Game: Wreckfest

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Bugbear Entertainment, THQ Nordic

Release Date: 27/08/2019 (PS4 & XONE)

Last June saw the release of the PC version of the demolition-derby style racer Wreckfest after almost five years in an early access state. Today is the turn of console gamers as the racer is now available across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, yay.

We’ve waited many years for this moment just as you have so we’re delighted that the title is finally available on the consoles – just in time too as the next generation of consoles will be coming next year!

To support the release of the destruction-based racer, a new trailer has been released and its a pretty good one, take a look at it below.

To coincide with the console release, the PC version will also receive a massive free update today, bringing the game in line with the console version. Furthermore, the new Season Pass is also available on PC for $ 18.39 | € 18.39 | £ 14.71 (The discount is valid until September 10th).
