Assetto Corsa – 13 Minutes of Gameplay Footage
Wim Bries has been fortunate enough to attend the GamesCom media day yesterday, capturing 13 minutes of footage of the Assetto Corsa show floor demo.
Along with the video, Wim also shared his initial experience on the simulation:
Assetto Corsa exceeded all of my expectations. My first impression when just looking at the overall graphical style got me really exited.
It just looks the works. Overall external car physics (Movement) seemed to have the correct speed and sense of weight.
Shadings and Dept of field where spot on.
When i finaly stept into the rig, and got to do a few laps with the BMW Z4 GT3 i did not know what to expect of the actual physics of the game.
It very soon became clear that this must be one of the best compromises between Sim and Fun i came across in a long time. The car behaves as you would expect, and you really feel connected to the track. Details like braking feel, oversteer and understeer seemed so natural. even after a few minutes in a noisy environment with a wheel and pedals i never used. I might ad i was pleasantly surprised by the Fanatec GT wheel used on the rig. Great wheel.
GamesCom visitors can give Assetto Corsa a try themselves as the alpha version is playable at the Acer booth B50 in hall 10.1.
