Wild Run expansion takes players to an event called The Summit, a huge gathering of drivers and racing fans going head to head in a series of extreme events in famous American locations. Players test their skills competing to discover who might become the king of the road. Players are allowed to choose dragsters designed for reaching extremely fast speeds, drift cars that show off inverted control angles, monster trucks that can perform jumps and backflips, or an extensive variety of agile motorcycles from popular brands ready to take on the top racing cars on and off the road.
The graphics engine has been completely modified to gain real-time rendering of graphics with a Physically Based Rendering system. The primary benefit of this is a better photorealistic world, lighting appears significantly more lifelike by day and at night, the depth of field is also improved and texture are now more detailed than ever.

Revoked shaders enhance the reflection on car attires to bring more details. Finally, new weather effects for example, thunderstorms, rain and lightning, with surface changes and vegetation behavior improvements add a level of difficulty when racing through bad weather, and delivers much more realism to the world.
The most awaited new feature in Wild Run is the drift racing. The best thing about this mode is that it’s all about scoring drift points. You also have a choice to double back within a challenge to retry a particular move if you think it will improve your chances of an increased score.
Motorcycles are a great addition to the game. They arrive in the same classes as cars and you will also be able to race against other cars and motorcycles in all the events in the game. Monster Trucks are also a welcomed addition to the game.
