    Dear followers,

    every year 25th April is celebrated as the Liberation Day in Italy. This day marks the end of fascist regime after the end of the Second World War in 1945, and the day commemorates the people who laid down their lives fighting the fascism.
    25th April is a public holiday in Italy. There are robust celebrations around the country to commemorate this day. Large processions are taken out in major parts of the country, and a general sense of celebration and bonhomie is prevalent throughout Italy on this day.

    The next update of Assetto Corsa Early Access will include the multiplayer mode and was previously scheduled for tomorrow's release; our work in the last two months has been strongly focused to complete and deliver this feature properly. We have also made investments to set several free public servers for our users and a proper lobby for servers created by, users, leagues, simracing websites and so on. However, due to the 25th April celebration, we might have some issues to get the best possible support from our italian based server provider, right at launch day.

    Multiplayer is one of the most awaited features for a lot of simracing enthusiasts, but in order to properly test in public the multiplayer mode, we need to get the best technical support possible; for this reason, and also in order to improve multiplayer functionalities and to develop some additional features, tomorrow's release has been shifted to Friday 2nd, May. This delay will allow us to release the multiplayer in a working day, getting fast and proper support by our provider, if needed. We are pretty sure you understand that we are working at our best to provide the best gaming experience we can. Thank you for your kind support and attention.

    Cari followers,

    il prossimo update della beta di Assetto Corsa che includerà il supporto multiplayer era inizialmente previsto per il rilascio di domani: negli ultimi mesi abbiamo concentrato le nostre attività per migliorare e completare le funzionalità multigiocatore, e abbiamo investito per provvedere gratuitamente diversi server di gioco ufficiali che saranno affiancati da quelli creati da giocatori, leghe, portali di simracing, e così via.

    Tuttavia, domani 25 Aprile si celebra come ogni anno la Festa della Liberazione, e il rilascio di un update che coinvolge non solo le nostre attività, ma anche quelle di fornitori esterni durante una festività nazionale, potrebbe creare difficoltà nel fornire adeguato supporto e risolvere tempestivamente eventuali problemi e bug risultanti da un testing di massa, per di più particolarmente atteso.

    Il multiplayer è una delle feature più amate da molti appassionati di guida virtuale: per testarlo e supportarlo adeguatamente, riteniamo indispensabile operare nelle migliori condizioni possibili, e dopo aver valutato le opzioni disponibili, abbiamo deciso di spostare la release attesa per domani, che è totalmente focalizzata sul multiplayer, alla prossima settimana. Questo ci darà l'opportunità di perfezionare diverse funzionalità secondarie e di lanciare il multiplayer in un giorno lavorativo, potendo approfittare del miglior supporto tecnico dei nostri provider. Siamo certi che comprendete che stiamo lavorando al nostro meglio per fornirvi la migliore esperienza di gioco di cui siamo capaci. Grazie per il vostro incredibile supporto.

    Yeehaw! Now there will be an end to the needy posts, well the multiplayer one anyway. Well done Team Kunos shame you could not hold on till the fourth, then we could have all cheered 'May the Fourth be with you'. Better get some sleep in now, so I can play for a few days straight without a kip. :)
