Automobilista 2 V1.5 Officially RELEASED


The long awaited v1.5 milestone update for Automobilista 2 is now officially released, featuring a major overhaul to the physics of all cars in the game, a new DLC introducing dirt & rallycross racing to the sim a long with an extensive list of new features and improvements;


A Pt2 of the Adrenaline Pack is already in production and will take AMS2 to even higher extremes - owners of the AMS2 2020-2022 Season Pass and of the AMS2 Premium Expansion Packs are secured both parts at no additional charge. More info about the contents of Pt2 soon!


IMPORTANT!Please note that while all classes except karts have gotten their v1.5 physics revisions in this update, they will remain subject to further minor adjustments until the next update a few weeks from now. Only then will the v1.5 physics be locked down from further handling or performance-impacting changes until the next milestone update, at which time Time Trial boards will once again be reset.


IMPORTANT 2 The above also applies to AI performance calibration, which remains subject to further fine-tuning until the next release.


IMPORTANT 3! All car setups have been automatically reset as of this update to conform with the changes from v1.5 physics.
