The Racing Simulation Assetto Corsa Competizione (from 24.99 € buy) will appear on 24 February 2022 in a specially adapted version for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | s. This has confirmed Kunos Simulazioni as part of a showcase event, where Kunos Simulazioni was allowed to participate. The implementation is offered both digitally and physically in the trade. In the so-called Day-One Edition, a DLC extension should also be included in addition to the main game.
Already, the game benefits from the stronger hardware power of the new consoles, which, etc., allows higher frame rates. For the new version, the developers also promise a representation with 60 frames per second and strive to approach 4K as close as possible in a dynamic resolution. At the same time, the graphical quality should be closer to the PC version, but technically still remains the level of things. RayTracing will not be an issue in the future: According to Marco Massarutto, the founder of the studio, the feature simply eats too much performance and would not be fully equal to the high speeds on the slope anyway. It looks different from NVIDIAS DLSS technology, whose implementation is being sharply hurt for a possible release at the end of 2021 or early 2022. Here, the team promises advantages in terms of frame rate and sharpness.
Console drivers benefit from an exclusive extra, which some would certainly like to see some of the PC version: After the publication of the Next-Gen version you will be allowed to create private multiplayer lobbies, while on the PC for individual settings continue to rent servers Need to become. On the PS5, the studio also evaluates just how to integrate the haptic feedback of the dualSense controller as well as well as possible. Events such as the grasping of ABS or the routing of the margins are therefore offered.
Who has assetto corsa competentials already on Xbox One or PlayStation 4, will receive the upgrade free. Of course, this concerns not only the main game, but also all DLC extensions. At the same time, Kunos guarantees the transfer of the scales to the new platforms.
In the future, Assetto Corsa Competizione wants to support other content: according to Marco Massarutto, the founder of the studio, you are currently in negotiations in this regard. In the rumor kitchen is already talking about that race cars could hold from the GT2 class. Massarutto has not confirmed this, but sets six to seven new vehicles in the upcoming extensions to appear in the first quarter of 2022. It is already clear that the paintings of 2021 are to be refilled for free. Other routes are also planned, including a new slopes from the USA. With an implementation of the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife you can not expect in the future because the sro license is in the way.
The console implements do not arise directly from Kunos Simulazioni, but an external studio. According to Massarutto, the team is currently focusing fully on completion for PS5 and Xbox Series X | s. But then you want to devote yourself to the old console generation and check if further optimizations are possible.
