Vom aktuellen Build 693 bis zu Build 679 hat sich in den letzten Tagen und Wochen wieder einiges bei Project CARS getan. Auskunft ber die jngsten Entwicklungsfortschritte und eine bersicht aller relevanten nderungen gibt es hier.

Project CARS: Pre-Alpha-Build 693 verfügbar, alle Details der Ãânderungen auf einen BlickProject CARS: Pre-Alpha-Build 693 verfügbar, alle Details der Ãânderungen auf einen Blick  ZoomFnf Builds, eines fr jeden Tag der Woche, mit Ausnahme des Wochenendes, haben die Entwickler des Slightly Mad Studios-Teams in den letzten drei Wochen fr World of Mass Development-Mitglieder die am geschlossenen Pre-Alpha-Test von Project CARS teilnehmen verffentlicht. Nach der Bekanntgabe der Audi-Lizenz fr insgesamt 7 Modelle, durften alle Tester mit Status Team Member+ und aufwrts in der letzten Woche schlielich eine Probefahrt mit dem Audi R8 LMS und Audi R8 V10 Plus machen, whrend der Audi R18 TDI ebenfalls in die Fahrzeugauswahl zurckkehrte. Mit dem Ford Mustang Cobra Trans-Am (1997) gab es auerdem fr Muscle-car-Freunde einen weiteren Anreiz sich hinter das virtuelle Steuer zu setzen.

Neben weiteren Optimierungen und Anpassungen bei den Wagen und Strecken, hat sich von den Next-Gen-Konsolenversionen ber den Soundbereich bis zur Physik und Benutzeroberflche natrlich noch so einiges getan. Das nun aktuelle Build trgt die Nummer 693 und umfasst auch grere Updates im Bereich des Karrieremodus. Fr alle Gamer die es genau interessiert, gibt das Changelog ber die nderungen von Build zu Build im Detail Auskunft. Neben der Lizenzierung des Ford Mustang GT (2015) wurde diese Woche auch die Untersttzung von TrackIR und Sonys VR-Brille Project Morpheus durch Slightly Mad Studios besttigt.
