Assetto Corsa » Assetto Corsa Competizione DLC Guide 2022
This is our ultimate DLC guide for Assetto Corsa Competizione. Here we show you what each DLC brings to the game and what the plans are for upcoming 2022 DLC.
As mentioned above, we already know of two new DLC packs which are releasing for Assetto Corsa Competizione in 2022. The first is the Challengers pack which launches on 23rd March 2022. The second DLC for 2022 is a new track pack which is scheduled for launch in the summer of 2022.
Assetto Corsa Competizione came out way back in May 2019, although it seems like it has been with us a lot longer. In that time ACC has risen to become the go-to GT3 and GT4 racing simulator of choice for many.
It features some of the most immersive and realistic GT racing on offer from any racing sim. And it’s the only place where you can race all of the official GT World Challenge cars and tracks. It may offer limited cars to race with (only GT3 and GT4 cars) but it is without a doubt one of the best overall racing sims available.
And since its launch in the middle of 2019, it has received a steady stream of downloadable content and DLC packs. The first came around 8 months after its launch and introduced a series of new tracks along with a selection of new car liveries.
Subsequent ACC DLC packs such as the GT4 pack DLC introduced an entirely new series of cars to race with. Now we’re in 2022, almost a full three years since it’s launch, the developers of ACC are still releasing DLC packs introducing new content to the game.
Below is a DLC guide for every DLC pack that has been launched so far for Assetto Corsa Competizione. I’ve also included the new DLC packs that we know are coming our way in 2022.
Before you go any further, if you’re not racing ACC with a racing wheel, check out our ultimate guide on the best racing wheels for Assetto Corsa Competizione in 2022.
Release date – 4th February 2020
Price – £12.49
The first DLC that launched for Assetto Corsa Competizione back in February 2020 was the Intercontinental GT Pack. This first DLC aimed to add all of the content that you need to race in the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge.
This included four brand new tracks, Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit, Suzuka Circuit, Weathertech ®️ Raceway Laguna Seca, Mount Panorama Circuit. These new tracks have been seen before in other racing sims, with Suzuka and Laguna Seca appearing in the majority of racing games that have been released over the past ten years.
Mount Panorama (Bathurst) has also been seen in many racing sims across the year and is one of the trickiest circuits to master. Kyalami is possibly the most unusual of the four circuits, as it hasn’t appeared in many racing titles. Despite this, it is possibly my favourite track of the bunch due to its combination of fast and technical sections and the elevation change across the lap.
You can see a video of me racing the Kyalami track in a GT4 wet night race in ACC below.
Along with the four new tracks listed above, the Intercontinental pack also introduced a whole host of new teams, drivers and car liveries to the game. These new car liveries, teams and drivers all filter into their respective cars in the GT3 class and are playable across all game modes.
In total, there are 30 new teams, 50 new drivers including the legendary Mika Hakkinen, and 45 brand new real-world liveries, some of which ran in the 2019 Intercontinental GT Challenge.
Release date – 15th July 2020
Price – £17.99
The second DLC pack that launched for Assetto Corsa Competizione in 2020 was the GT4 pack DLC. This added a new class of cars to ACC, the slightly less powerful GT4 cars from the 2019 GT4 European Series.
And for the first time, this DLC updated the game to be able to run multi-class events. These events can see both GT3 and GT4 cars running on the track at the same time. As well as the multi-class races, the GT4 pack DLC also added a few game modes that are commonplace in the GT4 European Series (the series that these cars ran in).
These new game modes include a new GT4 sprint race game mode and the GT4 European Series.
The new car list after the GT4 pack DLC has grown significantly with 11 new cars being added to the game. Some of these cars, such as the Mercedes AMG and Aston Martin Vantage, have already featured in ACC in their GT3 configurations. But others are completely new, such as the KTM X-Bow and the Porsche 718 Clubsport.
The official list of GT4 cars that have been added to ACC with this GT4 pack DLC include;
Release date – 18th November 2020
Price – £7.99
Closing out 2020 was the 2020 GT World Challenge Pack DLC. This added a whole host of new car liveries to update the game to feature the 2020 GT World Challenge series. But not only that, but this DLC pack also included two brand new cars, one new track and a new tyre model to the game.
The new track is probably the best part of this ACC DLC, and that saw Imola being added to the game. Imola is a hugely popular race track amongst racing fans, sim racers and real-world drivers. It is widely featured across multiple racing disciplines and has been in many racing sims in the past.
This new version of Imola has been laser scanned just like all other ACC tracks and represents one of the most realistic digital recreations of the track ever seen.
As well as the new track, the 2020 GT World Challenge Pack DLC introduced two new car models that featured in the 2020 GT World Challenge series. These are the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo and the Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo. Both of these cars are evolutions of the cars that were already in the game but represent the official 2020 competitors.
The 2020 GT World Challenge series also saw a new tyre used throughout the year, and this has also been reflected in-game thanks to this DLC. An entirely new tyre model has been introduced to ACC that represented the 2020 tyre updates much closer. And this tyre model can be found when using any of the 2020 GT3 cars in-game.

Release date – 10th February 2021
Price – £11.99
2021 only saw one DLC pack launch for Assetto Corsa Competizione and that was another new track pack. The British GT Pack DLC introduced three new British tracks allowing you to compete in the 2020 British GT Championship in-game.
All three of the new tracks, Donington Park, Oulton Park and Snetterton have been laser scanned for accuracy. And each new track represents an interesting new challenge to the game. From the undulations at Donington to the skinny track width at Oulton Park, all tracks are extremely fun to race around.
As well as the new tracks, the drivers and car liveries that featured in the 2020 British GT Championship are also in-game. That equates to 70 new drivers to choose from and 40 new car liveries.
And much like the Intercontinental and GT4 DLCs above, new game modes have been added. These allow you to race a full season in the 2020 British GT Championship.
Release date – 23rd March 2022
Price – £9.99
The Challengers pack has just been released on the 23rd March 2022, and features 5 brand new cars to race in ACC with! The Challengers Pack DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione has been confirmed to feature;
The Challengers Pack is out now on PC! Bringing you 5 new cars for you to get your hands on! Featuring Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini and BMW there’s plenty to explore on track. For more info see the launch blog here: https://t.co/1ExEFdbZBH #beACC #505Games pic.twitter.com/fNvkwckVkY

These cars bring the game up to date by featuring a selection of 2022 cars to the game and are the first step towards us running a full 2022 season. Although we will need a few new tracks adding to be able to compete across the full 2022 calendar.
Three of the new cars that have been confirmed, the Porsche, Ferrari and Audi R8 feature in GT3 class competitions around the world. The Huracan Super Trofeo Evo2 runs in the 2022 Lamborghini championship and the M2 CS also runs in a solo championship.
This update also brings Valentino Rossi’s number 46 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II into the game. This is the car Rossi is confirmed to be driving in the 2022 GT World Challenge series.
Both the Huracan Super Trofeo and the M2 CS are the two cars that are most different from the rest. While the Audi and Porsche are both newer iterations of existing in-game cars, much like the updated Ferrari and Mercedes AMG from the 2020 GT World Challenge DLC.
Release date – Summer 2022
Price – TBC
It has been confirmed that a new track pack is also on its way, scheduled for summer 2022. We don’t currently know what tracks will be included, but we can’t wait for some new race circuits to race the powerful GT3 and GT4 cars around!
