Today, we’re super excited to announce that Assetto Corsa Competizione, the Official GT World Challenge game, will be Xbox Series X|S Optimized on February 24, 2022. The sim racing community have been eager to know not only if, but when Assetto Corsa Competizione will launch onto next-gen, so it’s great to finally be able to confirm and acknowledge its existence openly.
What is Assetto Corsa Competizione?
Assetto Corsa Competizione is the Official GT World Challenge game. Originally developed by the immensely talented Italian development team KUNOS Simulazioni, Assetto Corsa Competizione is a sim racing game unlike many others. Used by real-life racing drivers such as David Perel and James Baldwin, ACC delivers a super realistic racing experience, thanks to the incredible attention to detail not only on and in the cars (which have been built using actual manufacturer data) but also the circuits you race on. Featuring tracks such as Silverstone, Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya, Circuit de Spa Francorchamps and the iconic Monza circuit, each track has been carefully reproduced using Laserscan technology, meaning you’ll feel every single bump and kerb out there.
Accelerating Towards Xbox Series X|S
So, what can our players expect when they hop into their racing seats next year? Let us give you the rundown.
- Smooth 60fps gameplay
- 4K visuals
- Free private multiplayer lobbies
- Our all-new 2021 Liveries update
- Smart Delivery Support
That’s right, if you’re already out on track in Assetto Corsa Competizione on Xbox One, you can upgrade to Xbox Series X|S version at no additional cost thanks to Smart Delivery. If you’ve picked up any DLC along the way, that’s also carried over. On top of this, game saves will also be transferable, so no need to worry there. We’ll provide more info on how to do all this nearer to launch.
Developed by Untold Games and overseen by Kunos Simulazioni, Assetto Corsa on Xbox Series X|S is looking great! The team have listened to the community, and we believe launching onto Xbox Series X|S will help us tackle a lot of player requests.
As we approach the chequered flag, let us wrap things up by saying thank you to our Assetto Corsa Competizione community for their patience and their support over the past couple of years. We are all super excited to be bringing Assetto Corsa Competizione to Xbox Series X|S and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts and feedback.
