The last time we heard about Assetto Corsa
, we got the bad news that it had been delayed until August
. Since then, we've had nothing but radio silence until today when the developers confirmed that one particularly popular car brand would make it into the game: Porsche.
This is a big deal. If you're a fan of racing games, you've no doubt noticed that the prolific manufacturer often fails to make an appearance in games despite being one of the biggest names in the industry. Instead we get names like RUF which are nice, but simply aren't the same. The reason is that EA has control over the license for video games and they don't just hand it out to anyone.
Porsche cars were announced as DLC for the PC version of the game (which has already released), but it's not clear whether or not it will get the same treatment on console or if it will simply be packaged with the base game. All we know is that Porsche will definitely make an appearance on Xbox One when Assetto Corsa
releases on August 30th.
