Many issues with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Assetto Corsa Competizione will be addressed in an upcoming patch.ShareTweetShareShareEmail
An update is coming soon for Assetto Corsa Competizione racers that have migrated over to the next generation of PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Per the 505 Games website, both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S consoles have updates lined up for ACC that will hopefully ease some of the growing pains that Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games have faced in bringing the game to those machines.
To start with, Multiplayer issues have been addressed for both consoles. While, in our experience, the private lobbies worked without issues, other players were having inconsistencies and issues with transitioning properly. Those have been addressed.
Another issue includes the rear-view mirror on the consoles. Many users were not happy with the vast amount of pixelation, with mirror images producing in low resolution and blurry. Hopefully the updates will make it a viable source, although frame rate stability will likely need to be kept in mind when adjusting.
One of the biggest issues on the PS5 version was an issue where the throttle stopped working when cycling the car electronics menu while on track.
Also, for both versions, the BMW M4 headlight beams didn’t really do what was intended and light the environment during night sessions. Those issues will both be resolved in the upcoming patch.
These versions both released on the v1.7 edition of the platform, as opposed to the v1.8 that was out for PC players. Whether the differences in editions had anything to do with anything, it’s likely a bit tougher in this case to match the issues as they run on different versions.
While we’re happy to see a simulation platform available for next generation console players, the issues that ACC faced on the consoles were definitely tough to see. It was just a few tweaks away from being right up there with the best of them, including the PC edition of the game.
These visuals and physics are exemplary nonetheless, and we can’t wait for these fixes, the eventual v1.8 physics, and the Challengers Pack DLC to come the way of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles.
