The sports car racing simulator Assetto Corsa: Competizione is best enjoyed when using a third-party steering wheel. That said, a few annoying issues using steering wheels on consoles got resolved in Update v1.8.9.1.

For instance, the issue where default steering wheel presets do not show up is now fixed. Furthermore, PS5 players who were unable to save their custom setups when a steering wheel is connected can rejoice with the bug finally taken care of.

On the Xbox, there was an annoying bug that removed all force feedback (FFB) from the steering wheel when returning to the game from a suspended state. There’s no need to worry now, so long as players patch their clients up to the latest version.
