The latest DLC pack for Project CARS 3 is out now, and it features a surprising new addition. The Nissan Z Proto is a near-production concept car from the Japanese manufacturer that previews the upcoming 400Z sportscar, and it is available now as part of the new Power Pack DLC pack.
Released in August 2020, this marks the third additional pack for Project Cars 3, after the Legends and Style sets. It’s available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC for $9.99/£7.99/€9.99, or as part of the Season Pass.
Alongside the shiny new Nissan coupe, the set also includes an iconic drift machine in the form of a Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Apex (AE86) from 1985. That’s the small rear-wheel-drive hatchback with pop-up headlights for the ultimate in JDM feels.
Two further Nissans also join the roster. Sitting nicely alongside the Z Proto is the current incarnation of the ‘Z’, the 370Z 2020. There’s also the 2002 Silvia Spec-R GT Aero (S15). All four of the new cars can have a racing-car conversion purchased, adding them to race-car classes through the addition of massive wings and splitters amongst other modifications.
The Power Pack adds new events to the game fitted around the latest vehicles. You can find it in the Career menu under the DLC tab. It includes 16 events and 48 objectives to reach for. This is alongside six new Trophies/Achievements plus cosmetic items in the form of 20 decals, 12 liveries, 10 tyres, 10 license plates, five patterns, five rims, five race numbers and one new character with 10 different outfits and helmets.
The timing of the new paid DLC coincides with the release of a free new circuit for all players. The fictional Lake Valley Speedway is set inside an arena with a packed crowd. There’s a basic oval layout, plus a ‘Figure 8’ layout and two much more in-depth variants – Outer Short and Outer Long – that also incorporate the area outside the venue. You can, like all tracks in the game, select between multiple times of day and weather conditions including night and heavy rain.
With the Z Proto (400Z) not in Nissan’s European plans, this DLC may be the closest fans this side of the Atlantic get to see the new car. We’d like to hear your thoughts about Project CARS 3, the new track and the new cars via our social media. Come say hello!
