Usually it’s only PC gamers who can go into a game’s settings and mess around with the graphics. However, Project Cars aims to buck this trend and will allow console payers to tweak the graphical settings on their version of the game in order to tweak visual effects.
Originally discovered by Digital Foundry, the console versions will feature a Visual FX setting which will have options which players can modify. There will be different settings for things like lens flare, rain drops, screen dirt, and bloom.
In an interview with GameSpot, Creative Director Andy Tudor explained why these options were included on the console versions. “Console owners should have just as much right to tailor their game to their particular preferences as PC players,” said Tudor, “whether that’s authenticity, visual options, how the camera reacts, accessibility etc.
“The racing genre is pretty mature at this point and many console racing fans are therefore eager to for this kind of additional depth, plus the racing genre is also very broad meaning this kind of personalization will allow fans of both traditional racing games on consoles and veteran PC sim racing titles to feel right at home.”
Project Cars is due to be released on the 8th of May for the Ps4, Xbox One, and PC.
