Wreckfest Previous announcements of Game Release
If you have somehow managed not to know anything about the racing video game, let’s first of all, bring you along. The game which has been seen as the FlatOut series’ spiritual successor has cut between some of the most favorite racing games including FlatOut, Destruction Derby, and Street Rod.
So why is Wrekfest as great as it is? Because it is a festival of wreckage-racing to the extreme. In the game, there are no rules so if one wants to demolish the car of his opponent on the track, you have all the freedom to do that. In addition to that, because of its excellent physics, watching the carnage as it happens is nothing but pure joy.
The Wreckfest PS4 and Xbox One versions have had a very long history before the announcement of the release. Following the Early Access and much later, the PC release, there have been previous announcements that the console game will be released but has been pushed back. The game was supposed to be launched in 2017 following an announcement by Bugbear Entertainment.
Next, the release date was set at November 20, 2018, but somehow it did not materialize because it had performance problem which was said to be a result of its multiplayer portion which was still in need of some polishing, and so might not be a great game to play. After a large part of Bugbear Entertainment was acquired by THQ Nordic, work continued on the console versions of the game which has now been set for August 27, a date that will surely be kept.
Since the release of the game, it has received very favorable reviews from both gamers and critics, and since it is the same game, a better version that is coming on consoles, there is no reason why it shouldn’t make a great gameplay.
