Game: Wreckfest

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Bugbear Entertainment, THQ Nordic

Release Date: 27/08/2019 (PS4 & XONE)

Wreckfest continues to see a wide range of impressive improvements and developments, and this week sees the release of the all-new Wrecknado circuit. A free update for all players on PC, Xbox On and PlayStation 4 comprising of an impressive and imposing structure for massive smashing action. This is joined by the Reckless Car Pack, adding 3 new cars to the mix, costing €/$ 3.99 if purchased separately. It is also included in the Season Pass 2, which given the level of support is highly recommended. Check out the trailer to see the new circuit and cars in action.

Wrecknado is also tied into this month’s tournament: the player’s goal is to wreck as many AI cars on the new track as possible. And the better the position in the race they are, the higher the score that’s awarded. Meanwhile the Reckless Car Pack features the following:

Gorbie: The offbeat community favourite is finally here! This beauty is pure fun to drive and even more to demolish!
Blade: American racing at it’s finest, this 80s muscle looks way too fast even when standing still!
Stepvan: With this pop culture classic ice cream truck, you won’t be serving ice cream but wrecks!

Besides the core additons there are a wide range of fixes and improvements, full changelog below. As ever, it is great to see this level of support and wonderful passion from the community. I hope they can look into the PC wheel issues on a future update, that is a core area requiring attention, along with the need for improvements to performance on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
