WHEEL SUPPORT: Feel the true rallying experience with a wheel and pedal set!

With regards to crashes, one major bug was a career mode/sponsors tab crash when selecting an AMP Edition sponsor. This has been fixed in the latest update.

In split-screen, the low audio has been improved so you can now race your family or friends with the noise of true rallying.

When playing online, the friends lobby has been increased to 8 players. This update is coupled with a longer search time in matchmaking, improving the chances that you find a full lobby.

Playgrounds has had the leaderboards updated to show faster target times. Similarly, some objects are no longer available for the wrong event type.
