The Wreckfest update 1.90 is now available for download, for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Get your winter tyres ready, there’s a skid warning!
This update brings you the new Winter Fest tournament mode that will get you sliding and skidding sideways on ice and snow. As seasoned Wreckfest fans will already know, the tournament structure is a great way to earn “Fame” and win great prizes (like the epic Battlebus). Speaking of which, there’s a new reward car – the Starbeast SS.
There are a variety of game modes available in the snow – this includes the regular banger races and destruction derby. However, there is also a pretty cool snowball mode that allows you to destroy your opponents with giant snowballs that earn you points. We gave it a go and we suck compared to some of the people at the top of the leaderboard so kudos if that’s you.
The new snow is unfortunately only available in the tournament mode. It doesn’t look like it’s coming to multiplayer or career modes, no matter how much we wish it was! Maybe Bugbear Entertainment will read this and answer our prayers… we can only hope.
Like with most game updates, there are a number of minor bug fixes included in the most recent patch. And if you’re interested, you can read the full details from the developers on their website or below:
