Kunos Simulazioni have confirmed an upcoming patch for the console version of Assetto Corsa has been entered into submission and should be deployed within the next weeks. The update will bring a number of fixes to framerates and tearing issues as well as two new pieces of free content, the Black Cat County circuit and the Maserati Levante four wheel drive SUV. With many console players crying out for fixes to several areas of the game, news of the upcoming patch to version 1.03 will be very welcome indeed. Although an official change log and release date have yet to be announced, Kunos have gone so far as to confirm screen tearing and framerate issues have received attention and should be resolved as part of the update. A brief preview changelog can be seen below: Framerate will be smoother and screen tearing issues have been resolved. Players will be able to select their starting position in the race options screen. On launching Assetto Corsa, the game will recognise the device you are using, when selecting the ‘X’ (PlayStation 4) or ‘A’ (Xbox One) button in the start screen. Thrustmaster T80, T100 and TH8 shifter functionality has been improved. A new option which allows the player to set the visual steering lock to any degree is coming. 2 additional difficulty levels – 'Very Easy' and 'Very Hard'. AI strengths have been re-balanced, in response to community feedback. A full list of additions, fixes and features will be published in due course. There will also be 2 pieces of FREE BONUS CONTENT! (Everyone loves free stuff, right?) The Black Cat County track will be available as part of our next major update, in the form of 3 different configurations. Players will also be able to download the Maserati Levante S, the first Maserati SUV for FREE! Assetto Corsa is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC Now.
