Three Fields Entertainment are accountable for many video games with “harmful” of their title: Dangerous Driving, Danger Zone, and Dangerous Golf. But now they have a brand new racing sport within the works which eschews their earlier naming conference for one thing that’ll make you say with a wry smile and a shake of the top, “I see what you probably did there”. It’s known as Wreckreation (, like ‘recreation’, not Wreck-reaction, or Wreck–eation) and its reveal trailer appears to be like a bit like if Burnout and Hot Wheels went for a joyride collectively.
Not an enormous shock, actually, contemplating Three Fields are largely comprised of former Burnout and Need For Speed devs, however Wreckreation undoubtedly has the stylings of Criterion’s traditional racer. You’ve obtained muscle vehicles zooming round crashing into one another, then doing the entire slow-mo “Takedown” of yore, the place you see the automobile clatter off beam for a quick second or two. The racing? Yeah, it appears to be like as anticipated, ditching realism for tight cornering and explosive arcade-style velocity.
And then you definitely’ve obtained the world – 400 sq. kilometres of freeform sandbox racing – which is how the sport makes an attempt to distinguish itself from the competitors. You’ll oversee your individual MixWorld, a giant map that you simply’re in a position to jazz up with loops, jumps, and different obstacles like windmills and *checks notes* geese the dimensions of a gasoline station. And it appears to be like such as you’re free to plonk them anyplace, both creating elaborate Scalextric units within the sky or offroad impediment programs.
Judging by the temporary trailer and tidbits of information on the sport, it appears to be like enjoyable! It has a lot of customisation choices from paint colors, glass colors and engine sounds, and it additionally has its personal FM radio dial with 16 totally different channels to select from (or your individual Spotify Premium playlists for those who favor). The promise of blasting by participant created programs additionally has me cautiously excited. I simply have to see extra, actually, and whether or not constructing utilizing its free digicam view is straightforward and intuitive. Whether you are in a position to peruse different folks’s stuff with out it being a faff, or share my creations with others in a jiffy. If it will get these types of technicalities proper, then I reckon we’ll be in for a deal with.
There’s presently no launch date for Wreckreation, however you possibly can sustain with it over on Steam.
