The GT World Challenge Powered by AWS joined the fast-growing world of sim racing with the release of its first official game, Assetto Corsa Competizione, which gives players an opportunity to experience the unique thrill of high-speed GT3 competition.
Produced by Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games, Assetto Corsa Competizione sets the standard in driving realism with the highest quality graphics and photo-realistic weather conditions.
From sprint races to endurance contests, players will be able to get behind the wheel of GT cars from all manufacturers represented in the 2020 season, with each reproduced to an outstanding level of detail.
There is also the opportunity to compete in different moments of the iconic Total 24 Hours of Spa, with a dynamic weather system recreating the famously unpredictable climate at the Ardennes track.
Laser scan technology ensures that every circuit and car is recreated with the highest level of precision, with the smallest details perfectly matching the real world, while multi-channel audio sampling of actual GT cars places players at trackside.
What’s more, motion capture technology re-creates the movements 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.
For online play, a highly intelligent ranking system evaluates individual performance and driving behaviour to reward the most skilled competitors and promote fairness. Efficient matchmaking functions ensure players compete with opponents of similar skill level and can easily find and join races online.
Leaderboards allow players to compare single-lap performance with virtual drivers from around the world using the same car, circuit and weather conditions. Career, Championship and Free Play modes are also available, offering a customised racing experience for all ability levels.
