Project Cars 3: Release Date, Career Mode, Customisation, Multiplayer, Trailer And Everything We Know

Racers, start your engines.

Racing sims have always been popular, but they're perhaps even more so with the world in lockdown - what better way to escape the same four walls than skidding around a track in a car that you can't afford?

Project Cars 3, the upcoming entry in the incredibly popular franchise from Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco, has been announced - here's everything we know.

Release Date

Alas, we don't have a release date yet but we do know it's intended for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as PC. That means it's likely to launch before this holiday when new consoles arrive.

Given that F1 2020 is launching in July, we'd expect somewhere around September - which is in line with when Project Cars 2 launched in 2017.


New Features

If you're expecting a po-faced racer, you might be surprised. Slightly Mad Studios have built on Project Cars 2 with impressive new features.

Career Mode

A fan-favourite, Career Mode has been rebuilt from the ground up to make it a more accessible and dynamic experience. Each car can be upgraded and carried through your career, or you can opt to buy fresh vehicles as you play.


While Project Cars 2 offered pre-made liveries, the sequel is aiming to offer much more diverse car customisation.

Expect sponsor logos, official paint colours, and the ability to tweak your number plate. Let's hope "N00B SLYR" isn't taken already.


Online Multiplayer

Trading paint is much more fun when it's against friends or rivals, and with that in mind Project Cars 3 will introduce a new multiplayer suite for online play.

We don't know yet if there will be cross-play, but we do know to expect skill-based matchmaking, quick races and custom lobbies. We're looking forward to seeing the community's best race types.
