Wreckfest

Recommended Posts

Squirrel

It’s finally happening and there’s a fixed release date for consoles!

It is coming on the 27th of August for the reasonable price of £35, there is a deluxe version too but not sure what comes with that.

Ive being playing this a lot on the PC and so has @doubleg213, if the console version feels and looks as good as the PC version then this could be a fantastic game for multiplayer action. 

No more problems with poor driving standards, if you car is undamaged at the end you’re doing it wrong!

Its not actually just all about destruction though, you can have serious racing on Wreckfest. Cars don’t flip and spin off like they’re made out of rubber like they do in some games. There is potential for serious racing where a bit contact is acceptable. Cars can grind against each other, you can accidentally tap someones backend lightly without sending them into outer space. You actually have to put some effort into spinning a car out or forcing them off track into the very destructible scenery. 

I don’t know the full details of what has been ported over from the PC to the console version. I’ll be keeping a very close eye for any pre release footage and I’ll be sharing it here first!

Like is said, will probably roll in as a Christmas present as opposed to buying on launch...

Unless you guys all post vids really enjoying it then I may be persuaded.

Based on the delays with it coming out and what not I stuck with the standard version for pre-order. If the thing is like it is on PC and they definitely deliver on the DLC I shall review the scenario at that stage.

@Road2FURY I’ve had a look to see what the deluxe edition contains and it’s basically a season pass for the planned 8 DLC packs.

Ive also seen this version available for £42.99 which is considerably cheaper than the advertised RRP. 

If you can find the deluxe version cheap I’d definitely recommend going for that if there’s an additional 20 cars plus extras.

I'll grab it, probably the deluxe version if I can get a good deal.

Should be a good laugh.

Hype mode is definitely activated! 

I’m really looking forward to having a bit of online contact racing without the pinball effect.

I saw a Station Wagon in that first video. That is enough for me to say I will be getting this for sure.

The car list is really good and they all behave differently. So stuff like the Escort I used in the video I posted is lighter and more nimble but gets damaged more easily and is easier for other cars to spin you out. Whereas the likes of the old Volvo etc. are much heavier and stronger.

I’m hoping they include the Reliant 3 wheeler in the base game. I have a feeling it may be DLC though. 

Its a shame mods won’t be supported though, I’ve had a lot of fun driving around my local dirt oval.

I'll likely get this, seems like a good time bashing into @Dodge in yet another game.

From what I've read the PC version is to be updated with some additions when the console version is released. So it is possible that the console version will give us what we already have plus a couple of new things.

Then the DLC will go from there, because of all the release delays I'm inclined to hang fire on the DLC side until I actually see something appear.

I know they’re bringing some of the most popular modded tracks into the game. 

The delay has been a good thing, it needed a new publisher and time to take it from being an indie title into a more developed game. 

I really want to see actual gameplay from the console version. The rendered videos look good but being rendered doesn’t tell you how good the actual gameplay is.

Screenshots of all the tracks that come with the game. 

I don’t know if all of these are coming across to the console version yet. 

They are also making some of the most popular user made tracks part of the base game too. Not sure if they will be included either on the PS4.
