    Hi Guys,

    There is quite a cool new racing sim in the works by the guys who developed NFS: Shift. Some of the guys at the dev team there didn't like the idea of making a game with great physics and then "dumbing" it down a bit for younger people to play. So with C.A.R.S. they are focussing solely on making a realistic driving simulation experience.

    I have been a member of the donator community for a few months now and have enjoyed trying out the weekly released Alpha versions - here are some videos of mine from some of the earlier alpha builds:

    Formula B (Formula 2), three laps round Bologna (Imola):

    Track-side:


    Onboard:


    Same track, but in a 1968 Lotus F1 car:


    Since these videos the alpha version has gotten the Caterham 7, Arial Atom, Formula 1, GoKarts along with quite a few other cars, particularly Le Mans cars.

    Oh yeah, and the old stig (Ben Collins) is helping with the development by providing feedback on how the physics compare to real life. :D

    You can check out the website for this project at WMD Portal

    Let me know if any of you chaps want to see vids of any particular cars and I will try and make them for you. :)

    Cheers,

    Alec

    i saw this a few months back, looks cool. How far through development is it? what sort of spec machine is this game being aimed at? I see that you can see all the suspension components working and brakes, that's pretty hardcore stuff isn't it?

    This should have released in November, but just been emailed by Amazon who i've pre-ordered with for PS4 to say it's slipped to March 2015.

    Was looking forward to it too. Dunno if Drive Club is gonna hold my interest that long. Back to BF4 then for the winter.

    was a bit gutted about the delay on this but we've got CoD and Halo coming out on the Xbox soon so that'll tide me over
