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 snow.
All that ice and snow is, of course, the perfect recipe for a few collisions, which is ideal for a game like Wreckfest where crashing is, y’know, kinda the point. There’s a teensy-tiny trailer above that gives you a tease of what’s in store.
Not only a great game but a great soundtrack too! refreshing.
No new trophies I take it?
Still angry that PS5 owners got it for free with PS+ and PS4 owners didn't, even though it plays flippin' fantastic on the old girl.
@get2sammyb when will devs learn that trophies will get people coming back to your game?
I was a huge fan of Destruction Derby 1 and 2 on the PS1. I actually ended up backing Wreckfest when it was in crowd funding mode. Very happy I did. Great game. Brings back the fun of mechanical carnage that has been missing for most of the PS4 gen.
Fantastic game, the only bad thing is the loading times… not for the guys on ps5 of course. But I’m holding out for a slim version
Trophies in paid DLC = bad
Trophies in free DLC = good
Still haven't gotten around to my Plus version of Wreckfest, but I definitely will this year.
Very fun game. I played the giant snowball race last year and loved it.
I wish they would add more tracks that were created by the community (Farm Lands) and also weather effects so we can race in snow anytime we want.
@sanderson72 it was free on ps5 ? dang , i must’ve missed it because it ain’t free anymore
@gomersoul Can't say I've noticed particularly long load times - takes a tad longer than I'd like but not too bad on an SSD Pro.
@nomither6 Yes, it was in the days when the PS5 got a 3rd game and we PS4 peasants only got 2 still despite paying the same PS+ sub fee. That said, Sony seem to have balanced the games up for PS4 and PS5 - unless they've just run out of PS5 games now.
@Uncharted2007 That's exactly the reason I gave it a go! It's a fun and easy game to drop in and out of, and I would have willingly paid actual money for it if I'd have heard of it before it was announced as a PS Plus game...
