The Switch version of Wreckfest finally has a release date. The demolition derby themed racing game will hit Nintendo’s console on June 21, 2022, publisher THQ Nordic and developer Bugbear confirmed today.

Wreckfest was first announced for Switch last September. Originally, it was planned for a Fall 2022 release.

Wreckfest will have an up-to-16-player online multiplayer mode on Switch along with offline tournaments at a “steady” 30 frames per second. Two season packages will be offered: Season 1 package includes 20 crazy and iconic vehicles, 20 insane roof decorations, and a car customization pack with new armor, rims and more while Season 2 package provides access to 12 additional cars.

Here’s some information about Wreckfest:

Expect epic crashes, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line and brand-new ways for metal to bend – These are the once-in-a-lifetime moments that can only be achieved in Wreckfest, with its true-to-life physics simulation crafted by legendary developer Bugbear, who also brought you FlatOut 1, 2 and Ultimate Carnage. Burn rubber and shred metal in the ultimate driving playground!
  • Awesome Cars – Old, banged-up, patched-together cars that simply ooze style! From old American heavy-hitters to agile Europeans and fun Asians, you won’t find anything like this in other games.
  • Meaningful Customization – Change not only the look of your cars but also upgrade their body armor
  • Receive free updates that add new tracks and tournament challenges with unique rewards (please note: tournaments will be a free upgrade, available post-launch)
  • Multiplayer – Wreck your friends online and take racing to the limit while chasing for demolition dominance!

A new trailer for the Switch version of Wreckfest can be found below.


Wreckfest will be sold both physically and digitally on Switch for $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99.
