Time to resume my career. My only issue with it was the 30fps cap. The new tournament thing looked like fun from what i could make out in the trailer.

Seems really strange that they have gone about PS5 and Series X enhancements so differently. First game i can think of where there is a free next gen update on one console, and a paid enhanced upgrade on the other.

The paid update is coming to Xbox later this year. Maybe it was just easy to do a quick 60FPS update and give it a boost whilst its in Game Pass. It's certainly got me back playing it.

I did not realise the full update is coming later. Still, thats interesting also as it means as a value proposition its less appealing on the Series consoles (most would argue that 60fps is more important than real time dirt on cars etc).

I’d try before you buy, somehow. Maybe the FPS boost elevates it into a territory where it’s not boring as gooseberry fool to play. Should have made all of the cars 40mph faster than they already are.

Without question. Wreckfest is so much fun. Dirt 5 is just awful

(Split to a new thread. Seems to be exciting news for Racing GRcade so it's a shame to have it buried in a thread from ages back. Have fun!)

I might be tempted to give this a go too. The last racing game I really got into, apart from Mario Kart and Wipeout, was probably Burnout Paradise at the time of its original release!

Haven't updated as of yet, but I certainly will today. I had planned on doing so yesterday, but Monster Hunter called.

I think I'd happily pay the £10 upgrade if/when it comes to Xbox. The game is great.

Yeah I found the game boring to play as well. Might be more of a laugh in online modes but the career mode is a chore.

It has one of the most aggressive types of "you have to get X stars/points/awards to continue or tough gooseberry fool" single player modes that can absolutely grind the game to a halt if you get stuck.
