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.

Featured mod

Somerset, UK

by el-ferrito This month's featured mod is the Somerset, UK map by el-ferrito. While the map isn't an exact copy of the real-world area, it manages to evoke the spirit of Somerset.

The map is based on satellite images, but this talented modder has made some modifications to elevation and road layout in order to produce the best driving experience.

The dirt roads encourage rally driving, the buildings encourage role play, and there are four time-trial challenges to be found on the map.
