Bugbear Entertainment have released the results from the recent Next Car Game Wreckfest survey, with some interesting responses... Back in early December Bugbear launched a fan survey for their current PC and soon to be console destruction derby style racing game Wreckfest, asking fans what they would consider key development priorities should be as the team ramp up work as the game pushed towards a version one release. Wreckfest has in my opinion considerable potential to become a bit of a classic title, with just the right amount of realism and fun factor to allow the game appeal to both arcade players and simulation drivers alike. With good graphics, entertaining physics and the thrill of a big race accident, Wreckfest by all rights should really be scaling the heights of the racing game charts by now, especially considering it has been out in one form or another since back in 2014. Unfortunately for various reasons development has been slow to pick up pace in the last few years, and to help the team decide where best to focus resources Bugbear released a fan survey, asking the gamers exactly what they wanted the priorities to be over the remainder of the year. Thousands of people responded, many of who frequent the forums here at RaceDepartment, and now Bugbear have presented us with the results. You can check out the full list of survey results HERE. Unsurprisingly it looks like Wreckfest fans are keen to see a structured career mode within the game, with 2040 votes (68.3% of respondents) cast in favour of this option when responding to the "Of the following features, we should prioritize" question. This figure is backed up by the surprisingly large 66% majority voting for a preference to single player offline racing and 47.9% claiming a lack of career progression is preventing them from playing the title more often. One of the most surprising results for me can be found in the question asking for a most favoured peripheral choice in game, with wheel users languishing behind their controller playing counterparts 26.6% to 51.3% in favour of a controller. Even keyboard players receive some love in the results, with 21.1% of 2985 responses admitting to using a keyboard as the preferred method of control in game. All in all it is refreshing to see a modern game developer engaging in the community and taking on feedback when planning further development with a game. I hope this is the beginning of a big push by Bugbear to bring the title up to scratch and make the most of the obvious potential just sitting there waiting to be realised. Next Car Game Wreckfest is available for Windows PC right now. A proposed console release is due sometime during 2017.
