Assetto Corsa expands their garage with DLC

Assetto Corsa

It’s been a little while since I reviewed Assetto Corsa. The number of vehicles in the game from the outset is staggering and it’s an amazing simulator. Kunos Simulazoni and 505 Games have since released three new DLC vehicle packs for the petrol heads among us. Here are the details.

The Japanese Pack will introduce seven new cars in a total of twelve versions. These are spread across different classes, types and ages.

Japanese Pack:

  • Mazda MX-5 2015
  • Mazda MX-5 CUP
  • Mazda RX-7 Spirit R + tuned version
  • Toyota Supra MK IV + time attack and drift version
  • Toyota AE86 Trueno + tuned and drift verson
  • Nissan 370Z NISMO 2016
  • Nissan GT-R R34 Skyline V-Spec

The Prestige Pack appeals to tastes of those who like the finer things in life, including some high-octane powered supercars. Nine new vehicles are included in this pack.

Prestige Pack.

  • Ferrari 488 GTB
  • Audi R8 V10 Plus
  • Corvette C7 Stingray
  • Ford Mustang 2015
  • Lamborghini Gallardo SuperLeggera
  • Nissan GR-T NISMO 2014
  • Toyota GT-86
  • Audi A1 S1
  • BMW M4 Coupe

Now, the eagle-eyed among us may have noticed that there are some vehicles included in the Prestige Pack that were offered as a Pre-Order incentive. Fear not, brave Pre-Orderers, you can still obtain the rest of the Prestige content, by purchasing the Performance Upgrade Pack.

The Japanese Pack is available to download, now, for free, for all Season Pass owners, although the Prestige and Performance Upgrade Packs will not be. The Japanese Pack can also be purchased separately.

These are currently available and are priced at £5.59 or your local currency equivalent.

Kunos Simulazioni. Before Assetto Corsa was revealed by publisher 505 Games, I’d never heard of them. Judging by the screenshots that are coming out from the developer, you’ll be hearing a lot more from them very soon I’d imagine.

Today, Kunos has revealed the pack star for the retail edition of Assetto Corsa and petrol heads won’t be disappointed. Featuring on the cover will be Ferrari’s hybrid monster, the revolutionary track-ready FFX-K supercar, and stunning it looks too.

Heading for lights out and go, go, go, on the 22nd of April, Assetto Corsa will feature over 90 high-performance vehicles including the Pagani Zonda R, the Ferrari LaFerrari, Mercedes C9 and the McLaren 650S GT3. You’ll be able to race these around over 20 different track configurations, including Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps, Monza and the Nurburgring.

With single and multiplayer racing and customisable race weekends, Assetto Corsa may finally be that new player in the field that can challenge the likes of Forza and Project CARS.

Assetto Corsa is due to release on the 22nd of April. I can’t wait.
