There’s a new Wreckfest update for PC and consoles following the recent launch of Season 2 of the racing and destruction game from Bugbear Entertainment.
Along with patching out a potiential cheat in the current monthly Tournament event, a long list of graphics improvements are included. Plus the novice AI setting will now be easier if you’ve been struggling in career mode.
Obviously it’s good to see a continued dedication to developing and improving the game over the longer term. Recent changes to the destruction events has increased the challenge which can make them a little more frustrating, but there’s not much to top the feeling of smashing a motorised sofa out of the lead of a race.
