What’s New in Project Cars 3, and What Is Maintained?
Great graphics, lots of cars, and a short racing mode. What’s new in the third installment of Project Cars?
It is a little less driving simulator and a little more racing game. Project Cars 3 comes to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So that we burn the tires and run at full speed on all platforms.
All the features of Project Cars 2 are maintained in this series. The main difference is that it has a catalog of 200 cars to explore and various race modes, including short games, free practices, fast races, tests against time.
Besides, in its full version, it will also include multiplayer modes, daily challenges, and community-specific events.
In this game, the dealer system stands out above all else. Your motivation to race is to gain experience to be able to change categories and unlock new tracks.
You do this while saving money to buy new cars, with an incredible level of customization. You can choose the model, painting, finishing, tires decals, and create a unique style for each of your passenger automobiles, or one that identifies your entire fleet.
Each circuit consists of some races and a final, which will open the way for the next challenge. It will also unlock more cars to buy.
Not only is the appearance customizable, but as you level up your cars, you can design them with different improvements. And all this without any microtransaction. Applause for that!
Fast and intuitive gameplay
Project Cars 3 moves away from the simulator genre and more into the racing game. There is not much complexity when you play with full assistance. Accelerating, breaking, moving sideways… not too much science.
Of course, when you feel confident, you can accept a slightly harder challenge. You can gradually remove the automatic assists so that the entire car is in manual mode. However, the controls of this game are optimized so that the experience is not a nightmare.
