Bugbear’s Next Car Game now on Steam Greenlight

It’s been a week since we opened the doors for pre-orders of our Next Car Game, and now we’re taking the next important step in getting the game to gamers’ hands everywhere: Steam Greenlight!

Being on Steam is the thing we’re getting the most messages about, and we’re not going to disappoint: now the players will have chance to vote to make sure Next Car Game will be published via Steam’s Greenlight!

Early Access

NEXT CAR GAME is currently scheduled to be released on PC as digital download early 2014, and it is available for pre-ordering now. By pre-ordering, the players will get a chance to see the game early – once we reach 10'000 pre-orders we're going to release a sneak peek of the game. This is a going to be a glimpse of great things to come, and a superb way of kickstarting the community.

Then, later this year, all pre-order customers will receive a pre-Alpha build that will give them an early access to the game. This is a much more complete version of the game.

Not only do the players get a chance to join the fun right away and get access to exclusive content, they also get a chance to help shaping the game into something they want to play.

About the game

Our NEXT CAR GAME is all about fun, breakneck racing and over-the-top crashes. We don’t shy away from contact, and our in-house engine is all about what happens when cars collide with each other and the world around them at reckless speeds.

It’s a motorsport, but not just any motorsport. It’s a motorsport with attitude.

Expect epic crashes and tight, neck-to-neck fights over the finish line on run-down racing tracks. Expect proper, big demolition derbies. Expect brand new ways for metal to bend and the defining once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation.

And don’t think that’s all. Not only the technology has been completely overhauled and brought up-to-date, but we’ve also gone to the source and figured out what a game like NEXT CAR GAME is really all about: taking your rust bucket, building it into a formidable track weapon and then battling it out on the track. To that end there’s now a lot of focus on car building and maintenance, with hunting for rare, sought-after parts and replacing damaged components, all that brings an added tactical element to the gameplay.
