For years, Xbox’s go-to racing game has been the Forza franchise, which has received numerous updates and even its own permanent exhibit. Starting soon, however, Forca looks to gain a running partner in the form of Assetto Corsa from studio 505 Games.

Assetto Corsa has seen success since its initial launch on PCs in 2013, but hasn’t left the platform behind with this latest launch. 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni released a video on YouTube to showcase the game’s cover car, the Ferrari FXX-K, as well as detail various pre-order bonuses.  The video can be found below.

The Xbox One release date is set for April 22. Those people informed enough to pre-order the title will also get the Performance Pack, which will include three more high-octane cars, the Ferrari 488 GTB, the Audi R8 V10 Plus, and the Corvette C7 Stingray.

Assetto Corsa was called the “highest-rated PC racing franchise of 2014”, and in June of last year, 505 Games said that they would be expanding its highly-regarded simulator to consoles in 2016. With that promise in mind, 505 Games and Kunos Simulazioni look to deliver the same calibre of driving realism to console fans this April.
