    i currently play the game on an Xbox one but am thinking about moving across to the pc platform. Main reason is all the available extra cars and tracks plus the ability to map more buttons on the wheels etc.

    I believe I will have to buy the game through steam?

    I have seen companies selling steam keys for the game. Not sure how this works, if I buy the licence key how do I get the game?

    I also discovered a site that offers addons such as cars, tracks etc. Can these be used with the official steam game?

    Good choice! (the title)

    Yeah, AC is a "Steam"-sim, and you can buy it to youself or as a gift to someone, the later is kindda what some companies does for you: buy a key for the content and send it to you. But, don't do that, the prizing is ridicoulus!
    Buy it through Steam, end of story.

    Yes, addon cars are probably mod cars you've seen and will work if they're legit. Check in on racedepartment to get in touch with what is good and bad. Some mods are payware, most a free.

    Finally, if you're buying a pc, do yourself a favor and buy a strong setup instead of saving a few bucks. A contemporary rig with 7- or 8. gen Intel CPU and a Nvidia GTX1070 and up, you're good to go even if you deside to go VR someday (which is awesome). Less can do, but you won't be able to upgrade much and will end up buying yet another pc if you want something better later.

    I already have a good pc that I use for video editing. Intel i7, GTX 980Ti, 32gb ram and various ssd drives so that will be up to the job

    well i did and am very dissapointed. it seems to get the same cars and tracks i will have pay additional money for the dlc packs

    For intance I bought the xbox dlc seaon pass £11 which included Porsche Pack 1, 2 & 3, Jap Pack and Red Pack

    To get the same packs I would have to pay £26

    Also cars like the BMW235i is std on xbox and an extra on PC, just one of many examples

    so just to be clear.
    You download an illegal copy of AC. Then you proceed to buy something without even reading nor understanding what you are buying.. they you come here and keep using this "ripoff" word over and over even thought we already pointed out that you are out of line.

    So let's play this game.. one more time I read this word from you and you are out for good.

    Evidently you cut corners and purchased an illegal copy of AC. There is no way you can get support for the illegal game copy. However, dusk off and get the right'll enjoy PC gaming.

    I've been play AC on Xbox for the past 3 months and have a full Fanatec Clubsport rig and I have no clue about PCs. If someone could give me suggestions for a good PC setup that will run most racing games like iracing and things along the line like that, that would be great. Thanks

    Nothing over $900 but I don't want to get a PC that's totally overkill though.

    I'm in the same boat; looking to jump ship from Xbox to PC this summer... and likely Occulus Rift too.

    Yet another PC VR want to be.
    Budget for PC In the region of...
    1300 euro.... $1600....£1200

    Is it worth holding off till end of year for second gen headsets.
    Will cards drop in price once Bitcoin miners move to next gen cards?

    Any current VR users with machines around my budget that can point to one would be appreciated.
