    Assetto Corsa Interview Free Content.jpg
    We spoke at length with Stefano Casillo of Kunos Simulazioni about Assetto Corsa, some new free content incoming and all things racing...

    The Sim Racing Expo was a wonderful opportunity for sim racers, developers, hardware manufacturers and the media to get together to celebrate the wonderful hobby we call sim racing. Thanks to the great access and atmosphere of the event we had the opportunity to chat with one of the key figures behind Assetto Corsa, Stefano Casillo, and he was more than happy to give us an insight into the behind the scenes workings at Kunos, plus revealing some exciting new free content coming to Assetto Corsa in the near future.

    You can check out the interview below:


    Originally planned as part of a standard paid DLC, Kunos scheduled the highly anticipated laser scanned version of Laguna Seca to release alongside a pack of new performance road cars for the simulation. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances the launch of Laguna hit one or two delays against the original schedule, slipping to much further in the calendar year that was the intention when the announcement was first hinted at several months ago.

    In something of a generous gesture from Kunos, the popular Italian developers have decided to release both circuit and accompanying cars to the base game for free, bringing with it a very popular drivers circuit and six new cars to the title.

    The confirmed free bonus pack DLC will contain:
    • Laguna Seca Circuit
    • Alfa Rome Giulia QV
    • Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale
    • Lamborghini Sesto Elemento
    • Lamborghini Huracan Performante
    • Maserati Quattroporte
    • Pagani Huayra BC
    No exact release date has been confirmed by Kunos, however it is expected that players will be in receipt of the new content before the end of 2017.

    If you missed it earlier, don't forget to check out our previous interview with Stefano where we talk about the new update and Ferrari Celebration DLC.

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

    How are the Xbox players supposed to get the update if the game doesn't connect? Will Kunos ship them a disc?

    Looking forward to the Alfas, the Lambos and the new track. Specially this last thing, the game does need more official tracks.

    The car selection in this pack really doesn't do it for me, but it's a guaranteed "buy" decision for me because of Laguna Seca. Really did not see that one coming, but pleasantly surprised to see it on the list! :thumbsup:

    Would be nice if we get more DLC down the line. I don't mind paying for more of them in AC as Kunos always do a decent job with DLCs.

    Nice to hear at least a mention from someone. :laugh:

    But I must say...it's back to fairly stable lobbies, private rooms, and great racing for xbox online. :thumbsup:

    IF it works, or rather WHEN it works, it's the best on the box.

    That is a most generous gesture...
    That's a very nice thank you indeed, because I think most people, including myself.. would've bought that DLC just for Laguna.
    Thanks Kunos, Like your style :thumbsup:
    And obviously your passion for all things automotive. Top Job!

    great street cars for free :inlove:
    Still hoping for a Forza-like street car roster in AC in several years (i can wait). Nothing better then doing your own Top Gear / Grand Tour stuff with proper physics :)

    Actually, everything was wiped. Career, setups, wheel settings, etc. But the good news is that setups now save. :thumbsup:
