'Wreckfest' (ALL) Gets PS4/XOne Date, Deluxe Edition, PC Content Update - Trailer

by Rainier on July 2, 2019 @ 11:54 a.m. PDT

Wreckfest is a demolition derby-themed racing game with special attention paid to soft-body damage modeling, sophisticated driving dynamics and in-depth vehicle upgrading, featuring both demolition derbies and more traditional track races.

Have you ever hoped you could get back to the glorious days of Demolition Derby and FlatOut, climb behind the wheel of your banged-up ride and once again wreck your way to the finish line and show who’s the boss? You’re not the only one. Over the years, we’ve been asked thousands of times when are we going to get back to our roots and make another racing game that would capture the same spirit of over-the-top action and reckless racing.

Wreckfest is going to bring those unforgettable moments up-to-date, throw in the mix vehicle upgrading and spice it all up with massive online races where players can battle it out with their tricked out bangers.

Bugbear's Wreckfest is all about fun, breakneck racing and over-the-top crashes. We don’t shy away from contact, and indeed, our in-house engine is all about what happens when cars collide with each other and the world around them at reckless speeds.

It’s motorsport, but not just any motorsport. It’s motorsport with attitude.

Expect epic crashes and tight, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line on run-down racing tracks. Expect proper, big demolition derbies. Expect brand new ways for metal to bend and the defining once-in-a-lifetime moments that can only be achieved in Wreckfest, with its true-to-life physics simulation.

Delayed late last year for more polishing, Finnish game developer Bugbear Entertainment has completed the qualifying and stands on pole position for its release on August 27, 2019 to race onto PS4 and Xbox One.

"It's a great day! Bugbear Entertainment has been working hard on Wreckfest and we are happy to finally welcome the console players to the racing tracks. We've improved the PC version from 2018 tremendously, new tracks, cars, options, customizations and more - It's the best banger racing experience ever." says Janne Alanenpää, CEO and Creative Director of Bugbear Entertainment.

Wreckfest will be available in both standard and deluxe versions, while the digital deluxe edition offers a 24-hour head start into the game on August 26th 2019, both versions will include the exclusive Bandit Ripper V8 racer for everyone who chooses to preorder, digitally or retail**.

The Deluxe Edition also contains the Season Pass, which will grant access to 20 new cars, 20 special roof decorations and additional car customizations like armor, rims and more. This new content will be released step by step after the release, along with free content updates.

Do exisiting owners of Wreckfest (PC) get anything, when the console version launches? YES! On August 27 Wreckfest will receive a big free update, including:

  • 3 entirely new tracks and 1 new derby arena
  • 3 new crazy challenge vehicles
  • 1 new reward car for finishing the carreer
  • New & improved career events
  • Several new paintjobs for existing vehicles
  • Additonal daytimes for all tracks
  • ... and some more cool stuff!

Burn rubber and shred metal in the ultimate driving playground!

Key Features:

  • Awesome Cars – Old, banged-up, patched-together cars that simply ooze style! From old American heavy-hitters to agile Europeans and fun Asians, you won’t find anything like this in other games.
  • Meaningful Customization – Change not only the look of your cars but also upgrade their body armor.
  • Multiplayer – Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance!

Already available on PC, Wreckfest is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on August 27, 2019.
