MX vs ATV Legends update 1.08 brings handling improvements, bug fixes & more

MX vs ATV Legends landed on PC and consoles back in June. While it’s an enjoyable entry in the long-running MX vs ATV franchise, the game lacks polish and feels unfinished in some areas - despite being delayed for a month.

Since its launch, Rainbow Studios has released several patch updates in response to community feedback. The latest patch has rolled out, with update 1.08 bringing an assortment of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and new features.

Handling improvements

One of the MX vs ATV Legends’ main issues is the stiff handling. Update 1.08 addresses this, with “improved automatic shifting logic to prevent random loss of momentum,” as well as suspension improvements that reduce bouncing during hard landings and bottoming out. Terrain deformation physics are also improved, providing more feedback when hitting ruts in the dirt.

Additionally, the latest update adds new button configurations for manual and automatic transmission settings, DLC support for dedicated servers, audio improvements, new music tracks, and a new Freeride Trails online playlist.

Rainbow Studios is committed to improving MX vs ATV Legends in the future, with a “dedicated team of developers” that will work on improving the game “well into the future.”

MX vs ATV Legends update 1.08 is live for all platforms including PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. You can check out the patch notes below for a full list of changes.
