The comparisons between Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa Competizione are numerous. The reach of these differences makes it all the way to VR.
Today we're going to be letting you know which Assetto Corsa you should buy for VR! So, which one is it?
First of all, you certainly need to know all about Assetto Corsa VR. You can read up on our beginner's guide to learn more!
The benefits of choosing the old and iconic Assetto Corsa for VR, are plentiful. Most notably, the fact that there are plenty of mods for you to choose from.
You have a lot of options, and the game will always feel fresh. Especially by installing mods that make the experience tailored to your exact taste!
The downsides are there, however, admittedly. For instance, the game is not as visually pleasing as Assetto Corsa Competizione from the get-go.
Although it can match it closely with the inclusion of mods having to set up all the mods you like is a process some might find overwhelming. It is for sure worth the effort, though!
Assetto Corsa Competizione
On the other hand, ACC is much more advanced as a game, but it is limited in terms of options. Being a competitive simulator, ACC limits you to GT world challenge cars. So that might not be your cup of tea.
ACC has stunning graphics from the get-go, immersive, dynamic visuals, and weather effects, which you cannot achieve without mods in AC.
Out of the box, ACC looks better, performs slightly better, but limits your options. The VR experience is always a debate ongoing in the community's forums.
What we make out of it is that modding is a real key strength, which makes VR just look and perform to give mesmerising results.
Verdict of which Assetto Corsa to buy for VR
We believe that getting the best VR experience depends on your preference. Some people want to feel like they're part of a real racing tournament and have to manually check their mirrors and make the most of the immersion.
While others might just want to cruise at late nights on the Shutoko Revival Project map in the rain.
The most ambitious Assetto Corsa mod, making open-world possible, Shutoko Revival Project map is a groundbreaking mod.
So, what we can safely say is that, with mods, the options for Assetto Corsa are limitless. And they will heighten the quality of your VR experience. Assetto Corsa Competizione is a fairly new game. This means it doesn't have enough mods to create projects as ambitious, for now!
We have covered before which edition should you buy, if you'd like to check the rest of the differences, with VR out of the picture.
We think that for now, any player who is willing to get their hands on mods should turn to AC for the VR experience. What mods add to the game is just too valuable to miss on, but this might not be the case for long!
With time passing, ACC and AC2 are bound to get the same kind of treatment. Make sure to tune back right here at Racing Games for more on Assetto Corsa!
