Positioned at the very front of the Project CARS starting grid, Thrustmaster – a worldwide leader in the field of racing simulation controllers – is poised to set new records.
Realism, over and above all:
Thrustmaster is thrilled by the upcoming release of Project CARS, developed by Slightly Mad Studios and distributed by Bandai Namco Games on PS4™, Xbox One® and PC. Thrustmaster and Slightly Mad Studios have already met on the same race tracks, and their approaches have often converged around their commitment to provide the most realistic and immersive innovations. James Boulton, technology programmer at Slightly Mad Studios, confirms their allegiance: "Thrustmaster have been an absolute pleasure to work with, providing all the hardware and technical support we could need to deliver a cutting edge driving experience in Project CARS using Thrustmaster steering wheels and peripherals."
For the racing simulation community:
The release of a new racing simulation game always delivers a surge of adrenaline for Thrustmaster's teams: the community is increasingly active, and the demands faced by new automotive racing releases are exacting; racing controllers must be on par with the required levels of performance. Tweaks and adjustments are rising towards the red line.
To meet virtual drivers' expectations, Thrustmaster is powering ahead like a high-performance car with the release of multiple additional devices in the same period (TM Leather 28 GT Wheel Add-On, T3PA-PRO), this extending an already substantial product roster. However, power is only useful when combined with exemplary roadholding. In this case, the combination is delivered by the excellent relations and exchanges between Slightly Mad Studios' teams, who have undertaken to integrate Thrustmaster's racing wheels, and Thrustmaster's R&D department, which always strives to deliver an optimum driving experience to the members of the racing simulation community. To better address the options offered by Project CARS, Thrustmaster relies on immense power under its hood, thanks to its multiple technologies – from the performance of the industrial-class brushless motor to the accuracy of H.E.A.R.T. (Hall Effect AccuRate Technology™)* technology, to the quality of the materials used. Pit stops will provide an opportunity to enrich the T300 and TX models with other devices from the racing controller ecosystem, such as the TH8A gearbox, the T3PA and T3PA-PRO pedal sets, the FGTE and F1 detachable wheels, and the brand new TM Leather 28 GT Wheel Add-On – fully clad in leather and metal! This will ensure that Thrustmaster teams benefit from the highest-performance specifications in Project CARS, and can make the most of all the possibilities offered by this release.
The devices comprising the Thrustmaster racing ecosystem will ensure that the racing community has the weapons to dominate leaderboards in the various trials available in Project CARS.
