    Bandai Namco has announced the official release date for Project Cars on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and has revealed the career mode trailer and full track list.


    As you can see in this tweet from Bandai Namco UK, the publisher confirmed that the title will be available on May 8th on all platforms except for Wii U.

    From the wording it looks like the publisher has set the release date in stone, and hopefully we won't see any more delays. There's only so many times you can delay a game before the audience loses interest.

    SMS also revealed the trailer for Project CARS' career mode. The format reminds me of Grid, with you progressing from class to class by completing events in each category. Not the most interesting career mode if you ask me, we were hoping for something a bit different, a bit more 'next-gen'.

    The team also revealed the full tracklist for the game, announcing that the game has 'gone gold'. Fictional circuits are shown in italics.

    so -- acknowledging that im very relieved w/ this (& surprised tbh based on stuff id read last week re controller support) -- it only hits me now how bothered i am by the lack of a license for suzuka. possibly my favorite track in the world but how can it be more than spa/monza? (i know the answer is "they charge more" but you know what i mean)

    i dont know the details but from the way it sounds, SMS ended up being constrained budgetwise more than they mayve thought they would be, is there any chance a license is acquired down the road?

    It`s probably more likely it`ll come as dreaded DLC somewhere down the line.

    Sakitto has been reworked to not be Suzuka. There are some "aspects" of Suzuka in it, but overall it's a much different track that is inspired by Suzuka. SMS is still working on licensing so the real Suzuka may still happen.

    You can do rolling starts..

    Well it certainly wasn't delayed for livery licenses. I've never heard of Masculin Tires (Couldn't obtain rights to Michelin??). I wish I wasn't such a stickler for details because this game has them in beautiful track displays, only to ruin the experience for me by not using real Livery/Sponsors on the Cars. Has a real EA feel to it. Call me a Sell-Out but I'll stick to NASCAR probably.

    I was under the impression pCars was not mod-able/mod-friendly.

    Yes I know hacking will happen... or will it?

    Jesus. We already have a game for "pretty cars" and painters. It's called Forza. I'll take physics and PC like options on the console anyday.

    I am always very luke warm about any game that is deliberately mod-unfriendly.
