After a string of early access updates, Assetto Corsa Competizione, the Official Blancpain GT Series game, has now officially launched on Steam.
The racing sim comes complete with 51 teams, 280 selectable drivers and 14 manufacturers. Utilising the Unreal Engine 4, Assetto Corsa Competizione raises the benchmark for other racing sims to follow boasting variable weather conditions as well as night racing.
Virtual racers will experience the Blancpain GT Series from behind the wheel of several GT racing cars from the likes of household names such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin to name a few.

“Never take anything for granted, even if you have the Assetto Corsa experience behind you! Assetto Corsa Competizione has been completely rebuilt from scratch, not only to best harness and adapt to the Unreal Engine 4 capabilities, but also to define a new standard in terms of realism and car handling”, said Marco Massarutto, Co-founder and Brand & Product Manager of Kunos Simulazioni.
“The opportunity of working with SRO GT Series has allowed us to furtherly extend our know-how and our specialization in responding to players’ needs, as well as those of real drivers. Reaching the finish line was not easy, but it certainly was exciting and satisfying, also thanks to the support of our incredible community, which once again understood and grasped the spirit and value of the Early Access program at its best. But our challenge is yet to be finished: even after the release of version 1.0, we will continue to work on expanding and improving Assetto Corsa Competizione to the best of our abilities”
Assetto Corsa Competizione is available now on Steam with a price point of £31.49.
