Refract Studios has released their latest 5007 experimental build for their survival racer Distance which acts as a release candidate for the upcoming full release.
The development team has been extremely busy lately with fine tuning their game and re-writing areas of the title to make the experience as polished as possible. Following feedback of this build, Refract will decide if any late changes need to be made before they release the title.
The development team are also asking for opinions from fans regarding whether or not track creators should be granted the option to clear leaderboard times from their creations after they have undergone updates.
You can view the full changelog of the latest build below.
