Project CARS arrives on Steam for backers, slick new trailer released

Project CARS

By on July 9, 2013 at 12:52 pm

Supporters of Project CARS should fire up their Steam clients, because the developers have announced that future builds of the game will be available in a convenient form through Valve’s distribution network.

“Aside from making the build downloading process more convenient, Steam will also be used to add several community-related features to Project CARS in the future,” reads the announcement.

If you’re a Project CARS supporter, you can get information on how to access the Steam build through this link (registered users only). A search for the game on Steam brings up no results, so presumably this is restricted to supporters only.

In the meantime, why not ogle at the trailer below cut together from pre-alpha footage by a Project CARS community member?

Yes! Steam’s network is reliable, the launcher hasn’t always been so.

Also, I like having content managed now through various umbrellas (like Steam, Origin, Uplay and so on) rather than launching individual games.

Yes, that’s right, I’m a DRM-enabler.

 

I like steam too, never really had an issue with Origin or Uplay.

What i HATE is buying and launching a game through Steam, only to have it then launch and update Uplay (I’m fkn looking at YOU AC).

Uplay is nothing but advertising for products you already own, absolutely infuriating when you’re on a 1500/256 connection.

The appropriate balance is choice. People like me can get DRM-free copies of stuff, people like you can choose to use DRM-infested Steam/Uplay/Origin/whatever.

That’s how the Humble Bundle people do it, and I like it. The funny thing is, I’m more likely to register their stuff on my Steam account for convenience, because I know I can always get a DRM-free copy if I want to.

 

Oh god, the last thing I expected to read in here is more futile debate on store platform or DRM :( ..I give up

You didn’t expect to read about that in relation to an article specifically about something being released on a store/DRM platform?

 

This is nice, every time I’ve felt like firing up Project CARS the launcher wants to download some huge update…

If the Steam version delivers updates directly instead of running the launcher which then downloads, then launching the game from the launcher… that’d be great.

Then Steam can just do its thing whenever and the game is always ready when I want to play.

Noice.

 

Why can’t you purchase it on steam ? :(

 

awesome, now patches don’t get counted to the monthly quota

 

Soooo pissed I missed out on buying into the beta… I wish they would open it up again.
