I bought into this game back when it was only a tech demo and nothing more. I've been playing it happily since and am thrilled with how the game has come around. My biggest issue however, is when I transferred the game to steam, I had the Deluxe edition which came with the backer car. Lo and behold it's not in my garage and the game doesn't show any applied dlc. Has anyone else had this issue?

I know that I bought the Full Time Wrecker edition back when it was like first announced, many things changed. It is hard to say now, I know that the edition I bought had a special car, I think? We'll see what they say.
When sparks fly, mayhem is coming...

I had the weekend smasher bought almost 5 years back, and Steam physically wouldn't let me purchase the deluxe upgrade for myself because it said I already had it. It'll be super cruddy if I can't have the backer car because I couldn't buy it

If you bought the game from the website and not from Steam, you will get the key to the car by email soon. They mentioned it in another thread.

Unless only bought the WEEKEND SMASHER bottom level support for $25.

That is an issue that some could not use Steam to upgrade to deluxe version to get backer car over the years.

Their idea of shortly is apparently quite different than mine. It's been over 8 hours since that was posted...

So what you're saying is that there's no way I could get it even if I wanted to?

Well, the game did take many many years longer to come out than originally expected, so Bugbear isn't known for being quick with these things. Also, the game launched at 8pm (Finnish time), so the Bugbear team probably all called it a night and went drinking or something, and forgot to press SEND. Which means they are all hungover now and nobody will do it today either. Or during the weekend. So I expect us to get it on Monday  :D :D

I got my email today.  :)

I got my email today from Bugbear. Got Steam key for backer car and team paint job. :)



Email:

Dear Wreckfest supporter,

We hope you're doing great and you've been enjoying the game!

We come bearing gifts – You're receiving this email because you've pre-ordered Wreckfest and opted for a product tier that makes you lucky enough to get some neat bonus content:

– If you pre-ordered Full-Time Wrecker or a higher product tier, you'll receive the Deluxe Edition Upgrade containing the coveted Bandit backer car, an epic soundtrack and a number of wicked wallpapers.

– If you pre-ordered Team Bugbear Member or higher, you will not only receive the Deluxe Edition Upgrade but also the special Team Bugbear Paint Job for Hotshot with which to impress everyone! Please note that you will need to activate both keys.

The shiny new product keys can be viewed on your personal download page here:

https://transactions.sendowl.com/orders/*****

Simply take note of the key (copy it to the clipboard) and activate it on Steam as per usual:

1. Launch Steam.
2. Click on "Games" in the top menu bar, then "Activate a Product on Steam...".
3. Click "Next", "I Agree", and input the Deluxe Edition Upgrade or Wreckfest Team Bugbear Paint Job product key to the "Product Code" field.
4. Click "Next" and you should be all done! If Steam doesn't start downloading your bonus content automatically, you will need to restart it.

After you activate the Deluxe Edition Upgrade, your backer car will be waiting for you in the garage after launching the game.

The soundtrack and wallpapers will appear in the game's installation location in folders called DLC Soundtrack and DLC Wallpapers, respectively. If you're not sure how to natigate to the game's installation folder, you can open it if you right-click the game's name in the Steam Library and then choose "Properties" menu item, then "Local Files" tab and finally "Browse Local Files..." button.

Team Bugbear Paint Job can be found in the Paint Shop menu for Hotshot.

If you need *any* assistance whatsoever please do not hesitate to contact us at support@bugbear.fi and we'll help you along.

That's about it – We hope you enjoy your exclusive bonus content. Thanks for supporting us, over and out!


Thanks,
The guys at Bugbear



May be a while before I can buy the Hotshot to checkout the team paint job.  :P

But I will definitely have the Hotshot in my garage at some point.  :D

Did you click the link which is on Purple's post, or the link which is on your email?
Purple's shared link isn't full one and that's why it doesn't work.
