The release date for Project CARS is now set in stone: The anticipated racer has gone gold.
It will launch on May 7 in Europe and May 12 for North America, a fact developer Slightly Mad Studios just recently revealed. Plus, they've been offering more details at the game's Twitter page (and summarized by Paradiger ).
The team also unveiled 8 more tracks – including the iconic Nurburgring – and the possibility of seeing 45 cars on one track at the same time! Obviously, it'll depend on the size of the track but it's still pretty damn impressive. One other tidbit for the hardcore racer: Slightly Mad confirmed that pit stops will actually be mandatory in Career Mode. Hell, even Gran Turismo never made them mandatory, unless you count the endurance races where your tires would shred if you didn't pit.
Project CARS is undoubtedly one of the most visually striking games of the new generation. But it still has to deliver on the gameplay front; this is a racing simulator, after all.
