This is the new racing project from Three Fields Entertainment, formed by some ex-pats of the Burnout development team. They have been making Burnout Lite indie games for a little while now (they made Dangerous Driving and Danger Zone, spiritual successors of Burnout and its Crash Mode, plus Dangerous Golf, and they had a Dangerous Driving sequel which probably grew into this,) and this is their first major label title. By the description, it reads like a combination of Burnout Paradise and Trackmania, mixed with a little programming complexity of LBP. There is a whole open-world designed to race around in, 400 square KMs of land to drive around as you like, but then also you can put wild stunt tracks and ramps and obstacles anywhere you want. (It appears that the open-world city is groomed and locked down, although you can place buildings. So this isn't like ModNation where you can change everything and redo the topography; instead, it's more like a skatepark designer where you put dangerous stuff everywhere you see and then ramp off it all.)
Wreckreation is exactly that. Developed by Three Fields Entertainment, the UK-based team comprised of veteran arcade racing game developers, Wreckreation finally hands you the keys to your own MixWorld. This will be a MixWorld that you can decorating and personalize,
either alone or in collaboration with your friends online. A place of your own where you can continually strive to outrace, out-stunt or even out-crash yourself and others with courses, tracks and game modes designed by you – or your friends – but yours will probably be better.
Mix Your WorldPersonalise your MixWorld that you design from free camera view. Place jumps, loops, stunt ramps, half and full pipes, meet up points, and moving obstacles almost anywhere in your MixWorld. Build roads on and off-road, across lakes, out to sea or up in the sky. Once you’ve explored your World, you get to rename everything. Soon the whole world really will know your name!
Mix Your CarPaint colors, finishes, wheels, boost flames, engine sounds, glass colors, tires, brake lights, manual or stick – you name it, you can customize it. Vehicle options will be right there for the taking from the beginning. After all, this is your MixWorld. Now it’s your way AND the highway right?
MixModesIn your MixWorld you are the GameDJ. You now have the power to create and control the gameplay. This can be a simple as creating a quick, individual race to the next intersection or a team stunt event where catching the most air and landing the first barrel roll can help your team take the win. Grant others temporary powers as ‘Guest DJ’ as well. Try new things, experiment and create your own game modes. Share with your friends or the community.
Mix Your MusicWhat’s the second thing you do after starting your car? Figure out what you’re going to listen to. Wreckreation offers its own, old-school FM Radio dial featuring 16 stations ranging from Disco to Gospel or from Movie Music to Smooth Jazz. Talk Radio provides meaningful updates about what’s happening in your MixWorld. You can also stream your favorite playlist from your Premium Spotify account.
Be a Wreckord BreakerSet records seven different ways on every road you drive – every time you drive: Drift, Air, Near Miss, Oncoming, Stunt, Crash and the more traditional Fastest Time. In Wreckcreation, all wreckorded, no matter what you’re doing. Define how your Friends can challenge you by ‘locking’ different Wreckord Types to different roads.
Mix It AllChoose time of Day, Weather and Traffic! What happens in your MixWorld is up to you. At the click of a button, change the time, change the weather, and turn the traffic on or off. Settle in and make yourself comfortable.
Vacant LotsEmpty areas you’ll discover throughout your MixWorld. We built this city on Wreck and Roll! An opportunity to build structures that can inform MixModes and experiences beyond the structure’s footprint. Example: Add a police station and see more of a police presence.
(*This came out earlier but apparently most of the THQ event trailers didn't get cross-posted, so if you've ever wanted to own an OT, pick one and get that achievement...)
