Official Press Release
Carmageddon: Reincarnation launches on PC as Steam Early Access title
Thursday, 13th March 2014. Stainless Games Ltd., Newport, Isle of Wight, UK. Carmageddon: Reincarnation for PC is today released as an Early Access title via the Steam client.
“Carmageddon: Reincarnation Early Access is your chance to experience the development of the game as it progresses from pre-alpha towards completion." said Neil “nobby” Barnden, Stainless co-founder and Carmageddon Brand Director. "By choosing Early Access not only are you getting the game NOW and at a significant discount, you'll get to follow the development and help us tune and improve the game to be the best it can be.” he continued, “We’ve been having an absolute blast smashing the sh*t out of stuff for the last fortnight while our Kickstarter Backers had their exclusive peek at the game, and now it’s time for everyone else to share in the simple joy of granny splattering and penguin evisceration.”
The Early Access release features three levels that the player can explore, each varied in size and character, at a different stage of development, and all demonstrating the potential of the game’s sandbox gameplay and anarchic humour. There are six varied cars to choose from, a wide range of peds to hunt down, and a plethora of mad PowerUps to play with. Regular updates will see the range of levels, vehicles and juicy STUFF expand, and more game modes implemented. Multiplayer will follow in a major future update.
The game is currently at the pre-alpha stage, and buyers can therefore take advantage of the Early Access pricing before the game gets to its “final release” stage later in the year, at which point the price will rise. Players who buy the Early Access game will get all hotfixes and updates, right up to and including the final release. So there’s a real incentive to get strapped in at this stage and enjoy the ride to completion, but at a discount!
The launch coincides with the release of a new promotional video for the game, called “The Wheels on the Bus”.
Carmageddon: Reincarnation is described as, “The perfect way to unwind after a killing spree.” by Patrick Buckland, Stainless Games CEO.

As some of you might be aware, the new Carmageddon has been announced and it will be created by the original creators of Carmageddon 1 and 2, Stainless! 1 And 2 were the non-crappy ones, in case you forget!
The Carmageddon community is growing as we speak with old as well as new adolescents who want to splatter organs over the pavement and crush cars against walls (and alright, we also got some bald, drunk, fat guys who still enjoy this type of thing). The Official Website is up. Including a Developer's Blog.
I'm sure looking forward to it, Carmageddon 2 is still one of my favorite games and because of Carmageddon I started playing GTA (or was it the other way around). With a 10 year difference between the last Carmageddon I expect to see some awesome physics, crazy powerups and plenty of blood and gore like in Carma 1. Especially due to people getting used to extremely violent games, I'm wondering how far Stainless can push it.
For the people who don't know what Carmageddon is, here's a trip through memory lane, which features Carmageddon 1 and Carmageddon 2 (We do not talk about Carmageddon TDR 2000):
