The 2023 Steam Summer Sale is here, and great deals on racing games and simulators are part of it once again: Until July 13th, Sim racers and racing game enthusiats have the opportunity to save up to 90 % on some titles - and you can find out what the best deals are in our list!

Steam has an enormous selection of titles available on its platform, and only a few exceptions for racing games and sims are not available. As a result, a large number of games, sims and their DLC have massive discounts available to expand or complete your collection.

The value for your money is almost unbelievable for titles like Assetto Corsa, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Automobilista 2, DiRT Rally 2.0 and many more - which excludes F1 23 and F1 22, so Formula 1 fans might have to wait for the Steam Autumn or Winter Sale later this year. You can find our list including the European store prices below!

Thank you very much RD for this round-up, it's very helpful.

I'm disappointed with AMS2 Season Pass though - I don't have any DLC and was really looking forward to getting this pass which historically has been 50% off, but seeing it at 30% has made me hold back for now. I need to get back in game and reassess if I'm willing to spend that extra or just be happy with that I currently have. I had a quick go on their new Formula Junior's as part of the beta and didn't find it as great as others were making out - the slidey physics (wet track feeling on a dry track) wasn't an appealing seller of AMS2. It's a shame that they not only had an unenticing sale price but they are also halfway between old vs new physics too so it's a lot of money to drop on what feels like a half complete / work-in-progress title right now. I might even look at AMS1 DLC instead if it's worth it.

I was considering buying content for rF2 for the first time, but the prices are too high and doesn't have a particularly inviting track selection either. I know it's highly rated just for the driving experience, but if I don't like the tracks it offers then handling isn't important / relevant.

I know this article is about the Steam sale, but I think it's worth a reminder of Raceroom's 50% off Sale (with extended free testing of presumably all content). I bought their Season Pass and I've had some great racing with some tough AI that's made me step up my game to hang in with.

As for other titles, and not that my opinion means dick, but I'd still recommend AC, ACC, & Dirt Rally 2 for the steal of a price.

A couple more games that this article doesn't state: WRC 10 is the same price (£13.99) as WRC Generations (the former apparently the better of the two) and the recently released Isle of Man TT 3 is 20% off at £31.99. While on about biking, the mentioned Ride 4 can be a lot of fun (if / when you master the somewhat tricky handling)!

AC Ultimate Edition for 8$ is one of the best deals in sim racing. Plus then you can race in the Race Department (premium members) AC racing club :)

Also BeamNG rarely goes on sale, $5 off is the best you'll probably get on steam. Great game, continual free updates only making it better :thumbsup:

Thanks for the roundup
 
Where do I get Automobilista 2 + Automobilista Ultimate Edition for 11,24 € (63%) ?

I only find Automobilista + Season Pass for all DLC and Automobilista 2 for 25,11 € (63%)

Is this country specific ?

I was pondering that myself about AMS2. 30% is ok, but it is still a bit expensive for now.
 
WRC Generations has the hidden gem of a extra deal right now. If you buy it with all DLC, you're eligible for a code to redeem WRC+ All Live Access (the equivalent of F1 TV but WRC, ERC and WRX instead) for 3 months of subscription. The game with all the DLC is 23 EUR/USD, while a month of WRC+ access is priced at 12 EUR. So you can think of this as buying WRC+ access for two months and get another month plus a game to play.

The redeem offer only lasts until 31th August 2023 while the code is redeemable until December 2023, so this summer sale is probably the last time to take the advantage of this deal. Non steam users and past buyers are also available if you haven't had the code, but for more info regarding eligibility and how to get the WRC+ codes please check yourself in https://wrcgenerations.offres-facility.fr/

The game itself might not be as stellar on the physics and pacenotes as DR2.0 but there's still plenty of fun with good career mode, codriver mode, lots of stages and plenty of new and legendary rally cars as well.

Raceroom season pass? Where did you see that one? I'd be very much interested in it.
Cheers.

Sorry, bad use of terminology on my part. I meant that I'd bought their Premium Pack, gaining me all content up to the current date only. Kinda a season pass though :whistling:

No. Not even close.

AMS2 had a season pass for 2020-2022. During that time you got everything they released. The RRR Premium Pack is not even remotely close to that.
