Project Cars gets biggest update yet

Laughing Audi way to the bank.

Slightly Mad's racing sim Project Cars has just had its most significant injection of new content, with the Audi Ruapuna Track that's just gone live introducing an all-new track and a handful of new cars.

The new circuit, Ruapuna Park, is something of a rarity in racing games. A short and twisty purpose built course in Christchurch, New Zealand, it currently operates under the name of Mike Pero Motorsport Park and plays host to the great and good of the country's busy motorsport scene.

The Audis that are introduced are a more familiar bunch, taking in the muscular IMSA GTO Audi 90, the LMP Audi R8 that was at the centre of the marque's incredible run of victories at Le Mans at the turn of the century and the beautiful R18 e-Tron Quattro that claimed victory at La Sarthe last year. I love you Dr. Ullrich!

This sequel is slated for release on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Steam OS. It will add all new features like "loose surface" racing with dirt, gravel, mud, and snow courses. There will also be eight different disciplines that now include Rallycross, Hillclimbs, and Touge.

Project Cars overtakes 1m sales

Slightly Mad Studios racer Project Cars has passed the 1m sales barrier after a month on sale.

The crowd-funded game launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back at the beginning of May.

Publisher Bandai Namco has also mentioned it is the highest-rated racing game on PlayStation 4, presumably beating Ubisoft's The Crew and (somewhat unsurprisingly) those bumpy review scores for Sony's initially-broken DriveClub.

Is this the new Logitech wheel for PlayStation 4?

UPDATE: G29 briefly pops up on Amazon before being pulled.

UPDATE: Logitech's G29 is looking more and more legit - a listing recently appeared on Amazon's German site (and spotted by NeoGAF - thanks) giving a proper look at the three-pedal set-up, as well as revealing a 399 EUR price point, which would put it in line with similar peripherals such as Thrustmaster's T500. We're seeking further clarity from Logitech and will update as soon as we hear anything back.

Slightly Mad's racing extravaganza coming May 8th.

Slightly Mad Studios' Project Cars has what would seem to be a final release date, with the racing game due out on May 8th following a handful of delays.

Originally due out last November, the PS4, Xbox One and PC game was pushed back to March, before slipping to April and then to an undefined date in May. There's still no precise word on when the Wii U version that's planned will appear.

Project Cars has impressed since its debut, bringing together a wide array of motorsport disciplines and delivering them with some sumptuous visuals. Last night we discovered the console versions have PC-like graphics settings, and we'll be taking a closer look at the game in the very near future.

Bandai Namco has confirmed the UK release date for slick crowdfunded driving game, Project Cars.
