    Host of the German GP 37 times, the Hockenheimring is one of the tracks with the richest heritage in the world of motorsports. Historically known for its bygone classic layout with long straights through the surrounding forests, the track was reformed for the 2002 German GP, becoming much shorter modern circuit but retaining a high speed, flowing nature perfectly suited for wheel-to-wheel racing with all types of cars.

    This pack features 4 distinct versions of this legendary track from 4 different decades - 1977, 1988, 2001 and 2020, along with extra modern layouts (National, Short A & B).

    This the first DLC to be released for Automobilista 2, and it is FREE to all current AMS2 owners and for those who purchase AMS2 over the weekend (July 24-25-26 2020) - by July 27th the Hockenheimring Pack will be sold as an independent DLC to AMS2, and also as part of the 2020-2021 Season Pass.

    For those who have already purchased the Season Pass, be assured its value will be preserved with the addition of a 6th DLC pack to the five originally included in that package.

    Along with the Hockenheimring we are also deploying the first major update post V1 release - similar updates around this time of the month will be a regular fixture for the foreseeable future.

    The exception will be in August when we are releasing not one but two two major updates (including a LOT of new content) at the beginning and end of the month.

    The next update (scheduled for August 7th) will feature substantial developments to championship mode and introduce portuguese, spanish & french localization.

    We remind all users that AMS2 is a long term project that will continue to evolve and expand in a monthly basis for years to come - all fronts of the game will still have major improvements, with a lot of it to make it in before the end of the year. If you want to learn more about what´s incoming make sure to check out our July Development Update next week, where we will expand on these plans including some great content announcements!

    It doesn't show up for me in my track list and I'm a backer too.
    Don't get what's going on.

    OK I restarted steam 2 times and suddenly got a DLC tab on AMS2 properties and Hocken is there. And in the game too.

    Hockenheim showed up in my track selection. I bought in April, but I also bought the DLC season pack. I restarted Steam.

    Does this apply to helmet cam also? In can't see any difference.
    Should we be starting with a new Documents folder or just reset all set-ups in set up page?

    Good to see that the Bathurst AI grip is reduced. 120% AI V8SC were literally impossible to beat, the world record and PB is 2:03:700 and the AI were comfortably getting 2:03:200 on full tanks. Look forward to see how the update has changed things.

    Vsync is disabled to me after this update. Tried turning it off and on again, resetting the game and deleting the graphics file on Documents folder. Monitoring the frames with MSI afterburner in Hockenheim, it's a around 100 fps (should be 60 by my monitors refresh rate) on pit and when I start driving I notice the lack of smoothness that Vsync gives. Tried validating the integrity of games files through Steam and it found nothing wrong.

    Thank you, Reiza. Glad to know the game will keep being improved on the next years, and that there will be other two big updates already next month.

    Can I ask you something? Please, add an option to set a country flag near the player name (on multiplayer and TT), that is shown while on track and also on the players list.

    Thanks.

    Hockenheim is a absolute blast. Looks beautiful and feels great.
    Kids, don't forget to open those brake ducts :p

    If you mean the fast historic track versions, usually you should be able to close brake ducts a bit more, because of high air speed and masses of air coming through on the straights + airflow. Running wide open brake ducts on a high speed course should result in brakes under their temperature window.

    That's not a historic high speed track version, that's a Tilke Drome :p
