    Assetto Corsa Dream Pack 2

    Welcome to DREAM PACK 2, the latest add-on content pack for ASSETTO CORSA.

    This package adds the Circuit of Catalunya and eight new awesome cars in ten different versions to the Assetto Corsa racing game. Get it today and join the most thrilling virtual driving experience ever!


    The Circuit of Barcelona
    Due to its complexity, it took nine months of work to reproduce the Circuit of Catalunya. Laser Scanning Technology allowed the team to recreate the most faithful version of the Spanish track available in any racing game to date.

    For the first time ever in a PC racing simulation, the Circuit of Catalunya has been digitally recreated using Laser Scanning Technology. Every single detail of the track has been reproduced with maximum level of precision. A resolution of 2 cm guarantees that every single bump, curb and slope is a perfect match to the real counterpart. The resulting accuracy combined with the advanced physics model of Assetto Corsa offers an unprecedented driving experience blurring even more the difference between virtual racing and reality.


    The Cars
    Similarly to Dream Pack 1, the cars in Dream Pack 2 were selected through polls, with gamers voting for their favourite manufacturers and models on our website. The pack includes a perfect mix of vehicles of different classes, types and periods, ready to satisfy our fans’ hunger for racing.

    There is the Lamborghini Huracan GT3, introducing this awesome racing car produced by Lamborghini Automobili for the first time in any PC simulation, followed by the legendary Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattro Valvole. The epic Ford GT40 MK1 is the first FORD model to be included in Assetto Corsa. The AUDI R8 ULTRA 2014 is one of the most-wanted racing cars by Assetto Corsa fans, as well as other unique models such as the RUF RT12R and the SCG003 prototype, designed and built by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus.
    The BMW M4 Coupé also deserves a special mention, as this car has been reproduced in partnership with Akrapovič, a brand that is synonymous with the highest level of design, performance enhancement and the creation of an unmistakable, deeply resonant exhaust sound.

    Assetto Corsa 1.3
    Assetto Corsa version 1.3 introduces some great improvements to the core game engine and new features to the physics engine.

    The game now supports native 64-bit code. The physics engine has been reworked and is now completely multithreaded. As a result, the driving precision is augmented, the accuracy has further improved and the physics solver has enough horsepower to completely resolve any difficult calculations at any speed, achieving butter-smooth Force Feedback and a complete elimination of signal noise and vibrations.

    Assetto Corsa’s top-class physics engine has been constantly evolving and improving. The AC physics code already includes various industry-first features, such as advanced active aerodynamics, four-wheel drive simulation with active differentials, realistic driving assists systems, unique hybrid engines simulation and advanced tyre-wear features, such as blistering, graining and flat spots.

    With version 1.3 we now present you a completely reworked tyre model that includes new features in connection with tyre-speed sensitivity, combined grip, slip angles and ratios, load sensitivity, rolling resistance and most importantly, separated heating for surface and core temperatures. As a result, driving in Assetto Corsa is now more realistic than ever. The driving experience is more natural while at the same time also more challenging at the limit. Real-life features such as driving carefully in the first two laps to heat the tyres or taking it easy to cool down overheated tyres after a spin, the handling of the car changing from turn to turn depending on your driving style or as a result of driver errors and choosing the correct tyre compound depending on the track and car combination and also your driving style will now become part of your daily driving experience in Assetto Corsa.

    We did not stop at the tyres though. We have improved the ABS system and now depending on the car, Assetto Corsa supports different generations of ABS systems using 1 to 4 channels. We have enabled active differentials also for RWD cars, such as the brand new BMW M4, which is part of the Dream Pack 2 DLC. We also have improved the height sensitivity of front splitters and diffusers making their influence more complex from a setup engineering point of view and more demanding from the aspect of the driver, creating an overall more satisfactory experience for everyone.

    Do not just drive by memory some binary data values that resemble cars on your screen. Drive cars that are “alive”, constantly changing their behaviour from turn to turn as a response to your personal driving style.
