Game Update 1.63 [April 2024]

Hello Zwifters!

Phased rollout of game version 1.63 begins today to Windows / macOS machines. Here’s what’s in it:

  • Zwift Play: Brake sensitivity can now be adjusted in Settings, ranging from maximum sensitivity to off.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause cyclists with connected steering devices to automatically steer towards the center of a lane after a while.
  • Virtual Shifting: Fixed an issue in workouts where shifting quickly after starting a Free Ride block could result in the current gear being reset to 12.
  • Added eight routes now available for freeride: Loop de Loop, Zwift Games 2024 Epic (level 10 required), Castle Crit Run, Big Flat 8, Mountain Mash, Spiral into the Volcano, Castle Crit, Jurassic Coast (level 10 required).
  • In-game achievement banners are now displayed for a longer period to make sure you don’t miss a celebratory moment.
  • Fixed an issue that could potentially make it difficult to dismiss the Ride Report when navigating with a keyboard, Apple TV remote, or Zwift Play.
  • Fixed a potential crash that could occur when capturing a screenshot.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent some treadmills from connecting to Zwift.


  • Fixed an issue that could cause screenshots to not be saved on some Android devices.

Known Issues

  • Route progress bar in Heads Up Display (HUD) may disappear when riding Zwift Games Epic 2024 approximately 44.3km / 27.5 miles into the route as you cross the Mayan Loop Intersection, but will not impede route completion badge from awarding.
  • If you do not see the Braking sensitivity slider: make sure 1) your Play controllers are paired and 2) switch between tabs in the Settings menu.

Phased rollout to Android / iOS / tvOS devices has begun.
Phased rollout to Windows / macOS devices continues.

Phased rollout to all OS platforms is complete.

Yay for new routes! :smiley:

(Calls to shorten the achievement banner display time incoming in 5…4…3…2… :laughing: )


Still no removal of the dark smudges on ultra profile aka basic shadows that literally not one single paying customer actually wants?


Zwift Insider notes on this update: Zwift Update Version 1.63 (128453) Released | Zwift Insider


Thank you so much for the ability of turning brakes off. Finally I can use the Zwift plays again!


there’s no stopping you now


Zwift games epic…yes yes.

About time we got some new long routes


Pretty sure i noticed this in a race the other day as the smudge is still visible when a rider uses a ghost power up.

Android, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV users please note game version 1.63 phased rolllout has begun.

Once again no update for me

Updates are phased. Usually takes 2-3 days to get to everyone.


any schedule on when the new routes will be made available for meetups?

and for organisers as well please. i know we can request new routes via events team but through the self managed web portal would be much easier

Hi everyone - please update to game version 1.63 at your earliest convenience.

@Chris_K9 and @Gordon_Rhino-Racing
We’ll make thorse routes available to Event Orgainzers, Meetups, and Clubs later today. We wait until the game version is available to everyone on all OS platforms before we flip that switch.

The Zwift Games routes and Tour de Zwift 2024 Rebel Routes are now available @Chris_K9 and @Gordon_Rhino-Racing.
