Assetto Corsa Porsche Pack 3

Private Lobbies Entering QA Testing Next Week

505 Games’ Community Manager, Antonela Pounder, has given us a new update on the status of Private Lobbies, as well as the Porsche Pack 3, for the console version of Assetto Corsa.

Private Lobbies are one of the most anticipated features for the console version of Assetto Corsa, and Antonela has stated that the feature will be coming sooner rather than later! The functionality will be entering Quality Assurance internal testing next week, to make sure it works as intended. After that is done, then we will see the lobbies coming to the sim.

The Porsche Pack 3 is also going to be coming in the near future as well. The DLC will be heading to submission next week, so hopefully a release date will come very soon!

For more information, read the press release below. Are you excited to see Private Lobbies coming to console?

PRIVATE LOBBIES
Firstly, we want to thank our console players for their continued patience regarding private lobbies. We get asked almost every day when they’re likely to land on console and be rest assured, our team have been working incredibly hard to make them happen. It’s not an easy task for the developers but today, we’re happy to announce that private lobbies are heading into QA next week, so watch this space… The finish line is in sight!
