Maserati Levante Accompanies Assetto Corsa’s September Console Update

September is proving to be quite the busy month for Assetto Corsa regardless of the platform. This month’s console patch has already been outlined, addressing issues like screen tearing, smoothing out the frame-rate, and adding two additional difficulty levels, among other things.

Following that was the news that the picturesque Black Cat County would be coming to console users, accompanying this month’s update. Available in three configurations, the fictional track, loosely based on the American South, offers players the opportunity to experience the game in a way not currently possible on consoles: the feeling of driving on an open road.

The news for September’s console update keeps on rolling: the Maserati Levante S will also accompany this month’s festivities, as confirmed by Kunos on its official Facebook page. While appearing to be heavy, the Levante is surprisingly nimble and will attack corners in a very ‘no nonsense’ fashion. Packing a throaty V6 growl, and charging to a top speed just north of 260 km/h (160+ mph), the Levante is more track-prepared than one might realize.

While the console version of the racer will continue to lag behind the original release on PC for an undisclosed period of time, both platforms will soon be able to enjoy the upcoming Porsche DLC packs, set to release before month’s end.

September is proving to be quite the busy month for Assetto Corsa indeed. Swing by our Assetto Corsa forum section to discuss all the latest news on the game, regardless of platform.

    It better be fun to drive, that car is fu’ugly! Is there a Porsche Cayenne coming on DLC? Would give it something to race against. There are better looking more interesting Maserati out there I’d like to see.

      No I meant Cayenne, a Cayman would leave that barge for dust.
      I’d like to see the MC12, very pretty car, not in many games.

      Understood. I read somewhere that only pre-ordering the physical disc copy gets you the Prestige Pack (the one the Gallardo is in) and that pre-ordering the digital copy only gets you the Performance Pack, which is only three cars I believe. Either way, I’m sorry that you’re bonuses didn’t work, that sucks =(

    I remember some douchers complained when this was added on PC, because adding an SUV to a sim makes it not a sim anymore.

      Haha… It is the same thing as saying that there is SUVs in real life and now it is not real life anymore. It makes no sense at all…
      For now the Levante is on it’s own, alone. But they’ll probably add more SUVs/crossovers to the game. Porsche’s DLCs is coming and I’ll not be surprised if any Cayenne GTS shows up. I like to race with street legal cars much more than race cars so, for me, it would be awesome! Can’t wait to test all the Porsches in Nordschleife.
