The Assetto Corsa Custom Lobby Console Update Has Been Pushed Back

Assetto Corsa console players are going to need to exercise just a little bit more patience. The upcoming update for the title has fallen prey to various submission blocking issues, according to the official Facebook page.

Developer Kunos Simulazioni originally planned to release the comprehensive update in April. As it stands, the Italian team has not yet set a new release window.

It’s not all bad news, though: Kunos shared screenshots showcasing upcoming features. The highly-requested custom lobby option will arrive as promised, and a screenshot shows which options will be available to players.

The available options look to be on par with the current generation of racing titles. Options at players’ disposal include lobby names, password protection, and eligible car lists. Racers can also modify time of day and weather effects, alongside other factors like forced assist and realism settings.

Handily, players can set custom lengths for practice and qualifying sessions, a much-welcome addition. In our review of the game, we found the online offerings lacking, so the addition of these in-depth options certainly helps solve that problem.

The Facebook post refers to custom championships also making an appearance in the update, suggesting this will be one of the most substantial updates Assetto Corsa has received post-release. Console players are still awaiting content like the Mazda 787B and MX-5 models, so it’s possible the update may pave the way for these vehicles and other PC content that hasn’t yet crossed over.

Stay tuned to GTPlanet for more Assetto Corsa news as it happens.
