As a first step, the developers have managed to nerf the Regera and Golf GTI 1976. Additionally, an extra measure to prevent lost save files has been implemented. Here’s everything in the update.

  • Reduced the top-end acceleration of the Koenigsegg Regera and adjusted its cornering ability


  • Improved the quality of VOIP for our PS5 players

Save game error/Progress reset
