Kunos Simulazioni has released first previews of the Mugello track in their Assetto Corsa title.

Kunos Simulazioni has released first previews of the Mugello track in their Assetto Corsa title.

The popular Italian circuit is part of the company’s recently-announced licensing deal with the Scuderia Ferrari.

Located near Florence, the current 15-corner layout of the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello was opened in 1974. The track hosts annual rounds of the MotoGP and other Β series and is used as a Formula One testing venue, mainly by the Scuderia Ferrari.

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.

Assetto Corsa will be available in Q1 2013, the title will feature licensed cars from manufacturers such as Ferrari, BMW & Lotus.

    It looks quite good, no doubt! After a bunch of gmotor2 titles with very outdated graphics engine, this is a feast for my eyes. That’s enough for me, I don’t need pCARS or GT5 graphics to enjoy!

      not to mention outdated physics, sounds, GUI.
      can’t wait for the death of gmotor when this comes out.

        Death? Why? I am enjoying SO MUCH driving P&G3 mod for GTR2, and it is a gmotor2 engine! Honestly that mod keeps me in touch with simracing while I’m waiting for AC or GTR3. So as you can see gmotor2 still can provide awesome driving feel and physics, no need for death wishes or something. πŸ™‚

      • StarFoXySxv550

        Death was a bit strong I agree, but it’s the same as the current gen consoles, people are screaming for something new and it’s understandable really, how long have we had G-motor now? It’s still welcome, but not in that old recycled state as much as it used to be, it won’t die for some time, but still it’s nice to have something a little fresher, even ISI believe this or rF2 wouldn’t be in public beta.

      • Marco Conti

        I agree. When the new crop of simulators will sport the same content as P&G3 (or maybe something more) then I’ll happily attend the Gmotor2 funeral. But for now Gmotor2 sims are the only ones where I can find 60’s and 70’s gt cars, 70’s F1 car, F5000 cars and so on. There is a lot of work ahead for these simulators before they can even start to produce the kind of enjoyment I am getting out of the older ones.

        The usual provocative tripe from Pastor Numbnuts.

      • F1Racer

        Getting a bit tired of this anti-rFactor flaming now. You want to big up AC, then go ahead, but it doesn’t need to be at the expense of rFactor.
        You’re just trying to provoke people with posts like that. Play nice.

        why is it anti rfactor flaming? its not. Everything ive said in my post about rfactor is totally true. Just because something negative is said about something doesnt make it ‘trolling’ or ‘flaming’.

        What is yours and everyones obsession with being so positive and nice about absolutely everything? Its pathetic.

        It is a FACT that the graphics from rfactor 2 are already outdated, and a dissapointment, the Physics are very very similar to Rfactor 1, with virtually no tangible improvement, they still have the poor low speed grip issues, you still cannot drive the cars properly on the limit, balancing inputs, like you can with netkar pro, or Real Life.

        It DOES have an awful outdated menu system, and the cars released by ISI so far have absolutely terrible sounds.

        Oh not to mention the complete mess which is the FFB in RF2, with virtually no feel, and especially with the F2 car, it has been proven with force tests that it is completely broken (just go on the F2 forum). The only car that works well in RF2 is the 60’s F1 car.

        Sorry but this is the truth, and i am perfectly entitled to say these things because they are true. So what, youre now putting a ban on anyone criticising rfactor? Get real.

        It is very clear from what we’ve seen from AC already that it has better graphics, a better menu system, and better thought out, not to mention made by the same guys who made netkar pro and so will have the best physics of any sim by a long way.

        Im not trying to provoke anyone, no one has to respond to anything i say. they have a choice. Also i didnt even mention rfactor anyway LOL, i said GMOTOR, referring to the Engine which powers a bunch of simgames.

      • F1Racer

        Simply put, it’s not what you say, but how you say it.

        Sometimes you have about as much diplomacy as a bull in a china shop.

        There are no obsessions or bans on anyone here. Say what you like, positive or negative. I would just hope you have it in you to know how to express yourself a bit better.

        In one of your recent posts you said that anyone playing rF2 after AC was release is deluded. How is that not flaming ??

        You can’t go around calling people deluded because they want to play a sim that you don’t.

        I could re-write your original post here to say pretty much the exact same thing without it sounding anywhere near as provocative. You however just dive in there.

        It is you who seems to have an obsession with pointing out differences in rF2 to AC. Graphics and menu’s are not the only things that go into making a sim. Physics and FFB are important and rFactor 2’s will stand up on it’s own regardless of what AC produces. Your opinion differs on that obviously but a lot of simmers are happy with how it is at the moment.

        You are one of these people who has to put one sim down in favour of another. As if it’s not possible that both can be enjoyed for their own merits regardless of if one has inferior graphics, sound or whatever. You get one sim in your head that you want to favour then spend your time knocking the others to big up the one you like.

        Like I said, have your opinion I couldn’t care less what it is. I do care when I think the post is there to provoke a reaction from others. Attention seeking, that’s all your post was.

        Why can’t we just nix all the unproductive whiny posters?

      • F1Racer

        Yeah. Some just need a hug and a bit of compassion.
        That, though, will not come from me πŸ™‚

      • Mrslfrsl

        huh, i think your comments are outdated.

  • Tuttle

    This seems the same content used in Ferrari Virtual Academy…as the 458…:)

    • sargentjack86

      Somehow I think the track looks a bit better……;-) Although the engine sounds for the 458 are actually very similar.

    • gt3rsr

      Nothing wrong ’bout that. Most people wanted to drive the FVA cars in a proper sim with a multiplayer (or AI), setup options and without limitations. The only matter was if Ferrari allows the license to be used also in other titles… but I suppose that relationships between Kunos and Ferrari are quite good.

  • Anonymous

    My favorite track in simracing along with Vallelunga. I can’t wait to drive the 458 around those 2 tracks πŸ™‚

      What, no screed about how AC missed their 2012 deadline? I thought that was your big thing.

      Oh, never mind you’re just a fanboy/hater. Carry on being irrelevent.

      • F1Racer

        What did he say wrong ?

      • Anonymous

        Aside from every single post of his on iRacing being a whinge? And sometimes unrelated topics being simply a vehicle for him to hate on iR?

      • Anonymous

        Since this particular post was completely acceptable and none of what you mentioned all you did was make yourself look ridiculous.

      • Timpie Claessens

        There’s stuff on there that’s still half assed or just completely missing so I wouldn’t use iRacing too much as an example

      • Anonymous

        I know, just surprised that such a professional iRacing hater would know 2.0 was LAST year and not this year. If he’s going to troll, he should at least do it right. πŸ˜‰

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        How much does iracing pay you to go forum to forum singing their praises?

      • Anonymous

        If you think I’m totally happy with every single thing, you haven’t been reading my posts. You honestly think reminding a troll that the unfulfilled promise of NTM on all cars is more than a year old (ie, worse than he said it was) is singing their praises?

    • Racer

      I want Superstars International series with such cars as RS5, Quatroporte, C63 AMG in this awesome game ! πŸ™

      • Jim. C

        So do I! Hopefully this great series appears in one of the new sims.

  • Charles Sami Amyouni

    One word… AWESOME!

  • Alexandre Martini

    honestly, not at the same level of iracing tracks… but it’s in the physics and dynamics of the track that we’re interested right? come on march!

    • Michael Hornbuckle

      I didn’t know iracing was in DX11 and had changeable time of day with dynamic shadows…Ac is on a different level for sure

      Can’t wait until this comes out…Great time to be a sim racer.

        And it would be a bad time to be a dad of a baby daugter. πŸ˜€

      • Anonymous

        DX11 doesn’t necessarily make things look better. I think Alexandre is refering to texturing.

        Will be interesting to see which gets released first, AC or iRacing’s dynamic lighting. πŸ™‚

      • WaitingForAC

        Give me a break, iRacing has set the benchmark for taking forever. Considering AC was initiated a little over one year ago, and we are almost 20+ months in to the NTM with little changed to it- I think you may want rethink your statement.

  • Roger

    Mugello is one of my favorite tracks, very technical first part after the first corner and then some semi and fast bends. Quite challenging to get perfect!

    Really looking forward to a variety of accurately modeled tracks like this to go with what appears to be leading physics and driving model!
