Kunos Simulazioni has published their official development roadmap and early access release schedule for their new title, Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Early access begins on September 12, for €24.99 on Steam. That’s pretty cheap, though the initial build will only include the Lamborghini Huracan GT3, the Nurburgring GP circuit, and a few basic game modes like “Special Events”, “Hotlap”, and “Quick Race” against AI players.
The real value comes over the long term, however, as the early access pricing offers an effective 45% discount on the final price of the game which will contain a lot more content.
Fortunately, Kunos has provided the game’s complete content roadmap through Q1 2019, so you can see exactly what you’ll get and when:

As you can see, the early access program basically consists of a new car, a new track, and some additional features every month through February. The big news, of course, is that the entire 2019 Blancpain season will be provided in an update later next summer.
For now, of course, the game will only be available on PC via Steam. We have heard Assetto Corsa Competizione could be coming to consoles, but it might not be on the current generation of hardware. So, if you’re seriously interested in the game and have a PC to support it, go ahead and buy early access before the price starts to increase on November 14. You can find it on Steam right here.
Stay tuned for more coverage of Competizione as we get closer to its release.
