Project CARS Achieves Photorealism - First Community 2013 Screenshots Released

DSOGaming writes: "2013 will definitely be the year of Project CARS. Even though Slightly Mad Studios’ racer is not – at the current state – as hardcore as rFactor 2 and Assetto Corsa, it looks miles better than those two afforementioned titles. Slightly Mad Studios seems to aim for a mix between arcade and sim - instead of a pure simulation experience. This may put off some purists but still, the game promises to be better than Shift 2 or all other previous attempts. Project CARS is planned for a late 2013 release on PC, WiiU, PS3 and X360. And even though we don’t know how it will look on consoles, we already know that it looks spectacular on the PC. Enjoy!" (PC, Project CARS, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Look great but why they only show super fast cars instead of soMe classics?

you dont know cars if you can't see any classics in those photos
RumbleFish  +   625d ago
The variation of cars in the game is very good so far. No lame FW but I can do well without them.
Hasanhastam  +   625d ago
I see some classic zonda R!
inveni0  +   624d ago
There are some classics in there, for sure.

But I'm not sure I'd call this "photo real". That term gets thrown around too much. This does look really nice, but it's still a number of steps away from photo real.

Not trying to start anything I'm a big PC gamer but this game does look like Gran Turismo 5 to me. I think it's probably because it's just still photos, but if you think I'm wrong just go google search Gran Turismo 5 and look at the pics.
Pandamobile  +   625d ago
Are you telling me that two near photo-realistic racing sims similar?

No waaaaaaaaaaay
Jessika_S  +   624d ago
They don't have to be similar just look at Forza and Gran Turismo, Yes they are both Sims but each one has a unique look. Even gameplay feels different.

At a glance maybe. Anymore than that and you can see the lighting in PC is more advanced.

GT5 also cost $80 mil to develop, and I doubt PC will get anywhere near that.
xtreampro  +   624d ago
The problem with most racing sims is the lighting and although the lighting in this looks good GT5's lighting actually looks like real-life.

I'm no fanboy but I've only ever been impressed by Polyphony's lighting and it has yet to topped. I've had my fare share of problems with GT5 but time & time again many devs make the same mistakes when it comes to lighting and PD seem to be the only ones who got it right.

I thought Forza 4's new lighting system would get it right but even they ended up with the over top shiny cartoony look.

PCars lighting looks good but it sufferes from the same problems Forza 4 has.

"PCars lighting looks good but it sufferes from the same problems Forza 4 has."

Its still in alpha.

Granted GT5 is very impressive, but AO is much tighter in PC.

In no way did I notice any over-the-top-shiny-cartoony look in any of those screens. Some low res textures and some environments that need work, but like I said, its in alpha.
DOMination-  +   624d ago
This is obviously better. Having said that the cars look too shiny for me
RAMHAMMERSPAMMER  +   624d ago

@omi25p classic case of console fan boy denial. I hear if you keep it up your console will start to up the resolution ;)
BlackWolf  +   624d ago
Your point again? it's coming out for the three systems. Flamebait post.
Hufandpuf  +   625d ago
The cars look good in screenshots, but in the trailers I've seen, they don't have the exact same level of detail.
crazyturkey  +   625d ago
The pics look amazing, but some IMO can be easily match by GT5

Lets be honest. GT5 looks good for the hardware it is on, but is nowhere near this.

3 reasons why it is not.

1: textures
2. anti-aliasing
3. lighting

Maybe pics may help...How do you make the pics full size? Anyways people can check the GTplanet forums to find GT5 pics on full resolution.

funny thing about the game is thats its a indie developer using dirext x 11 features for this game,and the wii u has direct x 10.1 features meaning the graphics would be on par with p.c so far according to developers ps360 however is direct x 9 meaning its not going to look even as good as the videos, the wii u is going to be the best looking version so far on CONSOLES point of view because it has a big step in graphics over current gen consoles.
NoFanboyRequired  +   624d ago
Lol direct x 10 doesn't have much of a leap over 9. Also, the 360 has direct x 10 capabilities.

RAMHAMMERSPAMMER  +   621d ago

Do notice most PC racing titles have that Forza color palette and also design in landscape/background.

Just an honest observation.
1upgamer99  +   624d ago
Forget the screenshots...watch this..

I think it looks better than GT5 myself.

It does and I will be getting it for the Wii U.
xTHRASHx  +   624d ago
tbh this does not look that much better than games already on the market. they are just slick photographs. the car models are impressive, but the lighting and textures are not above what is currently available imo
Shnazzyone  +   624d ago
Damn, makes GT5 look like shit. I mean there's effort in the environments AND the cars.
black911  +   624d ago
I'll stick to GT5.

remember? they spent $60m and 5 years developing GT5... they released the game with bugs, stupid AI, grainy shadows and pixilated cars and trees lol

...And it still ended up being the king of racing simulators...

And yet... it's still adored by not just millions of gamers, but driving enthusiasts, fans of automotive culture and actual racing drivers.

For a game where you drive a bunch of nice looking cars around a track, it certainly looks amazing.
ATi_Elite  +   624d ago
Those photos are old as dirt!

I've been playing project cars in it's alpha state and improvements are made weekly!

If your a PC gamer then Google the link and download Project C.A.R.S. and play it today!

I definitely wouldn't call them photorealistic. They look a little too plastic.
