DoesXbox Series X|S have Assetto Corsa Competizione?

Can you play ACC on PS5?
From the 24th of February 2022, ACC will be finally available on PS5 and we can’t wait for it!
That’s awesome since all the current Playstation sim racers have been waiting for this day to come and now it’s finally here!
Can I play Assetto Corsa with Joystick or controller?
Well, theoretically yes, but are you sure about that?
We all know that racing with a controller will give you a very sloppy car control and immersion experience.
Also, playing Racing Games with a controller can give you an unrealistic driving experience so it’s recommended that you buy/use a racing wheel like Fanatec, Thrustamsters, or Logitech G29.
So if I were you and if I were on a budget I would consider getting myself an affordable sim racing steering wheel, a set of pedals, and a racing seat so that my laptimes will improve so much that it will be like experiencing Assetto Corsa Competizione for the first time.
Can a laptop run Assetto Corsa Competizione?
Yes you can, though always remember about the ACC system requirements.
You SHOULDN’T expect to run the game at maximum settings, but you may reduce them for a smoother gameplay.
You should also pay attention to how much RAM your laptop needs and what GPU you’re on.
To wrap up:
So here were the ACC system requirements and I hope you got some useful information about how to get ready for one of the most realistic Racing Simulators on the market.
Remember that in order for your racing experience to be phenomenal, the minimum requirements are necessary but depending on your personal preference and budget you can decide to invest in some better hardware to level up the graphics quality and feeling of immersion.
So for that, I’d recommend following the recommended system requirements over the minimum ones.
You will see a significant improvement in terms of visuals, graphics, and physics realism.
So again, I hope this article was useful to you and that it helped you out!
As always, happy sim racing!
