The console version of Wreckfest has almost become the stuff of legend over the years. We’ve been covering the early access PC version of the game (then known as “Next Car Game”) since it first appeared in…wait for it…2013!
Many years and updates have passed and in the middle of 2018, we learned that the PC version of the title was finally out of early access status after nearly five years. In October of the same year, the mythical PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Wreckfest release date was bestowed upon us. The holy grail of destruction racing was to release on November 20, 2018.
Of course, as this is Wreckfest we are talking about, the inevitable delay would strike just months later. Fret not my fellow banger racer, we are now just days away from the console release of Wreckfest and we’ve actually had the pleasure of playing the title across the standard PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X for your viewing pleasure.
From what we’ve played so far, the console versions handle all those soft-body deformation calculations well and they don’t skimp on the flying debris. We were also impressed with the replay options available and don’t get us started on the mixed vehicle racing…oh my!
