Break the rules and take full-contact racing to the limit with Wreckfest, a high octane racing game by developer Bugbear Studios!.

Race through difficult tracks against other aggressive drivers in this unique destruction-derby-styled game. A spiritual successor to BugBear's FlatOut series, watch real-life physics play out in all of its bone-crunching details. There are no rules in this racing game, so witness insane high-speed crashes, tons of bumps and crashes, and more both online and off! 

Customize your cars with gear to keep you safe and on the road, and go head to head with players online, either to compete in numerous challenges or fighting it out against each other on the track.

Wreckfest was originally released for the PC in 2018 but is also getting a console re-release for the PlayStation 5 on June 1st, 2021, with an Xbox Series S and X version coming soon. It is also available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Developer Quote

Unique Racing Experience
Exhilarating no-rules racing action with defining, once-in-a-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with a true-to-life physics simulation. Witness insane neck-to-neck fighting on high-speed circuits, face total destruction madness on crazy courses with intersections and oncoming traffic, or go for demolition dominance in derby arenas.

Awesome Cars
Our cars are old, banged up, patched together... They ooze style and character! 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 – Reinforce them with heavy iron that protects you from damage, but also adds weight, which impacts the cars handling. Modify your car to make a robust tank or a fragile but lightning-fast rocket, or anything in between!

Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance!

Challenge modes
Have hilarious fun with lawnmowers and upon release also with crop harvesters, school buses, three-wheelers, and more!

Career mode
Battle for championships, earn experience, unlock new upgrades and cars, and become the all-time Wreckfest champion!

Mod support
Want to go completely nuts? Have a look at the Steam Workshop where you'll find a huge selection of mods that add monster trucks, tracks with moon-high jumps or even classic maps from famous destruction-themed games!
