I only just purchased the Series upgrade for my XBOX series X. I can also say the performance is terrible with many frame drops and lots of stuttering. The game is simply unplayable. The game ran better before I purchased the Series Upgrade. I hope there are improvements soon or I will be requesting a refund.From Wreckfest Discord today:

So have there been no other reports of this at all?
There's a bunch of us who play Wreckfest every Wednesday night and 3 of us (who all play on Series X, with and without the upgrade), all have the console shut itself down after a few hours of playing. Everyone else plays on Series S or an XB1 model with no issue. Just us 3 on the Series X. I highly doubt all 3 of our consoles are defective, since it's only Wreckfest where it happens

We have a number of stability improvements in the pipeline, scheduled for the next update.

Thanks! Hopefully they help with this issue. Once the update drops, i'll report back to let you know if the issue still occurs

Thanks, appreciated! We can't be 100% certain these will address that specific issue but it's likely.
If there are still any lingering issues even after the update we will of course take a another look.
By the way - you will love the upcoming performance improvements as well.

Janne, we going see updates to PC and Console versions before end of June? Before Bugbear goes on vacation in July?

The upgrade isn't even available in the Microsoft store currently, I've been trying to buy it via the in game link for days
If you're a lucky owner of either PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S it's time to shift into an even higher gear because Wreckfest is now available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, and comes with a rocking free bonus car!
Experience carnage in even higher definition, wreck online with up to 24 players, and crash in style with enhanced visuals, including dynamic dirt, better textures and improved visual effects. Owners of Wreckfest for last gen consoles can upgrade to the enhanced current gen version for $9.99/9.99€. Note that for the time being on Series X|S the upgrade can be only purchased using the link in the game's main menu.
