Project CARS: Mercedes-Benz C Klasse DTM-Coupé, Entwicklungsfortschritte, neues Build 663

Die Entwicklung des Multiplattform-Rennspiels Project CARS luft auf Hochtouren. Whrend WMD-Mitglieder aktuell das Build 663 und eine erste Version des C-Klasse-DTM-Coups von Mercedes-Benz testen knnen, kndigen sich schon weitere Autos und Strecken an.

Project CARS: Mercedes-Benz C Klasse DTM-Coupé, Entwicklungsfortschritte, neues Build 663Project CARS: Mercedes-Benz C Klasse DTM-Coupé, Entwicklungsfortschritte, neues Build 663  ZoomSlightly Mad Studios hat zum Ende der Woche das Build 663 fr alle pCARS-Tester ab Status Team Member+ bereitgestellt. Whrend das gesamte Team unter Hochdruck arbeitet, um den geplanten Release im Herbst 2014 zu halten, knnen sich die World of Mass Development-Mitglieder selbst einen Eindruck ber die jngsten Entwicklungsfortschritte verschaffen und seit Kurzem im Bereich der Fahrzeuge auch mit einer frhen Version des C-Klasse DTM-Coups von Mercedes-Benz auf die Strecke gehen. Weitere Wagen wie der Ginetta G40 Junior, Ford Escort RS1600 (1972) und RUF CTR3 stehen ebenfalls zum Testen bereit beziehungsweise werden demnchst mit einem der kommenden Builds enthalten sein.

Wie den nderungsprotokollen der innerhalb der letzten Tage verffentlichten Pre-Alpha-Versionen zu entnehmen ist, haben die Entwickler im Bereich der Fahrzeuge, Fahrphysik und Strecken viele Verbesserungen und berarbeitungen vorgenommen und mit der per Laserscanverfahren erstellten Strecke Oulton Park die Auswahl erweitert und an der Le Mans-Strecke Loire weiteren Feinschliff im Bereich der Streckenrandobjekte betrieben. Darber hinaus wurden in den Bereichen Karrieremodus, AI, Boxenstopps, Replays, GUI und Renderengine weitere Optimierungen vorgenommen, Fehler behoben und Features implementiert oder berarbeitet. Einen ebenfalls betrchtlichen Teil der Arbeit haben die Entwickler zudem mit den Spielversionen fr die beiden Next-Gen-Konsolen PlayStation 4 und Xbox One verbracht. Wie immer knnen die nderungen von Build zu Build nachstehend nachvollzogen werden.
