Wreckfest is a racing game developed by Bugbear Entertainment and published by THQ Nordic.
It was released on July 14, 2018, for PC, and it later came to consoles such as Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
I would agree when people say that Wreckfest is a spiritual successor to the FlatOut series that was popular on the Playstation 2 and Xbox.
You can play the game as a single-player or compete against others online.
So is Wreckfest cross-platform, meaning is Wreckfest crossplay so you can play with friends across different gaming platforms?

What is Wreckfest? – A quick overview.

There are several different ways to play Wreckfest – both single-player and online.
You can play the standard racing modes if you’re mostly into traditional racing. But there are also options, such as demolition derby, where it’s about causing mayhem on the track. It’s a more traditional tracks type of game, so don’t expect an open world like The Crew 2 or Snowrunner.
The racing levels feel similar to games such as Need for Speed, but there is the added element of vehicular combat. You have to strike a balance between driving defensively and protecting yourself, and knowing when to try to ram your opponents off of the road.
