Over the last three years Kunos Simulazioni has developed all new DirectX 11 graphics technology, utilised by its dev team to create the racing game "Assetto Corsa" expected to be released soon on PC Windows. Since early 2012, a few automotive companies have been using the same software technology developed by Kunos for professional applications.
Thanks to the professional approach that was proven in the development of Ferrari Virtual Academy and other activities for their Technical Department, Kunos Simulazioni has extended its partnership with Ferrari, by signing a licensing agreement that will allow them to reproduce five of the most beautiful and desired Ferraris within Assetto Corsa, as well as the Mugello circuit, reproduced using the same Laserscan technology already appreciated in FVA.
Marco Massarutto, Project & Licensing Manager at Kunos Simulazioni commented: This achievement gives us the greatest satisfaction possible, and is the result of a long and complex work started a long time ago. After choosing our team in 2009 for the project "FVA," Ferrari has strengthened our collaboration agreement laying the basis for a long-time agreement with great potential.
With the Ferrari Official License in Assetto Corsa, Kunos Simulazioni realizes a dream, built through years of dedicated effort, with the aim of offering something great to gamers, racing fans and sim-racers. We left nothing to chance, working to the maximum of our abilities and resources. We hope that our efforts will be understood and appreciated, and that people, with their support, will allow us to go even further in the future.
