Today we bring the news so many sim racers have been waiting for! We’re thrilled to announce that Assetto Corsa Competizione, the Official GT World Challenge game, will launch on Xbox One June 23.
The road to get here has been incredibly exciting for everyone at 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni and we can’t wait to bring ACC to Xbox One later this year. In the meantime, let me tell you more about what to expect…
The Official Gt Challenge Series Game
As mentioned, Assetto Corsa Competizione is the Official GT World Challenge game, giving players the opportunity to experience the real atmosphere of the GT3 championship with manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren, Lamborghini, and Porsche. Featuring official cars, tracks, drivers and teams, our players will be able to jump into Sprint and Endurance races, as well as the iconic Spa 24hr race, in both single and multiplayer modes.
Assetto Corsa Competizione features some of the most well-known circuits on the planet, brought to life through Laserscan technology. This tech enables our dev team to recreate circuits with the highest level of accuracy, so expect to feel every bump and kerb on track that you would in the cockpit of a real car. Those that know Kunos Simulazioni know that this dev team is all about attention to detail, so tracks such as Silverstone, Monza, Spa-Francorchamps and the Nürburgring are going to be real fun to race on.
ACC takes full advantage of Unreal Engine 4, bringing day and night races, photorealistic weather conditions and graphics, motion capture animations, improved tyre and aerodynamic models and more to game. The level of immersion you’ll experience from a driver’s perspective is incredible. In fact, we’ve already seen GT World Challenge drivers jump on the PC edition of ACC, which is surreal to see. If anything, this is solid proof that Kunos developed something very close to the real-life experience.
Intercontinental GT Pack DLC
Players who decide to pre-order Assetto Corsa Competizione will receive free access to the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC at launch, which features four of the most iconic international circuits from around the world: Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit (South Africa), Suzuka Circuit (Japan), Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca (United States), and Mount Panorama Circuit (New South Wales Australia). What’s more, this DLC will come with over 45 new car liveries, 30 new teams and 50 new drivers, along with all-new game modes from the Intercontinental GT Challenge, powered by Pirelli. (There’s a lot to be excited about here!)
For those who don’t want to pre-order, don’t worry! The Intercontinental GT Pack comes to Xbox One this Summer as a standalone paid DLC.
Race to The Finish Line
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be giving our community more info on the console edition of Assetto Corsa Competizione over on our official AC and 505 Games Twitter channels. Today has been super exciting for the team and as a Community Manager, it’s awesome to finally be able to talk about today’s announcement. We’ve seen the console question asked so many times so it’s nice to finally be able to say yes, ACC is coming to Xbox One June 23! See you trackside!
