Slightly Mad Studios have released Project CARS patch 3.0 for PC and PlayStation 4 users. It should arrive soon for Xbox One, we will update this post when it becomes available.

UPDATE: (8-28) - The Xbox One patch is rolling out now.

Below are some of the new and enhanced features of the patch. For a complete list of updates, read the final release notes at the Project CARS Forum (PC, PlayStation 4).
  • New – Friends Leaderboards – players can now toggle between viewing ‘ALL’ and ‘FRIENDS ONLY’ on the leaderboards screen.
  • New – Multiplayer Spectate Mode – players can now choose to ‘Retire to Pit Box’ during a race, and then spectate the ongoing race.
  • Enhanced MP vehicle grouping – online races now use real-world vehicle classes. This results in far better vehicle performance matching for online races.
  • Enhanced Setup and Pit Strategy system – players are now provided with information regarding current and upcoming weather, remaining session duration, current track temperatures, and more.
  • Enhanced HUD and Telemetry tyre info system – players can now see in real time which tyre compounds they are currently using, what each tyre’s pressure is, and how much each tyre is worn.
  • Enhanced Cut Track detection system – the system used to detect cut tracks is now far more accurate and 'fair'.
  • DLC Career Contract support – the game now supports the addition of career contracts for new DLC vehicles so that players can use applicable cars in their core career series.
  • Enhanced Replay system – players can now access Photo Mode from within a replay, and can switch between cars during a replay.
  • New – Force Feedback – implemented the ability via menu sliders for the user to manually tweak the menu spring strength, stationary / low speed spring strength, and overall steering gain.
  • New – the Force Feedback Calibration screen now features a multiple force feedback profile selection system whereby the user can select a base FFB style that suits personal preference, and then tweak it further as desired.
  • Enhanced Weather system – all vehicles are updated with new window rain effects, featuring dynamic rivulets, much more realistic looking water drops, and wiper blade trail effects.
They also wanted to point out all of the Time Trial leaderboards have been reset.

Quote:
Please be aware that, as a result of the enhanced cut-track detection system included in Patch 3.0, all Time Trial leaderboards will be reset over the course of the next 12 hours. This is to clear out leaderboard times that were set under the old cut-track detection system where players could get away with driving off-track and gain time by doing so. The new system is far fairer and much more accurate. By resetting the leaderboards we remove all these 'contaminated' records and ensure that everyone has a fair shot at setting true and accurate Time Trial leaderboard entries.

The hosts of the Post-Game Podcast recently had hands-on time with the new Pro-Am modes (LIVE Run, Summer Circuit) in NBA Live 16 and they talk about it in their latest podcast. Give it a listen here and find out what Marc and Corey have to say about it.

Quote:
First Half: Marc & Corey take a good chunk of time to discuss the return of OTP and EA's announcement of 'Pro-Am'. Both gentlemen have attended community events and are full of impressions, including talk on both LIVE Run, and Summer Circuit.

The guys detail the mode's specific features, including discussion on topics such as: how you progress, attributes, the differences between RP & SP, the mode's customization, teammate grades, GameFaceHD, 'Key Skills', Summer Circuit venues, answer Twitter questions & much, much more.

Our hosts then discuss their overall thoughts on the mode, how it compares to the competition, the similar mode name to 2K and the upcoming demo.

Halftime: The PES 2016 demo dropped, and Corey is both excited and disappointed in aspects of the demo compared to last year's title. Both hosts discuss their early impressions of PES 2016 and wonder if it's enough to win the race to soccer supremacy this fall.

The guys also dive into Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings for the Xbox One and Corey gushes about the accessibility and depth the game brings to Xbox fans who have been longing for a baseball title.

Second Half: In the penultimate episode of 'The Backlog', the guys are coming close to the end in Alien: Isolation, and the wear is starting to show. Is the game too long? What's happened to the game's narritive? Has frustration finally set in on Corey? Tune-in to find out!

Post-Game: Next week, we'll be discussing Madden NFL 16 retail impressions, taking a look back at the PSN Play games that released in July & finalize our trip through Alien: Isolation in the finale of 'The Backlog'!

EA Sports has confirmed on their official Facebook page that NBA Live 16 will not feature NBA player or roster editing. That means, no accessory changes, no player rating adjustments, no changing jersey numbers, etc...

Maybe it gets patched in later? Maybe not, but this is not a good sign.
