The 2021 Spring Release – BeamNG.drive v0.22

Hello everyone, we’re thrilled to release BeamNG.drive V0.22 today! This update comes with some major content additions and updates. This includes audio polishing, quality of life improvements for various levels, a brand new gameplay perspective, and the inclusion of a long-awaited vehicle! We hope this content continues to bring some much-needed fun and immersion for you. As always, we appreciate your continued support.

Soliad Wendover

Let’s begin things with the highly anticipated and legendary Wendover! Produced from 1987 to 1995 by American automaker Bruckell and sold under their luxury marquee Soliad, the Wendover is the epitome of late 1980s technology and styling. Sharing much of its underpinnings with the smaller LeGran, the larger, sleeker coupe body allows for a powerful transverse-mounted V8 engine to be fitted in place of the factory standard V6. The LeGran’s 4 cylinder engines can also be fitted, and all engine options have superchargers available to boost power. The Wendover features advanced mono-leaf rear suspension, allowing for the installation of a rear differential to transform the vehicle into a snappy, responsive handling machine.

Nestled in the luxurious, comfortable interior is the latest and greatest high-tech digital dashboard; the Wendover Information System, or WIS. Futuristic gauges and easy-to-read display can keep the driver constantly aware of everything they might need to know. The Wendover received a face lift in 1992, adding flip-up headlights, even sleeker, more modern styling and a lightly updated interior. Unable to recapture the initial popularity brought on by Bruckell’s deal with the Belasco 400 to make the Wendover its official pace car, production stopped in 1995.

Despite its odd weight and size, the Wendover is considered by many to be an excellent performance car given the right modifications, and has been used for everything from track racing, rallies, hillclimb time trials or even demolition derbies. We hope you run the storied Wendover through this entire gamut of activities, and much more!

Walking Mode

Aside from the latest addition of the Wendover, we even have a new Walking Mode to try out! With this mode, we’ve enhanced the feeling of being an actual, living driver in the game. Through the first-person perspective, you can hop out of a vehicle and traverse the environment at eye level, with movement speed changing depending on your surroundings and terrain. Simply hop from car to car in a parking lot for a whole different perspective.

Press F to use it.


Vehicle Triggers

Alongside this, we’ve added Vehicle Triggers that you can take advantage of in several camera modes. These small but specific sequences can be activated on a vehicle. It could be as simple as adjusting a pickup truck’s trunk after loading it with materials, or guiding the ramp of a maintenance vehicle down to the ground. Triggers are fully configurable on each vehicle, but please keep in mind that only a few vehicles feature them at the moment.


While we’re on the topic of increased immersion, we are happy to announce the addition of Vehicle Pooling for traffic. Once this feature is enabled, the variety of vehicles you encounter will be far greater. please note that this is still a work in progress, and we will continue to update this feature throughout development.

Bruckell Legran Remaster

Last but not least, the Bruckell Legran Remaster is finally rolling in! Featuring new facelift variants, a remastered 3D model, highly improved interior, and loads of different configurations for various play styles. Whether it’s a plain sedan or a police cruiser, there’s lots to take on with the Bruckell Legran Remastered.

In addition, we’ve released a new website and refreshed our documentation.

There’s still plenty more to discover in 0.22. Many further fixes, optimizations, and improvements were implemented for game audio, physics, engine, World Editor, and more. Check out the full list below.
