It's official, everyone: the Assetto Corsa pre-order books will open sometime before September draws to a close.
In a subtle announcement on Twitter, in response to a user enquiring about the pre-orders, Stefano Casillo (the head of AC developer Kunos Simulazioni) confirmed it will be possible to order the much-anticipated PC sim later this month, though Signor Casillo didn't state any precise dates.
As revealed earlier this year, pre-ordering won't just guarantee a copy of the title on launch day, but it also bundles in the first DLC pack – including Spa-Franchorchamps and "some car models" – at no additional cost. The pack should be available between six to eight weeks after Assetto Corsa's eventual release date.
Hopefully this means Assetto Corsa will be retail-ready in the short term, so do keep checking back to the Team VVV website for future announcements on Kunos' eagerly awaited sim, along with all the latest racing game news.
