The wait is finally over for Assetto Corsa Competizione fans. The game’s Intercontinental GT Pack, bringing cars and tracks from the 2019 season of the championship, is now with us.
Officially known as the Intercontinental GT Challenge by Pirelli, the series takes in five venues on — appropriately enough for the name — five continents. The season’s opening event is the Bathurst 12hr, which this year took place this past weekend, but after Australia the racing moves to the Americas, Europe, Asia and, at the end of the year, Africa.
For 2019 the series visited Laguna Seca in the USA, Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Suzuka in Japan, and South Africa’s Kyalami. With Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps already featuring in the base game, the Intercontinental GT pack brings the four absentees to complete the set:
- Mount Panorama Circuit (New South Wales, Australia)
- Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca (United States, North America)
- Suzuka Circuit (Japan, Asia)
- Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit (South Africa, Africa)
Each circuit is, of course, laser-scanned for its reproduction in ACC, as you will have seen in the previews over the last few weeks.
In addition to the four circuits, the DLC pack brings car liveries, teams, and drivers, to simulate the 2019 IGTC season. That covers 45 new car liveries from 30 teams, with 50 new drivers. There’s also new game modes, including IGTC Race Weekend Modes from 8-12 hours, to complement the new content, allowing players to recreate the championship’s races.
The Intercontinental GT Pack DLC is available from today, February 4, and comes in at $14.99 (€14.99/£12.49). You can watch a full preview of the pack below:
Along with the DLC, there’s also an update to ACC for all players today. Version 1.3 has the usual laundry list of changes, however key features include fixes for some of the flags and penalties, new presets for some of the cars, and changes to some of the multiplayer mode settings. You can find a full change log in our forums.
