Let’s kick off by saying how it great it is to see Wreckfest finally getting out there and being discovered by a larger audience. Following a protracted development, it was a real joy to finally see the game released, however the 30fps console versions lacked the fluidity of the PC and some games lose more from others when it comes to frame rate and resulting experience. Driving games tend to be the most affected because motion is critical to the experience and full screen motion is the norm. On Wreckfrest, there is the addition of detailed physics and a multitude of objects strewn across the racetrack. All a marvel to enjoy when running at 60fps. But now with the power of the new generation of consoles we finally see the game as it was meant to be enjoyed, already available with various improvements for the Xbox Series X, today see’s the announcement for Playstation 5 with various improvements.
Wreckfest PS5 will reportly offer enhanced visuals such as dynamic dirt on vehicles, better textures, and improved visual effects. Additionally, it also runs in 4K resolution delivering the expected 60 frames per second. The multiplayer now features 24 players so you can expect some absolute bedlam online. An overview of the key additions are as follows:
Dynamic dirt on vehicles
Improved shadows, particles, and environment lighting
Higher resolution textures
Increased amount of foliage
New visual effects for skidmarks
DualSense haptic effects
Much faster loading times
