    Assetto Corsa Community Console Update.jpg
    Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games have revealed their January Console Community Update for Assetto Corsa, bringing news of the long anticipated addition of private multiplayer lobbies, Porsche Volume III DLC details and a brief recap of all things AC on console from the last couple of weeks.

    The studio have today confirmed that private lobbies for the console version of the title, something scandalously missing for the sim when AC shipped for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 back in August 2016, has finally reached the stage where submission into QA is expected as early as next week. Of course with the often protracted approvals process employed by both Microsoft and Sony still to come one shouldn't get too excited about seeing this functionality added in the immediate future. Regardless it is no doubt pleasant news to hear of tangible progress on this sorely missed feature of the sim. Of course I am not privy to the inside dealings of the process within Kunos, however I feel it would be fair to assume that with QA beginning next week and under the assumption that no unforeseen issues arise, submission to Microsoft and Sony, approval and a public release within the next couple of months or so should be a realistic expectation.

    Other news from the January Community Blog shares with fans the expectation that the third and final Porsche DLC release for console is just around the corner, with the proposed update and DLC entering submission to the respective console developers next week. At present Kunos cannot offer an expected release date, however mid-to-late February feels like an appropriate guess based on previous releases from the console version of the title.

    You can read the full Kunos Community Blog update below:

    PRIVATE LOBBIES

    Firstly, we want to thank our console players for their continued patience regarding private lobbies. We get asked almost every day when they’re likely to land on console and be rest assured, our team have been working incredibly hard to make them happen. It’s not an easy task for the developers but today, we’re happy to announce that private lobbies are heading into QA next week, so watch this space… The finish line is in sight!

    PORSCHE PACK VOL. 3 DLC
    The Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC is coming! We’re heading into submission next week so hopefully we’ll have a release date to share with you guys soon, as well as more info on what to expect in v 1.12.

    Porsche Pack Volume 3 follows the first two DLC packs dedicated to the Porsche brand, introducing a selection of seven different vehicles. The pack places an emphasis on modern-day Porsche racing cars, including the entire 991 GT3 racing line and the latest 2016 Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid, while also featuring two of the German brand’s most iconic racing cars, the 908 Lang-Heck and 917 K.

    Volume 3 also brings players one of the most coveted modern road cars of the modern-day Porsche line-up, the Porsche 911 R, completing a perfect mix between road cars as well as modern and historic racing models.

    PORSCHE PACK VOL. 3 DLC CARS
    • Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 2017
    • Porsche 911 GT3 R 2016
    • Porsche 919 Hybrid 2016
    • Porsche 908 LH
    • Porsche 917 K
    • Porsche 911 R
    • Porsche 911 Turbo S

    SPECIAL EVENTS
    For those who may have missed our news a couple of weeks ago, as part of our next console update, (v 1.12) our PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can expect 40 Special Events for The Red Pack, Porsche Pack Vol. 2 and the upcoming Porsche Pack Vol. 3 DLC…

    SPECIAL EVENTS
    • 15 events for Red Pack DLC
    • 13 events for Porsche Pack #2 DLC
    • 12 events for Porsche Pack #3 DLC

    We’re keeping things short today, but we want to take this opportunity once again to thank our players for their support… It means so much to us!

    Assetto Corsa is a racing simulation from Kunos Simulazioni, available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC right now.

    Headline is a bit misleading given it's purely console related.

    It'd be the same regardless as the console version still needs patching and doesn't have PP3 yet. Nothing prophetic about it.

    Well, I believe the "Assetto Corsa Community Blog" has always only been about consoles, and it's posted in the console section of the official forums. So next time you see "Community Blog" you'll know it's only console news. ;)

    Looks like after the 24hrs of Daytona now
    It looks like more changes are been planed for the Console version than the PC.
    even allowing for the big update in coming soon.
    Still thing 505 will lean more & more towards console , its just fact there is more money there & a bigger market.
    Time will tell though.

    But what's so Community about this, if it is Console only. Surely a Community Blog should be about all platforms?

    "Are" >> plural form for multiple 911 (it's better with 's' after 911s?)... maybe not just one (singular) livery but two, three, ... liveries ?
