Assetto Corsa Competizione Coming To Steam This Summer


Developer Kunos Simulazioni and publisher 505 Games have announced Assetto Corsa Competizione, a new racer based on the Blancpain GT series, is in development and the beta version will be out this summer on Steam. It’s too early for a trailer, but here’s 505’s rundown of the features….

  • MULTIPLAYER AND SINGLE PLAYER CAPABILITIES: Offering a highly intelligent ranking system, Assetto Corsa Competizione will evaluate individual performance and driving behavior to reward the most skilled drivers and promote fair play in online competitions. Efficient matchmaking functions will ensure players can compete with opponents of similar skill level and easily find and join races online. Leaderboards will allow players to compare single lap performance with virtual drivers from around the world with the same car, circuit and weather conditions. Career, Championship and Free Play modes will also be available, offering a customized racing experience for all skill levels.
  • REALISTIC WEATHER CONDITIONS: Competitions of different durations, from Sprint 60 mins races to the famous Spa 24H Endurance race, Assetto Corsa Competizione will give players the opportunity to compete in different moments of the entire 24-hour arc under a dynamic weather system, thanks to a highly realistic graphical reproduction of weather conditions and visibility.
  • ACCURATE CIRCUITS: With laser scan technology, every official circuit is recreated with the highest level of precision: all curbs and details perfectly fit their real counterparts to grant a gaming experience as faithful to reality as possible.
  • ADVANCED GRAPHICS AND AUDIO EFFECTS: Unreal Engine 4 guarantees photorealistic rendering and with multi-channel audio sampling of real GT cars, Assetto Corsa Competizione conveys captivating and immersive acoustic surrounding and realistic environmental effects.

“This announcement represents ‘a dream come true’ for us,” says Marco Massarutto, co-founder and Product Manager at Kunos Simulazioni. “The Blancpain GT Series license is just the top of the iceberg…we are producing a completely new simulation aimed to redefine the racing game genre, improving the features that made Assetto Corsa so popular, and introducing those demanded by players for a high-level racing simulation game.”

Watch for Assetto Corsa Competizione when it goes live on Steam Early Access in the summer of 2018.
