The latest Assetto Corsa Competizione update brings in the prancing horse

The Ferrari 488 GT3 is introduced into the ACC Early Access program, along with the Hungaroring circuit.

The fourth Early Access update of Assetto Corsa Competizione, which is going to be released today, includes the highly awaited Ferrari 488 GT3, one of the protagonists of the whole Blancpain GT Series championship. The famous Ferrari racing car joins the other GT3 models of BMW M6, Bentley Continental and Lamborghini Huracàn. The Hungaroring circuit is also introduced in the update, for the first time in its history brought to the general public using the Laserscan® technology - usually offered by professional driving simulators.

Gameplay additions

The new build of Assetto Corsa Competizione is not limited to new content, but offers specific gameplay additions to enhance the level of realism, such as the custom, Sprint and Endurance races, now available also for the multiplayer, allowing players to challenge each other in a full racing weekend, with free practice and qualifications.

  • The custom racing weekend includes a standard racing scenario for those willing to compete using classic settings: free practice, qualification, race.
  • The Endurance and Sprint modes realistically recreate the Blancpain GT Series ruling, defining the qualification and racing slots for each driver involved in the race.

Broadcasting Mode

Build 0.4 of Assetto Corsa Competizione introduces a first version of the Broadcasting Mode SDK - to the delight of the modding fans which made the original Assetto Corsa even more popular. A new application in the installation folder of the game will allow Steam users to share in streaming and comment the multiplayer races of Assetto Corsa Competizione. Thanks to this new Open Source app, users gain access to a real control room (with camera-swap commands, interactive cams and additional options for editors and commentators) - which will progressively expand thanks to the most talented modders.
