Assetto Corsa Competizione Now Out On PC In Early Access

One car, one track, but it's cheaper if you buy it now

Assetto Corsa Competizione is the new game from Assetto Corsa developers Kunos Simulazioni. This entry for the racing sim is all focused on GT3 cars and has partnered with the Blancpain GT Series as its official game. Competizione also marks a change of engine, now powered by Unreal 4, and will add day-and-night cycles as well as a proper multiplayer suite that judges players driving ability and on-track behaviour.

The game is out now on PC in Early Access. By early, they do mean early. The current game right now only offer one playable car, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 and the Nurburgring GT circuit is available. There are special events, hotlap and quick race modes against AI (using other cars) as of right now.

However, Kunos has outlined a roadmap on when to expect new content to arrive as the game continues to be in Early Access. There will be at least 6 updates, each bringing a new car, a new circuit and improvements to the multiplayer rating system. Here’s the roadmap, which can be found here:

The full game, slated for Q1 2019, will include all the cars, teams and tracks from the 2018 Blancpain GT Series. Given that the game will be out after the 2018 season closes, the cars, teams and tracks for the 2019 season will also be added as a free update More modes including Career and Championship will be added as well.

Right now, the Release 1 is out on Steam for RM44. Yes, you only have one car and one circuit but the price will rise up as the game gets closer to the full release. If you are already sold on Assetto Corsa Competizione you should get it now, but it’s totally fine if you prefer to wait and see.
