Hey everyone! My name’s Antonela and I’m Community Manager here at 505 Games for Assetto Corsa. Today is a big day for the team, as we celebrate the console launch on PS4!
The Development Team
If you’ve seen any of the trailers or screenshots for Assetto Corsa, we think you’ll all agree that it looks absolutely stunning and the attention to detail is simply breath-taking. This is a result of Kunos Simulazioni’s efforts, a small but incredibly passionate development team based at the ACI Vallelunga Circuit, in the heart of Italy. (Talk about the perfect location to develop a racing game!)
This is a team who has motorsport running through its veins, a team who has been hard at work developing its most realistic driving simulator since 2011.
Your Driving Simulator
Assetto Corsa prides itself on its laser scanned circuits and insanely accurate cars, which have been built from the tires up with actual manufacturer data to ensure the highest level of detail and precision possible. Head into game now and you’ll be able to experience this for yourself in more than 90 cars on iconic circuits such as Silverstone, Monza, Spa Francorchamps, and Nürburgring-Nordschleife (to name a few) in Career mode, Time Attacks, Challenges, Race Weekends, Drag Races, and more!
Kunos Simulazioni’s aim has always been to replicate each car to the finest detail and bring that experience to the player’s living room. Each of the cars featured in Assetto Corsa have been programmed into Kunos’ leading physics engine in order to simulate and replicate some of the greatest cars in motorsport, something not all racing games can offer.
Now you might be thinking… “Won’t I need a full-on driving setup to enjoy Assetto Corsa?”
Anyone with a PS4 and a copy of the game can head out on track and experience what Assetto Corsa has to offer, rest assured! In fact, we recently took the Lamborghini Huracan ST out on track at Silverstone and set very similar lap times using both a controller and a steering wheel!
Assetto Corsa features some of the biggest names in the automobile industry — with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mercedes, McLaren, and most recently, Porsche included in-game or coming soon!
Thanks to Assetto Corsa’s incredible reputation as a driving simulator and the team’s solid relationships with the likes of Ferrari, Assetto Corsa is now being used as a solution for manufacturers for their own simulators.
The checkered flag isn’t being waved for Assetto Corsa, oh no! This really is just the beginning! Kunos Simulazioni intends to continue building on the foundations it has laid and over the coming months, you can expect new content from the team!
For now, though, we can’t wait to hear the community’s thoughts as they strap in and head over to the start line. Before you do though, we want to take this opportunity to thank fans for their incredible support — it really does mean so much to the whole team! We are so fortunate to have such a passionate and knowledgeable community on board, so thank you.
Enjoy your Racing Simulator!
