Japanese Car Pack, Red Pack, and More Included With Assetto Corsa’s Season Pass


With Assetto Corsa’s European release just hours away, and some lucky few already grabbing a hold of copies being sold ahead of time, console racers are finally going to have the opportunity to experience what all of the chatter has been about.

Ahead of tomorrow’s official release, GTPlanet users LEGLESS77 and Donnced has taken notice of a Season Pass for the game. While previously confirmed for the upcoming Porsche Pack, offering a discount on the combined total of the three car packs, it has been expanded for the Xbox One and PS4.

The expanded Pass is set to include the Japanese Car Pack, Red Pack, and the aforementioned Porsche DLC – totaling over 30 additional rides. Additionally, the Season Pass will also include the Red Bull Ring that accompanied the Red Pack, and an exclusive livery and theme.

Conversely, the fictional Black Cat County track, introduced in Bonus Pack 2 earlier this year, and the Showrooms feature won’t be available at launch due to time constraints. The good news is both features, in addition to the Maserati Levante S pictured above will be introduced to the game in a free update, as detailed by Marco Massarutto.

While we here at GTPlanet have already begun getting our feet wet with our own pre-release activity, it will be interesting to monitor how the game is received over the coming days and weeks.

Assetto Corsa releases tomorrow, August 26th in Europe, and August 30th in North America.

    Well would you just look at that, a fan asks a question about missing features, and they get an straight answer, from the developer…

    How very unusual. It’s surprising being such a small team they have time to engage with their fans, and yet they still put the effort in to make developer diaries and interact on social media.

    I sincerely hope the game does well for all at Kunos

    Thanks first at all for the mention @Michael Leary

    Now the season pass is available on the European store priced at 29’99€, there’s also the performance pack with the 3 free cars from the standard preorder.
    Prestige car pack for the moment is only available for those that buyed the prestige edition with the DLC code.

    I may do the season pass just to support these guys even though I’ll probably only ever drive a few of the JP cars and the Porsche stuff.

    The bigger issue I’m facing is: when will I get time to play? At the rate I’m going I’ll have 3 or 4 hours into AC by the time GT Sport finally ships…

      If you start getting comfortable with Assetto Corsa, I can’t see why you would want to abandon it for Gran Turismo Sport, but that’s just me… Play them both? Ok. I get it. But totally give up on AC for GTS? That, I don’t get. To each his own…

    2. Fredzy

      I guess it depends, but I hope to play both. I expect GTS to have a good matchmaking system, but even if it’s about as good as GT6’s quick match system I’ll be happy. The virtue of this kind of system is that I can sit down and spend most of my time racing and enjoying myself rather than tinkering with car settings and such. I’m not sure what AC’s online is like but if it’s just open lobby type stuff, or overly hardcore I won’t be playing it after GTS comes out.

    1. Michael Leary

      Indeed. I’ve removed the line altogether to avoid confusing you guys and myself, as I’ve already done the latter.

    To be clear, I am extremely excited to get my copy of AC. However, the price of this is, I feel, too high. It may constitute a savings versus buying the packs individually, but this will remain beyond my reach for some time.

      I always find it baffling that people have issues over the price of theses games/sims.

      For arguments sake, let’s just say it’s $70-$80 Dollars…. I dont know about you, but there’s NOTHING in this world that could keep me entertained, educate me, and allow me to socialize for hundreds of hours for only that much money.

      All in all, I believe video games, especially the ones like AC, i-racing, P-Cars, GT, R-Factors, Reiza, FSX, Raceroom etc etc. are extremely cheap relatively speaking.

      If you were to take out your wife and 2 of your kids to the movies, you’d end up spending just as much, if not more on any given night.

      Now, having to fork over $5-600 Bucks on a new wheel when you already have a G27, THAT hurts my anus :-)

    2. GrumpyGrumps

      I understand your point, but my original issue is largely nullified by the price clarification above. At $35 (US) this is much more reasonable in terms of value. To your point about value I agree, but in my life to spend hundreds of hours playing AC would take me quite a while at 20-30 minutes per week, which is my current rate of play. Again though, I understand your point.

      If the DLC was $45 (US) when the game itself is $50 (US), then we are talking an additional 90% in cost, which is higher than I had expected, that is all.

      If the game turns out to be what we are all hoping for, then the DLC will be purchased to both enjoy the game more fully and support the developers.

      Of note, if my family and I go to a movies then we are spending time together, which increases the value of that time immeasurably, and quite a long ways beyond me playing video games by myself.


    3. LEGLESS77

      Based off what other season passes with the same price in the Australian PSN store go for in the US PSN store it’s fairly safe to say that the season pass for AC will be $29.99 USD.
