    Find this to be a bit odd - What does win 8 have that win 7 does not? It,s not DX as it is the same version on both OS.
    Will it not be supported by Kunos on win 7?

    Well, for one, better VR support. I believe you cannot have ASW in Win7.

    Pretty cool with this, so long that the future still holds dear to AC2 :) I like the competitive ranking system idea, and moving to UE4 is a great choice for dynamic weather and time.

    However, I really don't want to give up AC itself for its classic racing content and street cars. AT the very least, the classic racing content. Group C and 90's DTM are burned into my brain as "go to" when I need a serious sim driving experience. Likewise is the competitive nature of those series, too. But a diversion from....well....diversity can definitely bring the RACING aspect up to the experience of the driving simulator we all love. Even without the ranking and system in place, AC was an incredible racing platform and I still managed amazing (actually the closest racing I've ever had in my life) races with little issues thanks to minorating and the community striving for being social about it.

    I'm excited but I was never much of a GT driver, more of those 90's and 80's enthusiast. Nonetheless I'll get into it and try my best! I know KUNOS will knock it out of the park. No hand-holding. Either you race and practice and get better, or your get frustrated and give up. That's what I've always liked about KUNOS development. There is no guide, only practice and experience.

    Mainstream support for Windows 7 ended three years ago, extended support ends in 2020. I imagine the full release of Assetto Corsa Competizione is going to be either in 2019 or 2020 and game support will will go well past Microsoft's extended support for Windows 7, so I'm guessing there's not much point for Kunos to support the OS anymore.

    (Edit: And it's not set in stone that the game uses DirectX at all, could just as well be Vulkan for all we know.)

    The ACC News and Announcments section here on the forum talks about added tutorials, so there will be some kind of help. Maybe a driving school?

    This worries me a bit.. they mention 24h of Spa like it was the only 24h event possible.
    the wording kinda makes it sound like that...

    Im still not really convinced about Day/Night Cycle since it wasnt mentioned explicit. I mean it wouldn´t make sense not to implement Day/Night Cycle since they are changing to the UE4 and Kunos wants to offer a next-level Sim Racing title with the Blancpain GT Licence (Way to go Kunos!). But Weather und Nightracing was confirmed after all but not the cycle itself. Does someone know more about that matter?

    Someone already ponted this sentence out after someone asked the same question:

    "There will also be the opportunity to compete in different moments of the iconic Total 24 Hours of Spa, with a dynamic weather system recreating the famously unpredictable climate at the Ardennes track."

    But this is still no confirmation for me. What does "the opportunity to compete in different moments of the iconic Total 24 Hours of Spa, with a dynamic weather system recreating the famously unpredictable climate at the Ardennes track." actually mean... Sounds to me like a "Challenge Mode" IMO.

    I hope Kunos can clear this up soon. Anyway I really like whats coming to us. It looks so good already. Wish the Kunos Simulazioni Team all the best for the upcoming sim racing title and their future plans for it.

    Or maybe it's just about replicating official events for online ranked races (esports) and singleplayer campaign/special event modes. I guess you missed the "Free Play" part.

    Even AC has a 'dawn to dusk' time progression, why would a new title with a more capable engine, night racing and dynamic weather not offer time progression around the clock?

    I know where you are coming from but still.... I was just wondering why it hasnt been mentioned in the slightest in the announcment as one of the keyfeatures for ACC. I mean it´s a big deal like weather and nightrace itself.

    I actually do expect Day/Night cycle otherwise It wouldnt make sense (as you just pointed out) to change to a more capable Engine and not to implement this feature. Just wondering why so silent about this.

    Edit: Sorry bad english....

    Great news and congrats for adding the Blancpain GT Series license to Assetto Corsa.

    I do fancy GT (racing) cars quite a bit, from the past GT1 and GT2 series (great fun with SimBin’s GTR) and even more with the currently Assetto Corsa’s GT3.
    In a strictly racing perspective I find it much more interesting than road cars although I do enjoy AC road cars just as much as the GT3.
    Considering what Marco said and can be read in Blancpain GT Series web page announcement, this is “just” the starting of a new challenge for Kunos and when I remember what was the start of AC and to where it reached if this is the start of the second AC project I can’t begin to imagine what Kunos will achieve this second time around.

    By my side I just started as I did with AC: added Assetto Corsa Competizione to my Steam Wishlist :D and I’m calmly waiting for this Summer where I can purchase it in Steam Early Access and play it for the first time. Until then I’ll continue to enjoy AC just as before.;)

    I never left the track....

    Great news. I can't wait, I find online most of the time it's the GT3 servers that are full and hence the ones always worth joining.
