Along with the announcement that the FXX-K supercar would be the cover car, 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni revealed that Assetto Corsa is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 19 in North America and April 22 in Europe.

Already available on Steam, Assetto Corsa is a racing simulation with an emphasis placed on “pure physics realism, with precision accuracy across every aspect from the meticulous car handling to the laser-measured tracks.”

As revealed by Eurogamer, Assetto Corsa on PS4 and Xbox One will include all of the PC Dream Packs (they add new cars and circuits) at launch, with future updates releasing at the same time as PC. Additionally, you’ll find an all-new user-interface, and the game is currently running at 1080p/60fps on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One.

Asked on Twitter about PS4 wheel support, the game’s account said, “All the commercial steering wheels that support PS4 [will be supported].”

Here’s the description:

Players are able to further deepen their playing experience by adjusting the handling and race set-up of each and every car in-game, just as in real life, whereby cars can be individually tuned to cater for your personal racing style.
