Kunos guys did it again. On Christmas Eve. In a gesture to show the appreciation for the massive support from gamers all over the world, the RUF CTR YELLOWBIRD is available as a gift starting today, adding to the on-growing list of awesome cars to drive in Assetto Corsa.
Before I leave you (I'm as eager to try it as you are ), don't forget that on December 31st an important announcement is to be made, regarding the future of our beloved sim. Until then, Happy Christmas to you all !
"The RUF-Automobile license for Assetto Corsa...
About two months since the release of 1.0RC, Kunos team launches the 1.0 version of Assetto Corsa. The game is now out of "Early Access" and joins the market as a finished product. However, this doesn't mean the development is over, far from it. Lots of content remains to be brought by the team as free content or DLC during the next year. And we already know the quality we can expect.
As a bonus (and as a tradition) we should keep an eye on their FB page on December 31st. Another important announcement to be made .
Assetto Corsa 1.0RC is dead...
Studio Black Showroom - Custom made, black studio like showroom, by the_meco
And the_meco strikes back. Lightly this time. But good nonetheless. As in the_meco good . Thank you ! Official release notes:
STUDIO BLACK SHOWROOM
Here is a custom made showroom which is good for taking screen shots of cars or mods as well as different car skins.
To install drop the contents in...

Anyone knew Hope Racetrack in rFactor 1 ? One of the best looking tracks on that engine, if you ask me; made by the hands of @lemax (Miseluk, anyone ?), who was kind enough to allow us the conversion towards Assetto Corsa. Currently, work is in progress, hope(ing) to get a drivable version by the end of this week. Well, actually the track is...
Whoo hoo ! The awaited 1.0 version is out, after a few weeks of total silence (and probably hard hard work)! 1 year and 8 months down the line from the Tech Preview this is the first feature complete released version of Assetto Corsa. Of course there will be some bugs and issues here and there to be iron out - hence the RC title - but I'm sure it's gonna be a treat !
I'd write more, but I'm eager to go on track, and you're probably too busy racing anyways , so I'll leave you with the full list of added features and the release trailer. See you all...
..and more ! A big announcement today on AC's fb page, with cool information about what the near (and not so near) future will bring to Assetto Corsa. A special mention goes to AC member the_meco, proving once more that outstanding work does not go unnoticed and "unpunished" .
"Dear Assetto Corsa fans
We know that in the last few weeks we have been very silent, but there was a valid reason; all our resources and everybody in the dev team have been working real hard in order to finish Assetto Corsa and to prepare a preview Release Candidate...
Yesterday (or Sep 29th, depending on your time zone) Kunos organized a press event, to give their "precious" a proper launch. It was organized directly within Autodromo di Vallelunga (where their HQ also is) and since they were at a racetrack.. there had to be cars. And not just "any": almost the entire lineup of cars present in the game was brought at Vallelunga "in flesh". Or so it seems from the pictures that we've been able to spot on the net .
Will leave you with an approximate translation of the coverage provided by...
As the server is on 24/7, why not put it to good use ?
Club type races, not a part of the official season's calendar (if one in progress). Every week, 2 races will be held, with the same combo, this way everybody can have a shot of making it to the race.
Club races mean no specific registration is required. You can however let others know you plan to participate - more drivers attract even more drivers .
UPDATE: You can reserve a car for a specific event. Your spot will be guaranteed and you...
The current planned date for the first race is beginning of October, hopefully all the important decisions will be clarified until then. Some of the main topics, are or will be opened for discussion shortly. But if anything you are interested in is not covered, feel free to ask, or even create a specific thread (in case you need feedback from other racers).
As promised, Kunos "delivered" on 29th. A new verion which comes with a new car, a new track and some very consistent improvement and optimizations. Still a lot of things going behind the scenes, but as with every release, we are getting closer and closer to 1.0 version. Current milestone is set to a "candidate beta version" within some weeks. As we all know, terms like some, soon, couple of weeks, must be taken with a bit of salt when it comes to simracing or game developement in general . And yes of course, we all hope to be proven wrong when saying...
As promised, for every new 1000 Likes, Kunos will share a new behind the scenes "thing" with us. Promise kept when their FB page hit 32K today. How ? With an awesome announcement the license from TOYOTA for some iconic cars. Among them.. this:
No ? Ok, this ?
Still no ? Ok, I'll put it in context a little bit
Don't know about you guys, but for me, street/real cars.. I will not go out of the house again !
Here's the official press release:...
Last few days (one might add in sync with the real racing calendar) Kunos played again with its fans (us), sharing some really great shots of the presumably work-in-progress Spa Francochamps circuit. It's gonna be a long week until Friday, as nobody yet knows what the build on 29th brings:
- improved graphics ?
- the long-awaited Spa ?
- other goodies ?
Whatever it brings (or not) I am nothing less than admirative to the energy this small studio is spreading.
Here are the said screens
We usually hear about all kinds of partnerships between different companies along a project. And usually they will be financially oriented. This time however, we'll hopefully get to "feel" the benefits of the latest collaboration announced. That's because, aside from the material RSR Nurburg will be probably providing, they also have a great deal of experience with the said cars and the feedback they can give about the behavior in real life could really push Assetto Corsa towards that last drop of authenticity. Time will tell.
"Dear AC followers,
We are pleased to...
We'll get once more to have those sneak peaks in the development of our favorite sim, with the last announcement made by Kunos team. For every 1k Likes, a new set of images will find their way onto the Assetto Corsa Facebook page. So do share away !
"Dear AC followers,
With Assetto Corsa’s debut on Steam Early Access, we almost stopped sharing some of our WIP images from production (except for those which were close to released, oh, and of course the awesome pics created by our AC fans).
Now, with 30,000 genuine followers on Facebook, we have decided to reward you...
New member @NWRAP shared a great pack of skins for the @the_meco's Shelby Cobra. Check them skins out in the AC Skins category. What I love is that every skin has a story behind and they all come from "that" era . There's
A 1963 Canadian GP Shelby Cobra as driven by Ken Miles
Then a 1973 Shelby Cobra 427 as driven by Sam Feinstein
A 1965 Essex Wires Shelby Cobra Replica
A skin "based on the car from Spinout a...
On Friday, 18th, Kunos released a new update (and a few minor ones in the following hours) after skipping the update on July 4th according to the usual 2-weeks schedule. However, it was well worth the wait because this update come with some major features, a new awesome car - the legendary Classic Team Lotus Type 98T, and most importantly prepares the platform for some consistent improvements in the future, towards the 1.0 release. One more noticeable fact would also be that Kunos team is growing, and this can only mean one thing for us: more goodies...
Within a time frame of 4 days the Kunos team teased us with quite a few awesome status updates/news. It all started on Friday when against a not so friendly weather, they gave us a glimpse of the preparation fever before "the" journey ! Some driving hours later, they are safe and sound arrived at location but actual work would start the next day. And why not start a good day of work with a "spoiler".. say like.. a Toyota GT86 ! Now let's add track data, car data, videos/photos, the meeting with the RUF team.. things sound and look really productive for them, and really awesome for us...
This has just been posted by Kunos, on their blog. Those that follow closely the development had an idea about it, but nobody new exactly what was going on. An awesome surprise nevertheless, and this will definitely give a new push to the sim. Here's the complete article:
the new update of Assetto Corsa is available on Steam Early access: take advantage of the Steam sales and get the game in early access at 30% less of the full price. By the way, we wish to thank you for the great support you are giving to...
