Through a publication in the Steam forums, Bugbear Entertainment announced that the next version of the Early Game Access program Next Car: Wreckfest will feature improvements in Physics Engine and to show their progress they have posted some new screenshots.

No date for the final version of Wreckfest, but this new update is expected by the end of January. The announcement also mentioned the return of a team member Bugbear, which will help with the mechanisms of deformation damage.

“As it stands while this [Physics Engine] is written, we’re still a bit off from that mark: yesterday cars could fling themselves into low Earth orbit after hitting a pebble, or do a full 720 backflip from the smallest bounce. Today, we’re down to doing only mad amount of big air and several consecutive barrel rolls, so there’s definite progress!”

Enjoy the screenshots:
