HIGHLIGHTS
  • New DLC: Off-Road Car Pack
  • New tournament: Super Truck Showdown
  • New free "Rattlesnake Racepark" track
  • Numerous fixes and improvements
We're excited to announce a new tournament and a brand new car pack!

This time around we're unleashing something very special: super truck racing! It's something that many of you have been hoping to see in Wreckfest, and for a good reason too since combining the destruction oriented gameplay of Wreckfest with powerful trucks shredding the dirt is really a match made in heaven. The main event of the "Super Truck Showdown" has powerful off-road trucks ripping the dirt and battling for the win on a bumpy off-road track winding its way along treacherous mountain slopes of the fresh out of the oven Rattlesnake Racepark venue, with monthly events offering even more opportunities to experience the excitement of super truck racing on both dirt and tarmac. As a cherry on top, in case you happen to be a fan of base game cars, you have all the reason to be excited because the tournament shop has a new off-road racing themed bundle for Hotshot, an old fan-favorite!

And if you can't get enough of off-road racing during the tournament, we have some thrilling news for you: the latest DLC "Off-Road Car Pack" not only contains the eponymous star of the tournament, Trophy Runner, but also two other rocking mean machines that do equally well on tarmac as well. Trooper is a legendary American piece of steel that is built to last and will take you to off-road hell and back without breaking a sweat, Trophy Runner is a reincarnated workhorse from the Asia that some say is indestructible, built into a super truck that will give anything a run for their money on both dirt and tarmac, and Sandstorm is a custom beast that eats dirt like there's no tomorrow, and excels on twisty dirt and tarmac tracks with tight corners!

We're also actively working on improving the gameplay experience based on your feedback, and this release contains a number of additional enhancements and bug fixes. We invite you to check out the release notes below for a complete summary of items fixed or improved upon. As always, thanks for all the feedback and please keep it coming!

Hello again Janne! How are you? How is everything in Finland? I dropped by here to say thank you for the new content and thank you for including completely new vehicles. I am so happy you guys listen to the fans and as a huge fan, I'm very happy that you decided to continue supporting the game and make it better. I may not be able to join the official team but I feel like I'm a part of the Wreckfest community. Can't wait for the PS5 upgrade. Please continue supporting Wreckfest and adding even more fun and amazing content. Never stop doing what you set out to do. Keep making amazing content.

Rattlesnake Racepark
Nice to see a new track without intersections. Great powerslide hairpins. Also, from testing with B-Class, the jumps feel really smooth, no hard landing since the landing zones are properly graded. It's like someone took the general idea of Eagle's Peak Motorpark, removed all the "look mom everyone is crashing" sections and turned the general quality up to 100%.

Balance
Starbeast SS feels one step closer to justify the price tag, will do further testing. Good to see Speedie nerfed, generally a step in the right direction. Looking forward, I hope for more balance adjustments, not just a power creep of new vehicles but also nerfs for Raiden RS and Hammerhead RS.

Off-Road Car Pack
AWD for non-special vehicles, has Pandora's box been opened? The offroaders don't seem overpowered, which is good. I hope AWD will remain reserved for vehicles that have weaknesses in other areas.

Blade Audio
Not just an aesthetic improved, greatly helps with manual shifting.

The update is good, I liked everything except Sandstorm (I don't like modern cars, I have that taste). I hope in the next updates the problems that I wrote in the bug reports will be fixed. I also want to ask the Hammerhead RS nerf. At first I thought it was a perfectly balanced car, but after 2 hours of playing, I realized that it was somehow too easy to play on it, and for good reason.
I forgot to say something else. I liked the restored Hotshot very much. I really like these cars, and when the developers add such vehicles or blow off the dust from the old ones, my heart rejoices. Still have a question, the Gremlin restoration will be? The car is very good, but forgotten under the onslaught of new, more powerful cars.

Another fantastic update and new DLC (3 cars & Track) which look amazing, and a great step forward to perfection with the Sim having a large variety of vehicles / tracks to choose from.
I have to tip my hat to Bugbear for making this Sim accessible to a Hardcore Sim Racer such as myself with a PC utilizing Triple Screen Monitors / Wheel and Pedal set ups, keep up the great work. :)

Trophy runner does this weird jumping in a multiplayer lobby and if someone in the server uses it, it causes everyone else to desync.

Now that you say it, I've had three otherwise unexplicable desync / rubberband events with about five or six players total on my server (PC/Steam/rented server), and at least one player was using the Trophy Runner when it happened.

Hi Even with the update, nothing still works on the LAN through Steam, only by the Microsoft GamePass Platform works, still outraged about it.

What's the internal designation for Motorcity Trophy Circuit? I can select it as custom event in single player but no mention of it in the patchnotes.

Not sure whether this is the thread to Report this.
In the 'Sandstorm' Cockpit view the Steering Wheel bolts become misaligned and float in mid air. (See attached Screenshot)

...also wondering if the Sandstorm Steering Wheel could be made smaller / moved down as it obscures the Drivers view...Trooper and Trophy Runner are perfect:)

Otherwise really enjoying the Off Road DLC...keep up the great work Bugbear

Great report but remember to state the system you’re playing on e.g. PS5, PC, XB1, ...

Bugs can be reported on this forum right here or in the bug-reports channel of the official Discord of Wreckfest.
