The much-anticipated Assetto Corsa Dream Pack DLC now has a release date set for March 11th, as Kunos Simulazioni confirm that players can now preorder the pack.
Preordering the Dream Pack DLC from its Steam page will also grant you a 33% discount, with a reduced retail price of £7.33 instead of £10.99.
Ten drool-worthy cars are available in the pack. Being Italian, it's not surprising to find that three of the ten cars are Alfa Romeos, but the chosen makes and models were all voted by fans.
- Alfa Romeo GTA
- Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI
- Alfa Romeo 4C
- BMW M235i Racing
- Corvette C7.r GTE
- McLaren F1 GTR
- McLaren P1
- Mercedes-Benz Sauber C9
- Mercedes-Benz 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II DTM
- NISSAN GT-R NISMO GT3 2014
The monumental pack will also contain the fully laser-scanned Nürburgring Nordschleife in three varients: Nurburgring-Nordschleife, Touristenfahrten and Endurance.
The Touristenfahrten mode is particularly interesting, as it simulates the public trackday events held on the circuit, so you'll have to abide by the trackday rules and even start and finish in the car park – just as you would in real life if you were let loose on a trackday around the Green Hell. Touristenfahrten can be played in practice and multiplayer modes, and records lap times from the first lap under the bridge until the structure at the start of the long straight of “döttinger höhe” for added authenticity.
Two years in the making, Assetto Corsa's fully laser-scanned Nürburgring promises to be the most authentic recreation of the Green Hell in a racing simulation yet.
You can see all ten cars included in the DLC pack in action on the Nürburgring in this rousing release trailer below that ticks all the cinematic boxes. My spine is still tingling. Take note Milestone: this is how you produce an effective trailer.
