Assetto Corsa – Blog Update Console Version

With Assetto Corsa front and centre in the news of late, 505 Games keeps that momentum going by releasing an official blog post focusing on the console version of the very popular sim racing title. Antonela Pounder, 505 Games Community Manager, posted a blog update for the console version of Assetto Corsa yesterday informing the community of the upcoming plans for the title and what we can expect from Kunos Simulazioni in the coming period.

First and foremost, Antonela covers the much requested ‘’Private Lobbies.’’ This feature will be put through its paces in the coming week. With this news, it is reasonable to assume it will soon be implemented for the consoles.

Also taking place in the coming week, the Porsche Pack DLC Vol. is going into its final submission with a release expected to follow soon after this process. Finally, the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One v1.12 update will pack some 40 new ‘’Special Events,’’ which will be directed at the Red Pack, Porsche Pack DLC Vol. 2 and the as yet unreleased Porsche Pack DLC Vol. 3. For your convenience, you can read the complete blog post here below.

Hi everyone,

Today, we want to give our console community a short but sweet update on private lobbies, Porsche Pack Vol 3 DLC and upcoming Special Events…

PRIVATE LOBBIES

Firstly, we want to thank our console players for their continued patience regarding private lobbies. We get asked almost every day when they’re likely to land on the console and be rest assured, our team has been working incredibly hard to make them happen. It’s not an easy task for the developers but today, we’re happy to announce that private lobbies are heading into QA next week, so watch this space… The finish line is in sight!

PORSCHE PACK VOL. 3 DLC

The Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC is coming! We’re heading into submission next week so hopefully, we’ll have a release date to share with you guys soon, as well as more info on what to expect in v 1.12.

The pack places an emphasis on modern-day Porsche racing cars, including the entire 991 GT3 racing line and the latest 2016 Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid, while also featuring two of the German brand’s most iconic racing cars, the 908 Lang-Heck and 917 K.
