Demolition derby game will be released by THQ Nordic for the Playstation 5. The demolition derby game will be released on June 1 and owners of the PS4 version can upgrade to the next-gen version. The Xbox version recently got an update for the Series X but will not be upgraded.
The PlayStation 5 version of Wreckfest runs in 4k resolution at 60fps, has improved graphics and supports up to 24 players in multiplayer mode. The game will also receive support for haptic effects from Sony’s DualSense controller.
According to publisher THQ Nordic, the PS5 version has improved shadows and lighting, dynamic mud on vehicles, higher-resolution textures, and more vegetation in the surrounding area. Godrays have also been added and skid marks with new effects are displayed. The PS5 version also offers much faster loading times.
The PS5 version of Wreckfest costs 40 euros, but those who already own the game on the PS4 can buy an upgrade for 10 euros. The game is also already available on Xbox consoles and part of the Game Pass subscription, but there is no upgrade for the Series X and S, developer Bugbear Entertainment confirms. Recently, the Xbox version got a free update that makes the game on the Series X run at 60fps instead of 30fps, but the game did not receive other improvements. THQ Nordic does not say anything about the possible arrival of an Xbox upgrade.
