There’s a new Wreckfest Winter Fest tournament and update available now from BugBear Entertainment as snow falls on every circuit in the racing and destruction derby game.
In addition to snow, there’s also a new Snowball Run event which allows you to toss and destroy other vehicles with the balls rolling down the tracks. And the new tournament reward car is the Starbeast SS.
The tracks look great covered in snow, particularly the city-based ones. And the new Snowball Run event should bring even more chaos to competing for the tournament points to unlock new cars and cosmetics.
But there’s also a game update which brings some more serious fixes, including making sure DualShock and DualSense controllers will now work for PC gamers playing Wreckfest, tweaks to various cars, and audio improvements.
