Project CARS (Community Assisted Racing Simulator) is a racing simulation game. The game uses a new form of community-driven crowdfunding called World of Mass Development (WMD), similar to Kickstarter but allowing the people who invest to make some money off of the game. There are currently over 60 licensed cars confirmed and over 35 race tracks, both real world and fictional.
There will be a variety of modes available in Project Cars, at least 10 total, but not all of them are known as of yet. The ones known already are Franchise Mode, Full Team Management mode and a co-op mode.
- Franchise Mode features a career mode in which the player begins in the Karting world and then progresses into specialized motorsports including Touring Cars, Open-Wheel, GT and Le Mans
- Co-op mode allows one person to be the driver, with the other person being the co-driver
- Full Team Management allows a group of friends to join together and compete in races
Project Cars is set to feature many different cars and tracks, some of which are real and some of which are fictional.
