Soft-body physics

The BeamNG physics engine is at the core of the most detailed and authentic vehicle simulation you’ve ever seen in a game. Every component of a vehicle is simulated in real-time using nodes (mass points) and beams (springs). Crashes feel visceral, as the game uses an incredibly accurate damage model.

Vehicles

BeamNG.drive offers dozens of refined, completely customizable vehicles to experiment with. Whether it’s a compact car or massive truck, players can tweak away at all the moving parts to create just about any driving experience desirable. Wheels, suspension, engines, and more; everything is under your control.

Environments

There’s plenty to discover while driving. Featuring 12 sprawling, beautiful open-world environments, the terrain feels as vast and diverse as the gameplay options. Test out a new setup through tropical jungle passages, barren deserts, urban boulevards, packed highways, and much more.
