Nürburgring Nordschleife Announced for Assetto Corsa Competizione

In a post to the Nürburgring’s social media pages, the Nordschleife has been officially announced as coming to Assetto Corsa Competizione.

Back in the summer, during the SRO Motorsport yearly Press Conference, rumours among the sim racing community began to swell concerning the Nürburgring Nordschleife and Assetto Corsa Competizione.

In fact, the SRO Motorsports Group announced that it would integrate the Nurburgring 24 Hours into its Intercontinental GT Challenge. This lead sim racers to wonder if the SRO’s official game, Assetto Corsa Competizione, could feature the Green Hell.

All posts have since been deleted. But here is a screenshot of the Instagram post.

Well, several months of speculation later and we have our answer. A tweet posted by the Nürburgring’s social media team reveals the circuit in ACC. The post reads, “We’re looking forward to experiencing the legendary Nordschleife and the 24hNBR atmosphere at Assetto Corsa Competizione!”

It seems then that ACC will soon receive an update including the 20.83 km circuit. However, there are many more additions Kunos is yet to deliver. So one might suggest that this content drop will be larger than any other before it.


In fact, a year before the SRO Nurburgring 24 announcement, the 2022 SRO Press Conference mentioned the addition of GT2 machinery to ACC. Over a year and a quarter since the announcement, fans are still awaiting these amateur-centric GT cars.

With GT2 racers also joining the Nurburgring 24 Hour fray this year as part of the experimental GTX class, could we see a selection of cars release alongside the Nordschleife for ACC? Only time will tell.

As yet, no date is announced for the circuit release. Furthermore, we do not know if the track will come with the GT2 pack. However, with development preparing for an “Assetto Corsa 2” launch next year, one must assume a December release is on the cards.

Great news! Though I feel like they should've added it like two or three years ago. Surely does bring ACC to completion regarding its content.

They better port these into AC2 when it comes out
 
I was wondering why they had been so silent of late and also never delivered the skinpack for the 2023 season fully, usually there was an update at the end of summer with the spa24 skins. Maybe they will now lump it all together, or maybe this was just hot air as someone saw fit to remove it?

They work hard on AC2.

I recently took a break from online racing in ACC as I got tired of being involved in a crash in almost every single race and 90% of the time through no fault of my own.
Nords is great, but it'll be a complete and utter mess online, given the tightness, technicality and complexity of the track.
So yeah, people who have asked for it for years will buy it in droves and then leave it a week or so later I recon (aside from hotlappers and offline players).
