The official Blancpain GT Series racing sim is a fairly recent launch, so it’s no surprise some issues and improvements have already cropped up. And Assetto Corsa Competizione Update V1.0.5 aims to address many of these.
The update is live on Steam, and you should see it via your client to download. Most of the fixes relate to the online multiplayer side of the game. Although it includes everything from Assetto Corsa Competizione not starting if you have a particular set of characters in your username to the grip level of some of the astroturf surrounding the track at Spa.
The full list of changes implemented by developers Kunos Simulazioni are listed below.
