The Update 41 "The Change of Balance" for the racing simulation Revhead has been released for Linux on Steam.

Update #41- The Change of Balance

Version: 1.7.10001

Dear Revhead,

Update #41 brings some long awaited changes. The AI became more fierce and cunning, they won't push you out off tracks,but will give you the run for your money.
We rebalanced our racing events according to the changes made to our AI. The events vary in difficulty, they all should be more enjoyable now.
Now you will truly feel the dopamin rush trough your veins after beating the races on the various tracks.
