The latest update has arrived for the off-road epic from Saber Interactive and Focus Entertainment. And as the action moves to Burning Mill in Tennessee, SnowRunner Season 7: Command And Conquer brings racing to the challenges of exploring and tackling difficult terrain.
Along with the release of the dedicated PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions (existing owners can upgrade for free), it’s a slightly surprising decision to add competitive motorsport to SnowRunner, given that most of the game is spent manoeuvring lorries around to try and haul heavy loads or just survive the environment without running out of fuel.
But you do get two settings to test your racing skills, with a dirt circuit, and a rally-ready section both suitable for competing against other drivers or the clock. And fortunately you’ll be given two new suitable vehicles to use, with the Gor By-4 super lightweight scout car, and the Sprinter 43-19, which is a Dakar-style racing truck.
The update also brings a total of 4 square kilometres of Tennessee to explore and enjoy, along with new cosmetic options, and crossplay support for Nintendo Switch gamers. You’re also now able to enjoy crossplay with mods.
