I am not sure if this is a joke or not, but considering Team 6 Studios’ CEO history, I can safely assume that it isn’t. Team 6 released a new update for FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction that comes with tweaks and improvements for the A.I. and the damage system. What caught my eye though, was the fact that the team has decided to rename the ‘Classic Mode’ to ‘Game Speed’ because of a reviewer complaining that the game was way too fast. I’m not kidding, this is included in the official update changelog.
As always, the update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and you can view the complete changelog bellow:
