2014 was quite a strong year for racing games as we got games like Mario Kart 8 early, followed by the excellent Forza Horizon 2. Driveclub struggled massively at launch, but has really become quite impressive after updates, specifically with the addition of dynamic weather. As we move into 2015, there is yet another racer in our midst that we can expect with Project Cars, which looks to challenge Driveclub’s excellent weather feature.
Accumulated by DualShockers, multiple YouTube channels have posted examples of the dynamic weather that will be found within Project Cars when it releases in March. Even better, these clips showcase the game in full 60 fps on PC, which the developer Slightly Mad Studios hopes to have in the console versions as well.
The dynamic weather looks like it will truly shake up the driving in Project Cars, with heavy rain greatly impacting driving conditions. This level of realism is excellent for a racer where you will be keeping your eye on the track at all times to win the races.
Driveclub already set a precedent for the dynamic weather in a racer, so we will have to wait and see just how it turns out in Project Cars when it releases on March 17.
