New Project Gotham Racing 4 Details and Trailer

Microsoft Game Studios and Bizarre Creations have revealed new details regarding Project Gotham Racing 4 today, which is scheduled to launch sometime this fall.

In an effort to create an “emotionally-charged racing experience”, Bizarre Creations is building a new career mode during which drivers will build a fanbase as they progress that’ll cheer them on alongside the track and follow their every move. A dynamic weather system is also being implemented, causing real-time weather effects — maybe some light snow flurries or a rain storm — to pop up unexpectedly and realistically alter the ongoing race. The Kudos system is being revised a bit as well, and new A.I. personalities promise to spice things up. Of course it wouldn’t be a racing game sequel without new cars, and PGR4 will have plenty of those too, including the 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 Fiorano, and 1957 Maserati 250F.

Additional PGR4 updates are scheduled to be released next month, and we’ll report back as soon as anything new comes along. But for now watch this new trailer for an early peek at the game:
