Has Destructive Tendencies
Destruction Derby racing returns in all it's beautiful maniacal glory in the form of Bugbear Entertainment's 'Next Car Game' which is now available via Steam Early Access and includes three tracks and two playable cars. The game comes from the insane minds of those behind the FlatOut series and if you've ever played any of those then a smile should be appearing on your face thinking about just what this game could entail.
Last year Bugbear ran a Kickstarter to try and fund the game but unfortunately that was unsuccessful and they pulled it with a week to go. They didn't stop making it though, and now via Steam Early Access and their own website you too can pick-up the working-title and see why many people are really excited to see this game evolve. For years many have been shouting for a new Destruction Derby type game and now it looks like 'Next Car Game' will fill this void extremely well, it's not all arena based of course as there is normal racing but the damage engine it possesses it's almost a near certainty even those will turn into pure carnage.
Note that an Early Access is exactly that, it's a chance to get in on the development of the game before it's reached even a Beta state, in most cases it may even be able Pre-Alpha and suffer bugs and glitches which you are expected to submit to the developers to help eradicate them for future releases. The following warning appears on the page itself so if you want to make the leap - and we really think you should - then just remember the below:
There is a Digital Deluxe Edition available too which includes some additional and exclusive content:
Digital Deluxe Edition
Backer Race Car
A special in-game race car that's not going to available later!
A set of cool wallpapers to trick out your desktop in style.
A rocking soundtrack of the game.
This extra content will be available at a later date.
But wait! There's more! Buyers and early-adopters of the game will also get access to an equally fun Technology Sneak Peek that allows you to shoot, crush, crunch and drop vehicles as well as perform many insane physics based activities.
'Next Car Game' is destined for a 2014 release on PC and early access is available on Steam and the official website. What about console? Well a Xbox One and PS4 version was hinted at when the original Kickstarter was underway but since that failed nothing else has been said about the gen 8 twins.
