Despite featuring in the original Assetto Corsa, the Nurburgring Nordschleife is absent in Assetto Corsa Competizione. That’s finally about to change next month with the long-awaited release of the Assetto Corsa Competizione Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC.

In April, ACC players can finally experience the thrill of navigating one of the world’s most notorious race tracks.

From the release date to the price, here’s what we know so far about the Assetto Corsa Competizione Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC.

Latest news - Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC available now

This is not an April Fool's joke, the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC is now available in Assetto Corsa Competizione, bringing the iconic Nurburgring complex to ACC.

Featuring a combination of both the Nordschleife and GP-Strecke circuits, the Nurburgring 24 Hours endurance race is a true test of racing ability.

Tackling the Green Hell is tough enough under daylight, never mind under the cover of darkness, so players will be feeling the pressure the next time they hop behind the wheel.

First opened in 1927, Nurburgring Nordschleife is renowned as one of the scariest racetracks in the world. With over 170 corners, numerous elevation changes, and high-speed straights, it’s no wonder it’s nicknamed the Green Hell.

Since its appearance in Project Gotham Racing 2, the Nordschleife has become a staple circuit in racing games, pushing players' skills to the limit.

The Green Hell was recently added to Forza Motorsport and has been available in Gran Turismo 7 and rFactor 2 for years. It’s also part of the original Assetto Corsa’s track list, yet it hasn’t featured in Assetto Corsa Competizione.

This is because Assetto Corsa Competizione is the official game of the GT World Challenge, featuring GT2, GT3, and GT4 cars as well as laser-scanned tracks from the official championship.

Until recently, the Nurburgring wasn’t part of the GT World Challenge racing calendar. That’s now changed, with the 24h Nurburgring joining the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli round in the 2024 season.

This has given Kunos Simulazioni the green light to add the Nurburgring Nordschleife to Assetto Corsa Competizione. But when can players hit the ‘Ring?

Release date

First teased last November, the Assetto Corsa Competizione Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC will be available on Steam on 1 April 2024, so players can hit the ‘Ring soon. No, it’s not an April Fool’s joke.

How much will the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC cost?

The Steam page isn’t live at the time of writing, so it’s not clear how much the Nurburgring Nordschleife DLC will cost. Kunos Simulazioni has yet to reveal pricing details or if the pack includes any cars.

Going by other DLC packs, we expect it will cost around £9.99 - £14.99.

Will the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC come to consoles?

Initially, the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC will only be available on PC, but what about console players? Kunos Simulazioni hasn’t confirmed if it will come to consoles, but it seems likely.

Console players usually have to wait a few more months for Assetto Corsa Competizione's DLC packs to arrive after the initial PC release. This will likely be the case for the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC.

After releasing on PC at the end of January this year, the recent GT2 Pack DLC landed on consoles on 27 February. This was earlier than expected, with previous DLC packs arriving on consoles several months later. If Kunos continues this quick turn around, the Nurburgring 24hr Pack DLC will likely come to consoles sometime in May at the earliest.
