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.

THQ Nordic and Bugbear Studios kicked off digital pre-orders (NA/EU) for Wreckfest on Nintendo Switch today.

Wreckfest features do not include Chris Pratt, or princesses, and does not come with turtles, but it does include lawnmowers, harvesters, school busses, and although we don’t have anyone to fix a toilet, that doesn’t mean you can’t drive one. Actually, even while you are on a toilet...

Wreckfest will feature an up-to-16-player online multiplayer mode as well as offline tournaments with steady 30 FPS.

The Nintendo Switch version offers two acquirable season packages additionally to the base game ($39.99/€39.99/£34.99):

  • Season 1 ($14.99/€14.99/£11.99) package includes 20 crazy and iconic vehicles, 20 insane roof decorations, and a car customization pack with new armor, rims, and more
  • Season 2 ($12.99/€12.99/£9.99) package grants you access to 12 additional cars

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!
