505 Games announced today a partnership with Assetto Corsa developer Kunos Simulazioni to publish the racing simulator Assetto Corsa on PS4 and Xbox One next year.

Assetto Corsa New Features:
- Over one hundred high-performance cars, including the Team Lotus 98T, the Pagani Zonda R, the Ferrari LaFerrari, the Mercedes C9 and the McLaren MP4-12C GT3.
- Over twenty different track configurations, including famed courses such as Silverstone Circuit, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Autodromo Nazionale Monza, and Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
- Single and Multiplayer racing modes, with customizable Race Weekends, preset Challenges or full-scale Career Mode.
- Refined race-craft AI, with up to twenty-four cars competing for the podium places in the PC version of the game.
- While many that don’t know this title will possibly wonder about having another racing game on console, Assetto Corsa actually differs from the rest, as it’s as close to a simulator as we’ll probably get on PS4 and Xbox One.
505 Games released a set of beautiful screenshots from the PS4/Xbox One versions, which can be viewed in the gallery below:
