Slightly Mad Studios released an in-game video showing a hot lap in Project Cars 3. It was published on July 17 and shows a 2019 NTT IndyCar cruising around Raceway Laguna Seca. The video has so far received more negative than positive ratings.
A lap through the hills of California
The video shows the menu in which the player can set up the driving assists before switching to cockpit perspective.
The lap around Laguna Seca takes the viewer through the hills of California. Just like its predecessors, the graphics of newest sequel of the franchise look ultra-realistic. The environment around the track is detailed and rounds off its amazing look.
Not all fans like what they see
However, not all fans were happy with the presentation as the comments suggest. Slightly Mad had decided to remove certain elements like pit stops, tire wear and fuel wear from Project Cars 3. But even the good-looking gameplay video cannot appease the fans over these changes as many comments under the video suggest:
That closed pit entry makes me feel sad, disappointed. And VERY frustrated.
I don’t understand. Being able to turn off and on drivers aids is something in the other games, so why not have tire wear, compounds, fuel usage/weight, pit stops a toggle feature if game play too overwhelming for some?
But there are also people looking forward to the release of the game.
Loved it 100/100 Stars! The engine sound is fantastic and the hand movements are great. Day-One baby!
