“This car is quite challenging,” says our video host for this gameplay footage of the Corvette C7.R in the Project CARS video game, and you could call it an understatement. This video game is very different from your typical Need for Speed or The Crew arcade-style racing games, it’s more like Gran Turismo. In other words, it’s a racing simulator that aims to make the player feel as if they were behind the wheel of the actual vehicle selected, in this case the C7.R.
Now, this gamer has a stellar three-monitor setup with a premium steering-wheel. If you’re going to game, this is how to do it properly, as you have more vision and a more acute sense of control while playing the game.
The add-on (on Sony’s Playstation Network) cost $3.49, and it included both the Corvette C7.R and Cadillac ATS-V.R GT3. Yours truly personally owns a copy of Project CARS for the PlayStation 4 console, and decided to treat myself to the two virtual GM race cars. Now my setup isn’t nearly as awesome as what you see in the video – I have 1 TV screen and I’m limited to the PS4 DualShock controller. That said, you can imagine how much more challenging I found the C7.R to maneuver. It’s certainly not a beginner’s car, as I, a beginner, can attest.
Hit play and watch the video to get a better sense of what the virtual C7.R is like to drive in the racing sim.
