Assetto Corsa 2 may be in advanced development, but Kunos Simulazioni hasn’t forgotten about Assetto Corsa Competizione. The studio recently released a major update, codenamed 1.9, that brings a significant improvement to the physics system and driving model of the game.
The update introduces several improvements to the driving model and physics that will enhance the overall gaming experience.
The developers have improved the tire model, deformation, heating, rolling resistance, grip surface simulation, bumpstop simulation, suspension travel limits, damper simulation, and logic of electronic systems (TC1, TC2, ABS).
Additionally, there’s a new engine braking simulation for the Huracan EVO2, and an improved aerodynamic mapping for vehicle rolls.
Aside from these driving model and physics improvements, the update also features an updated version of the Mercedes AMG GT3 Evo car with the latest features, a new Balance of Performance (BOP), and support for the latest DLC, GT World Challenge.
This paid add-on introduces three new cars, the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo2, Porsche 911 GT3 R, and Ferrari 296 GT3, to the game. The DLC is available for purchase on Steam for 12,99€.
Fans of Assetto Corsa Competizione on PS5 and XSX/XSS can expect to receive the expansion later in 2023. The full patch notes for patch 1.9 can be found here.
With the latest improvements and new cars, Assetto Corsa Competizione fans have plenty of reasons to keep coming back for more. The updates continue to enhance the game’s already impressive driving model and physics system, providing a realistic and immersive racing experience.
Kunos Simulazioni has once again delivered a top-notch update for its dedicated fan base, demonstrating their commitment to providing the best possible gaming experience for racing enthusiasts.
