Con puntualità svizzera, la Kunos Simulazioni ha annunciato il suo nuovo Assetto Corsa Competizione, titolo con licenza ufficiale del prestigioso campionato Blancpain GT Series (dedicato alle vetture GT3) previsto in uscita per la prossima estate. AC Competizione possiamo quasi definirlo come una evoluzione all'ennesima potenza dell'attuale Assetto Corsa: il nuovo simulatore sarà dotato del potente engine grafico Unreal Engine 4, che ci metterà quindi a disposizione anche il meteo con tanto di pioggia e le gare in notturna, come potete notare dallo spettacolare trailer di lancio qui sotto.
Naturalmente, essendo il nuovo software una profonda evoluzione del precedente, presenterà anche migliorie importanti, come ad esempio un sistema di ranking per il multiplayer cosi da garantire una migliore esperienza nelle gare online. Correte a questo link del forum per commenti e discussioni.

Assetto Corsa Competizione will be at the Misano World Circuit, during the Blancpain GT Serie race weekend, offering to fans the opportunity to be the first to play a preview version of the game – using dedicated driving cockpits installed in the paddock area. Players will also have the chance to share their impressions with the development team! Additional details will be available soon.
Assetto Corsa Competizione, the new official game of the Blancpain GT Series, an official grand touring racing series, named after world-renowned Swiss watch manufacture Blancpain and organized by SRO Motorsports Group, will be speeding onto Steam Early Access this summer.
Featuring an extraordinary level of simulation quality that allows players to experience the unique atmosphere of this GT3 Series, players can compete against official drivers, teams, cars and circuits with the highest level of accuracy and attention to detail.
Taking full advantage of Unreal Engine 4, Assetto Corsa Competizione will ensure the highest quality rendering with photorealistic weather conditions and graphics to reach a new standard in driving realism and immersion racing. Players will experience highspeed torque as they get behind the wheel of luxurious speedsters including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens and many other prestigious GT cars reproduced with an outstanding level of detail. Motion capture technology is used to create the animations of mechanics and drivers in an even more realistic fashion and guarantee a high level of player engagement during races, pit stops and driver changes.
In the final version of the game, players can expect advanced multiplayer functionality with Assetto Corsa Competizione, including a ranking system which will evaluate individual performance and driving behavior to reward the most virtuous drivers and promote fair play in online competitions.
