Bugbear Entertainment has given Wreckfest players a chance to experience the classic Rally Trophy game experience in a Wreckfest tournament.
The undeniably smile-inducing game Wreckfest has released a very interesting update. Developer Bugbear Entertainment is celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the release of their Rally Trophy game by re-releasing it in part through a Wreckfest tournament.
Steam players will have the opportunity to use the Boomer RS car over a roughly 6-minute windy forested Russian rally stage designed to recreate what Rally Trophy was like 20 years ago. The car bears a resemblance to the 1971 Ford Escort found in Rally Trophy.
Wreckfest has become a common platform for sim racers to relax and have some laughs since its release. While it's marketed with fun in mind, the driving and damage models are impressively complex. Many high-profile charity and fun events have been held in Wreckfest, as the omnipresent possibility of T-boning a rival on track or being T-boned tends to level the playing field and shift the advantage from who has the best outright pace to who can keep their vehicle on track while laugh-crying.
The changelog notes are below, and the update is live on Steam now. Let us know what you think of the Rally Trophy inspired tournament, or any other thoughts you have about Wreckfest and Rally Trophy in the comments below.
