Project Cars 2 is about to release a 'Fun Pack' full of Group B goodness
Machines that generally go sideways are the recipe for the next game update for PC2
Project Cars 2 has been out for some months now, leaving room for thousands of gamers to discover every nook and cranny of its possibilities and seeing where the game could improve. Most reviews have been highly positive and the DriveTribe Office loves nothing more than setting a quirky, demanding time trial for the week. And now, the developers are about to release a 'Fun Pack' that will have less of an emphasis on downforce and lap times and will lean more towards drifting angles and all-wheel drive, gravel-smiting grunt.
Eight new vehicles will be on offer as well as two new track layouts, making for the perfect package to get stuck into in the run-up to Christmas.
From the world of rallycross comes two current contenders in the shape of Matthias Ekstrom's Audi S1 EKS RX Quattro and Petter Solberg's Citroen DS3 RX Supercar. Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. also furthers his ties with the game, with the RTR Spec-5D and 1966 RTR Mustangs being thrown into the mix. Gittin Jr.'s 600hp Ford Bronco also makes an appearance, but even that is dwarfed by the addition of three bona fide Group B rally legends.
The unicorn-esque Ford RS200 Evolution, Renault R5 Maxi Turbo and Audi Sport Quattro S1 should provide some epic sideways racing for hour after hour, serving up a stark contrast from the equally legendary Group C endurance racers found prominently in the game.
With the two additional tracks being the Circuit De Barcelona-Catalunya Rallycross and Brand Hatch Historic Rallycross, the game developers have picked layouts that should be virtually tailor-made for the new cars at hand.
