Wreckfest smashing out of early access after 1611 days

Smash-happy racer Wreckfest will finally leave early access after 1611 days and launch in full this month, publishers THQ Nordic announced today. It's been a long journey for developers Bugbear Entertainment (who also created FlatOut) and the game they once called Next Car Game, from a failed crowdfunding campaign in 2013, through early access, picking up a publisher, and being delayed so many times. It's…

THQ Nordic help Wreckfest cross the finish line this year

Publishers THQ Nordic today announced their "cooperation" with developers Bugbear Entertainment, joining forces to help give the game a shove across the finish line later this year.

Crunch Brunch: Next Car Game Is Now Wreckfest

Bugbear are the modern masters of vehicular carnage, as exemplified by their efforts in the FlatOut series, which fell flat on its carface when development duties were handed to a new studio. Their latest title, currently in Early Access, has been known simply as Next Car Game, but it has a proper title now - Wreckfest. That's almost exactly how describe the sort of greasy…

Feature: Chewing the FlatOut

Impressions: Next Car Game

It's been a long time since the FlatOut series last left a good impression. When development duties moved away from Bugbear, the franchise played a game of chicken with an eighteen-wheeler and turned into an unhappy metal pancake. Now, the originators of the smashing racing spectacle are back with the thrillingly titled Next Car Game. Having pulled into the pitstop of Steam Early Access yesterday,…

Bugbear Cans Next Car Game Kickstarter, Releases Demo

FlatOut creator Bugbear's next car game, Next Car Game, crashes and burns like nobody's business - in a good way. Unfortunately, its Kickstarter crashed and burned because nobody offered it their business - in a bad way - so Bugbear's elected to pull the plug. Fear not, however, for your fantasies of mangled metal and tires soaring like majestic rubber eagles haven't gone up in…

CRASHBANGBOOM: Next Car Game’s First Gameplay Video

First thing: is FlatOut developer Bugbear's vaunted (and expertly titled) Next Car Game still drop-dead, go-careening-off-a-cliff-and-explode beautiful? Yes? OK, then, moving on. Videogame cars are weird. They've managed to be preternaturally pretty for ages - having easily ramped right over the steep walls of uncanny valley years ago - and, stranger still, they're even more aesthetically pleasing when being torn to gleaming shrapnel. Next Car…

Next Car Game Crashes Kickstarter

BugBear's Next Car Game is the spiritual successor to their FlatOut series. And by that I mean it's covered in ectoplasm and knocking on the pipes and oh no it's grabbed television's Sarah Greene! But in another sense this is the game they've always wanted to make. One which conveys everything they've learned and put into their car crashing racing games, but in a new…

Greenlit: Next Car, Eden Star, SUPERHOT, More

Valve may not have pushed another 100 titles through Steam Greenlight's mighty monetary birthing canal, but the latest batch of 25 is nothing to scoff at. Do you want Dear-Esther-influenced Mars exploration? You've got it. Car games (that are currently titled, er, Car Game)? There's plenty of that too. And survival-horror? Well of course there's survival-horror. There always is. This is Greenlight we're talking about.…

Just Watch: Next Car Game’s Incredible Physics

Bugbear, the makers of the glorious FlatOut, recently announced a crowd-funded car crashing game, intermediately titled Next Car Game. To help tempt you with those papery things in your wallet, they've released a video detailing the destruction engine that the game will have.

FlatOut Pancaked: ‘Next Car Game’ Is Stunning

Like a tyre rolling from the twisted, sad mess of a vehicle pile up, I shed a single tear at the awful state of the last FlatOut game. FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction wasn't made by the original developers, BugBear, but its existence appears to have angered them into returning to the car crashing games that they love. It doesn't have the FlatOut name, but…

Carface: FlatOut Developers Announce Next Car Game

Next Car Game may well be a working title, but that hasn't stopped Bugbear from setting up camp at nextcargame.com. The video, below, is "all in-game footage" and it looks like a rock 'em sock 'em destruction derby. Hurrah! The developers FlatOut games aren't entirely about crashing cars but it's an activity that is very much encouraged. The vehicles in Bugbear's racer aren't the delicate…
