Wreckfest is the racing game of the year and back with a fall update. It may not be the best looking, it may not be the one with the most content, but is damn well the most fun racing experience I have had in a long time.
The developer has been putting in the work and improving on the game since release. There have been some new car and decoration packs. With new special vehicles, like a port-a-potty on wheels!
The best part, they just dropped the fall update. It is going to improve the game once again! Adding new tracks and giving the player what they want, private lobbies. With a huge amount of quality of life fixes. Check out the trailer below, then keep scrolling to find a break down of the update from THQ Nordic and Bugbear Entertainment. Enjoy!
