Assetto Corsa – Development Update

Since the release of the latest Technology Demo update, things have gotten a bit quiet around Assetto Corsa.

Now, Marco Massarutto has released a development update, touching on various subjects such as a brand new car to be included, upcoming features as well as the release date:

Ok, some flash news. The inclusion of Pagani Huayra in Assetto Corsa hasn’t been officially revealed but is not a secret anymore, we have collected all data we need to reproduce this ‘hypercar’ at the best.

The AC Tech Preview has had an unexpected impact on our activities, adding a massive interest about our software technology.
This is creating a lot of opportunities for our team, and meanwhile, we are supporting some big-name companies that already take advantage of our software for professional purposes.

This requires time and is one of the reasons of the lack of information released in April. Also, we have received a lot of feedback and suggestions not only by gamers but also by a lot of videogaming journalists and by other people involved in this business, that helped us to reconsider some features and options that should be included in the first release of AC (who said “career” mode?).

We had already scheduled to include some of these features in additional packages, but we believe that the potential of Assetto Corsa has become so high that we must take the right decisions at the right time, also in relation of distribution channels we’ll use to sell and distribute our game.

Soon, we’ll have the answer to the most frequently asked question related to Assetto Corsa: “when?”, cos’ we have a precise date in mind. Also we’ll reveal all main features and contents included in the game, starting to show&talk about gameplay.

Assetto Corsa will be powered by a brand new DirectX 11 graphics engine and will come with advanced features such as blur & DOF. The title will offer extensive modding support as well as ten laser-scanned tracks and fully licensed cars as well as AI – A first for a Kunos title.

The title will be available in 2013, the title will feature licensed cars from manufacturers such as Ferrari, BMW & Lotus.

    ” The title will be available in 2013 ” Omg.. Thought it was released in Q1 :(

      I’ll rather wait the end of the year for f*cking awesome game which I’ll play in next years, than unpolished game with tons of bugs, defects and so on.

      • Marco Hooghuis

        I’m confident that it’ll be worth the wait. These guys know what they’re doing and (as they mentioned) take feedback very serious.

        I’d wait five years for it, like GT5. Maybe they shouldn’t even release it, then it would be perfect…

      Bummmer, on the other hand not really surprising if you realize how long pCars and rf2 take to develop. In fact I was surprised they could have pulled it off in early 2013 considering they’re no EA like big company.

      It will be worth the wait, I wouldn’t mind waiting till 2014 even

      • Horrace Foster

        Points to you, exactly except thats what alot so called sim experts keep forgetting, they dont have millions to throw at it, and then find away to still get it wrong, and they do listen, can we say that about EA?

    Glad to hear about career mode. If they want it to be appealing to casual gamers who still want realistic physics, that is a must have.

    Not too bothered by the release date delay. Everyone delays.

    • http://twitter.com/redrumoz Andrew Tiltman

      Your assuming that the physics will remain realistic….. lol! Trying to appeal to the casual gamer will see the physics ruined, you will see :)

        You are assuming that physic will become arcade… lol!
        Do you find anything familiar in mi comment? ;) Trying to appeal to casual gamer will mean more features for everybody. They’re not stupid: working on a physic engine for years just to dumb it down few months before the game release would be crazy, don’t you think?

      • Alejandro Gorgal

        I know you are trolling but…Did you consider the tech demo in any way arcade? Because if you did then clearly you know nothing about physics.

        We have other cases of excellent gamepad support in sims:
        R3E and rFactor 2 beta. iRacing is quite good but not quite as good.
        AC xbox 360 gamepad support is horrible though.

        Ironically, one of the worst gamepad support is F1 2012.

      • http://twitter.com/Uff182 Andrea Candini

        Well, I guess it’s just a matter of personal taste, as I find X360 gamepad is working really well both in AC and F1 2012, while I can’t get a decent configuration in rF2.
        I agree with you if you say that it can’t still be configured as we wish, though.

    • http://twitter.com/_Jagdstaffel11_ ___ ɥqp ___

      Yep, everyone delays alright.

      My only concern reading the stuff from Marco of Kunos is that they are trying too hard to please everybody (suggestions from gamers, journos, and other people in the business) rather than just doing the sim the way they want.

    • Hurdy Hurdy

      Indeed they do.

      It’s just laughable how the staunch AC defenders pick fault at other titles for delaying content/updates, but where AC is concerned it’s all OK, because they are wanting to make it perfect and they are only a small group etc. etc.

  • Richard

    I don’t want to wait for some silly “career mode”. The start of slight arcade shift?
    Start the game already!

    • Fredrik Lundvall

      I’m not with you at all. I’ve missed a proper career mode in simracing. I think this adds alot to the game and i know i certainly will give it a go. How could this be arcadish? It’s just another feature that simracing seems to have forgotten that could add great fun.

    • Jim. C

      I’m not interested in a career mode myself but I’ve got no problem with it being included. As long as all cars and tracks are unlocked and ready to race from the outset then I’m happy. That’s what I like about PC sims – no grinding to earn credits to race the cars you like.

    • Noel Hibbard

      I agree Richard. This news has me a little nervous. But money talks I guess.

      partly agree, I’ve got no interest in a career, but I do want fully customizable seasons, thats all I do in Race 07, GTR2 and rF1, career is partly what put me off Codies F1, too much crap, not enough racing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1711429307 Chris Wright

        Again I’m going to agree with you Kris. I’ve never worked out why this career thing is such a pull. If a game is worth racing, then why does anyone need any of the sideshow flannel? Just get in and drive – that’s what I love about rF2.

      • http://twitter.com/Uff182 Andrea Candini

        Probably because people like it, as the million copies sold by GT/FM/Shift show. ;)

        I agree, but I don’t think most sim racers are bothered with it. They’d rather see development budget spent on more car and track realism. But that’s the defining difference between an rF2 and a GT5 isn’t it.

      • Jim. C

        Agreed, full seasons and custom championships are all I want from a sim racing game.

  • Anonymous

    Gran Turismo. For the PC. With proper sim-spec physics, with arguably the most realistic physics/tyre models of any sim, with the best ffb of any sim. Cars you can properly drive, and drift, and play with. Ive no doubt that the racing cars will be just as good. Its like some sort of dream.

    this is it. the 3rd revolution in simracing since the modding of F1 challenge 99-02, and Simbins sensational GTR.

    im happy to wait for as long as it takes to make this product right. And so should all of you – look what happens when it goes wrong (rfactor 2).

    • Philip Samuelson

      My opinions side with yours, but you wouldn’t consider rFactor the third revolution and this the fourth?

      Great points though!

      -Blacker.

      • Anonymous

        hmmm yes maybe, i upgraded my computer just to run rfactor.
        I think the reason i didn’t classify it as one of the revolutions is because it used the same engine as the EA ISI F1 games, and really the whole modding scene had been about for years before, with the Grand Prix games, although they were a bit tricky to configure and install.

        it was F1 challenge 99-02/F1 2002 for me which was the first sim game where there were a lot of easy to install mods about, and especially with F1 (the ralph Hummerech stuff) – you then got the expansions of leagues, the infamous GTR 2002 mod which launched Simbin etc..etc…

        that was the revolution, i’d classify rfactor as the evolution, as it was focused entirely around the ability to mod, rather than the EA games where it was a bi product.

      • Philip Samuelson

        You make some fair points, for sure. My experience with rFactor was distinctly different. It had such a different feel for me, even from F1 99-02 despite, as you said, tje same engine. I don’t know this to be true, but I thought the sheer amount of modding we saw with rF1 is something we’d never seen before, with any other sim. I don’t know that for sure, but that was my understanding of why it was so breakthrough. We’d never seen a game quite so modifiable.

        Again though, you make some very good points. It’s a hell of an interesting argument both ways!

        -Blacker.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Pablo-Coronel/583236136 Pablo Coronel

      I agree mostly with you but cant says rfactor 2 goes wrong because isnt finished, ill wait for the final release of both to make conclusions.

    • http://www.facebook.com/nicolas.grignon Nicolas Grignon

      The analogy with GT5 seems to be uncanny: beautiful graphics and physics, crappy sounds… ;-) But more seriously, imagine if GT5 would allow new modded contents like cars and series… to bypass the awful licence scam.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1711429307 Chris Wright

      I think it’s incredibly premature to be placing this above rFactor2, which for me is now becoming quite stunning with vast potential. The biggest reservation I have with AC at this stage is that the Tech Preview doesn’t include any AI and, remember, NetKar Pro has no AI in it, so it remains to be seen how well Kunos will fair in this, for me and many others I’m sure, absolutely vital aspect of the title.

      • Anonymous

        couldn’t care less about AI – see we have this thing now called broadband, which means you can play against real people online.

        regarding Rf2 – any of its potential lies in the modders and the modding community – which is what made RF1. Why would modders bother modding for Rf2, when AC has better dx11 graphics and has interesting things like the Apps features? Guaranteed you’re going to see people producing a lot more content for AC than RF2.

        in terms of RF2 being stunning – hahaha. It still has joke ISI physics (no slip angle, terrible low speed grip physics, cannot drive the car off feel and grip but have to memorise input positions, awful sounds, lacklustre graphics, Atrocious Menu and GUI, poor FFB which communicates none of the info you actually need to drive, etc…etc….).

        RF2’s success now depends 100% on the modders, and they ain’t gonna touch RF2 when AC comes out. Note that the best mods for RF1 have all tried to deal with and improve the low speed grip and slip angle issue of the gmotor engine, like with Niels Huskenvelds mods.

        Having a fancy tyre model, as ISI claim, is Useless if the input data is poor, or you haven’t simulated all aspects correctly.
        Kunos has used a totally different approach, using common sense and getting the car in the game to behave like cars do in real life – hence why NKP and now AC is already showing to be vastly better in terms of physics/FFB.

        RF2 will die when AC comes out, i certainly wont be attending the funeral. Finally the death of gmotor.

      • http://racingrenders.com/ F1Racer

        While I certainly don’t agree with everything you’ve said here, I do find it very refreshing that you correctly said ‘couldn’t care less’ instead of this erroneous ‘I could care less’ thing that people seem to say these days.

        Absolutely right once more. The AI in rFactor2 is now absolutely outstanding, in terms of behavior and competitiveness. We’ll see how Kunos does with AI, something they have little apparent experience with.

        I still play RF2 every now and again and although the FFB is nice in terms of conveying road bumps and jolts , it does nothing to convey subtaltieis of the car.

        The way the cars drive in NKP is far more believable than RF2 and the lotus in the TD was mind blowing.

        I would not be surprised if most people ditch RF2 for AC or only use RF2 for some specific things.

      • Anonymous

        What I ain’t ditching nothing I will own Assetto but that does not mean I’m gonna throw any other title away.

      • Horrace Foster

        Dude now thats the truth, there was a reason why I bought it, if not for rfactor alot of these online and off shoots would never have happened, and the people who liked rfactor are doing the same thinig , I am doing playing everything else and waiting for the Final product, I am not forgetting that I am dealing with people who dont quit, and had the decency to make it moddable from the start, so all you fanboys, lets be real, all of the racing games and sims appeal to somebody and not just you!

      • GamerMuscle

        You wont have to throw it away unlike RF1 that stuck around and you could play again years after buying it to try out a new mod.

        RF2 requires you to buy a yearly license for $10-$15 to play on-line , which is not a massive cost but if AC offers mods , high quality graphics higher quality simulation of on the limit driving , laser scanned tracks. then unless RF2 does something big , then I wont renew and allot of others wont killing the game on-line.

        I’m not in a rush to throw away RF2 I have 30+ hours racing on it and have had some good fun with it I’m just saying what I believe will likely happen.

      • http://twitter.com/_Jagdstaffel11_ ___ ɥqp ___

        Disagree about people ditching, rF2.

        My money says that most simmers who visit this site will own both AC and rFactor 2.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1711429307 Chris Wright

        I absolutely stand by my rF2 comments. If you want to start talking about accuracy of driving models, well as an ex Lotus Elise/Exige owner I’m in a pretty good position to comment on the AC demo physics. Way, way, way off. Not even close. Poor acceleration characteristics, a stodgy steering feel at odds with the nimble feel of the real thing, to say nothing of the huge amount suspension of travel is laughable and unlike any Lotus I ever drove. If you want to know how an Elise/Exige feels to drive, try the one in GTR2 – much closer than AC in overall feel.

        All that said, I still think AC is going to be huge fun, but right at this moment not the last word in realism.

        AI may not matter to you, which is fine. As Kris comments below, not all of us are keen to have their time wasted competing against online wreckers.

        hmmm, funny isn’t it.

        I myself have driven a mark 2 Elise, and have good experience driving some racing cars at their limits, see my youtube channel, where i’ve done a couple of track days. You make the Exige sound like some sort of stiffly spring GT3 car – that it is not, by any stretch.
        It is fairly stiff, and its got very neutral handling characteristics, but comparing it to the Lotus in GTR2 – you must be joking? Do you have any idea how different the race version of the Elise is compared to the road going version? lol.

        http://www.youtube.com/user/muoslopful

        As for you being an Elise/Exige owner and that giving you an informed opinion – It doesn’t.

        Being able to comment accurately on a car depends very much on whether you’re a competent enough driver in real life, and whether you have the confidence/ability to drive a car on its limits (skid point) happily.

        from the various track days and driving competitions I’ve done (been on tv in the UK etc.) I can safely say that the majority of people I’ve come across have absolutely no ability or confidence. Maybe you do, but your comment tells me a few things: A. probably never driven your car on the track. B. If you have, probably never got anywhere near its limits.

        sorry – this is not personal, im just describing the problem of people commenting on what is realistic and what isn’t.

        If you take into account the Force feedback wheel you’re using, which will have MUCH MUCH less torque than the road car Lotus, the actual handling characteristics of the car are excellent and very much close to reality.

        you’re just wrong.

      • Horrace Foster

        You may know a thing about the real cars, but you also seem like you just have to be right too, but you dont speak for all of or to all of us, as I said before we like what we like, if the gentlemen is talking about the cars in the sim compared to the cars in another sim, what the heck are you talking about?

      • GamerMuscle

        Why do you keep comparing a race car with a road car ?

        Its like me comparing a race speck BMW with a bog standard commuter BMW they are not even comparable.

        AC lacks some sense of torque in the steering but the fundamental physics of the car , communication of grip and the overall dynamics are spot on.

        We are yet to see how well the game does race cars but your argument against the car makes no sense , especially as you are basing it on totally flawed premise that the car should be like the one in GTR2 which is a different car.

        Have you ever driven an Elise on a race track ?

        Have you watched the video of the car on the same track
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzX7Zf4JugU notice how it drives almost exactly the same ?

        Every car review of the lotus Elise matches up to how the car drives in AC in terms of how you have to drive the car to manuver it and play with its mass.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1711429307 Chris Wright

        The Exige, which I have owned, is basically a Motorsport Elise.

      • GamerMuscle

        And have you ever driven it on a race track near the limit ?

        Go and watch a video of the lotus on the same track as the TD , ITS 100% the same as the simulator , the lines people take line up exactly with the line I ended up taking when hot lapping.

        The pushing of the car around the corners in the middle of the track to get the back end out lines up exactly , the way the car handles over the bumps and the last two corners is Exactly the same .

        The way the car under steers unless you throw it around lines up with the video and every review of the car.

        If you think they TD lotus does not match up to a real lotus I can only assume that you have never driven the car at the limit.

        Granted as I said originally the FFB lacks torque but that could be down to FFB wheel as much as anything , the core underlying physics are spot on , or as spot on as anything I have ever experienced in a simulator before.

        Out of interest what’s your best lap time in the AC TD ?

        Are you related to that ted haggard bloke?

      • GamerMuscle

        No , I just don’t understand how you could come to your conclusions.

        unless you are basing everything on raw steering toque as that is the one thing that’s lacking in AC , but its also lacking in every simulator unless you have a ultra high end FFB wheel.

        I know allot of people think the FFB in RF2 is amazing when in reality the baulk of the FFB is simply shake and bumps rather than conveying the mass of the car.

        I’d rather have FFB that conveys subtle information about tire grip and car load , than FFB that just shakes my hands.

        What is your best lap time in ACTD ?

        Obviously I’m not trolling , which can be seen by how reasonable everything I said is.

        “attempt to discredit my comments”

        So if someone disagrees with you and clearly points out where your argument is floored they are trolling ?

        Every time someone confronts you with anything you get all defensive and avoid the question , if you cannot defend a statement why make it ?

        ” I’m in a pretty good position to comment on the AC demo physics. Way, way, way off. Not even close. Poor sense of speed for a car so low to the ground, a generally stodgy steering feel at odds with the nimble feel of the real thing, to say nothing of the amount of suspension travel – unlike any Lotus I ever drove.”

        Are you using a t500 ?

      • GamerMuscle

        No , I just don’t understand how you could come to your conclusions.

        unless you are basing everything on raw steering toque as that is the one thing that’s lacking in AC , but its also lacking in every simulator unless you have a ultra high end FFB wheel.

        I know allot of people think the FFB in RF2 is amazing when in reality the baulk of the FFB is simply shake and bumps rather than conveying the mass of the car.

        I’d rather have FFB that conveys subtle information about tire grip and car load , than FFB that just shakes my hands.

        What is your best lap time in ACTD ?

        And have you ever driven it on a race track near the limit ?

        Go and watch a video of the lotus on the same track as the TD , ITS 100% the same as the simulator , the lines people take line up exactly with the line I ended up taking when hot lapping.

        The pushing of the car around the corners in the middle of the track to get the back end out lines up exactly , the way the car handles over the bumps and the last two corners is Exactly the same .

        The way the car under steers unless you throw it around lines up with the video and every review of the car.

        If you think they TD lotus does not match up to a real lotus I can only assume that you have never driven the car at the limit.

        Granted as I said originally the FFB lacks torque but that could be down to FFB wheel as much as anything , the core underlying physics are spot on , or as spot on as anything I have ever experienced in a simulator before.

        Out of interest what’s your best lap time in the AC TD ?

      • Anonymous

        1. The car in AC is an Elise SC. This is just a supercharged version of the basic road going Lotus Elise.

        2. An Exige is not anything like as close as an Elise trophy car or any race spec Lotus. If you honestly believe that, I advise you to go and do some research on the difference in specifications, noting the suspension, brakes, air restrictions, tuning to the engine, etc… let alone comparing a set of track day orientated road tyres to a set of slicks.

        So a company that sells software used by big racingteams for their simulator doesn’t have a clue about tire physics and FFB?? Is that what your saying? Do you talk about a early build or something because it seems you’ve never tried rF2 after like refunding the first moment you weren’t pleased….

      • Anonymous

        yeh i think you’ll find the software they sell is a framework, an engine which allows modular components like tyre models to be plugged in. The teams use their own tyre and physics models, not ISI’s.
        As someone who has driven Caterhams F1 simulator at their HQ in Leafield, which uses the Rfactor Pro software, this information is 100% accurate.
        Also it even describes it like this on the website, if you bothered to do the slightest bit of research.

    As my PC won’t run DX11 and I’m not planning to update until the summer, from a selfish viewpoint I’m not worried about a delay. Indeed, I hope AC manages to avoid the issues rF2 is having with its beta/not a beta release. I don’t mind if some features are not yet incorporated but I want those which are to work.

    Career mode? For the offline racer like me that’s great. In the real world you cannot just race any car on any track, you have a career. This is nothing to do with sim vs arcade. Even iRacing has a career mode.

    • Jim. C

      Yes but in the real world I can’t race a DTM at Hockenheim. Sim racing allows me to do that so the last thing I want is a career mode stopping me from driving the cars I like. Some of us don’t want the grind.

      • Anonymous

        I’m curious why so many people speculate that career mode means locking out quick-play options. Those days are mostly gone now where you needed to grind to gain access to content in free play. Game developers learned that lesson, I would be surprised if Kunos made that mistake.

      • Jim. C

        Hopefully it doesn’t mean that, but the general trend for console racing games is to earn credits and unlock cars. I’m pretty sure Kunos aren’t stupid enough to go down that path on the PC.

      • Anonymous

        Only if you drive within the career mode or want to upgrade cars (last I checked, didn’t think AC was doing the car upgrade thing). Most console games have backtracked on forcing things to be unlocked in the last few years because the backlash became so strong. I remember both Guitar Hero and Rock Band started that way and backtracked, as did Forza.

Good thing walls don’t damage Formula cars. That type of realistic career mode I can live without.

    From
    my point of view I don’t see any valuable reason for any racing
    enthusiasts to overlook this sim now. I really don’t understand the
    correlation between career mode and arcade. Progression in a game is
    important and no recent simulation on pc had any real career mode so
    this will fill an important hole. You want all your cars unlocked, go
    multiplayer/hotlap mode and the problem is solved so I don’t see
    anything wrong about it.

  • http://twitter.com/WallyMasterson Wally Masterson

    From my personal point of view, career mode is an utter waste of time as I race exclusively in private leagues, and I’m disappointed to have to wait. I understand the appeal for a wider market though.

    And no AI I have every raced against in any sim comes close to human opposition, so again, I couldn’t care less.

    I’m more than happy to wait for physics, tracks, cars and solid netcode though.

    This is a clear case. I sum up the sim race community.
    career mode -> broader audience -> arcade -> AC is simcade.
    When I compare the development of AC with the concept of pCARS,
    and the sim community has already recognized pCARS as simcade, then AC is also simcade now, isn’t it?

    All because of a career mode. Shame on you, Kunos. You lost all credibility in the sim community!
