New WreckFest Update released

Good news for all demolition derby fans out there.

BugBear Entertainment has released a new update for their Wreckfest smash ’em up racer formerly known as Next Car Game.  The update contains a good number of fixes and optimizations and also introduces a new Rally Cross circuit you might recognize. Keep in mind that the track featured in this update is still a work-in-progress.

The patch also features further refinements to the tire model of Wreckfest. Besides the tire model also, the suspension system has been reworked. Both the tire and suspension tweaks should result in a more realistic and responsive driving feel.

In line with the physics updates, BugBear Entertainment reworked the gamepad and keyboard controls and implemented a Speed Sensitivity setting that should help you not to go over the slip angle of the tire.

On the graphics side, grass and shadow rendering has been improved and therefore, could have a positive effect on your frame-rates. Also, the performance of the dedicated server has been improved. For more info, check out the changelog below, or visit the Wreckfest page on Steam.
