Arriving for September 2021, a new Wreckfest Folk Frenzy Tournament begins, alongside an update across the PC, PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game. New content includes two layouts for Firwood Motocenter, with a Rally circuit and a reverse version, along with a retro racing Firefly reward bundle.
On the downside, the update also removes the Carmageddon content which was released in August. And the video promoting the zombie mode has also disappeared from the official THQ Nordic Youtube account, which is a little odd considering they acquired the license to the franchise.
Either way, there are also a number of fixes and improvements, including for multiplayer on the PC, which is definitely welcome, along with the Wardigger being able to withstand more damage, and putting cars into 1st gear automatically when you rest your vehicle.
