Project CARS Racing Simulator As Good As Reality [video]

It’s no secret that video games are becoming insanely realistic, but even so, we are always left surprised when a game (or in this case a racing sim) makes a major leap forward. Take Project  CARS, for instance. It is positioning itself to be a next-generation racing simulator, which takes itself a little more seriously than simply a video game. If this new video from the company is any indicator, we’re prepared to take it seriously too. The video shows the two BMWs on a lap of Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. One side shows the simulator, while the other shows real-life footage of the track. See if you can cover up the bottom part of your screen and determine which is which: VIDEO GAMES: See more racing simulator clips on BoldRide's video game channel
The resemblance is uncanny. Walls, fences, trees, buildings– even spectators, are all incredibly realistic. We would like to see more action from this game to see where it stacks up against Forza and Gran Turismo, but from the looks of it, Project CARS is the real deal. We’ll be sure to take it for a “test drive” when it launches in November for PS4, Xbox One, WiiU, PC and Stream OS. RELATED: Inside "Need for Speed: Most Wanted"
