Kunos Simulazioni have released a statement on the progress of the upcoming Assetto Corsa console update, promising to deliver "the best update yet" for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players... With the current console build of the popular Italian racing simulation lagging considerably far behind it's PC counterpart, Kunos Simulazioni have looked to appease console players fears with a short statement on the progress of the new update. It is expected that the PS4 and Xbox One version of AC will be brought back in to line with the current PC build of the game, and will include the latest free content offerings from Kunos such as, amongst others, the fictional Highlands Raceway and Audi 80 Quattro released to PC back in February. Additionally the inclusion of reversed grids and an array of other technical and feature enhancements could well be joining in with the next build, marking a substantial step forward for a game that although well received by console players so far, lacks the level of depth and feature richness associated with other high profile console racing title's. Although Kunos have promised the next build will be "the best update yet" to AC on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, no word on if players can expect to receive the long awaited multiplayer lobby functionality has been forthcoming as of yet. Indeed Kunos haven't revealed the full change log or even a release date, however with the update now finding itself working through the approvals process with Microsoft and Sony as you read this article it can only be a matter of weeks and not months until players having something new to lay their hands upon.
