With Assetto Corsa only a few dozen hours away from release in Europe (North Americans have to wait until next Tuesday), we’ve got our hands on a pre-release copy. While we can’t share everything with you quite yet, what we do have is a two-lap attack on Brands Hatch in the Mercedes-AMG GT3.
The video was taken using the PlayStation 4 copy of the game. For better or worse, it’s also recorded using a standard DualShock 4 controller. We’ve got a compatible wheel en route to give the game a thorough drive, and we’re sure members of our community will chime in with their thoughts involving dedicated rig setups as the game finds its way into their hands.
On the plus side, this offers a better look at how the game will play for those without a wheel and pedal set. Early signs point to the PS4 version of the game staying true to Kunos’ promise of parity between accessories, as shown in this video.
As you’d expect of a modern race car, the AMG GT3 feels planted around corners. It also sounds fantastic, largely thanks to the race car retaining the naturally-aspirated 6.2L V8 from the previous SLS instead of using the road car’s 4.0L turbo V8. Check it out up top.
