Demolition derby 'Wreckfest' launches on Xbox One, go destroy everything else

What you need to know

  • Wreckfest is a demolition derby game that's quite popular on PC.
  • The game just launched on Xbox One.
  • Unfortunately, it's not Xbox One X Enhanced and looks rather blurry.
  • You can purchase the game for $40 through the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).

Wreckfest is an upcoming demolition derby game that has a strong following on PC. According to the developer, the title features epic crashes, close fights over the finish line, and brand-new ways for metal to bend.

Wreckfest is made by Bugbear, who also brought you the FlatOut series. The team is known for exhilarating titles like that.

Wreckfest costs $40 on the Microsoft Store and is only a 12 GB download. However, if you want to buy the season pass, it'll cost you another $20 because the Deluxe Edition (opens in new tab) goes for $60.

We've been playing the game for a few weeks now, and while the performance is stable on Xbox One X, it looks blurry on 4K displays. It's unclear why this game isn't Xbox One X Enhanced because it would greatly benefit from it.
