As a result, the racing simulation is even more immersive and visually appealing, promises the development studio, which confidently declares: “ACC was already the best GT3 simulation on the market. With the updated graphics engine, new gameplay functions and improvements, and the 2021 and open category, we are ready to take our lead in 2022 and defend it with new content that we are continuously working on.
But that is not all. Kunos is known for providing an industry leading physics engine and for taking an uncompromising approach to simulating vehicles as realistically as possible. Because of this, we never stop improving our physics engine. The Assetto Corsa Competizione PC update V1.8 introduces the next major evolution of our physics model with massive improvements in every aspect of the tire simulation as well as many other new features. “
