Assetto Corsa v1.0.1 + RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD AVAILABLE AS GIFT ITEM!

The RUF-Automobile license for Assetto Corsa has been announced some time ago, allowing KUNOS Simulazioni to reproduce in its acclaimed racing game some of the most iconic cars of the German Car manufacturer.

KUNOS Simulazioni wishes to thank all Assetto Corsa fans and users with a new update, available as free gift item on Steam: the RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD is available today!

The Ruf CTR (Group C, Turbo Ruf) also known as the CTR Yellowbird or simply Yellowbird, was a limited-production, high performance sports car produced by Ruf Automobile of Germany.
Introduced for the 1987 model year and based on the Porsche 911, the CTR featured an enlarged and highly tuned version of Porsche's 3.2 litre flat-six cylinder engine, lightened body panels, an integrated roll cage (adding chassis stiffness in addition to occupant safety), upgraded suspension and braking systems, a custom-designed transmission, and several unique trim pieces such as polyurethane bumpers, and the use of the fender-mounted oil filter (a Porsche feature for the 1972 MY only) necessitated by relocating the oil tank forward to clear the intercooler on that side.

Developing 469 hp (350 kW) and 408 lb·ft (553 N·m) of torque and weighing in it at only 2,530 pounds (1,147 kg), the CTR provided stellar performance, with a 0-60 mph time of around 4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour (320 km/h). Although a small group of vehicles such as the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 959 were faster to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h), the Yellowbird could outperform all competition when it came to top speed, topping out at 211 miles per hour (340 km/h), a top speed that made it the fastest sports car in the world at the time of its release.

The car received its nickname, "Yellowbird", during testing by Road & Track magazine, whose staffers noted the contrast created by its yellow paintwork against the overcast skies on the day of their photo shoot.

KUNOS Simulazioni would like to thank all of you for the great support you gave to Assetto Corsa: we hope you enjoy this great new car as well as we enjoyed to reproduce and include it in our game.

Our best regards

The KUNOS Simulazioni development team.

About This Game

Assetto Corsa 1.0 is out now!



Assetto Corsa 1.0 is now available for download on Steam!
Version 1.0 signifies not just the long-term achievement but also a new start. The hugely successful Early Access program is now complete thanks to the contribution of hundreds of thousands of gamers. If you have joined the Early Access program, we are pleased to announce that version 1.0 is available for you as free upgrade.

With the completion of our version 1.0 milestone, Assetto Corsa is now leaving Early Access status, and is available from Steam right now. The new version includes an extended career with fully blown championship series’, new features, improved gameplay, new sound sets and sound effects, new and improved post-processing effects as well as several optimizations, including some important refinements in the physics department, an updated tyre model and force feedback guaranteeing an even better driving experience. Assetto Corsa 1.0 introduces also the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2014 Launch Edition, available as free bonus content and the sought after Ruf Yellowbird which will be available once again as free bonus content by the end of the year; when available, the game will be updated automatically on Steam.

One journey ends, another begins ; version 1.0 by no means indicates the end Assetto Corsa development, on the contrary, this is now just the beginning of a long journey. The development team is already working on new cars, tracks, features and content that will improve the Assetto Corsa experience even more.

A great example of Early Access done right, Kunos was always communicating what they were working on and delivered updates frequently.

As for the game itself, if you want a racing simulator, Assetto Corsa is the title you want. Period. It may not have the same eye-candy as some titles, but it delivers in the physics simulation, force feedback (use of a wheel is highly recommended), and native, FOV-correct triple-monitor support.

Kunos has stated plans to continue building on AC with DLC and core updates through 2017, so even if you didn't get in on early access, there's still a great value to be had here.

I love this game.

Assetto Corsa dawns a new era of the racing simulator. Assetto Corsa is a simulator that brings the revered true-to-life racing experience to the casual gamer. This game bridges the two worlds together without losing rigidity as a racing simulator. This is a simulator that will punish you for entering a corner too fast, or giving too much gas in a corner. But at the same time it is so delightfully simplistic and intuitive that it is easily playable by almost anyone. Assetto Corsa is one of the few racing simulators that is fun, and still encourages you to make mistakes and learn from them. If you are coming from console games like Forza, or GT and are looking for something more, then this is the game for you. Assetto Corsa is truly the best racing simulator there is.

However, this game is by no means perfect. One of the biggest problems that I have for this game is the lack of awareness of speed. This leads to the driver entering the corner much too fast, and creates an inorganic driving experience. This problem is mostly notable in the interior driving view. Other reviewers have mentioned this as a flaw and it certainly is one. I found the best way to correct this is to adjust the FOV or go to either the bonnet cam or the bumper cam. If you are someone that can get used to the inside cam (where it occurs the most) then this might not be a problem for you.

The Racing game I've been searching for my whole life!

Graphics - 10/10
Sound - 9/10
Physics - 10/10
Laser scanned tracks - 10/10
Damage (Visual) - 7/10
AI - 6.5/10
Career (should be challenge mode) - 8/10
Mods - 10/10
Dev Support - 10/10
Feel like the owner of a Ferrari 458 GT2 - 10/10

With a Dev team that seems to very passionate about getting it right and loves their cars, this game is going to go along way. it's the best Racing Simulator to date, with constant updates and a modding community it will be years before this game loses it's spark.

This game is worth every penny and should be in any racers game collection!

Assetto Corsa makes Grand Turismo feel as if it is purely arcade compared to it. This game is extremely sophisticated with a myriad of optimization options, and Profesional mode in this game is how it should be played! This is the most advanced racing simulator I have ever seen and it seems as if the developers are just getting started! Anyone who is a racing sim fan will love this game but I warn those semi arcadish fans because this game is not for the weak hearted. Be prepared to spend hours upon hours attempting the races if you play it on professional mode because that is what will happen!

DISAPOITING

After a year in early access game still lacks features that any true sim should have
• No flags system
• No rolling start
• Poor pitstop system
• 5-second penalty and slowing down to 50 km/h for driving off track does no matter if you cut the corner or someone push you off the track (there is no place for this i any sim racing game)
• You can't select 1st gear before green light
• No option for weather condition
• No night racing
• Poor AI
• Broken Time Attack (game mode)
• Many bugs and performance issues (e.g mouse keep appearing on the screen while driving, some messages can lower your FPS, random hiccups)

Sure game looks great, have great physics but that’s about it. As its stands, today for version 1.0 I do NOT recommend, back to GTR2 I guess.

So finally this game came out of early access and is finished and there can't be any excuses anymore. The game didn't changed much. Kunos simulazioni are still really bad at communicating and are very arrogant banning you if you criticize the game or ask something. I'm not talking about childish comments like "your game sucks".

The game has a big potential. The physics are good. It has great force feedback. You feel the car, you feel almost everything through the wheel, the driving feel is really good.

Developers keep adding new cars and the game gets better and better in this department, but still i want to see subaru, nissan, ford, audi, peugeut, opel and many more. It‘s a racing game so we need more cars. Of course i don‘t want fake 1000+ cars like in GT series, where you get the same 50 cars in different colors which counts as different cars. But i think ~100 different cars is a must and it's going the right way. Yes there're mods, but i want professionally created cars/tracks, not by some amateurs. There's no auto updates for the mods, so if you have like 50 of them you must update them manually every time. And some mods for this game cost money. I don't approve such behavior and will not support it.

The track selection is not very good at the moment. Still there‘s no famous nurgburgring, but it is annouced as DLC. It‘s not like i‘m against DLC, but i think such track must be included in the game from the start. Especially seeing how good the game sells they should have the budget now. I think Kunos did not expect such luck. It would be cool to have some fictional tracks as well.

AI. It's bad. AI is not aware of you, they just trying to drive trough you. So racing against AI is not very fun. At least they've sorted the difficulty so it's possible to beat AI now even if you make mistakes.
Penalty system is absurd. It punishes you every time you go out of track, no matter if you cut the track or slide off the track. Where's the logic behind this? I'm already punished myself by going off the track and lost time and stupid system makes me go on 50kmh for 5 seconds and lose more time.

There‘re challenges too, but they‘re so hard that there‘s no fun playing them, it feels more like a hard work than playing a game so all the challenges are pointless. The best times should be achievable to all players (after some practice of course), even for those which are playing with keyboard/mouse or with a controller, not only for aliens. Online leaderboards should be the place where aliens rule. Oh and forget the game if you're playing with a controller. This game must be played with wheel only. If you're looking for something similar to forza or GT, know that this game is nothing like this.

Multiplayer. It's a joke. MP is boring and pointless. There's no leaderboards or player profiles, no statistics. Most of the time there're too little servers, you just can't find a game. You can join the league, but it's not fun for a casual player to compete with pros.
After releasing the full game only tools for kicking people were added. Of course now every mod can ban/kick whoever he wants or dislikes without any reason.

Community is one of the worst. AC fanboys are the worst, you can't say anything bad about AC or criticize it. The game is perfect for them.

What year is it? Almost 2015! And there's still no night racing and no weather conditions. Even GT5 has this and it's some old game made for an old console.

Graphics. The cars looks really great, but everything else is just bad. Like from 2006 but enhanced with hdr and bloom.

No leaderboards. It is really fun in raceroom experience to see the times from all over the world, find your country and try to beat the time.

There are few game modes.
Career which consists of races and time attacks, It will take some time for you to complete it and you'll try the cars.
Time attack. It's some broken game mode which makes you go slower. The slower you go in the first couple of laps the more points you get.
Drift and drag racing which i'm not interested in so i can't say anything about them.

Another small annoying things:
When in photo mode you can't hide the racing line.
Mouse pointer do not disappear while playing.
Can't pause the game and check apps.
Racing line is completely broken.

You can have some fun in career mode and in MP with friends, but besides that i can't see how this game could be fun for a non hardcore sim fan. I'm still trying to like this game. It has some really attractive things and hope Kunos will improve the experience for non hardcore sim fans.

This game is addictingly accurate. Even playing with a controller rather than a wheel you get so much feedback that driving the cars feels to natural. That's not to say easy -- some of these cars and the challenges the game gives you to complete with them will kick your ♥♥♥. But the physics make sense. You can improve your setup and driving because you'll know exactly what you did wrong and you'll feel how the setup changes impact your lap.

+Great tracks and cars already with more coming and a great modding community.

Never been into racing sims, but I can't stop playing this. Long story short -- get this game.

I like this game. Not for super cars and scanned asphalted tracks. For me it is a chance to see in the future a full rally mode looks like my favorite RBR but with a modern look and sound.

While I'd like to see more cars and tracks, which there probably will be, I still enjoy the game. This is the closest racing game to forza on PC (It's physics are more realistic but still..). There are many car tuning options like gearing,aero,tire compound,etc. There are also some great mods out for this game. All in all, I say it's worth it

Could/should have a better multiplayer implementation (and I have faith that Kunos will continue improving it), but as it stands it's the greatest racing simulator ever made. Great cars, great tracks, incredible physics and graphics. Sounds of some cars are weak but gradually getting improved with each patch. To be honest, driving it solo without sound would be a better experience than any other racing sim to date.

Having been with this from the start i have to say this game is a "Must" own for any racer, if you haven't bought it already then now is the time. Beautiful modelling and handling, coupled with modding, this game has a bright future. Still a long way from where it could be in respects to UI and Race Rules, but that will come in time.

I would like to see safety cars, flags, etc. Option for rolling starts etc. Oh and of course 24 hour racing with rain :)
