PlayStation Plus subscribers can download a digital copy of Wreckfest: Drive Hard, Die Last for free, starting on May 4 for the PlayStation 5.
The PlayStation 5 update is still scheduled to arrive on June 1, promising enhanced visuals, dynamic dirt on vehicles, better textures, and improved visual effects. Running a buttery smooth 4K resolution at 60FPS, players can also wreck it up online with 24 player support.
Burn rubber, break rules and shred metal in this full-contact racer from the creator of the FlatOut. Race and upgrade patched-together cars, improving their looks and toughening up their body armour to survive the epic crashes and neck-to-neck fights over the finish line in competitive races. Enjoy some hilarity in Challenge modes as you get behind the wheel of crop harvesters, three-wheelers and much more, then challenge your friends online in multiplayer up to 24 players.
Wreckfest arrived on Xbox Game Pass back in February. If you missed our Wreckfest review, read it here.
On the primal side of things, the “smashability” of vehicles makes for an incredibly realistic driving experience. Collisions and body damage don’t feel pre-programmed as the shapes you can crush your hapless opponents into feels limitless. Whether shearing off a bumper or sandwiching a car into a pocket-sized has-been, Wreckfest allows your skill and creativity to do the talking. Of course, on the flip side of things, one wrong turn and you can find yourself shambling your way to the finish line with a mangled piece of equipment you previously thought was an indestructible weapon. The AI deserves a lot of credit in this installment as opponents are not simply there to race, but actively looking to destroy you as well.
