Bugbear Entertainment’s Next Car Game: Wreckfest will be making its way onto console and will be released in 2017 on PS4 and Xbox One, the developer has announced.
Anyone who pre-orders a copy of the console version before the game’s release will be given access to an early version of the game via the game’s beta on PS4 or through Microsoft’s Game Preview program on Xbox One. Bugbear Entertainment are aiming to fully release Wreckfest in spring 2017, at which point the game should also leave Early Access on PC.
There are three pre-order tiers on offer, all of which grant access to the game’s beta on console as well as the full game, although the higher tiers also grant extra goodies such as including a copy of the game on PC, exclusive cars, and even having your name featured in-game.
Anyone who opts for the Team Bugbear Member tier, currently available at a reduced price of $69.99, will also receive a copy of Bugbear’s new game, Stuntfest, which the developer has also just announced, although this will only be redeemable on PC.
Check out what each tier offers below:
Wreckfest, which is currently only available on PC via Steam’s Early Access program, is a demolition derby themed racing game with realistic soft-body damage modelling, sophisticated driving dynamics, and in-depth vehicle upgrading, featuring both demolition derbies and more traditional track races.
“Since the Early Access launch of Wreckfest we have been asked whether Wreckfest will be ever released on consoles, and we’re now thrilled to announce that Wreckfest is officially coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4!” Bugbear stated on their website.
Studio Director, Janne Alanenpää, added “Thanks to the raw power of both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 we will be able to unleash our undistilled vision of a next-generation demolition racing game on consoles as well and expand our audience considerably.”
