The all-important release date of Assetto Corsa is said to be coming soon, but as we continue to wait patiently Kunos Simulazioni continue to tease us with cruelly brief snippets of off-screen video footage showing the game in action.
This latest gameplay sample is taken from a replay showing a McLaren MP4-12C GT3 tearing round what is our first glimpse of Silverstone in Assetto Corsa – a topical location thanks to the GT Academy 2013 demo.
So we thought we'd do a little comparison. But rather than spark the traditional fanboy war between Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport, we thought we would conduct our comparison between GT and its promising PC equivilant.
The results speak for themselves, frankly. GT is often criticised for its lackluster sound effects, and the difference in realism is abundantly apparent even from an off-screen video.
It also highlights the visual differences between the pair, though it's perhaps unfair to compare a game designed to run on top spec PCs to a game running on 6 year old hardware.
Factor in the fact that Assetto Corsa will be fully moddable, and the potential for the underdog to prevail is huge.
