Assetto Corsa update to 0.65 on Steam Early Access adds McLaren MP4-12C GT3


Assetto Corsa Early Access v.0.6.5 has been released today. This version enables the first test of engine damage as well as lot’s of other features and new contents! Although still under development and balancing, gamers can experience engine damages if they downshift too aggressively and over rev the engine, or if they keep the turbo pressure too high on cars that permit turbo boost adjustments ingame (have a go at the BMW Z4 Drift and the new BMW 1M Stage 3 and experiment with keys 1-0 while driving..). This version also includes the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 race car: this is the first McLaren car built for FIA GT series racing since the McLaren F1 GTR finished production in 1997. The 12C GT3 is based on the new MP4-12C high-performance sports car and a team of engineers, designers and test drivers with vast experience in Formula 1 and GT racing has been assembled to undertake the process of adapting the carbon chassis-based 12C to racing specification.

We also included two upgrades for existing cars. The very capable BMW 1M Stage 3, with extra power, adjustable turbo boost, shorter gearbox and much improved suspension, and the amazingly balanced Lotus Evora Stage 2 with a new compressor pulley for a bit of additional
engine power and a much more track focused suspension.

We have a new friends leaderboard app. Now, gamers can directly compete against their friends on Steam steam and reset your scores ingame, everytime you like. This app is not intended to go against the amazing leaderboards created by 3rd party modders, as it doesn’t
checks for cheats or assists, but it is a leaderboard for you and for your friends you trust. It gives you the opportunity to compete against each other and “reset the scores” when you want to start again. It will keep laptimes as well as scores from drift and time attack modes, all synchronised with Steam leaderboard system.
