In the sports sim genre, games either come out once and get updated as a live service for a long life cycle or get a yearly release. Assetto Corsa Competizione belongs to the much smaller group of the former. For sports sim enthusiasts, that's a great thing – you buy a single game and you get to play it for over a decade. Your game gets updated regularly, which means your simulation is always up-to-date to what's available in the real world. For Assetto Corsa Competizione, that means you always get the latest GT tracks and vehicles as they get introduced in real life. However, while the game continues to update itself with the newest tracks and vehicles, the machine it runs on may get old and outdated.

Hence, developers KUNOS Simulazioni have decided to release Assetto Corsa Competizione on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. This makes the almost 3-year-old game updated with the bells and whistles of next-gen consoles. The game's move to the next-gen consoles also future-proofs its esports scene, as more and more gamers adopt the shiny new PS5 and Xbox Series X. The next-gen versions of Assetto Corsa Competizione allow players to enjoy 4K/60 FPS gameplay, the ability to create private lobbies, and 30-player multiplayer grids. Players will also have access to more than 60 liveries from the 2021 GT3 Championship, as well as access to the exclusive BMW M4 GT3 2022. On top of this, players who purchase the Day One Edition of the game will get the 2020 GT World Challenge Pack DLC for free, which contains the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferarri – Imola, the Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO 2020 and Mercedes-AMG GT3 EVO (2020), 2020 Pirelli “DHE” Tire Model, and 2020 GT World Challenge Season BOP.

The game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
