Assetto Corsa Competizione’s GT2 Pack DLC Lands on Consoles February 27

Barely a month after Assetto Corsa Competizione’s GT2 Pack DLC landed on the PC version of the game, Gen 9 console players will be able to get hold of it too as it becomes available February 27.

It’s one of the most rapid turnarounds for content made available in the PC version to come to the console ports that we’ve seen in ACC to date. We’ve previously seen console players waiting no less than two to three months and sometimes as much as nine for content that PC players have been able to enjoy.

The GT2 Pack consists of one circuit and six cars from, unsurprisingly, the GT2 category. While you may expect this to be one class higher than GT3, in reality it’s between GT3 and GT4 and generally runs as a support series to other events, such as the GT World Challenge and ADAC GT Masters.

That said, the cars do have more power than GT3 vehicles — as much as 700hp — but there’s decreased downforce to make the cars less reliant on aerodynamics and easier to drive. It’s also a gentleman driver class, originally for drivers aged over 40 — which has included SRO’s president Stephane Ratel, and Fanatec CEO Thomas Jackermeier.

A total of seven cars are homologated for the category, largely comprising supercars and track-day specials. You may spot that this is one more car than the pack offers, but a recent change in licensing for the Brabham name has meant that the brand’s BT63 isn’t available.

However the other six vehicles are all present and correct. You’ll be able to drive the Audi R8 LMS GT2, KTM X-Bow GT2, Maserati MC20 GT2, Mercedes-AMG GT2, Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport Evo, and the 2019 Porsche 935 if you pick up the pack.

The pack also contains an add-on track and you might be surprised to learn that it’s the Red Bull Ring. Unexpectedly, given its appearance in practically every other title, the circuit isn’t actually in the game already: it doesn’t host any other SRO events so hasn’t been eligible for inclusion. For that matter it’s not even on the Fanatec GT2 European Series calendar this year either, but did host rounds in 2022 and 2023.

At the moment we don’t have a price for the GT2 Pack DLC, but we’re expecting it to be similar to the $/€17.99 cost on Steam. It should be added to the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store soon, ahead of the release on Tuesday February 27.
