Latest Assetto Corsa PS4 update adds 5 cars, Highlands track & more

Kevin Dooley On May 19, 2017

PlayStation 4 owners of Assetto Corsa have been getting stuck into lots of new content thanks to the recently released v1.14 patch.

The patch adds the Audi Quattro S1 E2, Mazda MX5 NA, Mazda 78B, BMW M4 Akrapovic and the Lamborghini Gallardo SL Step3 to the car roster as part of the update. Players also gain the Porsche 911 RSR 2017 available as a free update for Porsche Pack Volume 3 owners.

Another huge addition via the recent patch is the arrival of the fictional Scottish location “Highlands”. The location provides four different track layouts including a 12,191 metre long version and a drift version to get your powerslides going, you can view the Highlands location below.



Elsewhere the update finally sees the inclusion of the custom championships and custom lobbies features which enable players to set up their own championships and host private lobbies, among other things, should they wish.

Xbox One owners will need to wait a tad longer for the v1.14 update, but rest assured developer Kunos has stated the update will launch “very soon”. You can view more details on each of the four Highlands track layouts below along with the changelog for the v1.14 update..

Highlands - The original layout, 8152 meters long, filled with fast flowing path with curves and several jumps.

Highlands Long - An extension of the original layout, 12191 meters long and has all the characteristics of the original layout. This layout features some slower curves, a fast series of left and right turns, after a passage between rocks and the distinctive 3km long "Cabhag straight"

Highlands Drift - A configuration born to create long powerslides with supercars and hypercars. At 5167 meters long, this layout features long, flat and smooth curves, perfect for holding a constant power slide. The "tower lùb", guards the surroundings at the top of the hill.

Highlands Short - The shortest configuration, only 1714 meters, but based entirely inside the city. Incredibly intense and requires the concentration of a pro.

All four layouts share the same starting positions and pit lane, as well as the first corner and final 2 corners.
