Kunos Simulazioni has taken the wraps off the first bit of post-launch content for its current sim racer, Assetto Corsa Competizione.
ACC moved out of Early Access back in May 2019. As the official title of the Blancpain GT series, Competizione features the full 2018 lineup of GT3-spec cars, drivers, and circuits. Previously, Kunos has confirmed that the 2019 lineup of cars and drivers would arrive as a free update to all players. However now we know there will be at least four new tracks, one of which should be familiar to players of the original Assetto Corsa.
In an announcement at the Tokyo Game Show, Kunos’ Marco Massarutto confirmed the Intercontinental GT Pack. According to the co-founder, it will contain Laguna Seca, Suzuka, Mount Panorama, and Kyalami circuits.
The returning location in the lineup is (WeatherTech Raceway, formerly Mazda Raceway) Laguna Seca. It arrived for free near the end of AC’s life, so players will surely be happy that it returns here. A trio of tracks join it, all making their series debuts, and all laser-scanned. In fact, Kunos points out that this will be the first time the legendary Kyalami circuit gets the hyper-accurate treatment. The dynamic time and weather in ACC should provide more of a challenge at these tracks.
There’s no word yet on when players can expect the new content, or what sort of price it will require. Before that, ACC players can expect the 2019 season update, which in addition to new cars/teams will introduce Zandvoort. That free update will arrive this autumn.
When we got our hands on AC Competizione v1.0 in June, we called it a “laser-focused yet fun sim.” Are you looking forward to the new content? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned for more details on the Intercontinental GT pack as we get them.
