Project CARS 2 demo releases later today

Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco announced that the official Project CARS 2 demo will release later today. This demo was designed and created to allow players to get a taste of the racing action on offer in the full game.

As such, players will jump into a Ferrari 488 GT3, Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, and Formula Renault 3.5. Players will also race at the laser-scanned Red Bull Ring.

The three different types of cars offer both a glimpse at the diverse motorsport disciplines available in the full game. Moreover, they showcase the sublime physics and handling of the in-game vehicles. The two track variations, set in a stunning landscape, highlight the visual and handling impact of the peerless weather simulation that racers will discover in Project CARS 2.

The three scenarios in the demo will test players with escalating challenges. Players will experience class-leading physics in various cars and conditions giving them a taste of what the full game will offer.

Project CARS 2 is one of the few games that takes advantage of more than four CPU cores/threads. As we wrote in our PC Performance Analysis, the game looks absolutely stunning. It scales wonderfully on six CPU threads, features lots of graphics settings to adjust, and is scalable on older hardware.

This demo will be available later today on Steam, so be sure to bookmark its Steam store page!
