New Hotfix Out!

Howdy everyone,

We've just pushed out another hotfix, addressing a number of issues and improving some aspects of the game:
  • The game now detects more than 4 controllers for real, no joke.
  • Car stats are now displayed correctly in the Garage, Tuning menu.
  • Imperial units are now displayed correctly in the Garage, Upgrades menu.
  • Track length and/or area is now displayed correctly when using imperial units.
  • Bandit parts given as rewards now use the correct car name.
  • RoadSlayer now correctly starts as a Class B car as designed.
  • Hotshot is now correctly categorized as a Fullsize car.
  • Boomer and Boomer RS Roll Cage 4 is now correctly named Roof Bar.
  • A number of cars no longer have duplicate None or Stock parts.
  • Gremlin no longer has the back exhaust installed after installing the side pipe.
  • Bandit armor upgrades now have correct weight.
  • Lap count (and elimination interval) is now displayed correctly in the Pre-Race screen.
  • Tarmac 2 event in Career series Getting Smashed no longer has 12 laps, but three.
  • Supervan Smash-Up bonus target requirement is now 500 instead of 800 damage.
  • Last vehicles on the starting grid no longer occasionally spawn in an incorrect location.
  • Checkpoints can no longer be skipped when on alternative route.
  • Harvester no longer gets stuck under the bridges in Motor City.
  • For clarity, similar controllers are now numbered in the Settings, Advanced.
  • Various fixes and improvements of environment art.
  • Various minor user-interface improvements.
  • MP: The server or the client no longer crashes occasionally when a client (or a bot) quits.
  • MP: It's now displayed in the server browser whether special vehicles are allowed or disallowed on the server.
  • MP: Custom (mod) vehicles now work correctly in multiplayer.
  • MP: Vehicle and vehicle class restrictions now work correctly for custom vehicles.
  • MP: Server frequency is now correctly shown in the dedicated server console.
  • MP: It's now possible to override server settings from the command line with the "-server_set" switch, using for example "Wreckfest.exe -s server_config=server_config.cfg -server_set server_name=myserver max_players=12 password=secret" to launch the server. Be aware that spaces are not supported so make sure not use them for example in the server name.
  • MP: It's now possible to specify SteamIDs of users that will be automatically granted admin privileges in the server config.
  • MP: A separate, smaller (less than 3GB) server build is now available in a public "Server" branch. It will also soon appear in the Tool library and can be downloaded anonymously.
That's all for now, folks – we have more exciting stuff lined up so expect to hear from us again soon. In the meantime, have an awesome Midsummer holiday if you celebrate that like we here in Northern Europe do, and if you don't, have an equally awesome weekend!

Hotfix + Deluxe Edition Goodies!

Howdy Wreckers,

We hope you're doing great and you've been enjoying the game! Yesterday's launch pretty much blew our socks off – the feedback was enthusiastic and it was totally great for us to see how much fun you were having with the game. Thanks to everyone who joined the party here on the Steam forum, our own forum, Twitter and Discord and of course played the game, we had a blast!

That said, a couple of nagging issues has been brought to our attention since the yesterday's launch, and since we couldn't resist picking up our debuggers once more here we go already with a hotfix containing following improvements:
  • Added two new songs to the soundtrack.
  • The game now detects more than 4 controllers correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where the game might have crashed when entering market.
  • Fixed an issue where the menu buttons would get stacked together.
  • Fixed an issue with the huge ad board not collapsing properly.
  • The game no longer crashes when installing a fully cut fender on Rammer RS or Killerbee S with a front spoiler installed.
  • Bandit no longer has duplicate front fenders available.
  • Reward vehicles are now received correctly in career.
  • Reduced point requirement for unlocking events in the National Amateurs career championship.
  • Sandpit 1 Alternative Loop now has correct minimap.
  • Launcher now displays the correct game logo screen.
  • Updated launcher image and game shortcut icon.
  • AI names can be modded again.
Other than that, we have great news for the owners of the Deluxe Edition – the exclusive soundtrack and the wallpapers are now available, meaning that you can still feel like a real wrecker while you fill in your tax report, sort out your personal budget or whatever it is that you prefer to indulge yourself with in your free time. The bonus content should be downloaded automatically and placed into your game's installation folder, which you can open if you right-click the game's name in the Steam Library and then choose "Properties" menu item, then "Local Files" tab and finally "Browse Local Files..." button. Enjoy!

And let's not forget our pre-order backers, without whom we might not be here today. We apologize for the delay in sending out the keys but all our pre-order customers will start receiving their Deluxe Edition Upgrade and Team Bugbear Paint Job product keys shortly so no one is left behind! If you pre-ordered Full-Time Wrecker or higher and you're not receiving the email notification, please contact our support at support@bugbeargames.com and we'll check out what's the hold-up.

That pretty much wraps it up for now, see you on the track!

About This Game

Break the rules and take full-contact racing to the limit with Wreckfest!

Expect epic crashes, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line and brand-new ways for metal to bend – These are the once-in-a-lifetime moments that can only be achieved in Wreckfest, with its true-to-life physics simulation crafted by legendary developer Bugbear, who also brought you FlatOut 1 & 2!

Burn rubber and shred metal in the ultimate driving playground!

Wreckfest is jam-packed with upgrade and customization options. Whether you are preparing for your next demolition derby with reinforced bumpers, roll cages, side protectors and much more, or setting your car up for a banger race with engine performance parts like air filters, camshafts, fuel systems, etc., Wreckfest is shaping up to be the best combative motorsport game out there.

Drive hard. Die last.

Unique Racing Experience

Exhilarating no-rules racing action with defining, once-in-a-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with a true-to-life physics simulation. Witness insane neck-to-neck fighting on high-speed circuits, face total destruction madness on crazy courses with intersections and oncoming traffic, or go for demolition dominance in derby arenas.

Awesome Cars

Our cars are old, banged up, patched together... They ooze style and character! From old American heavy-hitters to agile Europeans and fun Asians, you won’t find anything like this in other games.

Meaningful Customization

Change not only the look of your cars but also upgrade their body armor – Reinforce them with heavy iron that protects you from damage, but also adds weight, which impacts the cars handling. Modify your car to make a robust tank or a fragile but lightning-fast rocket, or anything in between!


Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance!

Challenge modes

Have hilarious fun with lawn mowers and upon release also with crop harvesters, school buses, three-wheelers and more!

Career mode

Battle for championships, earn experience, unlock new upgrades and cars, and become the all-time Wreckfest champion!

Mod support

Want to go completely nuts? Have a look at the Steam Workshop where you'll find a huge selection of mods that add monster trucks, tracks with moon-high jumps or even classic maps from famous destruction-themed games!
