Assetto Corsa v1.7 and RED PACK available!

The new build of Assetto Corsa offers a sensible amount of updates and new features asked by the simracing community, with the aim to offer a plenty of new options and keep the good path of improvements seen until today from the very first release.

One of the most wanted updates, included in the build 1.7, is the introduction of jump starts, that allows the drivers to perform a false start resulting in diverse selectable penalties.

Tyre model improvements and v10
The new build also introduces improvements of the current v7 tyre model, with tyre temperatures being more sensitive to initial tyre pressures, improvements in the realigning force and more. Furthermore, as an additional proof of KUNOS commitment to realistic physics, we introduce the new tyre model v10 for some of the new RedPack cars. The new tyre model follows the handling philosophy of KUNOS and offers a very similar driving feel, but at the same time is a complete rewrite that permits us to validate much better our results with real life data, hence the jump from v7 to v10. All Assetto Corsa cars will be eventually updated to the new tyre model, in the following months.

Introducing brake temperatures for some of the RedPack cars.
Assetto Corsa now simulates brake temperatures. Following our tradition of step by step evolution, some cars from the RedPack have now brake temperature. In the following months, we will add more features like air ducts and pads and all Assetto Corsa cars will be updated with brake temperatures and their effects.

Power Unit.
MGU-K, MGU-H, ICE with variable Turbo, Batteries charging and energy deployment
Another KUNOS tradition is to update the physics engine with new features, every time we have a new car with very specific characteristics. RedPack includes the Ferrari F138 and SF15-T. The F138 features a typical KERS system that can be simulated very well by our existing hybrid simulation, as seen in the LaFerrari and McLaren P1. Nevertheless the F138 required a maximum energy deployment per lap feature, as well as a bypass button. Both features are now simulated in Assetto Corsa and this permitted also an update of the McLaren P1 that now includes a push to pass button.
On the other hand the SF15-T has the new power unit with a very complex ERS system. The system includes an MGU-K with specific charge and deploy energy values, various profiles of energy deployment, different levels of energy charging, active rear braking pressure, MGU-H for energy harvesting from the Turbo that can be directed to the batteries or to the MGU-K, and different ICE engine braking levels. It has been a very intense period of research and implementation but everything has been coded and simulated in Assetto Corsa and it is available through keys and driving buttons for all Assetto Corsa users to configure!

Physics features commands are now configurable on keyboard and controllers.
Relevant features like Traction Control, ABS, Turbo, MGU-K, MGU-H, Engine brake etc, can be configured on the gaming device, and on the keyboard.

AI improvements, multiplayer improvements
The update includes new artificial intelligence algorithms, improving overtaking manoeuvres; also, now AI drivers are much more variable in performance during a single lap and during a session.
New experimental multiplayer code (selectable from server manager) that greatly reduces bandwidth usage and improves quality. Fixed setups can now be saved and loaded.


More improvements in various other aspects of Assetto Corsa as for example, pitstop time requirements improvements and others, are described in the changelog.

Assetto Corsa REDPACK

KUNOS Simulazioni and 505 Games are proud to present the "RED PACK", the DLC package for ASSETTO CORSA that includes seven legendary Italian sports cars and Austria’s RedBull Ring circuit.
Since the birth of modern motorsports, Red has historically been the colour of choice for Italian Manufacturers & competitive teams. In keeping with that theme, the RED PACK includes some of the most wanted cars from the most iconic italian Factories, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati!

The CARS:
Ferrari SF-15T
Ferrari F138
Ferrari 488 GT3
Maserati 250F 6C
Maserati 250F T2 12C
Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4
Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce

The TRACK:
Spielberg REDBULL Ring Circuit

The Ferrari SF15-T is the first Ferrari GP car to debut for ASSETTO CORSA, it is the second car made by Ferrari since the reintroduction of turbo engines in 2014. The red single seater has been reproduced in cooperation with Ferrari.
The Ferrari F138 (originally known as the Ferrari F2013, and sometimes referred to by its project number, the Ferrari 664) is a Formula One racing car designed and built by Scuderia Ferrari for use in the 2013 Formula One season. It was driven by two-times World Champion Fernando Alonso and his team-mate Felipe Massa. The chassis was named F138 to represent the year that it would be raced in, 2013, and to mark the final season that Formula One would use V8 engines.
The Maserati 250F took part of Formula One racing between January 1954 and November 1960, when rules allowed 2.5 liter unsupercharged or 750 cc supercharged engines.
Maserati went with the former, chosing a straight six aspirated engine configuration; in 1956 it mounted a V12 engine.
With a quite roomy cockpit, Maserati 250F featured a 4 gears transmission (plus reverse) and Continental fashion pedals arrangement: clutch, throttle and brake in this order.
The Ferrari 488 GT3 is the the racing version of the latest 488 GTB, presented at the Ferrari Finali Mondiali, as replacement for the 458 Italia.This car features large side intakes to provide a better air flow to its twin-turbocharged 3.9-liter V8.
With increased power, lower weight, improved aerodynamics and innovative technologies the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce is the most pure incarnation of a Lamborghini to date: unmistakable Lamborghini super sports car DNA, dynamic superiority and exceptional driving precision.
A focus on weight reduction while incorporating innovative technologies has resulted in the most sports-oriented, fastest and most emotional series production Lamborghini ever. The weight has been further reduced by 50 kg through enhanced lightweight engineering including significant use of carbon fiber. The naturally aspirated V12 engine's power is increased to 750 hp. This results in a power-to-weight-ratio of 2,03 kg/hp. The Superveloce accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and powers on to reach a top speed of more than 350 km/h.
After the experience with Trofeo Series, Maserati is ready to push the GranTurismo MCs into a new challenge: the international GT4 series.
The modifications needed for GT4 homologation mainly concern the engine and aerodynamics. The car's overall technical make-up will be unchanged: the 4700cc engine, electro-actuated transmission with paddle-shift commands and a kerb weight of 1410 kg will stay. The fitting of an air scoop will reduce the car's power output to 430 bhp from its current 488 bhp while a newly-designed rear spoiler and modified diffuser will bring the car's performance into line with that of the other GT4 cars.
The RedBull Ring has been reproduced for Assetto Corsa to the highest level of detail through the use of laserscan technology.


The Circuit of RedBull Ring
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 Spielberg has been digitally recreated using Laser Scanning Technology. 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.

I normally dont really bother with reviews and stuff, but this game deserves one. I have been playing racing sim games since first gran turismo on ps one, also very first F1 games on very first PCs and rally as well! I have played with some of the best wheels you can get and I have played with keyboard and gamepad as well, so I have been around for some time to try it all and play pretty much every racing/rally sim there is, so I will tell you that this game is breathtaking and it is only getting better and better, I own this game from very early access when it wasnt so great but I knew that they will nail it. And they did just that! The attention to detail on each car is immaculate! The physics are incredible! Sound is stunning! Graphics are beautiful! So far a king of racing sim and a real driving simulator!

The only "game" i've ever asked for a refund on Steam, this thing needs to be advertised as a physics sim and not as a game, whoever designed the UI has zero idea about designing an interface for a videogame, the people who made AC seems to be pretty strange to videogames, let alone racing videogames, nothing on the menu is where it should be and you can't use a gamepad on the settings, menu or start screen, it forces you to use mouse and keyboard like this was 1997, the software also performs like crap giving no more than 30 fps on a machine that can easily max actual racing games like project cars at silky smooth 60 FPS.

This thing is not a game it's more like a software to test and tune expensive PC racing wheels, if you want an intuitive racing game, got project cars or wait for forza to be released on PC.

I love this game/simulator! Granted the vehicle selection isn't very wide, but it has plenty of potential. I DO NOT recommend using a controller because callibrating anything other than an XBox 360 is a pain. I don't have a wheel, so I can't comment if it makes the experience any more realistic. The keyboard controls were surprisingly easy to get used to, however, as I was expecting the cars to behave so smoothly; yet they had their distinct behavorial attributes like in real life! Definitely a great buy!

Let me start by saying im a HUGE racing fan. I have been hooked on racing sims since Forza 3 and Forza has been my go to racing sim even though my main console is PS4. At first I was worried about buying AC because I wasn't a fan of Project Cars and I put this in the same category. I was not very smart to do so because this is by far the BEST racing sim I have ever played. I recently re-purchased a racing wheel because I was enjoying it with the Xbox One controller and wanted a more realistic experience. After I got my wheel I went back to give Forza 6 a try again after sinking many many hours into it with a controller but after playing Assetto Corsa there was no way I could go back! The handling model feels great with a controller but 100x better with a wheel. Every single car feels diffrent and tracks are very accurate to the real thing. This is a must buy for racing fans and my new go to racing game.

This has to be the greatest racing sim out there, it has great psychics, pretty good graphics, and a ton of cars and tracks. I highly recommend it, but only if you have a racing wheel.

I bought the game when it was in Alpha, played it with my Xbox controller and was mildy enthousiastic. Now i'm in possesion of the G920 wheel and even prefer this game above Project Cars! The grip and drift limits are awesome, they allow modding (from wich i conclude they are not money grabbers!) and yes, i have the game complete now, bought all the DLC (and that says something)... MUST HAVE for racing/drifting lovers!

- Took the missus on a very expensive holiday.
- Came home poor and bored.
- Told myself I couldn't afford AC + DLC.
- Bought AC and DLC (because Nordschleife and Nissan GTR).
- Used my XB1 controller because I don't have a wheel.
- Couldn't do the game justice without a wheel.
- Looked at wheel reviews.
- Told myself I can't afford a wheel.
- Missus told me I can't afford a wheel.
- Bought a wheel.
- Profit.

11/10 would be poor again

DISCLAMER! This review is based on my experience using a Xbox controller. (63 hours so far)
  • Graphics (car): Very detailed.
  • Graphics (environment): Not great but passable and enjoyable.
  • Performance: Runs great on i7 4790k + 970 (80FPS+ on high setting)
  • Sound: Let this speak for itself (youtube)
  • Force feedback (controller): Even with a controller I have sense of control on how my car behaves on the road.
  • "Damage": The physics isn't great when you bump into things it feels like playing bumper cars. (youtube) and the car damage are mostly scratches.
  • Single player + AI: Single player is great and with many challenging modes. However, when you are racing against AI they will pretend not to see you and hit you.
  • Multiplayer: The community is awesome. Everyone wants to race but every now and then someone will try to ram you on purpose.
  • Multiplayer (server browser/host): Easy to host but no steam integration. Expect a lot of EU servers.
  • DLC: Might seem overpriced at first but completely worth. Tons of high quality cars and tracks.
Overall, great sandbox racing simulator.

Best simulator I have played to date and looks great at 4k resolution with max settings.

The physics are fantastic, providing a genuine feel through the FFB that you're driving and have control. You can feel every little bump in the track and exactly what the car is doing or about to do. The career mode is somewhat basic but very enjoyable and a good introduction to each car class & track. Drifting is really fun/challenging and can feel really rewarding when you put an awesome run together. I could praise every little detail of this simulator but I would bore you silly - so just buy it already!

After spending 150 hours in Project Cars, I decided to buy this.. so this is more of a comparison than a review.. or both?

The first thing I noticed was how much different the FFB feels. It's difficult to explain, but I'll try. It feels much closer to driving a real car. There's a wider "soft zone" than in PCars, as PCars tends to feel fairly stiff even with the smallest movements. You can turn down FFB strength on PCars to compensate, but this makes some of the more dramatic turns feel "off" or too weak. Assetto Corsa gives a more balanced and dynamic feeling throughout the various turn radiuses. You also feel everything on the road to the slightest detail and the laser scanned tracks add even more detail to this. (Also the grass actually feels like grass, sand like sand, and your car slides appropriately! In PCars the grass is like quick sand.) Overall, it just feels right.

The car handling and physics also feel more akin to a real vehicle. Because of this, I found the driving more intuitive and found myself making more consistent laps. Overall, the game feels much more stable as well. I haven't encountered any bugs and even in VR it runs silky smooth. PCars can be pretty glitchy and unreliable, both in the physics and sound.. making it pretty frustrating sometimes.

Drifting of course is far better in Assetto Corsa, (not even comparable, honestly) which is what I'm going to spend most of my time doing personally. Overall, I don't really see much point of going back and playing PCars other than to play with a friend who doesn't own this game.

My only gripe is that I can't tune my vehicles to the precision I'd like, this may be a misunderstanding on my part because I've seen videos of people tuning (for example) their toe out to 1. (Maybe an update took this out?) I can only do increments of 5 or 10 with the same vehicle. If there's a way to choose any number, please let me know.

absolute perfection
this is pretty much prefect 1:1 visually to real life, but I mostly focus on drifting and touge
this game is the main reason i purchased a G27
and i can never go back to controller for racing
it is playable with anything that you have, i had no problems setting up various controllers.
my only complaint is the lack of american servers, or just american players in general. but i know we are a small community as it is.
highly recommended, the visuals alone make this game flawless in my eyes

The sim of all sim racers.

If you're looking for an arcade racer or even something more along the lines of Gran Turismo, you might want to look elsewhere.

But if you like the idea of trying to race beautiful, powerful sportscars on real life tracks...this is the game for you.

Im a pretty keen sim racer, I have a dedicated setup on an obutto with Thrustmaster T500rs, modded pedals, H shifter, sim vibe, triples and recently a Rift CV1. I have been league racing for a few years in games like rfactor2, Assetto Corsa and iRacing.

Assetto Corsa is a fun game and if i could make the choice again i would still buy it. But for me it had become somewhat of a hot lap simulator to do a few laps in every now and then. Its a pretty game, it works well with simvibe but the multiplayer matching was crap and the single player events were a bit rubbish as well.

In Comparison:

* Assetto wins the gfx competition hands down (until you consider the rift implementation).

* The rift implementation in iRacing is much better due to what i believe is the pixel density improving the horrid jaggies. RF2 will never support the rift so although i have loved it dearly its now dead to me.

* The mulitplayer implementation of iRacing cant be beaten, its head and shoulders above any other racing game and this is where replayability is born

* Physics can be a bit subjective without actually being on the Dev staff of each company but i feel that iRacing and RFactor2 have the slight upper hand. The fact that real GT3 racers use their real life car setups in iRacing says a lot about just how realistic it is.

* League racing iRacing and RFactor2 are better by far, in many respects Assetto feels incomplete in comparison

* Content.. I dont care for road cars, I like to race in race cars so a lot of whats in Assetto has low appeal for me

* Straight up single player fun.. DiRT Rally is the winner of this category for me

Summary:

If Assetto had a strong multiplayer system including ranking that was even half as good as iRacing and a better menu system + rift implementation it would probably be my goto sim racing game. But as it stands its near the bottom of the pile, one rung up from RF2 but only since RF2 is rift-less

Asseto Corsa gives an authentic driving experience, the feel of the ffb and physics are perfect, easy to drive slow but fun, hard to be consistently quick and win online races. Single player could use some improvements, but all aspects considered I don't want to drive anything else (apart from Dirt). I have a few driving sims on my PC but this is the one I play by default. 10/10
