Assetto Corsa Ferrari 458 GT2 gameplay video emerges

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:

  • Intel Quad Core
  • 4 GB Ram
  • GeForce GTX 560
  • Ingame graphics detail level: mid-high (1920×1080, Anisotropic filtering 8, 4xAA, 4xFXAA, car reflections: mid, shadow map: high, faces per frame: 4, 3x motion blur)

Discuss this and more in our Assetto Corsa forum thread.

Its a shame that they're shutting down but it should mean that Raceroom improves as in my opinion its lagging behind the other main sims (surely this must be the main cause for their bankruptcy?) The game has potential and an acceptable amount of content to buy, however I think the prices for individual cars and tracks is a little steep considering the quality of them compared to Assetto Corsa...

Always feel these sorts of packs are all very,,,meh. But how you can include a Merc in a "Best of British" baffles me, regardless of where it was built.  Surely there are better example of British sportscars from the past that can be used?  Anyway, microtransactions are the way forward and I like DLC but throw in a track or something, no?

...and less shiny graphics. Not everything in real life looks brand new all the time.
