    Following the recent screenshot reveal of the new Group B Audi Quattro taken ingame on a new Scottish fictional circuit, Marco Massarutto has again sneaked out a few shots of the latest track due to hit Assetto Corsa next month.

    Titled 'Highlands', the new track coming to Assetto Corsa will be a fictional circuit containing four different configurations suitable for a variety of different kinds of racing disciplines. In the image reveal today Massarutto has confirmed the track will be added, for free, to Assetto Corsa sometime towards the end of February 2017.

    Unfortunately little is know about this new circuit at the stage, aside from the fact the layout is of a fictional design, the scenery is based in Scotland, and the new track will feature four distinct configurations suitable for endurance style racing, street car event, high powered performance supercar style battles and a smaller, tighter layout for lower horsepower specification vehicles.

    With Massarutto confirming a late February launch it would be fair to assume the recently previewed Audi Quattro Group B rally car will also be released at the same time, quite possibly alongside a new build for the game.

    Assetto Corsa is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC right now.

    Four configurations are a very good idea.

    C'mon Assetto, let's get real. Give us some real circuits. About time. Even if circuits not laser scanned, better than nothing.

    Uhhh put warm clothes on Kunos if the pcars2 trailer (unofficial) is true. Eye candy all around just for the console boys. I guess AC2 is in starting position but before anounce give us the 2nd placed 991 RSR

    Can't find a reason to **** on the free car so I decide to come to this thread to whine about the free track.
    Hmm where do I start…

    Usual boring comments about the circuit being not real (and not laser scanned)...
    As always complaints about a free content...
    First world problems... :D

    With Project Cars2 announced and Dirt 2 coming, there's nothing like some competition to stir the pot with Assetto Corsa and get everyone performing their best!

    hmmm... hard to tell how it's gonna look like, but probably not mine kind of thing, same way how I didn't driven Black cat coutnry

    this ain't NeedForSpeed of Forza Horizon I though, yeah it's free, but if the same effort went into a payware, I would be more happy about it

    It's a reference to your avatar. As in his headlights are just stickers not real headlights.

    Guess the track fits well in the non-racecar lineup of AC.
    And you can't argue about free content anyways.

    I don't know if Kunos should release non laser-scanned tracks.
    Leave the non-scanned tracks to the modders (and AC has a huge modding base!) and Kunos should release laser scanned tracks only.

    I reckon this track looks a step up from BCC (which I wasn't a massive fan of), and I think will suit some of the lower powered street cars which have felt a little homeless to me so far in AC.
