    Does this game have road cars or is it 100% race focused?

    100% race cars. Theres still a good variety though and they've snuck in a Huracan Super Teofeo (not the evo version unfortunatly) and 911 GT3 Cup so it's not just GT3 cars (plus the upcoming GT4 pack).

    I want to get this game when it comes out, but with only one car class is does seem like it may get a bit boring after a short while.

    How many tracks does it have?

    It's getting GT3 and GT4?
    I am just considering it more like an F1 or rally game rather than the original AC or GTS.
    I like the focus - personally would like it to include the N24h track as per VLN, and GTE cars as an expansion, tho it won't happen and I'll still buy it.

    I would love the team to work their magic on other genres afterwards again in specific packages. Can you imagine how good Kunos could make a classic le mans, vintage F1 or old school touring cars game?

    I can't find it on the PSN store to buy yet : / But I'm glad I decided not to drop serious cash on a gaming pc, whew!

    With the current state of sport mode, I’ve been thinking about a PC lately too.

    Oh ok, tell me more

    And I'm sorry you feel that way

    Would you like me to post a vid of me in settings and you can actually look at the fps in the top left corner this time?

    @westblade85 ok bye

    I never cared too much for ACC as I find GT3 quite boring, but this was a nice surprise and I'm actually excited about it now.
    Also, it will be the perfect excuse to give my rig some much needed use once again.

    And, of course, coming from Kunos, this will definitely be a day one buy from me.

    Good news for console peeps. GT3 isn't even my favourite car class but the driving in ACC is just so sublime I can drive for laps and laps and only stop when the fuel tank is empty :lol: You'll finally understand what we mean when we say "GTS is good but still far from realistic". On that note, once you try driving in ACC it'll completely ruin Gr.3 cars in GTS for you so beware ;)

    Now, the 2 problems I can see are controller support and graphics optimization. Yes, ACC is best enjoyed with a wheel but let's face it, the majority of console players aren't going to have one. A lot of people are going to be turned off by the difficulty curve if controller implementation isn't calibrated properly. Graphics on even some high end PCs it's a struggle to run the game at decent settings. Admittedly I'm not a graphics buff and I'm more than happy playing at Low settings on my potato laptop, but not everyone feels that way. I can see standard PS4 players getting lots of slowdowns in full grid races with rain and time progression unless Kunos can magically optimise it for consoles.

    LOL, just like i said, not running the game on "Epic" settings. Thanks for your confirmation and you pulled a nice self-humiliation as a bonus...:gtpflag:

    They're 3 :D

    The 2 RJN GT-R (2015 & 2018 spec, not the same car) and the Emil RC-F from the 2018 Blancpain GT Series.

    Not a GT3 fan but this news is great and I surely will be buying it since the original AC is still a blast on my base PS4. The driving is simply sensational.

    Okay, i'll keep it brief.

    "Epic" is literally a preset in ACC:
    EPIC.jpg

    So, you just chose that preset, and turned down/disabled various settings way below "Epic" settings.

    Funfact: It seems to be a common misconception for casuals and/or console gamers that tons of PC games runing at "Ultra" (or in case ACC's case "Epics) equals maxed out.
    Nope.

    For example what i'd call a maxed out ACC is something like this:
    000.jpg 001.jpg 002.jpg

    Enough, 'k?

    Great news! Why wouldn't Kunos just add all road cars into ACC?

    With Gt3c Gt4 and TCR race classes ACC would be epic. I don’t need more :D

    Great news but I have a hard time being optimistic about the base console’s performance.

    They better drop the LoD and resolution as I couldn’t care less about another 35-55fps slide show.

    The addition of additional SRO classes also opens the door to TCA (Plus GT2 if that actually catches on), which has some fun possibilities as well.



    They could actually have a decent ladder based career mode just using the SRO stuff.

    Wheel market on consoles doubles for the past 5 years, so it's not that bad platform for sims nowadays.

    Tell me about it. I nearly cried(I didn't, I'm a grownass man!) when I saw this.


    PC players are lucky. Anyway, hope Kunos can make this happen for us console players.
