Rally Trophy returns for the 20th anniversary


It’s been 20 years since JoWood’s Rally Trophy was published. The developer back then: the Finnish team at Bugbear Entertainment. That has meanwhile been with titles like Flatout, Ridge Racer Unbounded and last but not least Wreckfest (from 19,95€ at buy) leave your stamp in the racing game area.

The fact that Bugbear has not forgotten the roots of its success becomes clear with the November update for Wreckfest: There you will find tournaments that are thematically related to the Rally Trophy, a new route and new rewards.

Or to put it in the words of Bugbear:
“We’re thrilled to announce the availability of a new tournament, and it’s something very special!

It’s been 20 years since the historic rally simulation Rally Trophy developed by us was unleashed to the rallying masses, and we thought it would be a perfect way to commemorate the 20th anniversary to bring the game back! Well, obviously not completely but as a special tournament event in Wreckfest.

To challenge the would-be rally drivers is a long special stage winding through countryside fields and woodlands, and with times clocking in at around 6 minutes the route is not only epic in length but also a unique experience for Wreckfest. What’s best is that the track is also accessible outside the tournament so you can experience it also in multiplayer!

And since you of course need a car to match, we’ve prepared a special Boomer RS part bundle inspired by the iconic Rally Trophy car so you can be properly kitted out to tackle the challenge. In addition to the Rally Trophy bundle, a wicked new time attack styled Gremlin bundle is another newcomer in the shop so make sure to check them both out!”

Wreckfest is available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
