Next month, console players can enjoy Assetto Corsa Competizione as it was meant to be played. A free PS5 and Xbox Series X|S patch will upgrade the resolution to 4K and boost the framerate to 60 fps.
Before then, Kunos Simulazioni has deployed a new update for the PC version bringing various bug fixes and tweaks for certain car models.
Assetto Corsa Competizione update fixes BMW M4 GT3 balancing issues
Available to download on Steam, update hotfix 1.8.10 fixes an issue with Audi R8 GT3 Evo setups. The aero model for the BMW M4 GT3 has also been tweaked. In addition, the BMW M4 GT3 and McLaren 720S GT3 benefit from “balancing tweaks,” but no further details are provided. These balancing tweaks apply to all track setups.
The 2022 BMW M4 GT3 arrived in Assetto Corsa Competizione as part of a free update last November to replace M6 GT3. However, some fans have complained the M4 GT3’s performance and brakes are overpowered. Before the update, the M4 GT3 was one of the fastest cars in the game and could set ludicrously fast lap times compared to other similar cars.
While the patch notes don’t contain any specific details, we suspect the M4 GT3’s performance was tweaked in the update to make it more fairly balanced and authentic.
For now, the update is only available for the PC version. It’s not clear when it will release on PS4 and Xbox One, but the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S update is planned for 24 February.
