Racing Sim Assetto Corsa Competizione Coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 23

Global publisher 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni will bring the ultimate racing simulation game Assetto Corsa Competizione to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One  consoles on Tuesday, June 23, available both digitally and at physical retail for $39.99.

Players who pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will receive free access to the recently released Intercontinental GT Pack DLC, which expands the Assetto Corsa Competizione experience to include the official Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli competition.

Players who opt out of pre-ordering Assetto Corsa Competizione can still purchase the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this summer for $14.99.

Assetto Corsa Competizione is an extraordinary racing simulation game allowing players to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 championship, competing against official drivers, teams, cars and circuits reproduced in-game with the highest level of accuracy ever achieved. Sprint, Endurance and Spa 24 Hours races come to life with an incredible level of realism, in both single and multiplayer modes. Born from KUNOS Simulazioni’s long-term experience, this racing simulator takes full advantage of Unreal Engine 4 to ensure photorealistic weather conditions and graphics, night races, motion capture animations, reaching a new standard in terms of driving realism and immersion, thanks to its further improved tyre and aerodynamic models.

The Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione introduces four iconic international circuits from four different continents – Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit (South Africa), Suzuka Circuit (Japan), Weathertech® Raceway Laguna Seca (United States) and Mount Panorama Circuit (New South Wales Australia). Players owning these tracks will extend the GT Series to the Intercontinental GT Challenge by Pirelli, providing a challenging driving experience using an exclusive layout finely reproduced with Laserscan® technology, allowing for extreme track reproduction precision and detail. The Intercontinental GT Pack DLC also adds more than 45 new car liveries, 30 new teams and 50 new drivers along with all-new game modes from the real-life Intercontinental GT Challenge powered by Pirelli.

The launch of Assetto Corsa Competizione on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is part of a full plan that will cover both PC and console installments of the game:

  • This April, the free Assetto Corsa Competizione v1.4 update for PC Steam will introduce new features – including the car showroom, new driver/car personalization choices and additional options for multiplayer servers – and lots of improvements of the game features, UI and algorithms.
  • The GT4 Pack paid DLC, adding +10 new GT4 cars, will be available this summer on PC Steam, and this fall on consoles.
  • The British Pack paid DLC, offering 3 new iconic circuits that complete the 7-race calendar of the British GT Championship, will be available this winter for both PC Steam and consoles.

“Competizione is the finest expression of the Assetto Corsa brand, aiming to be known as a synonym of realism” said Marco Massarutto, Co-Founder, Executive & Licensing Manager of KUNOS Simulazioni. “Console players have shown their high appreciation towards our approach to racing simulations, so we are certain they will appreciate our efforts to bringing also to their favourite platforms the experience, accuracy and depth that Assetto Corsa Competizione has to offer on PC”.

  1. Awesome! I did not expect this one to hit consoles. I love the first one and still play it regularly on XB1 and PS4. This will be a pre-order purchase for me. I hope custom championships are still included and full race replays were finally implemented.
    I hope they're going to offer some quality/performance graphics options for the XBox One X and the PS4 Pro. It would be great to display ASC at 4K/60 FPS on my X, but if that's not achievable, maybe a 4K/30 FPS and 1080p/60 FPS option?
    I'm hopeful for force feedback steering wheel support on the X that's at least comparable in quality to what the original Asseto Corsa has on the PC. I've never tried Assetto Corsa on my XBox One X, so I don't know how it compares to the force feedback support on the PC (which is excellent, BTW). Anyone have some opinions on force feedback wheel support for the XBox One version of Assetto Corsa they could share?
