C’mon, there is a vehicle called the KillerPig…how is Wreckfest NOT a great Community Night title for the Pork Chop Platoon???
So for the last few weeks (and the next several I assume) we have featured Wreckfest, a demolition derby racer developed by Bugbear Entertainment and published by THQ Nordic and is included with Game Pass, as our Saturday Night Community Night title. Our Staff is always on the look out for games that allow for a large number of players with private, dedicated servers. This really allows us to choose the game type and racetrack and enables the host to let people know which vehicles are to be used for each race. Simple setups and controls (right trigger throttle, left trigger brakes…my kind of game!) makes the game very accessible to those that had never played before. Simplicity also reduces downtime which is a huge plus when hosting a lobby.
Wreckfest has produced packed lobbies and lots of laughs and maybe a little, or a lot, of trash talking. The three team, all RV demolition derby is still my favorite custom game variant. Nothing like t-boning an unsuspecting vehicle though I am not sure if our under 40 crowd understands my “Malachi Crunch” references. There is room in the lobby for random players and most seem to pick up on the vehicle they should chose. If they choose not to comply we have the option to use the vote to kick system which is very effective.
If you would like to join us for a few games and get a feel for what we are all about please enlist on our forums and Discord channel today!
