wreckfest update 2019

Bugbear’s Wreckfest has been out on PC for a little over a year now and is finally releasing on consoles. To celebrate this release, an absolutely MASSIVE update has been dropped for free.

This ~7GB behemoth of a patch does everything. It adds new 5 tracks, 5 new cars, way more AI variation, and a huge array of general improvements from a minimap to vastly improved collision mechanics. Just to show you how big the update is, here are the general game improvements, only a small part of the entire patch.

GAME IMPROVEMENTS

  • Polished and more detailed environments.
  • Animated objects such as flags and balloons.
  • New paint jobs for most vehicles.
  • Collision improvements: the cars no longer clip each other.
  • Quick match functionality for multiplayer.
  • Streamlined server browser.
  • Overhauled server lobby user interface and improved usability.
  • Improved car and upgrade selection in the garage/pit.
  • New daytimes for many tracks.
  • Improved career menu screens.
  • Multiplayer: Bots now get auto-kicked also during races if a human player joins and takes their slot.
  • Multiplayer: At event start, players not ready won’t be kicked as long as they have a valid car.
  • New track and event specific loading screens.
  • A save data backup is created automatically whenever the game is updated.
  • Minimap (can be disabled in the Settings menu).

It’s also been announced that Wreckfest will be receiving a season’s pass encompassing a total of 8 DLCs, the first 3 will release this September. Across those 8 DLC packs, you’ll get a total of 20 new cars, 20 new roof decorations, and a car customization pack including some exclusive items.

  • Car pack 1: September 10th, 2019
  • Customization pack 1: September 24th, 2019
  • Car Pack 2: October 22nd, 2019

If you’re not sure what Wreckfest is, you’re seriously missing out. It’s undeniably the best destruction derby racer on the market and kind of works as a spiritual successor to FlatOut – it’s even developed by the same team, Bugbear. In it, you’ll be racing/ramming against up to 24 other players/AI in a chaotic flurry of steel and rubber.
