    Now if the game is the official Blancpain GT series should this mean that Kunos has the exclusive rights similar to Sector 3 Studios rights to DTM?
    That would create problems to other developers.

    I hate GT3 cars as well, but can't really blame them for going with that.

    Hope they have a lot of success with this and that it helps making AC2 a better game.





    Night and rain. :)

    I predicted that I would be pounding that F5 key. I was right...

    So will AC Competizione co-exist with the regular AC ? I don't really understand...

    It will only be a title for me if it will expand on the existing car and track roster, and preferably without too much SRO pollution to interfere with the neutrality I've enjoyed in AC. However, only Blancpain The Game? Bye for now then.

    And everyone thought 2017 was the big year for Sims.
    If you don't have a PC, now is the time to start thinking about the early access beta this summer.

    I'm beyond excited.

    Someone once commented on GTP post that Unreal Engine cannot be used for a sim. WRONG!! A.C.C. is going to be using it :lol:!!

    Its a completely different game. Different engines. Only one GT Series as it seems.
    I guess its right, this is sort of a Prologue to the next Assetto Corsa. Good start.

    Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione may be to each other like Gran Turismo 6 and Gran Turismo Sport.

    UNREAL Engine can be used for virtually anything! I've seen it in a multitude of different genres of games.

    Is it the first racing game featuring UE4? The first trailer looks nice and i really like the idea behind this. GT racing is big and doing a proper game around it with all accuracy and the superb AC physics and sounds - great. However, Kunos is such a small studio, expect this to be AC2 for quite a while... which is fine by me.

    Depends. They grew since the Early Access of AC1 significantly. Depending how well ACC (this is the new short form people xD) will do, their team might grow more.

    I hope that the new game will be modable and that all the previous content will come to this new game. I love GT3 cars but I don't want such a limited car selection in a new full priced title.

    Oooh, VERY interesting. As someone who's been trackside for every Blancpain event at Brands Hatch since they started racing there in 2014, can't tell you how hyped I am to do it in game form now. And the weather effects look tremendous.

    Great news! Is it already confirmed that (PC) VR is supported? Could not find an answer on the official webpage?
    I guess VR support is a no brainer. Right?

    Yet. Remember that it's hitting Early Access first — a version 1.0 release isn't pencilled in yet.

    Xbox only recently started doing its own version of Early Access with PUBG, and I don't think PlayStation has a dedicated approach yet (it's just early beta access if a company decides to do it).
     
  30. I really wasn't when I saw the spoiler earlier. But the trailer got me hyped.

    I kinda feel the same but if this wasn't Assetto I would definitely be interested in this. So I will for sure get it.

    Pretty sure that someone was apparent Mr. I. Bell.

    This deal shouldn't be a surprise really considering Marco mentioned they considered the F1 licence. One of the reasons they kicked that idea to the curb was that the licence requires a yearly title release. So that's surely good news for players who want a proper AC sequel as it means we could get one next year as we likely won't be getting another Blancpain title.
