Assetto Corsa Competizione is a racing simulation game allowing players to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 series, players can compete against official drivers, teams, accessing to all cars and circuits with the highest level of accuracy and attention to detail.

Taking full advantage of Unreal Engine 4, Assetto Corsa Competizione will ensure the highest quality rendering with photorealistic weather conditions and graphics to reach a new standard in driving realism and immersion racing. Players will experience highspeed torque as they get behind the wheel of luxurious speedsters including Ferraris and other prestigious GT cars reproduced with an outstanding level of detail. Motion capture technology is used to create the animations of mechanics and drivers in an even more realistic fashion and guarantee a high level of player engagement during races, pit stops and driver changes.

Assetto Corsa Competizione will be zooming onto Steam Early Access this summer, allowing players to test in advance features and content that will be progressively disclosed.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is the new official game of the Blancpain GT series, named after world-renowned Swiss watch manufacture Blancpain and organized by SRO Motorsports Group.


Assetto Corsa Competizione is releasing its 5th Steam Early Access Program update today, featuring Circuit Zolder, which was reproduced by Kunos Simulazioni using Laserscan® technology, and the unique Emil Frey Jaguar G3.

ACC racers will have access to a tricky combination with the new V8 car and the challenging Belgian circuit, which will be paired with exclusive new Special Events to challenge worldwide online leaderboards, giving everyone the chance to join the “Competizione”.

Kunos Simulazioni developers are using the useful feedback provided by the community through the official forum, to work on the best simulation and gaming experience possible for Assetto Corsa Competizione: that’s why the work of the last month has been focusing on overall stability and consistency of the code behind the game. This flow will allow the Spectator mode, the Multiplayer voting system, and the other “visible” features to come with our next updates and the 1.0 version of the title, although this decision to make ACC's basis even more solid, will hopefully pay off in the future by providing these features with a better overall experience as a result.


The final version of the game will include:

  • MULTIPLAYER AND SINGLE PLAYER CAPABILITIES: Offering a well-structured ranking system, Assetto Corsa Competizione will evaluate individual performance and driving behavior to reward the most virtuous drivers and promote fair play in online competitions. Efficient matchmaking functions will ensure players can compete with opponents of similar skill level and easily find and join races online. Leaderboards will allow players to compare single lap performance with virtual pilots from around the world with the same car, circuit and weather conditions. Career, Championship and Free Play modes will also be available, offering a customized racing experience for all skill levels.
  • REALISTIC WEATHER CONDITIONS: Competitions of different durations, from Sprint 60’ races to the famous Spa 24H Endurance race, Assetto Corsa Competizione will give players the opportunity to compete in different moments of the entire 24-hour arc under a dynamic weather system, thanks to a highly realistic graphical reproduction of weather conditions and visibility.
  • ACCURATE CIRCUITS: With laser scan technology, every official circuit is recreated with the highest level of precision: All curbs and details perfectly fit their real counterparts to grant a gaming experience as faithful to reality as possible.
  • ADVANCED GRAPHICS AND AUDIO EFFECTS: Unreal Engine 4 guarantees photorealistic rendering and with multi-channel audio sampling of real GT cars, Assetto Corsa Competizione conveys captivating and immersive acoustic surrounding and realistic environmental effects.
