The game was was originally scheduled to be released in November last year, but several delays saw the game pushed from March to April, before finally being slated for a release date in May.

Project Cars offers players a choice of 65 vehicles in the main game, while those who pre-order or buy a digital copy will unlock even more. In addition, all players get one extra car, the W Motors Lykan HyperSport, as part of the developer’s DLC plan to deliver free cars every month.
Developed by Slightly Mad Studios, Project Cars will feature 110 courses and 30 locations for players to race in. These are based on real locations around the world, including Nürburgring in Germany, Zhuhai International Circuit in China, Chesterfield in the United Kingdom, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.
The game will run on 1080p on PlayStation 4, 900p on Xbox One, and up to 12K on the PC. Both console editions will run at 60 frames-per-second, while the framerate on the PC version will be dependent on the hardware.
