a free update drops for Assetto Corsa Competizione today, the 1.1 update and it brings official 2019 Blancpain GT Series’ official season vehicles to life for free. It also adds the teams and Zandvoort Circuit for free as well. The free update delivers six brand new car models including the Audi R8 LMS EVO, Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO, AMR V8 Vantage GT3, Honda NSX GT3 EVO, Porsche 991 II GT3 R, and McLaren 720S GT3.
In addition to this, the update improves the game and adds major features, such as a custom modification to Unreal Engine 4, courtesy of KUNOS Simulazioni. This modification allows for triple monitor set up so that three screens can have individual settings, as in the previous Assetto Corsa. Pit Stop animations have also been implemented and show full scene pit crew operations on the car such as refueling and tire replacement. Additionally, a new showroom is available on the vehicle selection page, allowing for zoom and rotation of the car models. The 1.1 update also brings a large number of UI upgrades and performance optimizations.
