Respecting what is now a very long tradition at Kunos Simulazioni, we are glad to introduce as part of our latest DLC a significant update to the overall build of Assetto Corsa. Reaching version 1.9, we welcome another piece of free bonus content, the brand new and recently unveiled Porsche Panamera G2 Turbo, the latest luxury saloon model manufactured by Porsche. As you can see it in the complete changelog below, the update continues the process of bringing general improvements to the core game in all areas, incorporating the precious feedback and suggestions of a community that is becoming larger day after day. One of the most relevant upgrades of this build involves the audio environment, taking advantage of the updating of FMod libraries:

the development team has reworked FMod interaction within the game, optimizing memory and CPU usage and improving the entire sfx engine, resulting in a much better sound environment and immersion.

If you wish to learn more about it, please visit the following URL: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/fmod-official-project-v1-9.37827/

In addition to the plethora of audio updates, other improvements extend to introducing the official Sparco licence with brand new driver suit and glove textures and a reworked texture assignment system, race ending, live Time Table leaderboard in the pits and other additions to the Lap Time board, splits and Anti-Wrecker protection in Multiplayer mode, updating all GT3 cars to tyre model 10, AI improvements and numerous other improvements across the entire game engine, including graphics as well as physics.

Assetto Corsa 1.9 welcomes the first of the three free bonus Porsche cars that will be released within 2016, introducing the Porsche Panamera Turbo, a car that with Porsche test and development driver Lars Kern at the wheel completed a lap around the 20.832-kilometre long Nürburgring Nordschleife in only seven minutes and 39 seconds. The new Porsche Panamera reconciles two contrasting characteristics more than ever before: the performance of a genuine sports car and the comfort of a luxury saloon. It is a Gran Turismo that has been rethought and realigned. The second generation of the Panamera is advancing to become a performance icon of the luxury class.

We are also glad to announce that the historic version of the Silverstone circuit is finally available as free bonus content for all Assetto Corsa users, a remarkable addition that will please all fans of historic content already available in Assetto Corsa. The classic Silverstone is a circuit that perfectly matches some of the new legendary Porsche cars included in the Porsche Pack Vol.1. The 1967 version of the track was used between 1952 and 1974, with the overall layout kept largely unaltered for nearly 38 years. This piece of motorsport history hosted fierce competition between racing heroes such as Graham Hill, Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart and Jackie Ickx.

Assetto Corsa 1.9 is available on PC Steam today, and on PS4 and XBox One in November. Please read the changelog to learn more about the overall list of updates.

We kindly inform those who might be interested in purchasing the Season Pass that it is available for purchase.

Those who purchase the Season Pass will receive 3 add-on packs (7 cars each) for a single discounted price. The packs include a total of 21 Porsche unique car models, featuring all of the new 2016 Porsche line-up from both the car maker’s production and legendary motorsport departments.

Assetto Corsa Porsche Pack Volume 1 – Includes 7 cars

Assetto Corsa Porsche Pack Volume 2 – Includes 7 cars in 10 total versions

Assetto Corsa 1.4

Graphics
Several features related to post processing effects have been refined, including the FXAA filter that has been significantly improved using Kunos’ own shader. The new build also introduces a new reflection rendering system: these feature result in a substantial improvement in how the cars look. The HDR algorithm now matches real-life photographic references, resulting in much more natural lighting and reflections.

Build 1.4 introduces also a new font rendering system for dashboards, bringing about in a higher level of graphics and definition. Digital instruments have been updated for all available cars, while the exaggerated motion blur effect for some camera modes has been eliminated.

Artificial intelligence
The new build introduces a new algorithm to improve the ability for AI drivers to stick to the intended racing line, resulting in better behaviour in close racing. The code related to braking algoritghm is now able to understand and use locked inside tyre for FWD.

Multiplayer
The antilag/antiwarp system has been vastly improved, introducing a new netcode prediction algorithm that is now used to handle missing packets that used to generate warps and lags, providing a more stable and consistent online experience.

Audio
Since the first Dream Pack, a lot of effort has been put into the audio, especially for exterior sounds. The Dream Pack 3 is no exception with each car having its distinctive note, from the little mighty 500 Assetto Corse to the screaming DFV V8 engine of the legendary Lotus 72d. Furthermore, “old” cars are also undergoing a sound revamp: the 1.4 update will bring to you new exterior sounds for the BMW M3 e30 DTM/Group A.

Assetto Corsa Dream Pack 3
This package adds the Brands Hatch circuit and eight new awesome cars in a total of nine different versions to the Assetto Corsa racing game. Get it today and join the most thrilling virtual driving experience ever!

The Circuit of Brands Hatch in Assetto Corsa
The development of this famous and challenging circuit required six months of work, making Brands Hatch the fourth circuit added to Assetto Corsa during 2015, after the legendary Nordschleife, Zandvoort and Barcelona. As showed in the following video, Kunos Simulazioni development team has reproduced the track paying attention to every single detail and reference point used by real drivers, thanks to an extensive use of Laserscan technology, guaranteeing maximum accuracy. The resulting precision combined with the advanced physics model of Assetto Corsa offers an unprecedented driving experience blurring the difference between virtual racing and reality.

The Cars
Similarly to previous Dream Packs, the cars included in this third package were selected through user polls, with gamers voting for their favourite manufacturers and models on our website. The pack includes a perfect mix of vehicles of different classes, types and periods, ready to satisfy our fans’ hunger for racing.
