Project CARS ready for Steam OS, headliner for cross-platform 4K performance

Project CARS, the crowd-powered AAA racing title, is being shown off on triple-screen goodness at CES this week, where attendees can see it in action on a three-screen 4K display setup. The game is slated for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and as was announced back in early November, to Valve's Steam OS.

Project CARS on Steam OS is the by-product of an extended partnership betwixt Slightly Mad Studios and Steam, and in addition to the aforementioned consoles, it'll also be available on Wii U and Windows. The title is being demo'd at CES this week across a huge 11520 x 2160 pixels, a setup powered by four NVIDIA GTX Titan cards.

The game is also being shown off by Panasonic on its massive 85-inch UHD display, which joins the 4K Curved OLED TV offerings we went eyes-on with earlier this week. Excited? Project CARS, a performance beast, will be available some time this upcoming Fall, though when, exactly, hasn't been detailed.

Slightly Mad Studios' head Ian Bell said late last year on the game: "Project CARS has always led the pack in terms of insane detail. Whether that’s graphically in the craftsmanship of our cars and tracks, technically in the way we’ve approached weather and time of day, or emotionally in how each car feels and responds to your touch. These powerful new platforms allow us therefore to not compromise on the quality of our vision and ultimately that means players are going to experience something truly breathtaking when they get behind the wheel."
