    AC PS4 Update.jpg
    Assetto Corsa on PlayStation 4 has been updated to version 1.03 by Kunos Simulazioni, and the new update include two bonus pieces of free content - the fictional Black Cat County race track and the Levante S, the new high specification SUV from Maserati.

    With many issues being reported by PlayStation 4 players of Assetto Corsa since the titles console launch, Kunos Simulazioni have been hard at work producing fixes and enhancements to the game, in order bring the title up to the level expected by console gamers. With patch 1.03 now released, Kunos have looked to address several key areas of concern with the title, most importantly of all the screen tearing and framerate issues are now claimed to be resolved.

    With a move to console very much uncharted territory for Kunos, it must be noted that the studio have worked extremely hard at rectifying a disappointing initial launch, and credit where it is due, the Kunos seem to be well on their way to restoring buyer confidence with the recent updates to the sim.

    Alongside the new patch, a couple of interesting pieces of new content have been added at no additional charge to owners of the game, namely the rather scenic Black Cat County track and the Maserati Levante S 4WD SUV. Black Cat County is a road course set amongst some dramatic off track scenery, and the Levante S is a first attempt by Italian supercar manufacturer Maserati at producing an all wheel drive SUV. Despite what you may initially assume with the Levante, it is actually a pretty entertaining driving experience!

    Although I'm happy for the PS4 players, (Knew that Kuno's wouldn't accept the way things went at launch anyways) I've been checking the Steam AC store page periodically for the German DLC myself!:p

    Guys, preemptive warning, don't start on the interpersonal debates. Keep it on topic. ;)

  12. Yeah i am a fan. Im a fan of all the bests sims we have today. You seem to hang around just to bad mouth products. What gives? You surely have a problem. What is it? You spent a couple of bucks and didnt like it so now you are on a childish crusade to smear it for all eternity? You are sent by a developer (most likely an arcade racer since i don't really think that about sim dev's)? Or maybe you're just a sad person who enjoys being negative and find joy in childish trolling? Either way its a strange behavior in a community like this. In and around kiddie games you expect it but not here.

    I remember when the sim community (any sim) was mature and respectable. Its just strange to see someone in a racing community smear products every time there is news about it. And i dont like to be hostile, but yes i am using this product which has sold very well because people enjoy it. Your little bad mouthing campaign will not make a sim disappear so i should probably not even give you the attention. Last comment from me to you. Keep going on your negative mission and enjoy...

    On topic: Black Cat County is a fun track to race or chase times on, and dont knock the car because with the pure driving feeling AC gives its a fun car to throw around. :)

    Thread cleaned. We don't need every AC thread to go into this horrible spiral of pointless arguments.
