A new kart-racing game from the great people from THQ Nordic, have been announced for Switch. It's apperantly a sucessor to the Burnout games for the GameCube and it looks really fun and i'm sure pretty to look at :>

I've heard nothing but praise for the game over the years.

However, I question how well it'll run on Switch.

@Magician It doesn't look graphically demanding, so i'm sure it's going to look and run great!

Surprised to see this on Switch, but cool. Gotta love THQ Nordic for keeping the Switch in mind more than most publishers.

1. wreckfest is not a kart racing game
2. its a successor to the flatout series, not burnout
3. the game is very demanding in terms of cpu power. even with my ryzen 5 2600 6 core processor i get framedrops under 60fps at the start of races with 24 cars

4. it is hella fun (playing it since it was released on pc years ago)

by the way the game still gets new content every few weeks or so. some paid and some free. new cars, paints and even tracks. it's great.

Yeah, like it isn't a pretty game necessarily on PC. But you have a lot of cars on a track at once, all smashing each other into bits. You would have to assume they would have to make some concessions to do that on the Switch without it chugging.

@YusseiWarrior3000 I think being realistic is perhaps more the case.

Even the XBO and PS4 have downgrades compared to the PC version. The Switch is likely to have downgrades compared to the XBO and PS4 version.

The only thing they've basically confirmed is that it has 16 players online, which is the same as XBO/PS4, although less than XSS/XSX/PS5/PC (as you'd expect with them being next-gen). They say it also maintains 30FPS, likewise the same as PS4/XBO, graphics wise they've sent out mixed messages, so it's hard to tell how it actually looks,

wow 16 is a huge downgrade from the 24 vehicles you have in a race on pc.

Yeah until the next gen upgrades, the console version was pretty severely compromised versus the PC version. That is why I am worried about the Switch version - it is not a question of underestimation like someone suggested, it is just processing the data.

Can't see this running well without some severe downgrades. Even a base PS4 struggles at times.

I’d recommend this on a different platform if you have access.
