Pacific Drive Performance: How To Improve It

Here is how to improve Pacific Drive Performance in the latest survival car-simulator.

For what its worth, Pacific Drives takes you into a post-apocalyptic dystopian future where you traverse what is left of this radiation-ridden world using your car, and taking care of the car too. The elements of sci-fi and weirdness are present, and they're here to give you scare in some way or the another.
You tinker your car to look it that way, making the game a weird and out-of-the-box addition to the evergrowing list of survival titles launched in 2024. It allows you to form a relationship with your vehicle, as you use it to traverse empty roads and distant places within the game
The game's official summary reads, “Pacific Drive is a survival game played from a first-person perspective. The game is set in 1998 in the Olympic Exclusion Zone in the Pacific Northwest, which the player traverses on foot or in a station wagon. The player can customize their vehicle in their garage, which acts as their base of operations.”
