Description: Assetto Corsa features an advanced DirectX 11 graphics engine that recreates an immersive environment, dynamic lighting and realistic materials and surfaces. The advanced physics engine is being designed to provide a very realistic driving experience, including features and aspects of real cars, never seen on any other racing simulator such as tyre flat spots, heat cycles including graining and blistering, very advanced aerodynamic simulation with active movable aerodynamics parts controlled in real-time by telemetry input channels, hybrid systems with KERS and energy recovery simulation. Extremely detailed with single-player and multiplayer options, exclusive licenced cars reproduced with the best accuracy possible, thanks to the official cooperation of Car Manufacturers. ASSETTO CORSA has been developed at the KUNOS Simulazioni R&D office, located just inside the international racing circuit of Vallelunga, allowing the team to develop the game with the cooperation of real-world racing drivers and racing teams.
The only downside is that most of the cars in this game are locked behind paywalls meaning you will need to pay £100 upwards to get anywhere in the game, especially if you plan to play online. Also, there are far better racing games out there that offer far more for far less. Don’t get me wrong, this is still worth a look and a beautiful game, it is just too pricy for me to recommend it to everyone.
