Well, 2017 is their plan. They are about to release Stuntfest, an expansion for PC, that will be included with the full retail release on both PC and consoles. Considering its about 9 months from planned release, i dont see why this is an unrealistic expectation.

... They are releasing an expansion to a game that isn't finished and does not have any content yet?

 

Are you serious?

 

Never finish the game, keep adding small props, one vehicle and one track each 6 months add something completely useless and unconnected to the game, called it Stuntfest, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT. Wish I could get my money back.

That's what you get when you invest in the preview of a game. You never really know how long it's gonna be before it's actually finished and what content is gonna come between.

Aye it's why I'm having trouble buying Star Citizen as that looks like a game that's also never going to be finished.

Yeah, progress is very slow but this game is starting to look really good and also has a lot more content these days.

Well, it has been 1,5 year since that last post, but there seems to be bit of progress here in there. A functioning Career Mode is a good thing to have.

Yeah for many years this was a lost cause. Progress is starting to be made though. I kinda wish they never changed engine half way through development, i remember the old version was playable and good enough for me to ignore serious frame rate drops. This game could have been finished 2 years ago i swear.

I really enjoyed it when it came out. There was only about 3 or 4 cars back then and 2 maps. I liked that it was basically a successor to Destruction Derby. I really loved those games. The vehicle physics and handling is what draws me in. I love driving games but not racing games. I always prefer long slides, jumps and bouncy suspension to nailed down boring track racing with no movement to the car whatsoever.

 

It is a shame some early access titles really just cant get off the ground.

Completely forgot about this. Still interested in it if it ever gets released.

 

Destruction/smash-em-up style racing games are the only racing games I still play really. Sucks that the team abandoned the FlatOut series, but at least FlatOut 4 was pretty damn fun and a step back in the right direction. Ultimate Carnage is still the best by far though

The game is oficially called "Wreckfest" since January. And yeah, since THQ Nordic arrived as a publisher the fellas of Bugbear finally started to work seriously on this. The AI is now harder to beat and way more aggressive than in the early stages. But IMO it still does not feel like a complete product.

Shame about the name change too, i know it happened years ago and people have probably already said the same thing but Next Car Games such a better, less generic name.

 

EDIT: I have a bad feeling that their early 2018 release date announcements not gonna happen, i mean we're almost starting the begginning of mid 2018, ffs i want this for PS4 already.

I just bought this on PS4 it's the most fun, I've had in years since Test Drive : Eve of Destruction back on PS2

This game has such a great selection of different car models and handling really good.The physics and damage is really awesome!

I just won Killer Bee S 😎

I just unlocked Pro the tracks are really fun, there's one track I felt like I should of been driving a rally car, so many bumps and jumps then a track with a huge loop felt like I driving on hot wheels track, no race ends or begins the same it's such a roller coaster.At one point I have a lot a money next point I need to upgrade my car to compete in the next race I really like the Heats with many races in a row and more laps than 3 is so much better.I kinda feel like I should maybe tweet the Dev team for this amazing game for the longest time I missed the crazyness of Motorstorm and this game lets me get that similar experience.

I showed my wife some replays then next thing I know she want's to play so cool.

Sorry for all the run on sentences I have A.D.D attention deficit disorder my mind runs a million miles a minutes and makes thinking difficult. I'm 44 my B-day was on August 20th I been gaming since I was 4

I just wanted to let others know how much fun Wreckfest is I could play all day.

I find myself giggling and laughing instead of cursing puts a smile on my face that I just can't get rid of it's great.😅

I just bought Speedbird the last car it's the most expensive 26500 cr I'm so excited to drive it :)

I'm thinking of getting this on PS4 as I got Destruction Derby 2 when I got my Playstation in 1999.

I didn't even know this game existed. Now I need to buy it, hopefully I can find a CD copy somewhere.

I play this using my g27 on standard force feedback setting I come out of each race sweating and my arms ache.

Yeah I'm now playing this on PS4. Top notch game. Like a mix of Flatout, Destruction Derby and Motorstorm. Probably my favourite racing game ever. Not sure if it was worth the 2 - 3 year wait but if you come at this game fresh not having waited that long it's a gem.

Silly question, but can you define which buttons are throttle and break?

Not sure what you mean, but assuming you're asking what buttons control what:

PS4 throttle may be r2, x or up on the right analog stick. Brakes may be l2, square or down right analog stick.

PC throttle would be up arrow or w. Brakes would be down arrow or s. 

I don't know what x box controls are as I've never used one. 

 

I have yet to play this game so I'm just going by the controls of other racing games I've played over the years.

Yes It's not just me that feel the same vibes from Motorstorm especially Motorstorm: Pacific Rift.

Am I the only one that played Test Drive : Eve Of Destruction on PS2 It's really a shame I bought it used because my disc is scratched and I can't complete the game but it was a blast for the time that I could play.

Thanks to Wreckfest I get that amazing feeling back Big thanks to Big Bear and everyone else involved Thanks very much:)

Nope. I loved that game. I always drove the Gremlin lookalike. The demolition derby modes were tons of fun and even the school bus races were fun. Too bad the Test Drive series died down.

I really like this game. I also like the fact that the version that includes that season pass thing costs $60 rather than $80-$120 as I've seen in the past. 

Wreckfest feels like a much better Flat Out successor than Total Insanity did, despite the latter carrying the "Flat Out" name. I guess it has to do with the developer though. Either way this game was a pleasant surprise, one i didn't know existed until this past Tuesday. And the best part? No forced online crap.

I think we can all agree the games great but damn how bad is the music? Cringiest soundtrack I've heard in years, menu music isn't too bad but jeesh, me and all my friends had to turn the music off, even my friends i thought would be into it. I think they wanted heavy music to match the mood but seriously, awful.

I think there's literally five music tracks or something... luckily it can be turned off and can put something else on via spotify on ps4.

 

I'm seriously loving this game though, don't think I'll be going back to GTA racing now!

I can with utmost certainty say that this is the first game in several years that I thoroughly enjoy. I can play death match derby all day long. Oval tracks are excellent for setting up some wrecks for your opponents. Oh yeah, the cars actually deform when they crash which makes watching the wrecks all the more enjoyable.
