A fix to last week’s Assetto Corsa Competizione Console update released on Thursday (6th July) and addresses some of the biggest issues.

Last week, the console edition of Assetto Corsa Competizione was updated to v1.9 and with that, the new physics and changes to the title that PC players have been able to drive with since April. Unfortunately, it didn’t come without its share of issues, some of which were found to be race ending in Multiplayer races.

In our video on the Traxion.GG YouTube channel last week, John Munro took on some of the multiplayer lobbies following the update. He unfortunately experienced some of those glitches, including the car accelerating on its own and the complete loss of grip at random times.

Thankfully, Kunos and 505 Games have addressed it in the v1.9.1 patch that released on Thursday (6th July), as well as some other issues found since the launch.

“Fixed an issue where player’s cars lose all traction and continue accelerating to excessive speed” reads the second line of the patch notes. That is pretty much exactly what John and many others have been experiencing.

In John’s play through (just past 9:30 in the video), while racing at Monza, he hit a kerb and the car didn’t handle it well. In the next turn, the car loses complete control as the car accelerates on its own. Later on, during qualifying, at Paul Ricard, the car begins to infinitely accelerate down the straightaway.

Some other important issues were also addressed. We’ve provided the official Patch Notes from 505 below.

Key Art updated

Another interesting update in the v1.9.1 is the change in the Key Art for the title. We found this when updating on PlayStation 5 that the previously promoted vehicle, that Lamborghini, is now a BMW.

Specifically, that is the #46 Team WRT BMW M4 GT3, which was recently driven by Augusto Farfus, Maxime Martin and MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi and finished sixth at last weekend’s 24 Hours of Spa. The car was previously in the game, mind you, but the livery came with the v1.9 update last week.

It’s not uncommon for gaming titles to update their Key Art, with new seasons and updates that constantly release. This one managed to catch our eye as that Lambo has been a constant for years.

The rest of the patch notes for all console editions are posted below.
