The Nurburgring-Nordschleife. The greatest track of all time, challenging drivers for over 60 years and now challenging you in Assetto Corsa.

The Nurburing-Nordschleife will be an official addition to Assetto Corsa, which is being heralded as one of the most appreciated racing simulations of 2013. We will be bringing you the most faithful virtual representation of the track ever to be released, based on our laser scanning technology.

This license underpins the ambition of the Assetto Corsa team and we will be shortly beholding a survey to gather your thoughts with a view to releasing the track in  2014.

We want to go further however! We are developing a ‘Dream Pack DLC’ featuring not only the Nordschleife, but 10 cars, chosen by you, the community, to be included in the pack. So take your pick, Alfa Romeo? Nissan? McLaren and much more.

Soon after the release of Assetto Corsa v.1.0 final, we will be opening our 1 month pre-order phase, providing you with a 50% saving on the final package – that’s right, 10 cars and the Nordschleife.

We hope that with this announcement you will have an even Happier New Year.

The Assetto Corsa development team

  • EpicPosterGuy

    Awesome ! Can not wait to drive on a laser scanned Nurburgring !

  • George Lolas

    Merry Christmas everyone :D
    We love you Kunos :)

  • Michele Desiati

    Nurburgring! Yeah!

  • God Shave The Queen

    It’s not easy, nowadays, to be proud of being italian. You make the pride come back.

  • Mattia Tacconi

    Not again with those DLC..

    • Kent Eriksson

      Slavery is a thing of the past. You don’t want them to make a living?

      • Mattia Tacconi

        Wtf are u talking about.. I belive in AC.. I bougth the game on steam.. But i dont aspect a DLC

        • Andreas Tintifax

          Right…after this mega Hype from KS…..

        • Johners

          You don’t get it do You? No one ever said that developer has to build as many tracks as You want and as many cars you want. Htey may also say “the game is done. There will be no more tracks and no more cars”. Who said that Norschleife has to be in a final product? Did they said it? No! So stop whining and if You like circuit – buy it. If you don’t like it – don’t buy it. And never ever thins that game makers/developers are fuc**ng Greenpeace. It’s their job. The time, effort ect. costs a lot. Wait… I have an idea. Maybe YOU go and scan the circuit, make one and release it for free… dumbass

          • Andreas Tintifax

            You dont get it either mhh? NOBODY said that the Nordschleife has to be in the Final version….THE GUYS ARE ONLY COMPLAINING ABOUT THE MARKETING/HYPE STRATEGY they used….
            just to announce on 24th a DLC?????
            hey man dont get personal ok?

          • Deatroy

            The Marketing strategy is right, because if you know how hard it was to get the license for this Track and the 10 cars, you would make an announcement aswell.

        • Hurdy Hurdy

          Ahh, I see,

          You want to pay for early access (at a discount) and then get everything else from Kunos for free. Gotcha!

          Nobody is forcing you to buy the DLC when it becomes available, so just continue to race with what Kunos will have provided for your discounted purchase once the game gets a v1.0 full release. We are only at v0.4.1 so there are a few more BETA builds to come, where I’m sure they’ll give you a few more cars and tracks without you having to activate your PayPal account, plus Spa and the Merc SLS are being provided as free DLC when the game releases.

    • Jackson P.

      WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?!?! Take a guess at how much money the license for the hailed Nurburgring costs? Then take in to consideration that Kunos is made up of 10 guys. Now do you see why it’s DLC? It will be the first laser scanned Nurburgring ever.

      • Mattia Tacconi

        So why dont you sell your game @ 60 € instead of 36?
        The game is out from a month and already there is a DLC..

        • Deatroy

          Its EARLY ACCESS, still a beta!
          Far away from Version 1.0.

  • Piereligio Di Sante

    It was OBVIOUS that Nurburgring had to arrive, here. I expected multiplayer.

    • Kent Eriksson

      Can’t release something that demand 100% attention and support in the only vacation they have all year.

    • Jackson P.

      they said that it WOULDN’T be multiplayer…

      • Piereligio Di Sante

        Where?

        • Jackson P.

          twitter

          • Piereligio Di Sante

            Oh, okay. (Don’t understand the thumbs down for a simple question.)

  • Stepreo

    Hopefully not a silly question but does this include the Nürburgring GP circuit too?

  • look apex

    Ok but where is the gift?!?
    There are no update?!?

  • Eduardo

    Great one Kunos.. Thx all AC team. and happy holidays.

  • GacelaThompson

    So we pay steam early access to get a product without any garantee of success and you return us our confidence in you with a pay content? I don’t like this. I’m very dissapointed.

    • Mattia Tacconi

      Totally agree

      • Andreas Tintifax

        Yes thats just pathetic…..

      • Andreas Tintifax

        Thats just pathetic…..

    • Kent Eriksson

      They have to survive. It ain’t cheap to laser scan the biggest track in the world.

    • God Shave The Queen

      Dude, do you even realize what’s like to laserscan the Ring? It’s a HUGE work, these guys are working, they’re not Santa Claus.
      So, shut up and take my money!

    • Deatroy

      How they should pay the license else without additional money through DLC.
      There is no big publisher behind this.

    • Marcos Entrialgo Castro

      Maybe i’m mistaken but I don’t recall to read or hear that early buyers would get DLCs for free. It was told that Spa Francorchamps would be free to all the people pre-ordering, but I think it was announced to be free for everyone.
      Anyway, you people are far too optimistic thinking that you will be getting 10 cars and a track that will take almost an entire year to be develope for free.
      Maybe you people are so used to have a crappy non lassers scaned-poor detailed Nordschs that you don’t really took a minute to think how much expensive is to have it laserscaned.

    • jax

      then you give us the money to make the track you sleazy faggot!!!!! take a look at the EuroTruckSim developers. From the money they earned from selling some halloween DLC, the re-invested them in creating better audio for the game!! you are RETARDED!!!

  • Hack Mac

    Yes yes yes!
    Fast forward to September 2014 please.

  • Jason Madigan

    Awesome news, really looking forward to driving as many different cars around this monstrous track as I can :D

  • Andreas Tintifax

    Thats the Christmas important Announcment?To pay again for a DLC?
    Im dissapointet……all this Hype…..the game is in Pre Alpha and you talking about DLCs to buy?…..sorry but not the best marketing…..

    • Calvin Hermse

      Due to it’s longness, the Nord must be a hell of a job to scan, so I can understand that the usual 30 bucks (Or less, whatevs) is simply not enough, and we’re getting the top 10 cars we want!
      If the price is reasonable, I’ll buy it.

      • Simone Ygy Mercatelli

        The problem is not if we’ll buy it or not, seriously we are gamers we buy overpriced shit every time, the problem is the fact that the game itself is still unfinished and they talk about selling DLC in 9 months from now,DLC which contain things that we (the early access player) think must be included in the full game not in a DLC, so we had pay for what?

        • Michal

          You CHOSE to buy it now. You could have waited until it’s released. Why didn’t you?

          • Simone Ygy Mercatelli

            Why? Respect and support that’s why, I think maybe to receive the same treatment by kunos.
            I don’t talk to have the things gratis, indeed I’ll be happy to pay for some gorgeous car or track or who think what.
            I talk about give us more stuff from the game we already payed, I talk about things that most of us (read all the comment) think must be included in what we have already pay.
            Contain your orgasm, and see the things from an objective POV.

          • Michal

            Objective? Really? Seems like Kunos made a mistake by putting AC on Steam ealry access. It just created a whole lot of people who feel entitled for paying before the game was finished. The reality is you are paying to be a beta tester. Personally I have VERY little money. In fact I have a LOT of debt. And I have very little opportunity to play AC. But I am an adult, and I understand that nothing in life is for free. AC is already delivering FAR above and beyond what you would expect for the state of development and the price they are asking. You may disagree, but I would challenge you to give a better example for value for money.

          • franci

            rFactor 2

          • Michal

            Good stuff. Then you can stop paying now. No money lost!

          • rbrfanatic .

            rFactor 2 is just an half assed product if you compare it to AC !

          • Deatroy

            Early Access means alpha and beta testing, everyone knows he is getting an unfinished product.

        • rafarlp

          Wait a second there. When you bought this game you knew exactly which tracks and cars they were offering. It’s right here on this website. You paid for that, no more no less.

          Now you are complaining because you think you deserve more free stuff? You want them to work more, bring more tracks and more cars to the game and pay nothing for it?

          You can’t be serious.

        • rbrfanatic .

          I wouldn’t call AC Early Access overpriced !
          I’d rather call it a steal !
          To me it’s easily worth ten times as much !

      • rbrfanatic .

        I gladly pay 150 Euros for the September 2014 DLC !

        Why ?

        Simply because it’s worth it !

        It’s not the usual Codemaster shit that get old after a couple of weeks at the most !

        If you spread out what it cost over the years you will use it, the price is virtually nothing !

        Same with early access !

        I have played AC for well over 100 hours and if I compare it to going to the cinema I basically got it for free !

    • Arkadiusz Wawrzyniak

      Pre alpha?! Really? It is late beta….

    • Stuart Scooby Ellis

      the game is beta not pre alpha, it is being released in april full version, stop gtettin pants in a twist and be happy there doing this at all. god ppl expect everything for nothing these days!

      • Andreas Tintifax

        I think you need to READ it again…im just dissapointet from the HYPE that they MAKED!!!!!They put on FB Pictures with Countdown days and that just for a DLC to announce?
        and why is than standing there to Release the Track in September 2014?

        • Marcos Entrialgo Castro

          Lots of games have countdowns prior to their announcements and they are not for free.

          • Andreas Tintifax

            i think you really cant read mhh? GUYS ARE COMPLAINING NOT ABOUT THE PRICE OF THE DLCS OR ABOVE THE DLC….. ITS THE FACT THAT THE greatet A MEGA HYPE 5 DAYS LONG!!!and than just for a DLC in SEPTEMBER 2014….thats all?
            omfg…..

          • Jason Garrett

            5 days is mega-hype? Hahaha! Are you kidding? A few comments on Facebook isn’t mega-hype. They never promised more features or content on Christmas Eve. Quit being such a whiner.

        • Francesco Lanciano

          And who the fucking cares about your disappointement? I m instead very happy about this new.
          So, now?

          • Andreas Tintifax

            Nobody….just want to make my point like the others…

            do i care about your fucking mind?no? so please dont waste my time….
            Peace ;)
            Yeah what now??
            I go have a sweet Christmas evening with my Family
            ;)
            Who Cares? Nobody
            As Nobody cares about you ;)

          • Francesco Lanciano

            Exaclty. Your mind made the hype, they just stated that they will announce something today and they only announced that the community request will be satisfied. STOP.
            Have a nice Xmas.

        • Jackson P.

          They didn’t create the hype…. EVERYONE ELSE DID

    • Andreas Tintifax

      Anyway..i think im not wrong when i say 80% of the “Community” are dissapointed…..thanks to the mega Hype they maked…just read the Comments on Fb….

      • Deatroy

        because they are dumb.
        If they actually understand what Kunos did, then you can love them.
        It was veryyyyyyy hard to get this track, 90% want it.

        Unbelievable how imature this community is then.

        • Andreas Tintifax

          ahhh you dont get it…maybe my english is to bad….i tried to make the point 5 times now….but you WONT get it…. ITS ABOUT THE HYPE!!!THE MARKETING!!!!!!

          • Deatroy

            You dont get it!
            They can hype it.
            Its was and still is VERY HARD to get this license.
            There was no real owner for Nordschleife. You couldnt contact them that easy and make a deal –> license.
            It was a very hard work for them and now its fair that they hype it!

          • Andreas Tintifax

            No real owner?
            Linder Gruppe?Nürburgring GmbH?
            even i know that..and i lived 40km away from the Nordschleife….

          • Deatroy

            http://gyazo.com/92da25ffb22cba304ef0817da5f1def1.png

            There are like 20 answers to this topic, i just cutted this one out.

          • Andreas Tintifax

            The ADAC is only the sponsor/eventmanager of the Nordschleife/Nürburgring races..like the 24H from Nürburgring…..they owner is still to 50% Germany and 50% Lindner….and ofcourse the Nordschleife Gmbh ( who are broken 2012…)

          • Deatroy

            Well i based my sentences on this topic + some tweets from Kunos, where they said thereself, its very hard to get in contact with the owners. So it was a tough job :)

      • rbrfanatic .

        It’s not any news that most people on this planet are complete idiots and just want everything for free !

        Hopefully there will be enough people buying the DLCs to sustain the life of the great company called Kunos.

        • rbrfanatic .

          And one of those IDIOTS did not like that post ! – LOL

        • Goodok

          they said the will put 10 cars into a dlc. the cars that we choose. but more than 50% of them are GT cars. I will never buy it because of crap GT cars. so it’s anyway a wrong marketing, cuz it’s not my choise.

          • rbrfanatic .

            OK Don’t buy it and get excluded on the Ring races !

            I guess it must suck being you !

    • look apex

      All people waiting a real gift : track, car, ia, multi.

      I don’t like this. I’m very dissapointed.

      Why you have not announced a release for AC2 in december 2016 ?? -_-’

      • Deatroy

        Idiot, Track and Cars are constantly gifted each 2 weeks via update.
        AI+MP got stated to be released later, close to Version 1.0!

        It wasnt easy at all to get Nordschleife (best track on earth) and its worth to be announced.

      • rbrfanatic .

        Your mom must have dropped you several times as a kid !

        Faceplant !

    • Alexey

      They obviously set the price of the base game content + all the DLC at a higher price than $30-40. And instead of selling everything by a high price, they provide option for you to pay just current price for the base pack and buy additional content if you want. This is better than selling everything (all DLCs included) for $200, for example.
      You shouldn’t think that top quality racing sim with all the content will be as cheap as $30-40.

      • Andreas Tintifax

        again…..one more time…
        ITS NOT ABOUT THE PRICE!!! I WOULD PAY 100 Euros for a lifetime Assetto Corsa pack (if that would exist like in rfactor2)
        ITS ABOUT THE HYPE AND THE MARKETING THEY PRODUCED!!!!!

        • Jackson P.

          I’ll say it again. They produced 0% of the hype….The community produced the rest. Merry Christmas

    • Matthew Dalzell

      You can have a bah humbug Christmas. Paying again is just about right from here…how much of free do you need before your greedy soul is satisfied? I think you need to take a little trip down to Vallelunga to visit our dear KS dev team just to see how much work they have to do in preparing the various components of the game. I think you will realize that it is quite remarkable they haven’t been charging us for EVERY new car they release. They could be a bunch of stingy bastards like iRacing where every new course and car costs a price…but they DON’T.

      • Andreas Tintifax

        im bored allready…you are the last guy who i personal answer because maybe you are to lazy or not able to scroll down and read the other comments… ITS NOT ABOUT F**** paying!!!! ITS ABOUT THE HYPE THEY PRODUCED!!ITS ABOUT THE MARKETING WAY THEY USED!!! I would pay 100 Euros for a lifetime pack like rfactor 2 for assetto Corsa….ITS ALL ABOUT THE LAST 5 DAYS ON FB!!!!!!!!!

        • Deatroy

          Andreas, ask Assetto Corsa or read in forums how hard it was to get a license. Its was nearly impossible at this moment.
          Hype is right.

        • Ethan Dean

          Stop shouting like a child and grow up.

        • rbrfanatic .

          What marketing ?

          There are no marketing !

          Kunos said it before !

          They spend zero money on marketing !

    • James Gore

      Kunos is not responsible for your overactive imagination.

  • Jackson P.

    God I love you guys!

  • BadLaw

    Allready selling DLC before a finished game, DISLIKE.

    • Hurdy Hurdy

      Already selling? They have ‘announced’ the DLC for release in Sep 2014, which will be after the full release of the actual sim.

      They haven’t even started taking pre-orders yet.

      • BadLaw

        I feel if they are going to announce anything else before release it should be free until the finished product is out. If they waited until they were done the game to announce this i bet the sales would be no different for the track and cars as well as they would probably make more money by the higher price of the initial game. They will be one of the first to offer a scanned Nuburgring, they didn’t need to announce this 10 months early that’s just bad PR they should of asked for cars for the pack but not had said the track yet. Not only it is most useless to announce this early but by giving a date for when they want to release its going to give other sims time to get it out before / on time with assetto making them loose the exclusivity they could of had for longer.

  • softgrip

    I have died and gone to heaven…

    All I need is a time machine :) Then goodbye real world… hello AC, Nurberg and Oculus :D

  • Simone Ygy Mercatelli

    wait, wait, wait… we just spend 30€/$/£ (circa) for an un-finished game, wonderful but still unfinished, and you announce that for have the most famous circuit and more car we must spend more money in september 2014?
    The question is: why?

    • Kent Eriksson

      Because its not free to live and develop the best sim of all time, give them some respect.

      • Simone Ygy Mercatelli

        Same answer that I give to another user:
        The problem is not if we’ll buy it or not, seriously we are gamers we buy overpriced shit every time, the problem is the fact that the game itself is still unfinished and they talk about selling DLC in 9 months from now,DLC which contain things that we (the early access player) think must be included in the full game not in a DLC, so we had pay for what?

        • Michal

          No offense…. But WHY THE FUCK did you buy it in the first place? How many other games include this content? Ask for a refund.

    • ODIO POWER

      ti risp in ita che faccio prima. ma scusa ma avevi letto cosa stavi comprando prima di premere aqquista su steam? Se segui la comunity di AC da pun po` di tempo era stato detto che il gioco avrebbe avuto dei DLC. A settembre il gioco sara in full release e quindi se alla kunos hanno voglia di inserire ulteriori contenuti al loro prodotto li dovremo pagare. Come tutti i giochi di questo mondo oramai. Prima non esisteva nulla. Cioe` contenuti extra non uscivano affatto. Comunque il gico sara` moddabile, puoi sempre fartelo da solo il contenuto. Oppure scaricalo da bittorent se non hai euro da mettere in game. Oppure non scaricare il DLC, fine della storia.

      • Simone Ygy Mercatelli

        Oh coso, ho mai detto che non lo comprerò? No, anzi penso proprio che lo prenderò come ho preso l’early access su steam perchè secondo me hanno fatto un lavoro superbo.
        Però mi da fastidio che invece di “annunciare” nuove realease di questa beta (non scordiamoci che mancano un fottio di cose, dai danni alla carriera, in più ci sono molti bug da risolvere) loro pensino già a vendere DLC nel futuro. Legittimo da parte loro, come è legittimo da parte mia sdubbiarmi ;)

        • ODIO POWER

          si ma pure io mi aspettavo chissa` che cosa avrebbero annunciato oggi, ci son rimasto male. un DLC, cioe` a dirla tutto spero ce ne saranno almeno 10 di DLC nel corso della “stagionatura” del gioco. Si vede che a loro andava di fare cosi`. Comunque a me pare che nell early access ci sia tutto quello che avevano detto, pure di piu`. La Mclaren non era stata annunciata ma poi l’hanno messa pre esempio. La beta hanno detto gia` 2 giorni fa che in prossimo update sara` dopo meta` gennaio, faccio una previsione ven 17 gennaio (se non son superstizioni :D ) avremo altre cose da far correre, o schiantare nel mio caso :// sono una pippa :( (

    • Attila Kiss

      Why? Because we begged and voted for it.

    • Alexey

      quote “we just spend 30€/$/£ (circa) for an un-finished game, wonderful but still unfinished”
      Wrong. You payed for a finished game that you will get on release date. This is similar to preorder, except you got possitiblity to play at least something now.

      The description for the game nowhere said that you get “the most famous circuit and more car” after buying the game, yet you still bought it, and now you complain about all this missing from the base content that you payed for? This doesn’t make any sense.

      • ODIO POWER

        Good one. Simply that.

    • Deatroy

      Nobody could get the license of Nordschleife. Nordschleife didnt had an owner. Everyone voted/posted for Nordschleife and you know licenses are expensive like hell, same goes with laser-scanning.
      How you want to refinance it without DLC ?
      Tell me please.

  • Álvaro Tuñón

    Welcome to iAssetto Coracing

    • Deatroy

      i bet you buy all CoD DLC’s or Season Pass’es, but start crying because of one dlc which contains the best track.

  • Chris Lafleur

    Wait…….So I paid for this game and now you want to charge me for stuff that already should be in?? WTF!

    • Kent Eriksson

      Define how you think that it should already be in? Either pay for the track and the stupidly huge amount of work to bring it to life, or you don’t. Don’t be an asshat about it. You got the game for 34 euro or less. You demand lifetime slavery from them for that price?

    • Paolo Davide Lumia

      I’m with you on this, Nordschleife was promoted as a track included in the game. Or was that”Nurburgring” intended as the GP track?

      • Moose

        Nordschleife has never been promoted as a track included in the game.

        • Paolo Davide Lumia

          I checked it, you’re right, it’s the GP track.

    • Joe Aleksandrowicz

      why exactly should this already be in it?

      • Chris Lafleur

        Because the game is in Alpha and still in an un finished state. Don’t you think they should finish the game before asking for more money?

        • Joe Aleksandrowicz

          the content that comes out in 8 months, while the game will be finished in 4, i doubt the track will be scanned and ready for release by the time the game is launched let alone 10 cars

        • Deatroy

          ask CoD or Battlefield how they do it. Got they less people buying it ? No!
          Besides this, Kunos delivers another level of quality.

  • Ignazio P.

    Good work guys! Buon natale! This is a very good license

  • Paolo Davide Lumia

    This christmas announcement is your first real fail… be careful guys.

    • Paolo Davide Lumia

      You can go up or down with my post, but it’s a fact.

      • Deatroy

        You dont know shit about licenses. Its a fact.

    So we can expect multiplayer to be a DLC also? Thanks for screwing us over Kunos. All this hype for a freakin’ DLC that’s coming in 9 months. Fantastic. I’m so excited. Not.

    • Kent Eriksson

      Of course not. -.-

  • xiZverx .

    DISREGARD THE DLC HATERS! We have spoken, you have listened! Nordschleife is DLC worthy

  • Zenon Z Lasu

    Oh, what a fabulous Christmas present….. you’ll get it in about 10 months provided you pay for it. That’s made my day :D

    A present is when you get the multiplayer unlocked so you can spend Christmas racing other people….not a promise of some overhyped racetrack.

    • Moose

      Please point out where anyone said we would be getting a Christmas present? You’re making it up!

      • Zenon Z Lasu

        The very fact it’s Christmas and that’s the time you give and recive presents, maybe? The countdown clock? The fact that the community have repeatedly made it clear that we do not really need new tracks or cars, but the AI / multiplayer feature?

        • Moose

          The fact is no one ever said we were getting a present, and the countdown was known to be an announcement from the day they started it. You’ve just decided in your head it was going to be something more.

          Would that be the same community that have been voting in their thousands for new tracks and cars?

  • Jepsertti

    Remember that DLC don’t have to be paid. It can be free also. And from this: “Shortly, we will be opening our 1 month pre-order phase, providing you with a 50% saving on the final package – that’s right, 10 cars and the Nordschleife.” I actually understand that it will be included in final package for free :)

  • CooperCoop

    That’s a joke Kunos! Everytime the same DLC-Sh**!!! -.-

    • Kent Eriksson

      Do you pay for new parts to your car or do you demand to get it for free? Don’t you pay for gasoline? Or a new spoiler. Or new rims.

  • Tim Vanhee

    Soooo It’s a christmas present that I have to pay for and can only open up in september? Hard to feel not a bit dissapointed.
    But none the less, I can’t wait for it and I’ll gladly pay for it in advance.

  • rbrfanatic .

    I think that all the whiners could go fuck themselves !

    DLC’s is the only way for Kunos to survive and I sure want Kunos to exist for a very very long time !

    If you don’t support DLC’s then get the fuck off !

    • GacelaThompson

      The way to survive is respecng their customs. And with this actions they are going to lose many confidence from us. Mine is close to be gone. This last weeks while I was voting for my favourite cars i was wondering to drive them in the future but now I only be able to play them paying.

      • Deatroy

        They announced 35 cars in the Version 1.0
        They stated a 5 years support plan with DLC and the voting was clear about this.

    • ODIO POWER

      Nice man, and tbh Kunos in the past already had spoken about it. More to come, more to pay. Easy and fair. And its like any game avelible rigth now on any sistem

      • Paolo Davide Lumia

        Again: nothing against DLCs. TO EXPAND AND PROMOTE A FINISHED PRODUCT. This is an amazing game, but that’s not the point. The point is the fact that they’re gettin’ hype with a 10 months from now DLC to whom have already paid for an early version of their (amazing, ok) game.

        That’s simply not fair and unrespectful.

        • Deatroy

          Battlefield announces Premium Package before the game is released. Customers are buying it like hell. Same with CoD.
          Now look at Assetto Corsa. You know how quality made it is.
          Its fair to announce it. They said already there is a 5 year support plan with DLC’s.

      • rbrfanatic .

        A lot of idiots here probably think that the Kunos team don’t eat or sleep or pay rent !

        Such a bunch of ignorant lowlifes !

    • Paolo Davide Lumia

      No, fuck you, bitch.

      Nothing against the DLCs, but please dont’ get the hype with them while we have already paid for a beta version. it’s simple.

      • rbrfanatic .

        Morons like you should be banned to buy AC !

        If you don’t support DLC’s then get the fuck off !

  • Brian Peterson

    What a load of crap with the DLC, why don’t you finally implement TrackIR so I can actually try the alpha that I payed for day 1 before talking about DLC.

    • Attila Kiss

      TrackIR is useless for driving sims. Sorry. It does not simulate anything, quite the opposite.

  • mum89

    i prefer DLC is a 1st avril joke, but it’s chistmas :(

  • erter

    Stop whining and continue to support these guys that gave us this amazing game.
    When you look at it 10-20 euros for DLC is nothing in compare with what you get.
    10 beers cannot compete with lesser scanned ring.

    • Kent Eriksson

      Finally some non-spoiled intelligence in here. Everyone and their mother wants everything for free nowadays with no regard for the amount of work…

      • http://www.rusiczki.net/ János

        For free? I payed for early access without blinking. But now they make all this hype for what? A track which will be released in 9 months as part of a DLC? I’ll probably get it. But I’m pretty disappointed, plus I’m worried about the AI and multiplayer’s future…

        • Francesco Lanciano

          They didn’t make any HYPE, the just said that they will state something.

        • Deatroy

          Its the Nordschleife, its not Vallelunga or Magione.
          25km long, contains everything you want and need.
          i wouldnt complain.

    • rbrfanatic .

      Exactly

      Totally agree !

      I cant believe how many whining idiots there is who just want free stuff all the time !

      They are spoiled morons that can’t appreciate great stuff !

      I will support Kunos and buy every single DLC for sure !

  • look apex

    All people waiting a real gift : track, car, ia, multi.

    And, we have just an announce for a track in september 2014.

    I don’t like this. I’m very dissapointed.

    Why do you had make an evenement for this?!?

    • Deatroy

      Best Track on earth, easy as that.

  • Wurst Hans

    propably get it next christmas sale when the game is finished

  • rbrfanatic .

    Ahhh Look at all the IDIOT WHINERS here !

    FUCKING MORONs !

    Assetto Corsa FTW

    Greatest devs on the planet !

  • Partial Eclipse

    30 euros for such a piece of software is a bargain. In real life, what do you get for 30 euros? What if you converted these 30 euros in salaries for Kunos’ team members? Not everything comes for free and quality has a price. For those who have to plan 10 years ahead before spending 10 bucks in a DLC, be glad that AC will be moddable, so you may well get a free version of the Nurburgring, although not laserscanned. Be happy, it’s Christmas…

    • Juraj Kubricky

      ^— I completely agree with this, but look how many can be found here … :o )

      theres nothing to b1*ch about here, BEST RACING sim ever, and guys going to complain spending
      5€-7€ for a ADDON to such a game? :D lol, get out of here and go play
      lego instead plz

      Really, so many ppl complayning here altough most epic and realistic
      game made by only a few enthusiasths, I could punch all of you haters
      right in the face. They use laser scanning technology and got the best
      car physics EVER made (I think that MGPRS II was pretty accurate too)
      but outmatches everything out there by a league. There Isn’t anything to
      argue about, I’d like to see the haters setting money policy for all
      the work done and technology developed/bought for these goals.

      Btw loving this game and couldn’t be more happier with it, I’d spend
      gladly more on this game to fasten up its development, can’t wait for
      the track, the alma mater of all racers :) thx AC team !

      bravo bravo, cpt out

      • jason mortimer

        I agree kudos you guys are the shit. I would gladly pay 60 dollars for this game. I have 100 hours in already and game convinced me to get an obutto revolution. I’ll have 500 hours in by next year I bet. Anyway you guys are doing the best job ever I will gladly buy whatever kudos is selling. Hell I would like to invest.

    • http://www.doakwolf.com Jeremy Evans

      100% agree!

      I’m so excited for full release and will not hesitate to purchase DLC because in reality, this game is worth a LOT more than will be charged.

      Brilliant! :D

  • Nicky Cuypers

    i like it! As long it isnt like race room where you need to spend a 100$ for some cars and tracks… I can live with a BIG DLC for about 20 or 30$ but the total package cant be bigger than 80$! It is still a game and most of the gamers go to school or just get there first job so… pls Kunos don’t do what the rest of the game industry does and you will have a lot of new players!

    • Deatroy

      They need to live from this product, its their job and quality got his price.

  • Geoff Jen Hall

    Little disappointed thought we were getting something new for our £30 some one to race with new car or track thought one of the greatest tracks in the world whould be in game for free it’s in most games free it’s a great game loving the last update oh well will have to have my wallet raped yet again thanks

  • Stuart Scooby Ellis

    awesome news, cant wait

  • fonzie

    Whe where expecting something very special this christmass and now its still 9 months away…thats what is pissing most people off…..you have to make up with something good next friday Kunos…

  • ODIO POWER

    Haters gonna Hate…. patetic. Assetto Corsa is amazing, even if it still in beta. What the hell are you asking from a 10 man build sim? they have made a masterpice of a game. If in september you cant afford the DLC just dont buy it. No one have played a game like Battlefild3-4 or any cod? is the same, Granturismo ? same again, forza motorsport? wonna the more? they wonna be payed. Like any one. Go Kunos, go AC!

    • Mattia Tacconi

      Yeah but at least GT or FM have tons and tons of circuits and cars.. I have to remember that this game is in Pre alfa.. Why a DLC for a not ended game?

      • rbrfanatic .

        Yeah right and GT or FM feels like SHITE and will be dated within a year !
        AC on the other hand will evolve and thrive and live for years just like RBR !

      • ODIO POWER

        they just made an anouncment. In september now i belive the game will be above the 1.0 release. So if they wonna put a huge contenent they can ask you some money in return. In mine opinion is normal

    • Nicky Cuypers

      you’re right butt the overall price can’t be higher than +-80€/$/…
      Gran turismo has 1200 cars that’s sweet! Forza has 400? in the early forza gales you had a lot of cars and now since horizon you only get a couple of cars and all the rest even old forza model cars are DLC’s! that ain’t right they should lower the price of the game itself like Assetto Corsa this game costs +-35€/$/… and not 69 like most of the games

      • ODIO POWER

        yeah i cant complain about yout point of wiew but those game are made by a molti zillion milionb software house, Now Assetto is made buy 10 man in a studio-lab-circuit. Assetto Corsa will global sell like GT6 can do in the first day. So Gt6 DLC will come almost for free, but the game price is 60/70 auro.. Ac not. Im already tinking about a 20 or more euros for the DLC, and i will pay because this is a gr8 game, not a playstation game, with all the respect for polyphony digital but AC is in another league.

  • TheSkyline35

    WHAAAAAAT ? A DLC ??? WE PAY FOR SUPPORT YOU AND WE HAVE A DLC !!!

    Pff fucking game industry, you destroy everything !

  • What

    I can’t believe this comment section. Kunos said that there would be paid DLC months ago, and in EVERY comment section there were people screaming for the Nordschleife. Now everybody is whinging about paid Nordschleife DLC. You only paid $30-40 for a massive pile of cars and tracks, plus all the mods and updates that are to come. That was a bargain for the enjoyment you will, and likely already have, gotten out of it.

    Scanning the Nordschleife is a massive, expensive, unprecedented task, and you’re already shitting on the developers you supposedly love because you don’t want to pay for highly-anticipated content. I mean seriously, some of you expected it to be in the base game? What? How? The base content has already been announced, and greatly expanded upon with stuff like Spa and the Ferrari 312T, FOR FREE. And you’re crying.

    Grow up.

  • Pedro Alvarez Gomez

    A DLC with Nurburgring-Nordschleife + 10 cars coming in september 2014 is not going to “ruin my holidays”

    Honestly, game still not finished, no IA and more important no multiplayer, and now you talk about DCL and pay more…

    Im not happy

  • Husa

    I’m more than happy to pay what one track in iracing costs for an official nords. +10 cars. We might get an unofficial version anyways. I never expected nords to be included in the main game and I’m buying unless the price ends up ridiculous.

  • Jonathan Woltke

    You kno..i dont care if they announce a DLC before a release. What I dont want its a finished game that i payed for in advanced with only about 20 cars when its released. Im expecting AT LEAST 100 cars when this thing comes out. Nurburgring and all that..thats awesome dudes. Really cool. DLC with more cars, DLC with more tracks, DLC with mroe cool stuff.. awesome!. Im gonna pay for all that but a finished product with a mediocre car lineup? Thats not the way.

    • What

      There has been no point in the development of this sim that it has ever been possible to have more than 100 cars on release. If you ever thought that was possible, you were grossly misinformed about the product you were purchasing. This is a SIMULATOR, developed by TEN PEOPLE, aiming for complete detail and accuracy. This is not Forza, this is not Gran Turismo.

      • Jonathan Woltke

        I guess i am misinformed then because that;s what i am expecting. Its an enjoyable sim tho. I just dont want to be paying for each car that comes out.

        • Francesco Lanciano

          And you want to master’em all? ROFL!

          • Jonathan Woltke

            Maybe because your style of play is different than mine. I enjoy cars.. i don’t care about “mastering” them. So yeah..

          • Francesco Lanciano

            So AC is absolutely not for you: it’s a niche product made for hardcore simmers, not for FM’s players who can’t even understand the difference between FM and AC…

            The sim-racing community, to which is clear that you do not belong, asks for the most close to reality representation of both car and track + weather engine, not for a lot of cars and tracks. You can be sure that most of us would be happy to pay, as we did, 20 euro for FVA, to have just ONE CAR and 4 tracks, but a very realistic F1 rendition.

      • rbrfanatic .

        And for the love of GOD let’s hope that AC will NEVER EVER turn into anything like Forza or Gran Turismo !

    • rbrfanatic .

      You are the typical GT or FM gamer who thinks more of everything is better !

      Kunos is quality before quantity !

      We don’t want it to be like GT or FM with a lot of half assed cars and tracks that feel like shit and all the same.

      I personally would be glad if I had only Monza and Imola and the 599XX, Zonda and the 458 than GT and FM with hundreds of shitty cars !

      • Jonathan Woltke

        Thats is true and yes i am a typical FM, GT gamer. Its my first time playing a sim actually. And that is true too, I dont want all those shitty cars but thats why i said at least 100 and not 1200 or 500 like those other two games have. There are at least 100 good cars that this sim should have but are we paying for all of em? are we only getting like 20 cars when AC comes out? thats my concern.

        • rbrfanatic .

          It’ll take you until September 2014 to learn to drive the current cars in AC !

          The cars in AC all feel different to drive and takes time to get to know !

          Do you pay for food and clothes in your country ?

    • Francesco Lanciano

      Go play FM, I m sure you won’t notice any difference.

  • zerotoan

    EA? Activision? micro$oft??? What a waste of $$$

  • Michal

    To the people who are complaining… I just don’t understand.. It’s unfathomable. Do you actually believe that you are overpaying even if this DLC pack costs as much as you paid for AC early access? No problem. You don’t have to buy it! This is like complaining that cars need fuel.

  • Everton Menor

    I HATE DLC!!!

    • ODIO POWER

      than dont buy it. Easy not? Tnx for sharing your opinion.

      • Everton Menor

        Really idiot?
        When I bought did not have this warning. Multiplayer is more importante than DLC´s.

        • ODIO POWER

          Multiplayer will come even before the track…. you dont know the Kunos road map for Assetto Corsa maybe. Your problem.

  • Partial Eclipse

    Short question regarding the Dream Pack DLC: Don’t you want to go for another round of votes with the cars missing in the poll but suggested by the community? Also can we expect other DLCs handpicked by Kunos? Some historical content for example :-)

  • salvasirignano .

    I think in this day and age it’s unrealistic to expect all this extra content to be given free of charge, given how much laser-scanning costs.
    The early access is thirty pounds, an absolute steal for the most realistic and promising sim made to date. When it is completed, I will have a great game with great quality base content, AI and multiplayer that will be mine to keep on my HD forever, (not like some of the other subscription based sims), all for the price of a night out on the beer.
    The DLC is all optional, but I wouldn’t hesitate to pay say 20 euros or so for a laser-scanned Nords and ten cars in a DLC pack.
    I mean a new PS4 game is something like 70 euros….

    • ODIO POWER

      10 car (and if they will be the car we voted for will be hell of a roster) green hell laresr scan? oh man, just say the price!!!

  • Michal

    I hate the haters. You don’t have to pay anything if you don’t want it… You already have the most affordable and best racing sim of all time. Why are you complaining that you can SAVE some money by not paying for this DLC. Why don’t you go buy a better sim with a laserscanned Nordschleife?? This is what you should consider as a AAA racing sim. Why do you you expect that it should cost LESS than just about anything less? Licenses are EXPENSIVE. I think even if Kunos got a Porsche license you’d all be complaining even if it cost 1 cent. Honestly, I have only debt and no money, but I can’t fathom the twisted ego that the haters have. /rant

    • Marcos Entrialgo Castro

      Agree completely

      • rbrfanatic .

        +1

  • Hurdy Hurdy

    Will AC actually be scanning the circuit, or will they have data that is already available to work from?

    To be able to scan the circuit, build it in sim and also create the 10 car pack all in time for Sep 2014 seems a hell of an ask, even for a company with many more staff than Kunos.

    I’m sure they’ll do a great job, but 0 months seems a bit of push if this includes actually scanning the track.

    Also, will the scan include the GP circuit, which is usually part of the full Nordschleife endurance races?

    • Stepreo

      I believe the Grand Prix circuit was already scheduled to be included. It would be great if the VLN and 24hr layouts are in!

  • Kevin Becker

    I think this announcement is a pretty bad let down for the community. Not because there will be DLC, we all knew it for long enough.
    It’s a let down for me, because the announcement is just unnecessary since most of us should know it since the last vote.
    I expected from all of the hyping AI or even MP or just another epic car package like the last one. But to announce the Nordschleife? This is unexpected and kinda ruined my day. Don’t get me wrong, I voted for the track too and I totally will buy this DLC with joy. I support Kunos as good as I can and the best way I can do it, is making YouTube videos about AC. But without new content I can’t do it :(
    So Kunos, hope you will make the next Update even better than the last one (AI or MP :D ) so I can support you even more^^

  • Hype Badger

    Awesome news, thanks Kunos. Can’t wait to race on this track! Make sure you don’t forget when its released in September, sign up on http://www.hypebadger.com/projects/assetto-corsa-your-racing-simulator.html for updates :)

  • Twaint

    And one thing, there will also be paying more for the multiplayer and all other Cars leaving new?

    • rbrfanatic .

      How do you become so pathetic ?
      Must be a virus or something !

      AC alone is worth ten times the actual price !

      • ODIO POWER

        yessir! 35 euro for assetto is a bargain, 26 if you buy in xmas sales. WTF are you asking guys! Is a 10 man work, not a 10 Turn game. (genius joke here)

        • mum89

          35€ it’s ALPHA not a final game fanboy

          • ODIO POWER

            lol. You will not be charged buy any euro for the full release, Steam will download the update as asual, 35 in eraly acces mean 35 euro final prica. End of the story. Alpha beta and gamma what ever man, do you know that right?? Do you know what is an early access on steam?? do you read the “term of” before buy something??? Jesus Crist. So now by now the game (at least for me..) is cost like about 34.99 euro. Tell me if ‘m i wrong.

      • Twaint

        I have missed time in nimgun anyone like to tell me I’m an OK virus?

    • rbrfanatic .

      Your mom must have dropped you many times as an infant !

      Poor You !

  • Francesco Lanciano

    It is totally unbelievable how a large part of the simracing community can’t understand a simple point: they asked TO THE COMMUNITY what other tracks we want included in AC during the past days. Now, they gave us an official answer, stating that they will LASERSCAN the Green Hell and it will be included in a DLC. Why to get so mad at the dev team? Aren’t you intelligent enough to understand that before to produce something, they’ve to plan WHAT to produce and to fund the expenses?
    They listened to the community’s request and in the end they get even offended…
    It looks like giving pearls to the porks.

    • rbrfanatic .

      Well the problem is that all these whiners aren’t intelligent enough to understand the facts !

      These people are a bunch of sad individuals !

  • Oguzhan Koksal

    I really dont understand all the complaints.. The so called “over-hype” was created by the community. All Kunos did was to say they would make an announcement. As ussual people had huge expectations and now they are whinning when those expectations have not been met. Come down guys, it is still the same game. Just some extra content for those that are willing to pay for it. Btw, there was a huge demand for Nordschleife from the community. This at the least shows that they listen to the people who have invested in their game. Plus, I am quite sure 99% of us dont know shit about the effort that goes on to scanning a track like Nordschleife.. I personally think the game is shaping up great. I have invested in many early access games and it is safe to say that AC and Starbound are getting the quickest content updates. Well done guys!

  • Francesco Lanciano

    Sim-arcaders can’t just be part of the elite sim-racing community, as all these negative comments show…
    AC just isn’t for you: go buy FM or NFS as these are the titles that best suite you.
    We hardcore simmers are the elite of simracing.
    We are a small niche and we want to continue just likt that.
    Dear Motorsporter and NeederForSpeeder: we do not want you, so don’t bother us with your stupid whinings.

    • rbrfanatic .

      Well put my friend !
      There should be a driving license for all Sim racers !
      Would be really nice to get rid of all the pathetic stupid whiners !

      I am quite sure most of them can’t drive fast anyway !

    • Genocidal

      Dear Francesco: You should be more welcoming of all types of racers. Let them play the game and have fun how they want, because it doesn’t hurt you. Your elitist attitude will only help to drive people away and lower interest in the game, in turn giving Kunos less money to develop this amazing game. The negativity you put out is actively harmful to the thing you enjoy.

      • Francesco Lanciano

        I m not an elitist. Hardcore simming has always been a small niche, not open to everyone.

  • Everton Menor

    DLC? Ridiculous news. Where’s Multiplayer? Multiplayer is more important than DLC’s.

    • Francesco Lanciano

      Can’t you read what they already wrote weeks ago? It will be added close to the final release and, BTW, where would be the new in stating today that they will add the multiplayer or the AI? These features were already included and their release already scheduled.

      • Everton Menor

        I’ll believe it only when I see it, FanBoy. Staying speaking is very easy.

        • Francesco Lanciano

          Look, it’s not a matter of speaking easy: I trust them because of the high quality of their preiovus works.
          You must be probably used to other realities but hey, this lack of trust it’s your problem and of the producers that disappointed you.

          • Everton Menor

            I’m liking the Assetto Corsa, but if this was the big announcement to make, it would be better not to have said anything and keep working. “Iracing fazendo escola”

      • ODIO POWER

        a lot of people dont even know what they had choose to buy when took the early access of a game. Bha!

  • franci

    Kunos really succeed “ruin” our Christmas hehe. But not with announcement, but because we now arguing with each other :) Have a nice Christmas you all and also i wish Kunos all best in new year and my wish is do it with less childish PR that started with STEAM.

    • Francesco Lanciano

      We are not arguing, just explaining to the NeederForSpeeder fanboys, that hardcore simracing is quite different from the kind-arcade-garden.

      Have a nice XMAS!

  • Christoph Gerlach

    ONE real driven lap on the Nordschleife is 26 euros or so. 30 euros are a bargain ;) you get ten cars as well… one car at forza5 is 70eur and gt6 is 140eur. i think the price from kunos is more than good. BUT i am honest, the Hype is tooooo huge cause everyone knows the Nordschleife is coming!

  • Alexander

    This is rediculous.
    September 2014? Worth it the such of attention? No. You shouldn’t do this announcement at least earlier than the summer!!! But not even in 2014!

    About DLC. I won’t EVER pay a cent for the DLC with other’s choise like GT cars in it. Make two different packs. One with road cars and second with GT cars, then we will talk..

  • Jason Garrett

    I hope all of you complaining never EVER try iRacing because you will be sorely disappointed. Over there, they announce content and we are lucky to get it within in a year, and it’s normally quite a bit longer, if ever. We were supposed to have features like driver swaps and real endurance racing 2 years ago. We had a Honda HSV-010 announced more than 18 months ago and we are likely never going to get it. I’m not bashing iRacing though, I love it, I’m making a point. Announcing content well ahead of time is normal, as long as we actually get it.

    So stop whining about not getting something other than an announcement for Christmas Eve, Kunos never said it was going to be new content that we were getting.

  • Serge Berlina

    Everyone needs to stop bitchin n grow some balls. Bunch of girls complaining, don’t like it? Go play mario cart.. no one is forcing you to be hyped up for anything, n one is forcing you to buy a dlc, its a choice.

    Merry Christmas Everyone! Keep on drifting/racing!

    P.S. For devs I would like to request Honda S2000. I’d pay 5 bucks for it. Thank you. :)

    • ODIO POWER

      hey man, Mario Kart its a masterpice !! choose another exemple :D im with you for the S2000 ;)

  • Mags

    This is good news! Really awesome, don’t know how i´m going to stand out until September though… ;) Thanks Kunos.

  • Guest

    Just great! Thank you very very much, Kunos. And Mary Chrismas to all…

  • Schlaubi

    Just great! Thank you very much, Kunos. And mary Chrismas to all…

  • Chris D

    So everyone who is “mad” and calling this “hype”

    If this was announced for any other sim, iRacing, RE3, Forza,GT6…. Would you not be expected to pay for this? Even it it wasnt the ring but other stuff and 10 add on cars. You would pay for it.

    Buon Natale KS!

    • Sh Prishtina

      Those games you listed are finnished games and this is far,far from done. Which makes them seem arrogant.

      • Chris D

        Nope sorry, by iR’s own admission it will be in constant beta for years to come. R3E is far from done too.

        1.0 will be finished in the next 2-3 months if you read their forums. Constant updates and support for 5 years are planned.

  • Jason Garrett

    KUNOS did *NOT* create this hype! They said they are going to make an announcement on December 24th. YOU ALL are the ones who created the hype with your assumptions that it would be an unscheduled update with features like AI or multiplayer or new content. You have no one to blame but yourself for your disappointment.

    Get over yourselves.

    Merry Christmas!

    • Fabian Puorger

      My words…. Merry X-Mas

    • rthki

      So I guess its the community’s fault they decided to make the announcement Christmas Eve, had a countdown, and a map of the time of the announcement.

      • Jason Garrett

        They came through with their promise right? They made an an announcement on Dec 24th. If it’s not what you expected the announcement to be, that’s your problem, not Kunos’

  • jax

    Hey Kunos team!! next time dont you ever make hype for the community. There are alot of idiots around ready to cut you in half for not delivering exactly what they imagined. It’s crazy how many people complain about this. Seriously you people need to STFU and stop complaining about. The game is splendid, it gets dev support, mod support, big future ahead. Why the f are you complaining??? let the devs work in peace!

  • Richard Point

    I cant believe they are talking about DLC when the game is not finished.

    By the way, a notice that could ruin my holidays could be AI or multiplayer, not a DLC coming in 11 months…

    • Francesco Lanciano

      Probably AI and multyplayer are already scheduled? Where would the new be?

  • ricko rizasyam

    anjing masa bayar lagi, pay again? $39 not enough? did kunos think to low budget player? fuck

    • ODIO POWER

      yes, this is why Assetto corsa isnt priceed @ 59 euro/dollar.

  • Alex

    KS, are you so much sure that you will make this game well to launch? How could you tell us about paid dlc while your game doesn’t have multiplayer yet or even AI. Let’s see how your will implement those two features and only then you might to do such statements like paid DLC etc.

    • Francesco Lanciano

      AI and Multy are already scheduled.

      • Alexander

        so what? I’m totally agree with OP. TDU2 had AI and Multi too, but it doesn’t make any sense because of crap implementation.

        • Francesco Lanciano

          And? today’s statement was only to let the community know that they will add the Nordschleife as the community requested and release it as a DLC. Stop.
          It had nothing to do with the things that you are listing.

          • Alex

            you obviously can’t read. I was talking about that they don’t even have their game ready for multi and we all could been disappointed about it when it’s done, but they already did such a statement that they planning a paid dlc. No, first of all the players must see that AC works well and the devs should prove that. And only then they may tell us about paid content.

          • Francesco Lanciano

            AH! GOTCHA! So they should have stated that they will reproduce the Nordschleife, even if a large part of the community wanted that track added already now and it was badly asking for it, ONLY in May or June… Your logic impresses me.

          • Alex

            you still get me wrong. It seems you the one here who have no logic. the discussion is over.

  • alfaco78

    I can not understand what you’re complaining about. Have you paid 35 Euros for one of the finest simulations ever, with licenses for cars and tracks important, where it will be implemented AI, multiplayer and modding. I think it’s a fair price even if there will be DLC to buy. If I also think the video game industry that the average cost of the products stood at € 45 including those of poor quality

  • Pela Do

    If in September 2014, the multiplayer works perfect, I will have no problem buying any dlc selling.

    • Andreas Tintifax

      Me too!Without any doubt
      But i just hoped more Info about release Date for AI or Info….but not that kind of Info when the game is not even finish : /

  • Michal

    I’m super excited about the opportunity to get the DLC at 50% off. I hope they include some Japanese cars in there. Maybe a Nissan GT-R? That would blow my mind.

  • Tapin’ Sapien

    Merry Christmas to all you brilliant Sim racers! – p.s all i want for xmas is, Nurbugring :D

  • Goodok

    The mistake is – they really made a hype. The countdown they made was completely useless. To announce the DLC in Sep 2014 there was no need to make such a noise. Especially still in 2013. If they do it in May 2014 it would be much more constructive and the reactions of the community would be not so sharp. I’m disappointed . Cuz the noise they’ve created by the countdown etc was worth much more.

  • Kristian

    This is great news. can’t wait to drive this track. Keep up the excellent work Kunos, and merry Christmas to all. :)

  • Art Vartanov

    Best Christmas present, PERIOD!
    p.s. for 30 euros you can get a lap at the ring in your car, but immortalizing this epic track in a simulation is worth far, far more. AC deserves a statue in the Eifel mountains, since there’s the fear of the ring being sold or even closed.

    • Iroquois

      Jesus Christ are you fucking serious? A company shits on you and lap it up like some kind of shit loving sperg lord.

  • Andreas Knöpke

    Loving the news! <3 Thanks KUNOS, keep going! :)

  • Airiaen

    September 2014 seems like a long wait but oh well heh. I’m glad the game itself plays potentially well

  • kjell elvis

    But they need 3d trees to hang on to the nextgen part. Trees in Assetto and Race 07 looks almost the same :(

  • Luis Gil Martinez

    DLC?iros a la puta mierda.hombre.acabamos de comprar y ya pidiendo perras.
    Ya os váis a enterar,si os ponéis así..YA HAY VERSIÓN PIRATA,vosotros mismos.
    Eso sí.aquí no se toca nada,que lo he comprado original.Pero existe versión pirata actualmente.Ok? ..AVISADOS QUEDÁIS

  • Soz

    This is ridiculous, sorry, you made an early access game that costs a normal amount of money and has very poor content, then you promise that the final version will have more content, and then you say that pretty much all of the interesting content will be paid for and that the normal content will be poor and dull… Why pay for a game if we have to pay for its content again. I know that there are some Greeks in the dev team, πατρίδα μη μας γαμάς έτσι…

  • Matt Parra

    Nissan s13 hatch and coupe,, Toyota ae86 would be sick

  • warren

    As far as I’m concerned, AC outshines all other racing titles by far larger companies with bigger budgets to throw around! Regardless of what this team does they have my support to ensure that future quality products have real heart and soul like AC.

  • Guest

    Blast!!! thought that was for my profile picture. Can’t find a way to delete it!

  • warren

    AC outshines the other racing titles produced by far larger companies with far larger wallets. I fully support the AC Team to ensure future titles have as much heart and soul as AC.

  • doctorcrypto

    Looking forward to this .. best game I’ve played in a long long time .. would love to see the BBC Top Gear track if that was possible (due to licensing).

  • someguy

    Since I wasn’t quick enough to get into pCARS and now have to wait for the release – I was looking to AC to give me a nordschleife fix… I was just about to purchase when I realized that the track would only be released as DLC. I really just came here to say thanks but no thanks. Did you really think announcing DLC 9 months in advance, when your game is not even finished was a good idea?

  • karl

    Nordschleife in the DK2 rift this year is “change underpants to wets” fantastic but i’d like to see more sound options to tinker with in the final game as on both my headphones and 5.1 speaker set up the engines do sound a bit like i’ve got a helmet on.Don’t get me wrong it’s not GT bad in any way,sub woofer end of the spectrum is brilliant and direct just the mid-higher end engine notes don’t have the teeth that they could for me . Keep up the good work :)

  • Iroquois

    So are all other cars that get added going to be paid dlc? Because if I buy the game with less than 30 cars, and am expected to buy the rest of the cars then this game is officially a greasy piece of shit that I will pirate, and encourage others to pirate

  • TED KARAS

    35 for AC…after 1 week…
    180 for wheel…after a month…
    250 for New monitor.
    AC MADE MY DAY.
