HIGHLIGHTS
  • New tournament: Carmageddon
  • New free Carmageddon tracks
  • New Eagle-R reward car
We're excited to announce a new tournament, and it's a very special treat!

If there's one game that perfectly blended racing and destruction, not to mention a wicked sense of dark humour, that's the original Carmageddon and its numerous successors. When we got a surprise chance to inject some of the Carmageddon vibes in our game we didn't need to think twice about it - Carmageddon inside Wreckfest is like a marriage made in heaven! So there you have it: the new update adds two iconic environments "Bleak City" and "Devil's Canyon" from the original Carmageddon, the infamous Eagle-R car and a healthy number of zombies to run over, all wrapped in the pixelated glory of the early 90s, perfect to release your inner Max Damage.

Let's start smashing some zombies!

Additionally, this release also contains a few additional improvements but we invite you to check out the release notes below for a complete summary of items fixed or improved upon. Unfortunately, the title also suffers from a few issues at the moment which we are going to address, and a list of those can be found below as well.

Welcome back. Hoping the memory leak for dedicated servers can be fixed soon.
A server admin also cannot restrict cars on a server at the moment, it's bugged.
The new car looks good!

Can you guys please fix the leaderboards on Xbox? Most of the DLC track leaderboards don’t work. I feel like every update y’all ignore this issue and racers like myself who try to get WR lap times can’t compete on these tracks cause we don’t know who has the fastest lap.
 
Like Kiryu from Yakuza 0 says:

"THAT'S RAD!"

Thank you so much for the new content Bugbear, this is always amazing to see and I cannot wait for what's next.

Great to see the Eagle in WF but I find it abit puzzling that it cost 100k fame points and is hidden behind special vehicles.
You can't add Armour to it which would of fitted in with the Carmageddon theme

Can BB please fix the updating issue with the next gen upgrade, its seriously annoying having to redownload 24GB after every update!

Its fine for me because my internet is decent but for someone else who has limited bandwidth its probably really frustrating.

Anyone else have the same?

Needs a hot fix ASAP! Tournaments broken..again. There are no A Class lobbies up, and I don’t have the ability to even make a lobby right now.

Also a bit confused as to why the eagle is grouped in with school buses, Rigs and freaking lawn mowers? I drove the eagle earlier and it was pretty damn competitive with some of the other “normal” cars. If I’m joining a special vehicle lobby I’m getting in my bus and smashing, not driving something that’s more suited for racing… I mean it doesn’t even have armor!

Looking at the "Known issues" list and the additional problems people report I can't help but think:
Bugbear, relax. Take it down a notch. There's no need to pump out this much content, especially during summer. Just take your time, check the bugs and glitches, do some playtesting, small steps. Content patches show people you are dedicated and hard-working, but so do bugfix patches and quality patches.

Have to say I not that familiar with the Carmageddon look or game and although it's a blast from the past so to speak, Retro type look in the Tracks...personal opinion is that it does not really fit the look and feel of the rest of the tracks in the game, looks like a cheap add on / WIP.
If the Tracks were updated to the graphics level of the other tracks in the game maybe...again just my personal opinion.

Like the 'EagleR' and look forward to adding some 'Armor' / Tire Changes in the future possibly.

"looks like a cheap add on / WIP "

Since THQ owns the rights to Carmageddon now ( Stainless is no more ), I'm thinking Bugbear just ported over the 1997 Carmageddon tracks and did some tweaking to get them to load in Wreckfest.

I like the look of the Eagle r too :)
