NEXT GENERATION RACING SIMULATOR
ASSETTO CORSA is one of the most popular racing games, and includes the most iconic and purposed cars and tracks, featuring an advanced DirectX 11 graphics engine that recreates an immersive environment, dynamic lighting and realistic materials and surfaces. Designed to provide a highly realistic driving experience, our advanced physics engine includes features and aspects of real cars never before seen in any other racing simulator, such as tyre flat spots, heat cycles including graining and blistering, a highly advanced aerodynamic simulation with active movable aerodynamics parts controlled in real time by telemetry input channels, hybrid systems and energy recovery simulation. An extremely detailed simulation with single player and multiplayer options, ASSETTO CORSA lines up exclusive licensed cars reproduced with the highest accuracy thanks to the official cooperation of car manufacturers.
ASSETTO CORSA is developed at the KUNOS Simulazioni R&D office located inside the international racing circuit of Vallelunga, allowing the development team to work on the game with the cooperation of real-world racing drivers and teams.
GAMEPLAY & FEATURES
ASSETTO CORSA includes a career mode, a list of special and unique events and challenges, as well as fully customizable single player and multiplayer modes, featuring quick races and race weekends including a free practice session, qualifying session and race. Discover the drag race mode, drift challenges and much more! Four driving-assist profiles (gamer, racer, pro and a fully-customizable mode) allow players of all nature to enjoy the simulation at their desired level. The game offers advanced setup options and telemetry for data analysis; dynamic simulation of the tyre rubber deposited on the track depending on the number of laps; an adjustable time of the day mode featuring sun position calculated in real time, depending on the geographical coordinates of the track and sun curve according to the time and date to get the same light conditions as on the actual tracks.
ADVANCED PHYSICS ENGINE
Every single feature has been programmed into our industry-leading physics engine to simulate and replicate each car’s personal character and bring the most unique driving experience ever created on PC and consoles. Experience the monstrous turbo lag and incredibly high power output of the Lotus 98T from the turbo era in the ‘80s, the evolution of drivetrains through the pioneer Audi Sport quattro four-wheel drive system and the mighty complex all-wheel drive of the Lamborghini Aventador SV. Feel the effects of the four independently moving aero flaps on the Pagani Huayra and the brutal power of the hybrid systems in the McLaren P1. Listen to the last V8 engine from Scuderia Ferrari’s 2013 F138, equipped with KERS and DRS systems, and then hop into the 2015 SF15-T and be amazed by the ever-increasing complexity of state-of-the-art power units featuring advanced turbo and ERS systems.
Sound environment, an element absolutely crucial to guaranteeing proper immersion and making you feel inside the car. Thanks to our relationship with racing teams, who usually allow our development team to perform recording sessions directly on the circuit where our Italian studio is located, we aim to keep improving our recording techniques and the overall product to create an immersive atmosphere that brings you right inside the car.
Assetto Corsa features reverb effects along the track, and car sounds are differentiated with internal and external cameras. This means that cockpit cameras use internal sounds, while you can hear the powerful intake sound from the bonnet camera or the distinctive exhaust sound from the chase camera. Sounds also provide important information to the driver: you can hear the bottom of the car scraping against the asphalt and other surfaces or the tyres squealing while losing grip. This vastly enhances immersion and realism, while also gives third-party modders a chance to further improve their amazing projects.
APP OVERLAY SYSTEM
Assetto Corsa introduces an innovative and fully-customizable app-based overlay system that provides full customization of the information the driver wants to see on the screen. Moving the mouse pointer on the right side of the screen, the driver can select his favourite apps from the applications bar, placing them everywhere in the visible area. With the app system being based on Phyton, gamers with programming skills can create their own apps and run them in the game: this is what makes Assetto Corsa “YOUR Racing Simulator”. Set it up to your liking and enjoy your tailor-made experience!
