(XBX) We've been working on improving the performance on Series X|S behind the scenes and we're happy to let you know we have some serious improvements in the pipeline.
We're aware that no amount of visual goodies can make up for a choppy framerate and a high-octane racing game like Wreckfest deserves better, so let's make it happen!

Just accident using 60hz with my xbox series s display settings, normaly it is always 120hz.
Cold war performance is fixed when not use 120hz mode.

Maybe that is fix also that game, I hope so……

Update:

Since the series X upgrade has release the online servers have been horrendously laggy to the point its made the game unplayable.

This must be a joke, we paid for an upgrade that ruined the game, you guys should take some notes from Metro Exodus devs.

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

jannesBB — Today at 2:42 AM
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.

jannesBB — Today at 2:44 AM

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.

Guys, although I must 100% agree that something is really wrong, and it was not correct from the developers to launch this update, with the knowledge of the poor performance (I won't believe they didn't know it), I think we should give them the benefit of doubt to emend themselves.
Yes, it costed money (ok...not that much) and the attitude was not correct, but history also tell us, that these same guys delivered MANY good things and worked a lot to have this awesome game.

Just to remind, that we can (Series X and S) to uninstall the update and play the game as it was before (until they release a patch).
On Series X, the game runs at 4k 60fps very stable.

Let's cross fingers to have a patch soon.

I think Wreckfest is the best car/racing game out there just based on the gameplay. I have a Series X and I was enjoying the game at a flawless 60fps. When I saw the "upgrade" launching I went for it, thinking it would actually improve the game, but it didn't. It made the performance so bad that I stopped playing it for a few days. After a while I ended up uninstalling the "upgrade" and it was back to performing flawless again. Why did I have to pay for the game to run worse?

I only notice the performance issues when I try a race in 24 player lobbies...so basically by myself most of the time because people hardly join them :p. But it runs completely fine in 16 player lobbies and I still get the graphical improvements.

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.

Website: https://order.wreckfestgame.com/
Discord: https://discord.gg/wreckfest
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
