Kunos Simulazioni are keeping us busy as always. So it’s time to catch up on the latest Assetto Corsa Competizione PC hotfixes and console news.
The last major Assetto Corsa Competizione release was update 1.4, which arrived in the middle of May with lots of changes to car physics, particularly with slick and wet tyre wear. And with the console edition being released on June 23rd, 2020, you might have thought the Kunos team wouldn’t be doing much for the PC version for a while.
But you’d be wrong! Since then, we’ve had four Assetto Corsa Competizione PC hotfixes.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.4.1:
- Hired adult drivers for the driver customization screen.
- Revised rain indicator ranges.
- Loading/transition screen alignment.
- Serbian flag corrected.
- Special events screen: placeholder image for team logo hidden until replacement.
- Special events screen: D-pad navigation correction when in VR mode.
- Tyre widget now displays compound name for opponent cars in MP.
- Russian: changed descriptive translations of PSI units to just PSI.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.4.2:
- Bug fixes and improvements in the automatic Setup UI system.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.4.3
- Fixed corrupted car physics state in MP with session transitioning while still in the setup screen.
Assetto Corsa Competizione Hotfix 1.4.4
- Fixed an inconsistency with the automatic setup saving logic depending on spawn location.
- Fixed helicam jumps and sudden movements when transitioning between cars.
- 2020 Dinamic liveries as bonus content.
Although none of the hotfixes have necessarily included massive changes to the game, it’s great to see that Kunos Simulazioni are still able to devote plenty of time and effort to updating and improving Assetto Corsa Competizione for the PC, even in the midst of the console release.
Speaking of the Console release…
New Assetto Corsa Competizione Console Trailer and Virtual Preview
If you’re waiting with anticipation for Assetto Corsa Competizione to arrive on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the new Game Modes Trailer will probably just make you more impatient.
But you’ll soon have the chance to find out more about the official GT World Challenge game with a virtual preview of the console editions at the virtual E3 Expo, which you can watch live on June 16th, 2020.
It’ll be shown via the 505 Games Twitch channel, and will include Kunos Simulazioni co-fouder Marco Massarutto, SRO Motorsports Group esports representatives Robbie Montinola and Anthony Comas, pro racing coach Guy Cosmo (K-Pax Racing and Bentley), and the possibly familiar name of David Perel (Ferrari 488 GT3). Not only is Perel a professional sportscar racer with various victories to his name, but he’s also an enthusiastic and popular sim racer.

Last chance for Assetto Corsa Competizione Console Pre-Orders
If you’re planning to buy Assetto Corsa Competitione for the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, then it’s worth a reminder that pre-orders give you the bonus of the Intercontinental GT Pack DLC for free.
This includes four circuits (Kyalami, Suzuka, Laguna Seca and Mount Panorama), plus new game modes, 50 new drivers, 30 new teams and 45 new car liveries to replicate the real Intercontinental GT series in the game.
You can pre-order physical copies of Assetto Corsa Competizione for the Xbox One and PS4 from Game or Amazon. Digitial copies of the Xbox One version can be found via the Microsoft Store, but the PlayStation Store hasn’t listed it yet, so you’ll need to order an actual disc version to get the pre-order bonus…
