Automobilista 2 V1.4.1 has finally arrived – the new update packs a mega list of game-changing improvements, new features, cars and a great surprise – the 2022 reform of Spa-Francorchamps as a free addition to the existing Spa-Francorchamps DLC!

The official release of Racin´ USA Pt3 has been delayed while we work out some new items for the pack, but you won´t have to wait longer to do some oval racing – the two ovals already confirmed as part of Racin´ USA Pt3 along with all oval variants of F-USA Gen1-3 from Pt2 as well as Daytona from Pt1 will all be available with V1.4 tomorrow, the Pt 3 content as a free trial for all owners of the base game until they become part of the official Racin´ USA Pt3 release!

Introducing Advanced Mechanical Damage Modeling: AMDM is currently featuring with most open wheelers, GTs and faster prototypes. To make use of it, make sure to enable MECHANICAL FAILURES in GAMEPLAY UI. Try a race any of the historic open wheelers against AI (especially F-Vintage) with random failures enabled. to more readily experience the new feature. Custom AI creators may want to look into the new reliability parameter we added. We will extend this feature to more classes in the near future, but the most notoriously unreliable race cars already are supported

We have more relevant info about this update and how to get the best of the new features incoming – for now, here is the complete changelog since the last official release.
