We're still working on effects for the mechanical damage + bits but it should be in a presentable state soon.

Paintwork customization will allow the player to choose from a number of liveries and change the colors themselves, multiplayer is of course supported.
Sounds promising.Like the hint of model aswell. Anyone for guess the cars?

Well these are my guesses for three of them:

3. is the Volvo (240 if I remember right?) that was teased here http://www.wreckfestgame.com/game-music-contest-for-wreckfest/
5. is likely Datsun 240Z
7. I think is the Saab 96 that was in the Kickstarter video http://www.igcd.net/images/059/128.jpg

Number 3 looks like the already revealed Volvo 240 Estate;
Number 4 could be a Plymouth, maybe;
I see hints of a Volkswagen SP2 in number 5;
Number 6 looks like that atrocious 80's Dodge Challenger;
Number 7 reminds me of those 50's Jags that race at the Goodwood Revival but I'm almost sure it's not that.

Well there should be VR mode in such a new game.  :o

If not please implement "mouse look (use the mouse to look around)" so we can use that for VorpX head tracking. Thanks.   :D

As always:
new cars, final tracks... could all be made by modders.

Number 1 is a G-body. Number 3 is a Volvo 240 Estate, number 5 is a Nissan 240Z, and number 7 is the Saab-Escort hybrid we saw a long time ago I think.

Looking great! Can't wait to play it! WF is deffinetly on my first place when it comes to upcoming games in early 2018  :P
I'm so glad to see "improved clutch" on the list of the features it was just so anoying sometimes when cornering and my gear is still in fifth gear even if I'm going less then 30 km/h
Also seeing all those well made, detailed environmental assets and more polished tracks... I'm kind of curious if the performance will stay the same or can we expect less fps? (I can get like 40-50 fps right now on medium).

Also word on car suggestions:

5 looks very like datsun  ;)

Sorry if this has been said before, but have you decided if there will be a used parts section in the game (the classifieds)? One of our backer rewards was to have our name in the classifieds, so I hope this wasn't cut.

I have been wondering about the Backer Car, there hasn't been any mention of it for quite a while from BugBear. Probably not in Beta but what is the status of the car? Can we vote for the car or will BugBear decide for us?

I always thought we would not see the backer car no sooner than when Wreckfest reach beta stage.

So we still have a bit of wait and it possible we may have to wait until final version release before we see the backer car.

We do have a thread discussing what we might think the backer car will be:

What do YOU want the backer car to be?
