Project CARS 2: Esports game info


Game overview/synopsis

Project CARS 2 is a driving game launched in 2017 that is admired by racing fans and those with a competitive edge.

It has variable weather, meaning wind direction, snow, ice, rain, the angle of the sun and more can affect the temperature of the track, and realistic handling which aims to replicate the real sensation of driving.

The game features 140 tracks, 189 cars and 29 motorsport series, giving gamers a lot of choice.

A new Racing License Accreditation system allows players to track their online motorsport career, with their skill level tracked for better matchmaking, and a safety rating tracked to remove toxicity from the playing experience.

Tens of thousands of dollars in esports prizes have been handed out, and a new director/broadcasting functionality makes the game suitable for the world of competitive gaming.

There’s an annual SMS-R World Championship, weekly ESL Cups and dozens of Community Leagues for racers to sink their teeth into.


Blurb

Building on the success of 2015’s chart-busting debut, Project CARS 2 pushes the franchise and its fans into a blistering new era of motorsport by combining the authentic realism of the world’s most advanced simulation racing game with the pure joy of racing action fun.

This is your ultimate driver journey.
