After a delay, Wreckfest has slammed onto the Nintendo Switch. With native releases on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S as well as PS4 and Xbox One, BugBear’s smashing Destruction Derby-inspired racer is now available on every major console. It’s even out on Google Stadia.
With the new Switch release, you can enjoy Wreckfest’s destruction-filled racing on the go wherever you are.
Wreckfest Nintendo Switch launch trailer
To celebrate the release, developer BugBear Entertainment has released a Wreckfest Nintendo Switch launch trailer. From the trailer, Wreckfest looks like a solid port of the original, despite its complex physics engine and soft-body damage modelling.
Surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch version looks like it copes with the on-screen carnage remarkably well, running at a stable 30fps according to BugBear. It’s a testament to the team’s optimisation work, especially compared to the subpar WRC 10 Switch port.
All content from the PC and console versions carries over to the Switch port. Wreckfest lets you smash up a variety of MOT-failing rust buckets, from coupes and estate cars to sofas and school buses. There’s also a wealth of customisation options to personalise your car or add reinforced bumpers, roll cages, and side protectors so it can take more damage.
BugBear has done a great job updating Wreckfest with new content since it launched, and this content is also available in the Switch version.
Two season packages are available for the Switch version adding new cars and customisation options. Available for £11.99/$14.99/€14.99, the Season 1 package includes 20 vehicles, 20 roof decorations, and a car customisation pack with new armour, rims, and more.
The Season 2 package costs £9.99/$12.99/€12.99 and includes 12 extra cars.
