Slightly Mad Studios has officially unveiled Project Cars 2, and while the sequel aims to replicate the first game's simulation-based racing, multitude of different racing series, and plethora of options, it's also trying to push itself even further.

While all the game's features have not yet been announced, the one big game-changer so far is the dynamic weather system that combines a 24-hour day/night cycle with different weather conditions across the seasons. Conditions change as you race, demanding you adapt to previously dry curves that are now wet, as well as the fact that they may be wet in different places and affected by other cars and changing levels of track debris. Adding this up across different track surfaces (including snow), and you will constantly adapt as new challenges arise on the track from turn to turn.

Project Cars 2 will launch with over 170 licensed cars, which is a big step up from the 60 that the first game debuted with, and PC 2 includes new and old vehicle types and series, including Rallycross and IndyCar.

The game also claims to have "the largest track roster of any console racing game ever" (no specifics given), and has VR headset support (Vive and Oculus for now), and triple-monitor 12K support on PC.

Project Cars 2 comes out in late 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
