Vehicular Combat Is Back With Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks

The vehicular combat genre is something I really miss. Sure, kart racers may have some of that, but what I want is an all-out free-for-all brawl like the Twisted Metal days. That’s just what Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks looks to deliver.

I spotted the trailer for Speed Freeks over at GameSpot. It’s all-out Ork mayhem! WAAAGH!

Yes, it is as simple as you think. Build your rig and shoot it out!

Sadly, a release date has not been listed, but what we do know is that Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks will be free-to-play. Sadly, that means the game may be full of microtransactions. Hopefully, these will all be skins and not pay-to-win.

If you want to try out the game early, here’s some good news. The game has an alpha test going on right now on Steam.

In the 41st Millennium, a kult of unhinged, speed-obsessed Orks have emerged from their endless Waaaghs! They call themselves SPEED FREEKS.

Players assemble their mob of dakka-spitting wagons, pushing their team to victory across multiple maps in this explosively unique take on the combat racing and shooter genres. Obliterate your Ork foes with kunnin’ strategies and brute force as your team speeds towards ultimate glory.

Here are the system requirements for Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks:


    • Processor: Intel core i5-2500/ AMD Ryzen 1300X
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1650 / AMD Radeon RX 570 (A minimum of 4 GB of VRAM)
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection


    • Processor: Intel core i7-7700k/ AMD Ryzen 3600
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia RTX 2080 / AMD Radeon RX 6700-XT (A minimum of 4 GB of VRAM)
    • Network: Broadband Internet connection

Thankfully, the game’s visuals don’t look like they’re going to tax your system because there’s no way you’re going to compete if your framerate starts to dip mid-battle.
