    And as an added treat, we wanted to let you know that just in time for the holidays you can expect a content update that will be bringing a new contender to the game’s lineup: the Bruckell Bastion, an American muscle car that can take on all comers with style. Keep an eye on our social media for clues to the other contents of the holiday update!


    My request is finally confirmed :DDDD, i always asked about a new modern car with alot of engine options.....
    this vehicle will probably be my next most driven beamng car after the ETK800

    me lol. I'm not saying it's a problem, it's just a general thing that happens with new updates cause omg so many new things to try out.
    It was going to happen either way. Especially
    the main menu. It was a fine menu, but it pretty basic looking. As for the side menu (well, now the top menu,) I don't mind it, I think it's fine. Just will take some getting used to.

    I think the UI is good. There’s stuff to get used to for it and new controls I still have to rebind, but I think it’s an improvement. I do miss having a light mode though…

    Can we just talk about how the turbocharged Pessima is a thrill to drive? My new standard car is a 2.0 Pessima with a stage 1 turbocharger. Not overpowered, looks good and drives great.

    I wonder what type of engines and how many are in this vehicle Mabey even a hybrid!? hybrid doesn't seem likely though because it is a modern muscle car. looks like the ford Taurus so I wonder if it will have AWD versions.

    Need to agree. Although it's FWD it handles very nicely.

    I imagine it’ll have a v8 and V6, maybe a turbocharged i4. Not sure about awd… could be possible.

    I don't know if it's you who worked on it but I can already see a significative change on the DCTs shifts under mid/high load, they are way smoother than before, barely noticeable now and it's a really nice step in the right direction :). The shift decision is still trash and there's still a few issues but one of the major problems got solved, now all the configs of my V8 mod will use etk's dct.

    yeah, I can see it haveing that almost like the ford mustang had and it could add a new 10-speed transmission even though it's a lot of gears, we don't have it in the game yet other than mods so that would be cool to see.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see AWD; I think most of the Chrysler L-family vehicles have at some point... The LX & LD Charger, the LA Challenger, LX Magnum, and some 300C's. They do have some interesting electronic systems I'd love to see, such as the front wheel drive disconect (do any cars currently in game have this feature?..)

    I'm very curious to see body styles and facelifts. While I don't expect the BeamNG devs to have 3.5 cars over 2 generations like the Chrysler L-cars, I certainly do hope to see a "what if the American wagon never died" car. There is a huge amount of possible content with this platform in game.

    Another thing I'm hoping to see is a godawful base V6 in a pre-facelift... The base LX Charger's didn't even make 180hp...

    As we all know the devs i would be surprised if this doesnt get a sedan and a coupe version since they mashup 2-3 vehicles into one in the Beam Universe.
    I would love to see a "SRT8" sedan and a "Hellcat" coupe top trim!
    And please of course throw the 10-spd auto and AWD in!
    I reaaaaally looking forward to the next two weeks.

    Yeah that's what should have happened, too bad the whole community kept asking for a release date and more teasers

    Yeah was bit of bad move to tuck the most exciting part of the update away to keep us on the line.
    But hey, maybe the car gets more content then.
    I would be really disappointed if they leave the opportunity of 2 bodystyles in the Bastion.
    Have i mentioned that i really looking forward to sweet sweet flatplane V8?!

    I'm almost certain they're gonna give us the Sedan that's been teased and a Coupe body for that sweet (slight) weight reduction.

    One thing I wanna say about the Bastion teaser image is I think they picked that unflattering angle on purpose. It really hides a lot of the lines, and you can see the starker angle the light takes on the right side. From the back and direct side I could see them looking good.


    These look absolutely fantastic though, very Gavril

    I hope you are right.
    I speculate on a extra Coupe body too but i also expected an official RV H Series and was disappointed so lets hope atleast that comes true.
