In the world of console racing games, Forza Motorsport 5 is the prettiest title money can buy. If these screenshots are to be believed, though, it's only a matter of time before there's a new claim to that throne. These images are from Project CARS, a crowd-funded racing title set to arrive on the Sony Playstation 4, Microsoft XBox One, Nintendo Wii U and on PC later in 2014.
And no, before you ask, these are not special renderings. Slightly Mad Studios, the group behind Project CARS, claims that these images are directly from the game and haven't been touched up in any way. That's incredible.
In fact, some of these images are downright uncanny in the way they look. Still, there are some rough edges, particularly in the video below. But with a lot of time before Slightly Mad is due to deliver a finished product, we suspect that the few issues we see will be ironed out. If they can do that, Project CARS could really shake up the world of racing games. Hop up top for an expansive gallery of in-game images, and then down below for a short video, also from in the game.
