Kunos Simulazioni have kept very quiet regarding Assetto Corsa EVO - but now, the most-anticipated racing simulation of 2024 has a Steam page including screenshots and the first bits of info.

When it comes to eagerly anticipated racing sims set to launch in 2024, there is no way around Assetto Corsa EVO. Information on the successor to Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione has been sparse thus far, as Kunos Simulazioni had only revealed the name of the upcoming game alongside the release of the Nürburgring-Nordschleife for ACC.

Now, sim racers finally get some more nuggets of information, as well as a number of screenshots: The Assetto Corsa EVO page in the Steam store is live, and it is not just there for fans to wishlist the game. Instead, several screenshots as well as the system requirements for the PC version can be found there as well, allowing fans to draw the first conclusions about the sim.

Circuits & Cars in AC EVO​

Many had been wondering about whether or not AC EVO would be purely focused on racing cars, or if it would be a return to the broad spectrum of content available in the original Assetto Corsa. The new Steam page answers this question somewhat, with most of the cars that are shown (in part, anyway) being road-going vehicles. The only exception is a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992), while manufacturers show include Hyundai, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo and Alpine.

In addition to the first batch of vehicles, a few racing circuits can also be spotted among the screenshots. The most obvious - and possibly most important for many sim racers - is the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Alongside the infamous Green Hell, the Autodromo di Imola with its characteristic kerbs at Variante Alta is visible. Other shots are harder to make out - we have a feeling that they could show Oulton Park or Brands Hatch, but be sure to let us know your guesses in the comments!

Aside from the screenshots, more info on AC Evo itself is included in the short description text. Kunos state that the sim will inlcude "different classes spanning across yeas of motoring history. From road cars, classics, hypercars, and race cars. The most iconic representation of the automotive and motorsport world."

"Proprietary, high-performance engine"​

This is achieved via a new, "proprietary, high-performance photorealistic engine", which will also support VR and triple screens from the get-go, confirming Kunos Founder Marco Massarutto's statement from a few weeks ago. Players can also look forward to a "new mathematical model" that "meticulously simulates asphalt performacnce in different dynamic weather conditions that guarantees an authentic and realistic experience which will redefine the standards that have made Assetto Corsa globally renowned."

A lot of superlatives, then, but sim racers would likely be underwhelmed by anything but new technology aimed at being the industry leader. To run this tech, it does not appear that a NASA-style supercomputer will be necessary, however, as the system requirements on the Steam page indicate.

Unfortunately, the Steam page does not indicate anything other than '2024' as for the release date - but with this first real bunch of information, sim racers will be all the more eager - and probably impatient - to find out more about Assetto Corsa EVO.

Its also interesting what is not there in the description, e.g. any mention of multiplayer competitive stuff. Not that it wont be there in the product but at least it does not seem part of the main pitch. They are really going for assetto corsa with better graphics and rain night+day seemingly.

Well, really the description says absolutely nothing about the title, other than that it will have a diverse range of cars and buzz words about how great of a simulation it will be. They will of course reveal new details as we get closer to release.

LET'S GOOOOO! I already uninstalled FH5 since Modern Horizons started; hopefully this game will continue on the huge modding scene that AC started since 2014, but I'm also scared this may turn out like Cities Skylines 2, modding wise. Hopefully Kunos doesn't disappoint. From the screenshots alone, looks like rain is baked in the simulation immediately.
 
if the new evo asseto looks worse graphically than what the assetto corsa polished by mods looks like now, then it will be a shame
 
No mention of modding anywhere (I don't expect it on Steam but I would have thought there'd be an answer to the question by now) - I think this must be the moment any hope of the game supporting modding in any meaningful way is lost.

It's got night, it's got rain, it's going to have a hodge-podge of a car list with no focus to it. Looking forward to finding out more but I am not optimistic.

Patience, of course they are not going to mention that immediately. Wait for release and at some point if modding will be permitted, they will say as such.
 
I expected for Kunos to learn something with their mod community and give some focus to free roaming right out the release. So... seems like AC Classic will keep on reign for some more years.

Was AC ever actually marketed as being moddable? Not as far as I remember.

I’d imagine ACE would, hopefully, be the same. All marketing focusing on the core game but conveniently all the content is unencrypted and an SDK folder exists in the game files.

As for the screenshots… well I think there’s only one way to describe them.

Unfortunately, after Aris Vasilakos left, my expectations are pretty low. If it ain't broke, don't fix it—just keep it updated with meaningful improvements. But it feels like the new team has the same issue as Rennsport... every morning they must be asking themselves: What's our goal? Are we brave enough to admit that without mod support, we're doomed from the start?
