Wreckfest Hits Consoles in August

Get ready to wreck as publisher THQ grinds our gears one more time on Consoles. Wreckfest is bringing automotive mayhem to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on 27 August.

Developed by Bugbear Entertainment, Wreckfest is a different type of derby. The very same team took their experience on games like FlatOut, Ridge Racer, and Sega Rally finally coming to a collision with the ideas behind Wreckfest. While games like Rollcage focus on high-speed combat cars, the chassis on display are a little more rustic. This particular demolition derby got off the grid back in June 2018 with a PC release. Now the carnage is coming to almost all racers.

Featuring a range of different running wrecks and a variety of game modes, Wreckfest isn’t just the spiritual successor to the FlatOut franchise but it brings something new to the table. A soft body damage system allows realistic damage and that affects the way that a car handles in real time.
