Project Cars bound for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam OS

Wednesday, 6th November 2013 22:53 GMT By Ewan Miller

Slightly Mad Studios, the team behind Project Cars has announced their going around track fast simulation will be going around the track on “next-gen” platforms next year, including the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam OS. The team has promised the new console versions will represent “new benchmarks of graphical fidelity and technical power” as team aims to set a “new standard” for car games. Additionally, the team revealed the Steam OS version will include “specific multiplayer and social features” that are apparently only possible on new operating system.


Ian Bell, the head of Slightly Mad Studios said Project Cars “led the pack” in terms of its “insane detail”. More hyperbole below.

“Whether that’s graphically in the craftsmanship of our cars and tracks, technically in the way we’ve approached weather and time of day, or emotionally in how each car feels and responds to your touch. These powerful new platforms allow us therefore to not compromise on the quality of our vision and ultimately that means players are going to experience something truly breathtaking when they get behind the wheel.”

Given the game is also releasing for the Wii U sometime next year, I’m not sure if the last sentence doesn’t imply that Nintendo’s latest is not quite up to the task Slightly Mad hoped it was. It’ll be interesting to see how that version stacks up next autumn.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    In before ERTH…….It’s a good thing though, if they can get the next gen systems running it, it will up the game in the racing genre.

    Sigh.

    - Denigrating a group of people to a subspecies (fanboys) because of their chosen platform?

    Check.

    - Assuming that they all like the same kind of thing, like some mindless hive?

    Check.

    Wait. Isn’t this what PC gamers are often accused of doing to console gamers? Aren’t PC owners supposed to be the terrible elitsts who do that? I call shenanigans.

    Welp. Personally I have no interest in racing games. Fine for those that like them, though! I hope it’s a good one.

    This is basically bad. Clearly it’s wooing PC gamers to move over SteamOS than PC windows. Well it’s still not too bad considering as PC gamers we can dual-boot. We’ll see how it goes.

    why the fuck would anyone get it on Steam OS if it runs on Windows?

    dont tell me because of those “exclusive social features” ^^

    Poor Wii U. This used to be a semi-console exclusive for the system but now it seems the devs won’t even want to think about that version and instead focus on the high end ones (PC, PS4 and X1).

    Also, they better watch out on next-gen consoles. Forza 5 is already a beast and sooner or later, there will be a PS4 Gran Turismo.

    @7 SteamOS in this case is just shorthand for saying it’ll also run on Linux. If it comes out on Windows, there is no need to dual boot.

    I just want cross-platform multiplayer between the Wii U, PS4, XBO and PC. That’s all I care about next-gen.
