There's less than a week left until the launch of Project Cars 3, Slightly Mad Studios' delicious racer, but you won't be playing before you pretty much re-download the game.

According to Twisted Voxel, the Day One update for Project Cars 3 clocks in at an astounding 35.6GB. The full game apparently weighs in at 38.4GB, which practically makes even the physical copies digital - you still have to download most of it. 

We've had a bit trouble corroborating the exact source, but this would not be out of the ordinary for the Project Cars franchise. Namely, Project Cars 2 had a hefty day one update as well, but we suppose all will be forgiven once the virtual rubber starts burning.

Project Cars 3's latest dev update was all about car upgrades, which help you fine tune your garage to perfection, effectively shaping your own gameplay. 

"Our improved optional driving assists and aids have achieved that from a player skill standpoint, and upgrades will add to that from an overall player-experience one. Upgrades add more layers to allow players to choose how they want to play, not from settings in a menu, but by letting them create vehicles that feel and handle closer to what they want from their cars. 

If you’re more confident, you might just focus on power upgrades and manage the lack of traction with your driving talent. If you’re more cautious, you might start by focusing on making the handling safer and reducing your time in the barriers."

Of course, you're more likely to be focusing on upgrading tyres before you get into Project Cars 3's fine-tuning system, which is really extensive. You can learn more about it here

Thanks, Twisted Voxel .
