Assetto Corsa Gets a Car Swap In Porsche Vol. Pack 3

Assetto Corsa has the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 set to drop next week and those that were eagerly awaiting to rip around the Tarmac in the 2017 911 RSR, will have to wait until sometime in January 2017.

Yeah, its’ pretty disappointing not to get to try out that new model of 911 in Assetto Corsa but, there will be something else in its place.  Duh duh duuuhhh!!!…the 911 Turbo S will be put in the 3rd pack in place of that 2017 911 RSR!  It’s probably a good assumption that this car was planned for future release, so just think of this as a massive engine swap…with wheels, tires, drive-train, body…you get the idea.

Kunos sites that the 2017 911 RSR just isn’t quite ready to deploy into Assetto Corsa.  Turns out they need a little more time with the R&D folks over at Porsche.  That January 2017 free release date doesn’t seem too far away though.

We’re aware that the Porsche 911 RSR 2017 is one of the most sought after cars in the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC and we know how excited the community is after seeing it unveiled just a few weeks ago. Right now, we’re working incredibly closely with the Porsche R&D department in order to reproduce this car the best we can!

The 911 RSR 2017 is not an upgrade of the previous model, but a totally new car. As we want to ensure the best experience possible from this amazing model, we unfortunately need to spend a bit more time on it, meaning it won’t be released as part of the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC next week.

We know this will come as a disappointment to our community but please be rest assured, the wait will be worth it! However, we wanted to find a way to apologize for the delay…

Since we announced the Porsche Program, we noticed that some players were disappointed with the absence of the 911 Turbo S. Today, we’re pleased to announce that the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC will now include the 911 Turbo S!

As for the 911 RSR 2017, this will be available as a FREE upgrade of the Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC in January!

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the thrilling performance of the iconic 911 Turbo S, while we work to complete the 911 RSR 2017. Not only will you have the best ending to 2016, but we’ll kick start 2017 with an incredible car!
