The Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit is now available in Automobilista 2! Also featuring in this latest update is the Sigma P1, which despite the name actually raced in P2 class for most of 2019, thanks to a somewhat overweight drivetrain.
That´s the P2 car in the game now – the 2020 car promises to be a big step forward to bring the fight to the AJRs in P1 class, and once it gets to race it will have a version in AMS2 as well!
With these additions, we are now up to 40 unique racing classes, 40 venues for over 70 layouts! Check out the full updated car & tracklist here.
The new update rectifies some netcode issues that have made close racing difficult in Multiplayer mode up to now – all good for quality online action now!
The new build also brings a round of AI performance calibration in this build to balance performance vs player following recent modifications, as a result you may find necessary to adjust AI Strength from what you were running before in certain series in order to get the same performance from the AI) the goal being for less adjustments needed from series to series).
