New Project CARS Videos Show Impressive Visuals, Enormous Crashes, Replays and New Engine Sounds

As testing continues, more gameplay videos of Slightly Mad Studios’ Project CARS are released by those that already have their hands on the pre-release code of the game, and some show some very interesting elements.

In the videos below, courtesy of YouTube users 8O0I0O8Marco SantambrogioOzelot STiredLlama91ApriliaRs and anTEX891, we catch another glimpse on the game’s impressive visuals, but that’s not all.

In the first clip we can see an enormous crash at the first corner that involves basically every AI car on the starting grid. It definitely shows that the AI still needs some work (but we already knew it’s not finished yet), not to mention the advanced visual damage model that includes debris and detached parts flying around after a crash.

We also get to check out a replay, that looks definitely nice even if the feature still requires further polish: in a few frames you can notice the cars warping slightly as the engine recalculates their position on the track.

The last two videos focus more on the audio, showcasing the new engine sounds of the  BMW M3 GT, introduced with build 641.
