Wreckfest now runs at 4K/60 FPS on Xbox Series X
A new update has been released for Wreckfest that lifts the 30 FPS cap for Xbox Series X owners.
Following today’s tournament update, the game now runs at 4K/60 FPS on the Series X. Sadly, Xbox Series S owners are stuck with 4K/30 FPS and there’s no mention of a PlayStation 5 upgrade for the game.
In addition to the upgrade, today’s update introduces the Rally Circuit and Rally Circuit Reverse routes for Pinehills Raceway and a new Tournament called Woodland Dash that features various racing and slalom events. Taking part in the tournament will reward players with the Hammerhead RS.
“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,” developer Bugbear Entertainment added. “Worth a note in particular is that we’re now confident that the leaderboard tournament events should now work more reliably on Xbox so hopefully no one will be missing out on their rewards from now on. Please do note that updating tournament info (rankings, rewards) might still take some time, but it should no longer fail completely.”
