BANDAI NAMCO GAMES ENTERS WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT WITH SLIGHTLY MAD STUDIOS ON PROJECT CARS

PARIS, FRANCE – July 2 nd 2014 – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe S.A.S. today proudly announced a worldwide distribution agreement with Slightly Mad Studios on Project CARS , coming on Xbox One, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Wii U™ and PC starting November 2014.

Project CARS  is the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet.

Crowd-funded by a passionate community that has been involved in the development process throughout to create their ultimate racing experience, Project CARS allows you to create a driver, pick from a huge variety of motorsports, and shift into high gear to chase a number of Historic Goals and ultimate recognition in the Hall Of Fame. Then test your skills online either in competitive fully-loaded race weekends, leaderboard-based time challenges, or continually-updated community events – sometimes for real-world prizes.

Featuring the largest track roster of any recent racing game with a ground-breaking dynamic time of day & weather system, world-class graphics and handling, deep tuning & pit stop functionality, and support for Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus,  Project CARS  leaves the competition behind in the dust.
