In today's world of digital diversions, magnificently-rendered racing games have become the norm rather than the exception. Yet when a new version comes along, it's always unbelievable.
Project CARS will hit stores this fall and--if its latest trailer is any indication--it should compare quite well with the latest Forza and Gran Turismo.
Like those games, Project CARS features an extraordinary variety of both race and road machinery, from the stripped-down BAC Mono and fan-favorite BMW 1 M to Formula One cars and the Audi R19 e-tron quattro hybrid Le Mans Prototype.
While it never seems possible to top the last-greatest game's graphics, Project CARS just might set a new standard. Close-up shots reveal moving suspension pieces, and the trailer has plenty of sideways action to savor in slow motion.

Following the tagline "made by racers, for racers," Project CARS won't feature any races against the police, but it will have a career mode that sets goals for the individual player to achieve, and online community events.
Project CARS will be available this November on the Playstation 4, XBox One and Wii U consoles, and PC and Steam OS.
