I know what you’re probably thinking: What the heck is Assetto Corsa? Sounds like a fancy ice cream. True, but it’s actually a very fancy racing sim, previously only available on PC. Having won a lot of hardcore racing fans over the past couple of years, it’s finally coming to console with a brand new interface. And, as it happens, I’ve just played an already impressive, pre-alpha version on PS4.
At risk of jumping the gun, if I had to say right now how good I think it is, I would say the simulation is the best I’ve ever experienced (though how it’ll work as a long-term console game is something I’ll reserve judgement on). So let me tell you why – from a sim point of view at least, this could leave Gran Turismo and Forza sucking on its exhaust fumes.
