Console ‘Red Pack’ & Porsche Pack Vol 2 OUT NOW!
Here we are, into the beginnings of 2017 and Kunos Simulazioni and 505 Games are right on it, as today saw the release of the ‘Red Pack’ and Porsche Pack Volume 2 for PS4 and Xbox One.
In fairness, they did say the simultaneous landing of the packs would happen but as has been seen previously, it’s not always the case to blindly believe this will be the case.
Both of the packs which have been available on PC for months, were very much eagerly awaited by players on both console platforms. And so to get them two dropping at the same time is going to put many of them in a right cheery mood.
Assetto Corsa ‘Red Pack’ – Contents
- Ferrari SF15-T
- Ferrari F138
- Ferrari 488 GT3
- Maserati 250F 6C
- Maserati 250F T2 12C
- Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4
- Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SuperVeloce
- Red Bull Ring circuit
Deciding between the two however isn’t the only issue facing those on Xbox One right now. As has become almost routine for those players on the Microsoft system, experiencing new frustration with additional content has shown itself again: this time being that Season Pass holders are unable to unlock the content they are entitled to. Kunos are aware and looking into it and hopefully this problem will be resolved in not too long.
Assetto Corsa – Porsche Pack Volume 2
- Porsche 911 GT3 RS
- Porsche 718 Spyder RS
- Porsche Cayman GT4
- Porsche 718 Boxster S Manual Transmission
- Porsche 718 Boxster S PDK
- Porsche 919 Hybrid 2015
- Porsche 911 GT1
- Porsche 962c Long Tail
- Porsche 962c Short Tail
For those able to download the content and have it work as expected, plenty of new vehicles and a new track awaits them.
Be it taking the duo of Ferrari F1 cars around the numerous locations the game has to offer or hanging on to a Porsche 962c as it tries to wrestle away from your control. The new thrills are due to be bountiful with all the new machinery and new track that is included inside the two packs.
This latest release brings the console versions of the game to v1.11 and along with a number of fixes, delivers another free Porsche. The Porsche Cayenne is the second of the free Porsche triplets promised, giving everyone some more Porsche to play with even if they do not buy any of the new content.
No word on the console Porsche Pack Volume 3 right now, but that can be forgiven. However could it also make an appearance this month? It will be interesting to see what Kunos does, as the delayed 911 RSR 2017 that was meant to be in the PC release of the pack last December, is pencilled in to become a free upgrade to that pack some time this month.
Available now, the Porsche Pack 2 and the Red Pack are included in the console Season Pass, or can be purchased separately on the PlayStation and Microsoft Stores.
