Everyone likes racing a motorhome, don't they?
Actually that statement might sound like I'm being facetious, but when it comes to racing in a no holes barred destruction derby type of environment, then the ability to strap oneself into the driving seat of a normally genteel type of vehicle and race around trying to knock your rivals into oblivion is actually a really, really exciting prospect.
Never ones to miss an opportunity to entertain and delight in equal measure, it looks like Bugbear Entertainment and Nordic Games have taken up the challenge and decided to bring motorhome racing to the title in the very near future - adding what has the promise to be an exceptionally good fun new element of racing into what is for me one of the most underrated racing games currently available to purchase today.
According to the recent blog posting from Bugbear, these new machines should be quite the spectacle once on track and receiving contact, which could make for some interesting games of last man standing...
As you can see, our version of the titular recreational vehicle stays true to the spirit of Wreckfest, featuring a body that shows its age and a wicked, demolition derby inspired paint job. Not only that, but we also really went to town with the body damage, and as a result you will see individual body panels of the camper section getting mangled and ripped off in collisions, getting opened up like a sardine can – pretty awesome!
Also confirmed by Bugbear, the motorhome content will feature as part of the vanilla line-up of vehicles in the long awaited console version of the game, and PC players will also get access to these machines as a free update once they are made publicly available.
Wreckfest is available for PC now, with console release to follow later this year.
