May 10, 2007 - With all the hooplah over the May release of Forza 2, Project Gotham Racing 4 has gone under the radar. That changes today. Microsoft revealed some new info about Bizarre Creations' fall racer.
Bizzare's goal for PGR 4 is to create an "emotionally-charged racing experience." One way that will be accomplished is through the new career mode. As your driver progresses, winning races and racking up kudos, he gains new fans. They cheer just for him as he passes other drivers. And thanks to the revised kudos system, your newly-confident driver will pump his fist as he passes an opponent. Just don't get too full of yourself, because the AI promises to be as big as showoff as your virtual driver.
Also added is a new dynamic weather system. You won't turn on and off rain or worry about a snow flurry in one specific track. The weather changes and you never know what to expect when you start your engine. The weather will force you to adjust your driving techniques, particularly when powering around corners in any of the 10 different locations in PGR 4.
Of course, you're going to need some fancy cars to race in these fancy new conditions. Here's just a taste of some of the cars in PGR 4's garage:
- 2004 TVR Sagaris
- 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
- 2005 Vanwall GPR V12
- 1993 Toyota Supra Turbo
- 2005 Gumpert Apollo
- 1997 Panoz GTR-1 Coupe
- 2006 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano1957 Maserati 250F
