Today, developer Slightly Mad Studios and publisher Bandai Namco revealed and detailed the various special editions for their upcoming racing simulation: Project CARS 2.
The game — which can now be pre-ordered via Amazon for PS4, Xbox One, and PC — also now has a release window of late 2017. Previously the game had a “Septemberish” release window: so whether this has been pushed back or late 2017 refers to this timeframe, is currently unclear.
The following rundown of the game’s three special editions is provided, and in the process a season pass is confirmed.
LIMITED EDITION: Includes the full game, Sticker Sheet, Steelbook™, and the exclusive Japanese Cars Pack. This DLC will feature four cars from iconic Japanese manufacturers Honda and Nissan—two race cars dressed in distinctive liveries, one concept car and one road car. This limited edition has the same RRP as the Standard Edition and will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC only at GAME.
COLLECTOR’S EDITION: Includes all the elements from the Limited Edition, plus a Esport Live VIP Pass, an Art Book, a 1/43 scale model car of the gorgeous McLaren 720S (Diecast in an exclusive SMS-R Stealth Satin livery), the Season Pass and the Motorsport Pack DLC*. Available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
ULTRA EDITION: This represents the most exclusive Project CARS edition ever created and is an absolute ‘must have’ for all Project CARS 2 fans. Limited to only 1,000 copies, it includes all the contents from the Collector’s Edition except for the 1/43 scale model McLaren 720S which is replaced by a 1/12 Resin McLaren 720S (in SMS-R Stealth Satin livery). The Ultra Edition then adds a signed poster, an individually-numbered Snapback cap and a McLaren Sketchbook – which is an official collaboration with McLaren that follows the development of the 720S (the successor to the 650S that launches McLaren Automotive’s Super Series into its second generation) from inception, through design, to engineering. The Ultra Edition is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC exclusively at Amazon.
Project CARS 2 will cost $59.99 USD when it releases. Below, you can check out the new trailer highlighting the McLaren 720S, a new car in the game.
