Wreckfest just fully embraces what it is, and you have to respect it. Bugbear's brash, fender-bending racer has been unleashed on PlayStation 5 as part of May's PlayStation Plus lineup, and it's still very much the chaotic, crash-happy, Destruction Derby-esque experience people love. In the jump to new hardware, the game definitely...
It's daa-bee, not dur-bee
Republished on Wednesday 28th April, 2021: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of May 2021's PS Plus lineup. The original text follows. Racing games have been seemingly few and far between this generation. DriveClub will cease to exist at the end of this month, Codemasters’ GRID...
Destructive racer Wreckfest is showing no signs of wear and tear several years after its release, with ongoing support from developer Bugbear adding new events to the title as part of a new winter tournament. This sees the return of the snowball launcher which some of you may recall from last year, while many tracks have been given a dusting of...
Oh my car
Cult classic PS1 kill-‘em-up Carmageddon is coming to Wreckfest, and if you’ll excuse us for quoting directly from the marketing materials, it’s a “match made in hell”. The new Carmageddon Tournament event is rolling out today on PlayStation 5 and PS4, and it’ll see you “wrecking your opponents and wrecking zombies (and...
Next-gen version now compatible with last-gen save

The game doesn’t officially launch on PS5 until 1st June, but PS Plus...
The fourth of May is with you, Spock
A new month, a new selection of PlayStation Plus games. Last month's lineup is on the way out today, making space for May's roster of complimentary titles. In case you'd forgotten, the games PS Plus members will be able to download include Wreckfest for PS5, as well as PS4 titles
Plus or minus?
We think it's fair to say that PlayStation Plus has had a pretty good year so far, but is May's offering up to snuff? Next month's (or this month's, depending on when you're reading) lineup includes the PS5 version of Wreckfest, alongside Battlefield V and Stranded Deep on PS4. It's a very varied trio of games, but are you happy with...
A very varied month
May 2021's PlayStation Plus games have been revealed. As per usual, subscribers get access to one PS5 title, and two PS4 games. On PS5, we've got chaotic car-smashing sim Wreckfest. This is the PS5 version of the game, which originally released on PS4 in 2019. It's worth noting that you'll only be eligible to download the PS5...
If you're looking forward to playing Wreckfest when it hits PlayStation Plus on the 4th May, you might want to take a quick look at the game's next-gen features trailer.
