Assetto Corsa Competizione Out Now, Promises Ultra-Realistic Racing

Racing sim fans can begin playing Assetto Corsa Competizione effective immediately on their PCs, diving directly into the world of the FIA GT3 homologated championship.

This newest installment in the Assetto Corsa franchise features official drivers, teams, cars and circuits, and was developed using Unreal Engine 4 for improved visuals. The launch trailer below serves as evidence of just how realistic the game looks.

According to the press release, real-life Blancpain GT Series drivers, who also took part in the development process of the game, use Assetto Corsa Competizione to train before the actual races.

“Never take anything for granted, even if you have the Assetto Corsa experience behind you! Assetto Corsa Competizione has been completely rebuilt from scratch, not only to best harness and adapt to the Unreal Engine 4 capabilities, but also to define a new standard in terms of realism and car handling,” said Kunos Simulazioni co-founder Marco Massarutto.

Gamers can choose between Multiplayer and Single Player modes, while Career, Championship and Free Play modes offer a complete experience suitable for every skill level. The brand new Career mode was designed in collaboration with Lamborghini Squadra Corse and 2017 Blancpain GT Series champion Mirko Bortolotti, who will introduce players to driving tests and giving them tips on how to improve their skill.

You can also create your own racing team, although if you so wish, you might step into the (virtual) shoes of one of the official drivers.

Another impressive feature is the dynamic weather, which influences visibility on the track as well as the handling of the cars. You can experience changing weather regardless of competition or race length, from Sprint 60′ races to the famous Spa 24H Endurance race.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is available on Steam beginning today for $44.99, with a limited-time discount of 10%.
