Just when we thought there was absolutely nothing left to say about Slightly Mad Studios and their abomination of a release in Project CARS, the gang continues their streak of finding new ways to provide us with countless laughs. Only a few short days ago, the team at SMS released a Renault-themed DLC package including several cars from the iconic French brand as part of their comprehensive post release DLC plan. However, in the span of an afternoon, one owner of Project CARS has discovered the DLC package includes a car that is fundamentally broken – the Formula Renault 3.5
To summarize what’s been written in the above forum post:
- In dry conditions, rain tires are two seconds faster than proper racing slicks, and the rain tires don’t degrade at all.
- Slightly Mad Studios have willingly left out the inclusion of DRS zones, giving you free control of the rear wing’s angle of attack whenever you see fit.
- Attempting to corner while the DRS system is activated, the car violently rolls over and explodes.
There were virtually no Quality Assurance checks performed on the contents of the newest premium DLC pack, and Slightly Mad Studios are straight up selling a defective product. While the cost of the Renault pack is a bargain at three euros, you’re getting exactly what you pay for. To add to the already dire situation, WMD investor Tiago Fortuna admits this is not a problem with just the Formula Renault 3.5, but a bug rooted deeply within the game.
Will this ride ever end? Probably not.
