The news and content continues to flow from Gamescom 2012. BsimRacing have posted a 13 minute video of Assetto Corsa gameplay. Kunos look to be checking the boxes one at a time
Assetto Corsa exceeded all of my expectations. My first impression when just looking at the overall graphical style got me really exited. It just looks the works. Overall external car physics (Movement) seemed to have the correct speed and sense of weight. Shadings and Dept of field where spot on.
When i finally stept into the rig, and got to do a few laps with the BMW Z4 GT3 i did not know what to expect of the actual physics of the game. It very soon became clear that this must be one of the best compromises between Sim and Fun i came across in a long time. The car behaves as you would expect, and you really feel connected to the track. Details like braking feel, oversteer and understeer seemed so natural
Is Assetto Corsa shaping up to the dark horse that is going to redefine what a modern sim racing game should be? Skeptics may recall issues with NetKar Pro but Kunos certainly look to be checking the boxes this time around. I’m excited, how about you?
