Assetto Corsa Competizione will leave Steam Early Access in under seven weeks’ time, when the PC racing sim is given a full release on 29th May.
Following an eight-month development cycle while in Early Access, Assetto Corsa Competizione will launch to the public with a broad spread of licensed Blancpain GT Series content. All of the cars, teams, drivers and circuits from the 2018 season will be included in Assetto Corsa Competizione, and the sim is set to receive the full 2019 line-up later this year.
Developer Kunos Simulazioni says its latest title will also simulate time-of-day and dynamic weather changes, which will likely amplify the immersion of the game’s longer Endurance and the 24 Hours of Spa races that are represented in the game.
Making the experience even more immersive, Kunos states players will be able to manage a myriad elements when they’re out on the track, ranging from altering throttle mapping and the brake balance, to adjust the traction control and manually operating windscreen wipers.
When it goes on sale on the Steam store next month, Assetto Corsa Competizione will remain at its current Early Access price – meaning the full game will set buyers back £34.99 or your regional equivalent. Anyone who buys the game now while it’s still in Early Access will automatically upgrade to the full game when it launches on 29th May.
Additionally, Assetto Corsa Competizione’s public launch roughly coincides with the second round of the Blancpain GT-derived SRO E-Sports GT Series competition, which will be held from 31st May to 1st June at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France.
