From the website:

NEXT GENERATION RACING SIMULATOR
Assetto Corsa features an advanced DirectX 11 graphics engine that recreates an immersive environment, dynamic lighthing and realistic materials and surfaces. The advanced physics engine is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, including features and aspects of real cars, never seen on any other racing simulator such as tyre flat spots, heat cycles including graining and blistering, very advanced aerodynamic simulation with active movable aerodynamics parts controlled in real time by telemetry input channels, hybrid systems with kers and energy recovery simulation. Extremely detailed with single player and multiplayer options, exclusive licensed cars reproduced with the best accuracy possible, thanks to the official cooperation of Car Manufacturers.

ASSETTO CORSA has been developed at the KUNOS Simulazioni R&D office, located just inside the international racing circuit of Vallelunga, allowing the team to develop the game with the cooperation of real world racing drivers and racing teams.

LEGENDARY TRACKS
The circuits have been developed using Laser scan technology, in order to guarantee the highest level of accuracy possible in reproducing real world motor racing environments.
Monza, Silverstone, Imola, Mugello, Spa, Brands Hatch and many more tracks, including the historical reproduction of Monza, that brings again to life the legendary Sopraelevata, the high-speed oval where races were staged until 1961.

EXCLUSIVE CARS
The Assetto Corsa physics engine is all new, using practical knowledge acquired from working closely with the elite of motorsport in order to engineer the best possible accuracy of physics and tactility of feeling.
A physics engine like this begs to be used with officially licensed contents: Abarth, Audi, BMW, Classic Team Lotus, Ferrari, KTM, Lamborghini, Lotus cars, McLaren, Mercedes, Scuderia Glickenhaus, Pagani, Porsche, Tatuus and many more!

Advanced setup options and telemetry for data analysis; dynamic simulation of the tyre rubber deposited on track, depending on the car laps; an adjustable time of the day mode, featuring sun position calculated in realtime, depending by geographical coordinates of the track and by the sun curve according to time and date, in order to get the same light conditions of the real tracks!

MODDING & CUSTOMIZATION
Assetto Corsa will allow for considerable customisation and modification, in order to satisfy the expectations of professional simracers, gamers who prefer to approach the driving experience more progressively, and hobbyists who just like to reproduce and share their cars and tracks, taking advantage of the same editing tools developed and used by the developers of the game.

Enjoy!

      Ultimate Edition is about $9.45 at Gamesplanet.com: https://uk.gamesplanet.com/game/assetto-corsa-ultimate-editi...

        Paid £6.88 ($12) a while ago, tested it once.. oh well.

        Still need to have a proper look at it but noticed controller only works in game not on other screens etc. Also, compared to Forza it's a lot harder to drive so must be more realistic I assume.

          Assetto corsa is a racing simulator, Forza is a racing game. It takes a lot of adjusting but I'd highly recommend getting into it.. especially if you download content manager and get additional tracks from race department. https://assettocorsa.club/content-manager.html Been playing it for 2 years now and absolutely loving it, infinite replayability. At least if you spin out in the game you'd spin out in real life, I find Forza is pretty but too forgiving. Good luck!

            @GreyChris: Thanks mate for the feedback - just as I thought/asssumed. It's still brilliant for the price and I'm sure good once you're used to the driving realistic conditions. I've only got forza on Medium/normal and it's always surprising how fast you can go/hold on. Still get it very wrong so not doubt a learning curve either way :D.

            Also got dirt rally for nothing much a while ago, much the same, a lot harder but cool

    Has anyone noticed how bad the cars sound in this when you're in 3rd person view? The engine literally sounds like it's under water.

      Well yes, but I'm legally blind so it turns out I parked in a river. Or are you talking about the game?

    I have 120 hours into this and I'm still terrible at it.

    Heaps of custom car and track mods available for this game!

    Heads-up, this game is unplayable with controllers, even if you optimise all the sensitivity settings, its really horrible. Defo need a steering wheel to have a decent experience.

    •  

      Played it once and spent a few hours configuring the controller and testing settings. Could do laps around nurburgring but not decent lap times. Haven't tried the steering wheel yet, but will try if I can be bothered taking it out from storage.

      Any real sim is.

    Worth the upgrade for Ultimate edition??? I'm not hardcore at all and don't have a steering wheel. keen to try it in VR however, (with controller)

    •  

      It's also 83% off so only an extra $5. Probably worth it I would guess.

      If you get hooked later you'll save a lot on dlcs by getting the ultimate edition. Once you play it more often it's a non negotiable for the additional cars and laser scanned tracks. On race department there is a enough content to keep you busy for years but the Kunos official laser scanned tracks are perfect.

    Do I need to create an account on their website or can I just get this through steam?

    • +1 vote

      Redeem on Steam.

      •  

        How do I do that? When I try to purchase via stream its $37

        • +2 votes

          You buy from Fanatical (click the link above). You need to make a free account there.
          Then you find the Steam key in your account.
          You then go to your Steam account and copy-paste the code into Steam and click to activate. The game should now be in your Steam library.

          If it is still confusing to you, PM me as I am happy to get it for you and send you the code via PM if you paypal me the money.

            @Lysander: Thanks, I've got it. I am building 4 sims so need to buy 4 copies and create 4 steam accounts. So now need to create 4 Fanatical accounts too :-)

            •  

              @MikeKulls: I have just checked - we have bought an extra key that comes with three Dreampacks as well. Just in case you only want to create three accounts PM me. Or if you have any more questions.

              •  

                @Lysander: Thanks, I got it working. I found 1 Fanatical account can only purchase the game twice so have to have 2 fanatical accounts and 4 steam accounts.
