    Assetto Corsa Competizione, the new official game of the BLANCPAIN GT SERIES, an official grand touring racing series, named after world-renowned Swiss watch manufacturer Blancpain and organized by SRO Motorsports Group, will be speeding onto Steam Early Access this summer.

    Featuring an extraordinary level of simulation quality that allows players to experience the unique atmosphere of this GT3 Series, players can 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 Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens 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

    Stay tuned for more information... www.assettocorsa.net/competizione

  3. But no modding, I'm assuming due to the Blancpain licensing? (Best start a thread for it instead of the announcement post :) )

    Forget modding for once lol

    Can't wait for the next generation of AC. I am so shaken to see rain and night in the screenshots and the announcement video. Moreover - intelligent rating system to be introduced later. It is incredible.

    great news! now this sound more like becoming "your racing simulator" rather than a "driving/trackday simulator"

    if it turns out to be the hardcore racing experience that i hope it will be i am lost for words. - maybe i will get a manual pit limiter finally :p

    AC... with an official series licence, a modern graphics engine, day/night time cycle, weather, ranking system and leaderboards... even ECU mapping?! Also, available in Steam Early Access this soon -- I was hoping for but definitely didn't expect something like this, this announcement exceeds my expectations. Really is a dream come true.

    Not very interested, I did not buy AC solely because of GT3 cars. But I do seriously hope that these weather conditions could make their way into the next installment of the base game.

    Street cars (*not with a cheater slicks) + old bias ply tire race cars is where AC physics shine!
    GT3 is for the masses, that where the money is, and KS knows it:rolleyes::(

    Congratz on the license.

    I will be ready in summer when it drops on steam.

    Rain and night with endurance support. Cannot wait.

    Unreal 4 is amazing graphics engine its so optimized will look amazing.


    Wonder why its Assetto Corsa Competizione instead of something related to Blancpain GT Series the game?

    Probably because AC is a known brand, built already strong reputation for good handling among consoles, gaming press etc.

    GT3 is not my #1 favorite type of car, but considering everything else, definitely super hyped and Day 1 purchase. And even if you consider GT3's a bit "easy" to drive, getting into aquaplaning at high speed, with other of your headlights broken, should spice things up :D

    Perhaps to keep their options for different official licences open for the future. AC was a long-term project so ACC no doubt is the same. Who knows though.

    Awesome stuff. :) The way i see it, the GT3's are the most popular cars anyway, in terms of online racing, so, this is really great.

    This is great news to GT series lovers and of course big thing for Kunos. It was smart move to use Unreal Engine than try to make own gfx engine. Nice to see that rain and night is also included to ACC.

    There is also many question marks, is this just offical game of blancpain series or will there be other content included later etc.

    I’m personally happy about news of ACC, there is always room to new racing game. :)

    Great news! I wonder if my i5 processor and HD7850 will be enough to cope with all this additional eye candy tho.

    gotta keep the brand name in the title i guess

    i dunno ... i'm not at all excited about this announcement
    extremely limited content, most of which we already had in AC so it's mostly new functionality
    new engine (which to my knowledge hasn't been used for racing games so far)
    therefore no carry-over of previous content (vanilla/mods)
    probably no modding

    even if this is a step on the way to a full AC2 with more diverse content ... the second to last point stands ... i just hope that modders keep making stuff for AC ... i can imagine many people will stick with it even after the release of ACC

    at least now we know why the M6 wasn't released for AC ... lol

    What sort of software technology will ACC feature:

    Directx 12 (re: multiple non-SLI'd independant gfx cards)?

    Vulkan?

    WWise?

    Can we be sure finicky, hardware damaging / SSD drive destroying DRM will be avoided (Denuvo) ?
