Assetto Corsa – Technology Preview Status Update
Shortly before Christmas, Kunos Simulazioni revealed the release roadmap for their Assetto Corsa title. Before the release of the first version later in Q1 2013, the team is looking to release a small “Technology Preview demo” beforehand.
Work on the technology preview seems to be progressing very well as Kunos’ Stefano Casillo recently shared the following on Twitter:
The infamous Tech Preview has been FINALLY put on the fire.,, let’s see how long it’ll take to cook.
Stefano quickly needed to calm down his followers, clarifying that the tech demo is still a few weeks away. Said to be include one car and one track, Stefano also clarified that the tech demo won’t include any multiplayer functionality.
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.
