Wreckfest Trailer Introduces Zero Hero, The Bonebreaker

THQ Nordic has polished off another Wreckfest trailer, this time looking at adrenaline junkie Zero Hero, the Bonebreaker. Apparently, he’s going to “mess you up bad,” so he’s probably not the type of bloke you want to meet down a dark alleyway at night. Then again, most of the game’s cast are one lager short of a full crate by the look of things.

Wreckfest Trailer Reveals New Character

Check it out below.

Wreckfest is slated for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on August 27. Have a look at another character, Lucky 99, in our earlier story here.

Wreckfest launched on the PC last summer, and is described as marriage of FlatOut and Destruction Derby. PlayStation fans should remember the latter, as it was one of the first games out on PSOne, and was followed a surprisingly brilliant sequel. For many however, Wreckfest is the spiritual successor to FlatOut.

The adrenaline-pumping racer also has a whiff of 1989’s Street Rod about it, and features soft-body damage modelling, affording location-based damage effects that realistically alter the driving mechanics of vehicles as they take a battering. The PC version was in Early Access for four years before the full version launched on June 14, 2018, with the console version suffering multiple delays.

Developed by Bugbear Entertainment, Wreckfest places a heavy emphasis on vehicular combat, with players having to strike a good balance between aggression — that is, grinding against other racers and shoving them out of the way — and defensive play, by avoiding opponents and other obstacles.

The game combines both demolition derby shenanigans with traditional track racing, and features the ability to buy, sell, and customise vehicles.

Here’s the official blurb:

The most destructive and critically acclaimed racing game by legendary Finnish game developer Bugbear Entertainment has completed the qualifying and stands on pole position for its release to race onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
