From the presentation on the future of Assetto Corsa, we made two conclusions: first, the mobile version will appear in less than a week. Secondly, the next generation Assetto Corsa Competizione will be released on February 24th, 2022.
Let’s talk about the next-gen version first. It is a slight delay compared to the previously announced release date for this year, but not too much postpone. Primary thing to note is that if you possess current generation Assetto Corsa Competizione, then you are going to get the next gen versions, PS5 and Xbox Series S and X, absolutely free.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Updates
But what updates will you get with this next-gen version? Well, here is the list provided by Kunos Simulazioni.
Free Update: Automatic update for current owners of Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Increased Frame Rate: 60 frames per second for a faster and smoother race,
Save Import: Transfer old Save games to your new console.
Multiplayer Lobbies: Create your private racing lobby,
Liveries 2021: Updated liveries from the 2021 season.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Dates and Details
First of all, we now have a well-defined date for the new edition of Assetto Corsa Competizione, which is the beginning of next year, more precisely on February 24th, 2022.
For those who own the old-gen version of the game, there will be the possibility to get the next-gen upgrade for free. And it will be possible to import the saves and DLC that you already have.
According to the announcement, the next-generation updates include support for 4K resolution and a frame rate increase to 60fps. The update will also coincide with the game being the new official GT World Challenge video game. To celebrate this event, there will be a free set of liveries and free private lobbies.
Those who already own the hyper-realistic simulator will receive a free update from the Xbox One and PlayStation 5 versions. Your saved games and all add-ons, including vehicles, will also carry over to the new version.
First released on PC in 2018, the game promises a “true GT3 championship homologation atmosphere,” including official drivers, teams, cars, and tracks. It was then launched for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the summer of 2020.
You also have a mobile version. Assetto Corsa Mobile had a launch on Tuesday, August 31st, for iPad and iPhone. The game features nine tracks and 59 licensed cars, as well as fully customizable controls. The novelty looks decent enough for a mobile racing game, although no one expected it to look as good as the original car simulator.
