    Oh looky...



    Introducing.. Assetto Corsa Competizione, the new Official game of the Blancpain GT Series, an official grand touring racing series organized by Swiss manufacturer Blancpain and SRO Motorsports Group.


    Featuring an extraordinary level of simulation quality that will allow players to experience the real atmosphere of the FIA GT3 championship, players will be able to compete against official drivers, teams, cars and circuits with the highest level of accuracy and attention to detail.

    Taking full advantage of Unreal Engine 4, Assetto Corsa Competizione will ensure the highest quality rendering with photorealistic weather conditions and graphics to reach a new standard in driving realism and immersion racing.

    Players will experience highspeed torque as they get behind the wheel of luxurious speedsters including Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and many other prestigious GT cars reproduced with an outstanding level of detail.

    Motion capture technology is used to create the animations of mechanics and drivers in an even more realistic fashion and guarantee a high level of player engagement during races, pit stops and driver changes.

    In the final version of the game, players can expect advanced multiplayer functionality with Assetto Corsa Competizione, including a ranking system which will evaluate individual performance and driving behavior to reward the most virtuous drivers and promote fair play in online competitions.


    Assetto Corsa Competizione will be speeding into Steam Early Access this summer.


    Stay tuned for more information.

    Blancpain GT Series announces move into sim racing with Assetto Corsa Competizione




    Stephane Ratel, Founder and CEO of SRO Motorsports Group:We are thrilled to announce the release of the first official game for the Blancpain GT Series. Sim racing has become an important market in recent years and one that we are very keen to be involved with. Assetto Corsa Competizione will allow Blancpain GT Series fans the chance to compete as their heroes at their favourite track with extremely high standards of simulation. What’s more, it will bring the series into contact with a brand-new set of followers from the world of gaming, which has already demonstrated close synergy with motorsport. This is a very exciting project and I can’t wait to test drive the finished product.

    Marco Massarutto, Co-founder and Brand & Product Manager of Kunos Simulazioni
    :
    This announcement represents a dream come true for us. The Blancpain GT Series license is just the tip of the iceberg. By combining the potential of Unreal Engine 4 and the feedback received from our community, 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 - with no compromise, and remaining loyal to our philosophy."

    So in other words, its Assetto Corsa 2. Ealry access this summer, thats only a few months away.

    Reminds me of the Gran Turismo marketing model of releasing a "prototype" game (in this case focused on GT cars and a handful of tracks) and then releasing the same engine with more cars/tracks/features as another game.

    Looks good, just hope they have decent tyre models for wet.

    We asked the community to submit a few questions to the developers of the upcoming Assetto Corsa Competizione racing simulation,
    and frankly the response we received was incredible.
    Some 245 posts later and we've picked out a few key questions to throw at the guys, with some interesting responses...

    Exciting news! Assetto Corsa Competizione, the Officially licensed Blancpain GT Series game, will be showcased for the very FIRST TIME in public during E3 2018 in Los Angeles at Thrustmaster’s booth.
    All attendees with have the opportunity to experience Assetto Corsa Competizione in a pre-Alpha stage, using the most recent Thrustmaster products, with Ferrari and Sparco official licenses in a hotlap-based endurance race using professional simulations from California-based company VRX.
    Virtual racers, thanks to Thrustmaster, will dive into Assetto Corsa Competizione feeling every single curb, since TS-XW double-belt brushless motor servo-base will be used.
    They will be able to test this equipment together with Ferrari F488 Challenge and Sparco P310 wheel add-ons, perfectly replicating their real counterparts, being able to win prizes. Sparco, worldwide leader for motorsport equipment, will deploy its Sparco Evolve cockpits with QRT-Vs, brand new bucket seats that thanks to a patented production technology are 30% lighter than the last generation of products. Hypergrip, highly breathable and touch-sensitive sim racing gloves, will also be available for testing.

    By the sounds of it, I'd say all our active AEF|RT members that are participating in our c/ship will be purchasing it.

    Yes, it would be good to incorporate the AC Competizione GT3's into our current and/or future AEF AC Championship/s, but there's a lot of testing to be done with the first alpha/beta release, and of course including it in any way can only be done with unanimous AEF|RT members approval.


    Expect plenty more of other things to talk about as the first initial version comes closer to release.

    EXAMPLE: The below quote taken from the "Steam Store" page...
    System Requirements


    • Minimum:
      • OS: Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10
      • Additional Notes: Specifications TBD.

    Man, that looks so good. I love the body roll and forward/rear roll. That would be amazing if someone had a force feed back setup where the seat moved instead of the screen.

    Night racing here we come
