Yes, Assetto Corsa Competizione is finally available on Steam!
The game is based on the Blancpain GT series, which is a real competition in Europe. This means access to the FIA GT3 homologated championship, official drivers, teams, cars, and circuits.
Assetto Corsa Competizione is made with Unreal Engine 4 and will get variable weather conditions and night races. It will also feature a career mode which allows users to create their own racing team.
If you think that this is just a slightly different version from the previous Assetto Corsa, Marco Massarutto, Co-founder and Brand & Product Manager of Kunos Simulazioni, tell us that it is not the case: “Never take anything for granted, even if you have the Assetto Corsa experience behind you! Assetto Corsa Competizione has been completely rebuilt from scratch, not only to best harness and adapt to the Unreal Engine 4 capabilities, but also to define a new standard in terms of realism and car handling. “
The game got mostly positive reviews but few negative too. Those seem to be mostly related to the VR (virtual reality) compatibility. Not everyone got such a headset but I can understand that if you have one it can be annoying to not be able to use it. Let’s hope that the developer will spot and fix that.
