The holiday season of 2014 looks like another great year for fans of racing games. Last year, there was the double-whammy of console motorsports with Forza Motorsport 5 for the Xbox One and Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3. This year, Project CARS and Driveclub are the new contenders out to challenge the veterans.
Project CARS is aiming to be the next great racing sim. Offering a mix of modern and classic cars on famous tracks, developer Slightly Mad Studios is trying to inject a fresh energy into the genre, and at the moment its game looks ready to take on Forza and Gran Turismo.
We last told you about the open-source racing game Project CARS at the end of December, calling it the Mona Lisa of racing games. That post, which included some beautiful screencaps as well as a video showing the game in action, presented a wide breadth of cars and tracks in stunning detail. Now, we have another trailer, and if anything, the game looks even better.
