Kunos Simulazione continue to tease us about the forthcoming Assetto Corsa with yet another tantalising gameplay video morsel, this time featuring a Ferrari 458 GT2 racing round Autodromo di Monza. Please Kunos: put us out of our misery and just tell us the release date already!
As with the majority of developer videos released so far, the video is sourced off-screen having been personally recorded with an iPad by one of the developers, and is therefore not representative of the final quality of Assetto Corsa. Official promotional teaser and gameplay videos are said to be incoming, however, which should finally do the game justice and give us a more accurate representation of the final quality we can expect.
It's also worth noting that the gameplay video is very much a work in progress representation of Assetto Corsa. As such, the driving instruments and driver animations are not yet finished as work continues modelling the immaculate interiors. Having said that, what is on show looks immensely promising, from the high fidelity graphics and physics to the tremendous sense of speed evoked from the subtle shaking cockpit camera.
The footage is said to have been recorded using the following hardware specifications:
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.
Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.
Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
