ABOUT PROJECT CARS
Project CARS is the first title to be created using the unique
crowd-powered WMD Portal. Already critically-acclaimed as being the
first true competitor to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo and the
premier authentic race experience on Wii U, Project CARS gives
players the freedom to choose their own destiny - whether that's
starting as a karting prodigy and going on to become an Formula
champion within 3 years, to return year after year and defend your
GT title against all oncomers, or to prove your dominance across
six other distinct and popular motorsports.
Featuring a dynamic time of day and weather system, full pit
stops & strategies, fully-loaded online play, a comprehensive
tuning system, over 100 tracks, bleeding-edge physics, and a
world-class graphics engine supporting 4K gaming and Oculus Rift,
Project CARS is the truly next-generation race experience.
WMD (World Of Mass Development) is a revolutionary platform
allowing games to be both funded and powered by the contributions
of actual players.
Developers simply submit their ideas to an active gaming
community that then funds the titles through the purchase of Tool
Packs. With these, those community members then become bona fide
contributors to that project allowing them to contribute ideas,
speak to the development team, download regular builds of the game,
vote on important decisions, collate feedback, and ultimately share
in any profits earned from the launching title.
WMD is therefore a unique prospect for both gamers that want to
get involved in exciting upcoming titles and developers looking to
raise funds for their projects. To see a full breakdown of the
details for both players and developers, plus lots more, please
