Bugbear Entertainment have made live a new update to Next Car Game: Wreckfest and it brings new content alongside a raft of major and minor updates to the enjoyable destruction derby style PC racer. New off road track Sandpit 3 makes its debut in the game as a forest lined off road circuit lined with occasional concrete barriers and the odd surprise for the unsuspecting driver. Alongside the all new Sandpit 3 course comes a new figure of eight layout attached to the Speedway 8 track, designed to test the nerve and car strength of competitors and sure to be another hit for online gameplay. Damage modelling has been refined and improved in the latest build bringing the standards up to a new level in preparation for a new way of representing and recording damage in game. "Vehicles now have chassis health and armor, the latter being visualized with the previously used sector triangles. Think of them as outer panels of the car: the better the condition of the armor the more incoming damage it absorbs, and when the armor condition drops to zero (black), all damage will go directly to lower chassis health. From now on the vehicle is only totaled when chassis health drops to zero." To aid players with picking fights on track they can actually have a chance of winning, the team over at Bugbear have added damage status indicators next to player names in the on screen HUD, allowing you to strategically chose targets for maximum opportunity to inflict race ending damage! Other more minor improvements in the latest patch include artwork updates on a number of tracks, vehicle shaders and more work on the offline opponent AI code.
