SimRacers who were planning on giving the first two entries of the Project CARS series a try need to act fast: Both sims are not going to be available for purchase much longer and will be delisted soon due to expiring licenses.
First released in 2015, Project CARS (short for Community Assisted Racing Simulation) was an ambitious project by Slightly Mad Studios that never quite lived up to its potential. The second instalment of the series, released in 2017 expanded upon the first part and introduced several exciting pieces of content but seemed to enjoy a love/hate relationship with many SimRacers. Both titles were released consoles as well, being among the first racing sims to be available on them.
Project CARS will not be available for purchase anymore starting on October 3rd, while Project CARS 2 will be removed from stores even earlier on September 21st. However, the series’ official announcement assured players that both titles will remain fully playable, including online multiplayer.
Especially Project CARS 2 may still be worth getting if it is not yet in your library, if only for the Spirit of Le Mans DLC pack, which adds not only all three works LMP1 cars of the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans, but also a one-of-a-kind recreation of the 1971 version of the track as well as the variants of the legendary Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 that raced there at the time.
Expect both titles and their respective DLC to go on sale with heavy discounts as their delisting dates draw closer.
