Next Car Game: Wreckfest – New update adds new tracks & introduces new health/damage system

Bugbear Entertainment has released a new update for Next Car Game: Wreckfest that contains quite a few improvements, introduces a new damage system, and adds the new track Sandpit 3.

According to the team, this new track offers high-speed racing through the forested hilly scenery, something that will probably ‘bring back sweet memories of a certain well-known racing game of yesteryear.’

This patch will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client, and can find below its complete changelog.
