Kunos Simulazioni has released an update to Assetto Corsa Competizione for PC, bringing us several improvements and hotfixes in addition to liveries for the 2021 GT World Challenge Europe race series.

Highlights of this update include a new steering wheel rotation meter in the HUD, tweaks and improvements in the menu screens, and minor fixes to select cars. Further, the update includes new liveries for not only the 2021 GTWCH EU series, but also bonus liveries for the BMW Sim Time Attack and Logitech McLaren G Challenge series.

There has been a lot of speculation in the sim racing community as to what future projects Kunos and the Assetto Corsa series may bring to us, but for now it appears at least some of the resources within the Italian game developer’s team are still dedicated to their existing titles. In case you missed it, check out our interview with Kunos Co-founder Marco Massarutto, in which he hints at the company’s priorities for current and future projects.

The update for ACC is the second newsworthy event this week for fans of the AC titles, following closely behind the release of a new official car for Assetto Corsa. The 2020 Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO became available for owners of Assetto Corsa who registered for the Ferrari ESports series.
