Posted 16th Jun
Good price for this, released next week on console. Very popular Sim racer on PC, looking forward to this!

Next week, Assetto Corsa Competizione launches onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The team here are incredibly excited and we’re looking forward to introducing the console crowd to the official GT World Challenge Series title when we launch on June 23. With that in mind, we’ve put together a useful little blog that covers a bunch of FAQs that we’ve picked up on over the last few weeks across our social media channels. We will keep this guide up to date with the latest info as and when we receive commonly asked questions from the community.

What is Assetto Corsa Competizione?
Assetto Corsa Competizione is the new official GT World Challenge video game. Thanks to the extraordinary quality of simulation, the game will allow you to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 homologated championship, competing against official drivers, teams, cars and circuits. Using sophisticated mathematical models, the engine carefully simulate tyre grip, aerodynamic impact, engine parameters, suspensions and electronics systems that determine vehicle balance, as well as the influence of mechanical damage on the car’s drivability. Offering photo realistic weather conditions and graphics, night races, motion capture animations, it’s a new standard in terms of driving realism and immersion.

When does Assetto Corsa Competizione launch onto console?
Assetto Corsa Competizione launches onto PS4 and Xbox One on June 23, 2020.

Can I pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione at retail?
Yes, Assetto Corsa Competizione is available to pre-order at retail. For more info, head to our website: acc.505games.com/

Can I pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione digitally?
Assetto Corsa Competizione is now available to pre-order digitally on Xbox One.

Can I pre-order ACC digitally on PlayStation® 4?
Unfortunately, we’re unable to take digital pre-orders on PlayStation® 4. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC content. At launch, we’ll be giving you the opportunity to pick up ACC with the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC at no extra cost. But only for 2 weeks! After this time, the DLC will then be available later this summer. More info coming soon.

Why should I pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione?
Xbox pre-orders (both digital and boxed versions)* will get the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for free. PlayStation® 4 pre-orders for boxed versions* will get the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC and a static theme for free. PlayStation® 4 purchases from Sony stores* from 23 June 2020 to 7 July 2020 will get the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC and a static theme for free.



As an Xbox user, why do we have to pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione on Xbox One in order to obtain the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC, when PlayStation® users don’t have to?
Unfortunately, we’re unable to take PS4 pre-orders at this time but of course, we want to make sure everyone is able to get hold of the DLC content at launch. The decision we’ve taken allows us to serve both communities.

Why do PlayStation® users have 2 weeks to get hold of the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC at launch? Yet Xbox users don’t?
We don’t want PS4 users to miss out on the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC as a result of not being able to pre-order. That’s why we’ll be giving PS4 the opportunity to pick up the DLC at no extra cost for a very limited time post-launch. (2 weeks) Xbox users won’t miss out on the Intercontinental GT Pack if they decide to pre-order.

What does the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC contain?
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.

If I don’t pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione, can I still get hold of the Intercontinental GT Pack?
Yes, the Intercontinental GT Pack will be available to purchase as a standalone DLC later this summer.

Sub £20 is my bitting point, but good find
Not sure about this,think I’ll wait to see what the reviews say,nice post anyway
As above, waiting for the reviews. I have most racing games on Xbox. Felt let down by the first Assetto Corsa with the poor UI and lack of leaderboards. That said, it did work well with a wheel ...
Heat for the price though!

Agreed. I think the first was a poor attempt, and there’s a decent chance this may suffer as a result. Will wait on reviews, but I imagine it’ll drop in price relatively quickly

I’ve heard nothing but good things about the PC version......and I’m jealous
Locked at 30fps, I'm out.
Will this be updated on Series X? I thought they had said they wouldnt release on current gen because it needed too many compromises?
No news yet as far as I know for what may change if ran on Series X.

I can only speak for xbox ...

My preference is Forza 7 for all round driving/racing experience, so much to do. Works well with wheel or controller.

But in all honesty if PCars 1 or 2 worked as well as the developers promised it would have been the one to beat for pure racing. Good to great with a wheel, loads of real world tracks, sufficient cars/liveries ..... however it was horrendous with a controller, poor game structure and scrappy leaderboards that didnt help the online racing community. PCars 3 has already been announced and looks more like something from NFS or GRID, more arcadey.

Assetto 1 was the same, great with a wheel, ok with a controller but not as good as FM7. The UI and game structure was a mess and the racing/challenges were mostly impossible which meant you really had to dumb down the AI or give up on progression.

If you are new to online racing I would recommend FM7, especially if you only intend using a controller.

Thanks much appreciated. I’m playing Forza 7 now and dare I say it, it’s dragging on a bit but maybe that’s because I’m not used to racing games nowadays? My favourite was F zero back in the day

Guess the career does take ages .... i never bothered as i enjoyed painting liveries, hot lapping and racing 😁
Some xbox footage here for those interested:

30fps!!! Terrible

Can't lie. This is a deal.breaker for me. If I'm playing games now I want 60fps, it's 2020, this should be standard now. Especially if at 1080p! At 4k I could allow for a drop but with a One X in my house I demand more!

Dude you have made my day!!

Like you I started off with Forza 7 as my go to. Brilliant with a Logitech g920 (once you perfect the settings!) But I hated the AI, too much smashing into my car! Online is insane, it's like Mario kart in real cars which is not what I signed up for!

So I got Assetto Corsa and honestly I feel the handling to be so realistic! Not the prettiest but I can live with that, but honestly, the challenges are insane! I'm struggling with a fiat 500 in a race against other fiat 500's!! Been stuck on it for ages as I want first place but it's not a reality!

Best overall game I have come across so far with the wheel is Dirt 2.0. Fantastic game (again, once the wheel is setup properly) it's a joy to play and has me on the edge of my seat!

Started playing the demo for F1 2019 and have enjoyed it, may pick it up when 2020 gets released. I don't watch formula 1 so don't care for roster but love a good racing game!

All car games need to be 60fps for me so really disappointed that this one is only 30!!

But don’t forget the current hardware is not 2020 technology. I would be
more annoyed if PS5 or Series X don’t have 60FPS racing games in 4K, would be no excuses there. I’m not surprised as the developer admitted that graphical fidelity had to play second fiddle to allow them
to ensure the sounds and physics were on a par with the PC version. Oh well, roll on Forza 8, this will do for me until then.

PS4 Pro gameplay:


Honestly can't decide with this.
I'm a massive GT3 fan, so have been desperate to play this game since day one on PC. Haven't had a PC fast enough to run it and was over the moon when it got announced for XB1/PS4.
Bit corncering that they didn't show any gameplay until a week before the relesas date and I'm not impressed with the 20 car AI limit and 30 FPS.
