Bugbear’s online racing game Wreckfest is coming to consoles next month.

Console players will now be able to challenge others through crazy racing modes, like one involving riding mowers, when Wreckfest releases on August 27.

Wreckfest will be available on PS4 and Xbox One in both standard and deluxe versions. The digital deluxe edition will provide a 24-hour head start into the game on August 26. It will run you $59.99 or the regional equivalent.

Both versions will include the exclusive Bandit Ripper V8 racer for all who pre-order.

The Deluxe Edition also contains the Season Pass, which will grant access to 20 new cars, 20 roof decorations and additional car customization options such as armor, rims and other parts.
