What is new in Wreckfest update 1.41 (Tournament Update) Changelog?

CONTENT

  • Added Tournament Mode.

The eponymous Tournament Mode is all about putting your racing and wrecking skills to the ultimate test by competing in thrilling challenges, not only against the game, but also against the other players! It all boils down to being a boss by winning trophies in challenges and earning fame, with new challenges coming every day, every week and every month, and then using the acquired fame to claim exclusive rewards from the tournament shop, with new epic rewards each season.

The daily challenges are like bite-size snacks, a fun thing that you can tackle each day to prepare you for the real meat of the Tournament Mode: the prestigious weekly and monthly challenges that make you face-off with the other players around the world in exciting time-limited leaderboard challenges, with the goal of conquering the leaderboards and being crowned the undisputed king of demolition!

Some of the Tournament Mode events are completed with DLC content, but in case you don’t own the specific DLC no need to sweat because everyone can join! That also goes for the computer-controller AI Players, so for the first time you can actually race against computer-controlled DLC cars and special vehicles. We’ve also used the opportunity to tune the game for Tournament Mode so you can expect maximum action and maximum damage – in short, maximum carnage!

Speaking about DLCs, there’s a new one out: American All-Star Car Pack!

  • Added a new free demolition arena: The Maw.

This one’s like a deranged brother of [I]Hellride[/I] and takes the battle onto a platform high-up, with the wimps and losers facing their untimely demise by falling off.

  • Added support for the new DLC: American All-Stars Car Pack.

This new pack adds three new American heavy-hitters, each offering a different kind of gameplay experience. Grand Duke marks the return of the demolition derby royal that packs some serious punch, Wildking is a true American icon with a plenty of power to go forward fast, and Little Thrasher is great little truck that punches above its weight.
