Comme à son habitude, Kunos Simulazioni réserve toujours, à cette période, une annonce surprise pour Assetto Corsa et, cette année, il s'agit d'un contrat de licence pour la reproduction de modèles Lamborghini dans la simulation !
Le studio a illustré cette annonce et les nouveautés à venir à l'aide d'une vidéo :
Cela signifie que la célèbre marque italienne se rajoute à la longue liste de partenaires avec Audi, Toyota, Nissan, Alfa Romeo et Ford, ainsi que d'autres surprises pas encore annoncées.
Concernant le premier DLC (le Dream Pack), il s'agira, comme vous le savez, d'un DLC comportant le circuit du Nürburgring, intégralement scanné au laser, accompagné par 10 voitures exclusives, que sont l'Alfa Romeo 4c, 155 DTM et GTA, la McLaren P1 et F1 GTR, la Nissan GT-R Nismo 2014 GT3, la GM Corvette C7R GTE, la Mercedes 190 DTM et Sauber-C9 et la BMW M235iRacing VLN.
Durant les prochaines semaines, ils communiqueront sur l'avancée du DLC, la date de sortie et l'annonce des précommandes.
L'annonce officielle (en anglais) :
Dear AC followers,
this has been a really great year, and we want to finish at the best possible way. We are proud to announce the official license of Lamborghini Automobili in Assetto Corsa, with a selection of the most beautiful, powerful and iconic models of the prestigious Italian Car Manufacturer. With the addition of Lamborghini, Audi, Toyota, Nissan, Alfa Romeo, Ford and many other contents, Assetto Corsa will bring you the best selection of GT, sportcars and prototypes ever seen in a racing simulation.
Reproducing the cars of an iconic brand like Lamborghini Automobili is a huge honour for us, as well as a very important message to our fans: the decision to make such a huge investment after Assetto Corsa has been released, is the result of our strong believe in this project and in this community. It also means that in the mid future you can expect developments for Assetto Corsa that go well beyond the generic "additional contents".
As said before, the version 1.0 of Assetto Corsa signifies not just the long-term achievement but also a new start.
Our team is already working on contents and features that are scheduled for release during 2015. Some of those have yet to be unveiled, but we are excited about them and confident that we will amaze you once again. Finally, with the inclusion of the Lamborghini license, about fifty additional cars officially licensed will be included in Assetto Corsa during 2015!
You probably already know all about the first additional package as it is the most anticipated by the community, and we bet you want to know more about it: the Dream pack, featuring the Nordschleife official circuit, for the first time fully based on Laserscan technology, will be a total blast! Your racing experience will be elevated to a brand new level. The production and testing of this package has required a huge work, resources and manpower, but we are sure you will appreciate it, turn by turn, curb by curb. Starting next week, we'll share with all our fans the work in progress and the news about the state of completion of the track and the ten awesome cars included in the package, namely the Alfa Romeo's 4c, 155 DTM and GTA, the McLaren's P1 and F1 GTR, the Nissan GT-R Nismo 2014 GT3, the GM Corvette C7R GTE, the Mercedes 190 DTM and Sauber-C9 and the BMW M235iRacing VLN. We will also inform you about pre-order, price and release date.
Someone says that good things need time. Thank you for your patience and your support, as always all our efforts are focused to improve your Assetto Corsa experience even more.
Welcome, Lamborghini. Welcome, 2015!
