Wreckfest has received its February Update. You can now download this patch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You will find that Wreckfest February Update has new content, various bug fixes, adjustments, and improvements. Something that stands out in this patch is that they added two new tracks, Tribend (Speedway with 3 track variants) and Thunderbowl (Demolition Derby Arena).
Wreckfest is a wild driving game developed by Bugbear, a studio known for the Flatout saga. Mixing traditional driving with a casual touch and destruction events, this is considered the spiritual heir of Destruction Derby thanks to its system of damage and physical in cars and its great depth in mechanics. Below you will find some key patch notes regarding Wreckfest February Update.
- 2 free new tracks: Tribend Speedway and Thunderbow
- PS4 Voice Chat added
- Fixed “Reset Effect” setting title and description being switched.
- Improved positional audio in Wreckfest.

- Improved engine audio volume balancing across different cars.
- Stationary vehicles no longer repeatedly trigger the contact sound effect.
