THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are…

Wreckfest has smashed out of early access

After four years of crashing, smashing, bashing, and dashing around early access, Wreckfest today finally launches in full. It's the new (well... new-ish now, I suppose) racer from FlatOut creators Bugbear, who previously called it just Next Car Game, and it certainly has pretty destruction effects. Wreckfest is crossing the finish line with an update including a new destruction derby arena, new parts and paint…

It's…

Wreckfest Goes Lawnmower Racing

All I know about sit-on lawnmowers comes from David Lynch's The Straight Story and Hank Hill. They seem sedate, pleasant things. I do not consider them high-speed deathracers. Well, I didn't, until I saw Wreckfest [official site] developers Bugbear added lawnmowers to their smashtastic racer in the latest big Early Access update, along with ragdoll physics for riders flung from their mowers in the carnage.…
