Slightly Mad Studios and the Electronic Sports League have partnered together to bring Project CARS eSports to Asia! Following the huge success and growth of the game’s competitive scene since its European ESL events launched earlier this year, we’re thrilled to be opening up the action to even more racers around the world.
Since the Summer, Project CARS has established itself as the most successful racing game to date on the ESL platform, with player participation to rival that of FIFA, Call of Duty and Starcraft 2. Every Sunday hundreds of players compete online for a €150 prize pool in the Project CARS ESL Go4 Cups, with another €450 up for grabs in every Monthly Final for the top eight players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
With great prizes, a high standard of racing and ESL Live Events at conventions like Gamescom, EGX and Paris Games Week, the Project CARS eSports scene has continued to grow in Europe and attract some of the continent’s top teams and talent, as well as sponsors, media coverage and fans along the way.
ESL is now expanding the weekly Project CARS Cups to Asia, giving even more players the chance to compete for cash prizes every Sunday in competitive online sim-racing across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
“Players and teams have embraced Project CARS eSports since we first launched our Weekly Cups with ESL just a few months ago. It’s been awesome to watch the action unfold, with such an incredibly high standard of driving skill from all involved. We’ve also been working closely with the community to ensure that the competition remains fair and open for everyone that wants to compete. And now we take the next step and see if Asia’s drivers can match the pace of the Europeans!” - Andy Tudor, Creative Director, Slightly Mad Studios
The first ESL Project CARS Asia Cup starts on December 6 2015 at 15:00 SGT with further Weekly Cups taking place every Sunday thereafter, plus the top players invited to race in Monthly Finals for even bigger prizes, just like in the European events.
