice...

    Delete the insane amount off options fiddling your FFB right and it will be an improvement.

  10. I still have nightmares every now and then from PC1 so I don't think this is for me. For the people that consider buying it, be prepared

  11. Which is kinda a good thing, I guess?

    At some point I'm gonna buy it anyway, like almost any other (sim)racing game out there, but my hopes are not exactly high.

  12. It has potential. If they learn from the mistakes and follow half of the constructive criticism, this can work. It will be insta-buy for the fools who still play pcars1 (and buy dlc --') so they have money to invest in something legit. I hope they focus on competing with AC and not simcades from the consoles.

  14. I expect the same load of bugs and glitches as with the first one.

    Btw. they already advertised their last release to have a skill/behaviour based matchmaking, they still advertise it on their webpage, but it's not in the game.
    Multiplayer is a horror loaded with bugs like ghostcars, server crashing, clients crashing, tracks unplayable, player who comes in first is listed 2nd, forcefeedback stops working, tires getting faster when they wear, cars glueing together ... the list seems to have no end even that long time after it's release.

    No thanks. To me SMS is the opposite of trustworthy.

    If the FFB is better then I'll probably have a lot of fun with this one, for all it's faults I had fun with pCARS and got my moneys worth. Taking cars around Arjeplog will be fun.

    I don't have any hopes it'll be replacing any of my other sims though but hey, I wouldn't mind being wrong.

  16. This is my personal opinion only, but they could not get the 1st one right, lets hope the 2nd one is better.

    PC is more a tourist driver, with family in the back game, then racedriver sim, very shiny surroudings, Woods , busses, houses etc shiny stuff more important then real race feel. But ok if you like it for me it was the most wasted money on a so called sim since mankind

    I'm going to join with the nay-sayers on this one.
    PC1 has got to be the worst PoS I wasted money on in 2016 (maybe Black Watchmen, it's a close call).
    Granted, it's a very nice looking PoS, but it's still a PoS. :D
    Added to that the somewhat questionable business practices of Mr. Bell et al, and I'm going to have to see some very convincing arguments before going anywhere near PC2.
