Project CARS gameplay trailer shows vehicular beauty

Slightly Mad Studios has released a new trailer for the upcoming crowdfunded racing game, Project CARS. The trailer is about what you'd expect, showing off some gorgeous-looking vehicles across beautifully-crafted environments. But the developer then pulls the curtain back on the trailer's big twist: all of the footage is taken directly in-game.

That's right. All of the footage of the vast real-world landscapes, the vehicle interiors, the sleek designs, the sunsets, the shadows, and the crowds are all taken from actual gameplay footage. It certainly appears that Slightly Mad has used the $660,000 it raised very wisely.

You can check out the full gameplay trailer below. Project CARS is aiming for a November 2014 release on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, and SteamOS and is also looking to be one of the first games to support Sony's Project Morpheus.
