Reckless Car Pack

There is also a new car pack DLC. This is included in the Seaosn Pass 2, but if you don't have it then it will set you back £3.99.

The Gorbie, Blade, and Stepvan enter the game. The Stepvan is a classic ice cream truck and already looks like a favourite.

Patch notes

Coming in at 8.5GB it's a pretty chucky update that fixes quite a few things. Included in that is support for the new content and DLC, but what else is there?
