Forza Motorsports is up for getting some serious competition on the Xbox One from a game known as Assetto Corsa. In addition to being one of the most beautiful video games on the Windows PC platform right now, it also supports VR.

Those interested in the game should know that the game can be had for £30 from Amazon UK right now. It’s a good pre-order deal, especially since the game is turning out to be a solid racing experience.

Assetto Corsa is destined to hit the Xbox One on June 3rd, just a few days away from E3 2016. We believe the developer could have benefited greatly by promoting the console versions of the game at E3 before releasing it, but this move could be seeing as a sign of confidence.

“We fought a lot to have full HD also on Xbox One, but there’s no way for us to do it,” Massarutto told Eurogamer. “Forza did a very good job – but they have dedicated libraries. Regardless, they did a really good job. When I played the game, I thought ‘wow’. They’ve done such a good job with the visuals.”

This awesome game is expected to launch with over 80 cars and some of the most famous race tracks in the world. Thankfully, Silverstone, Monza and Hockenheim are among the few.

When it comes down to the gameplay, Assetto Corsa has some of the best physics in the business, leadings many to claim it as the best racing simulator overall. It should be interesting to see how the game holds up on the Xbox One when compared to the likes of Forza Motorsports 6 and Project Cars. The graphics are indeed pretty, but clean and smooth performance matters most in a racing sim.

The game will also come to the PlayStation 4 on the same June 3 date. But with the possibility of Polyphony launching the next Gran Turismo video game at E3 2016, Assetto Corsa may just end up being left in the dust.
