"We are thrilled that, togehter with Crytek, we can give all PC-players the
possibility to experience Wreckage in all of its variety:
Wreckage throws you in the middle of a nonstop-action firework with superior
vehicle combats, highly detailed landscapes and thunderous teamaction. Using
the powerful CryEngine 2, Wreckage features technology like accurate lip
synchronization, facial animations and the choice between english or spanish subtitles.
We hope that you'll enjoy the game just as much as we enjoyed its development.

We love to read your feedback."

-The Wreckage Team-

Wreckage Standalone Wreckage - Gameplay Act 3Wreckage - US Wreckage - 1.0

Wreckage offers an action-oriented presentation, professional execution, complete dubbing
and Crysis-level graphics. Developed by the four-man-team around Christopher Held, who
also already developed "The Harbour" and "Rainy Days".

It's the final chapter of the story, that began with the map "The Harbour" and was continued in the
modification "Rainy Days". It tells the story of three soldiers who try to survive a devastating war
between two worlds. The play time is somewhat longer than one hour.


  • Cinematic flair: Wreckage puts the player in the middle of thrilling rollercoaster ride with superior vehicle combats and roaring teamaction. Professional voice actors let you enjoy the whole mod with a german synchronisation and full english/spanish subtitles.
  • Great-Looking Visuals: Hand made environments in different scenarios, CryEngine technologies like accurate lip synch and facial animation promises a graphic beauty like you know it from the original game.
  • Bugless: A new chapter system ensures a minimum amount of game errors. In the unlikely event of a bug, this way every chapter can be restarted.
  • Playable without Crysis: Just download the standalone version.

Standalone Version - Playable without any installed game (1900 MB)
Mod Version - Requires Crysis-Wars with Patch 1.5 (280 MB)
Desura Version - Requires Crysis-Wars with Patch 1.5 (280 MB)

It looks pretty good, however, the fact that you are playing as Americans who for some reason speaks German is beyond annoying.

Had you played as Germans though, I would have been happily suprised that they didnt speak English with a German accent like most gaming companies like EA or Activision would do it.

DICE has a big publisher behind them and lots of money. They can hire voice actors.
This guys don't have anyone backing them and did a great job so you and me can download this game for free.

Then the game should focus about German Military, etc rather than the American Military, etc.

TheNodCommander May 7 2012 replied:

Thats what I had in mind as well. Would've been a lot cooler in a "make-sense" point of view.

Us in Scandinavia is not used to voice-dubbing anything else than cartoons, hence it sounds very strange for someone like me.

(I haven't played the mod yet)
I agree that it would be neat if they made the models look German or "atleast" provide German identification badges(like you usually see on military clothes)

However I understand the reason to use German voice, as it was available for them, and clearly it is a feature provided to the story of the mod.
If there are subtitles, then do I not see any reason to complain about the voice.

The problem here is, we have over 7000 words of dialogues with a total playtime of 27 minutes. We are ok at English, but not great. And we don't want to bother someone with a bad translation, so we have to write the script in German first and then send it to a translator. This takes a lot of time. By the time it's finished, the German dialogues are already fully recorded and we need them for reference and design. If we then would search for 10 English speakers, who also would have to lip sync their dialogues to the German speakers, it would be a nightmare to record, cut and implement.

If it really bothers you that much, just go into the audio options menu and turn down the dialogues volume to 0. You then can play Wreckage like any English mod, which just doesn't have dialogues and only subtitles.

I've got no problems with the voices , they are really good , people are just too picky and biased of the idea that US soldierd don't speak English ; think of it this way , some people don't like English voices and prefer them in Russian or their own language .

This mod is great , I've played it when it released as a mod for crysis :) , real AAA quality from all aspects . Haters gonna hate or find reasons not to like a masterpiece .

LordDz May 5 2012 replied:

It's not that, it's that we like native people to speak their own languages, as for example: If the soldiers were Russian, they should speak russian, if they were spanish: Speak spanish, etc.

It helps with the ambience.
Anyway, I will try it out when I get my computer, and will probably enjoy it as much.

It does ? I do hope you've actually played all games in their own languages then . Witcher , polish , Gothic in german , Metro 2033 ukrainian only language .

WEird fetishes you guys got :) , you can't let go of a US soldier speaking a different language , you just can't :)

@cobacel I think you didn't get the point here. what he meant is that Russian soldiers should speak russian with one another, same goes as American soldier speak in English, German soldiers - German. It helps with the atmosphere imo.
Also, Metro 2033 migght be made by a Ukrainian company, but the setting is in Moscow

I can understand that, though, I dont see why something simple as knowing the English language would be an obstacle in such a big project like this.

Brainlaag May 14 2012 replied:

It's not only about "knowing" the language but having voice actors which can transfer emotions, etc. through, while not having an all to strong accent. IMO it would be more irritating to hear the dialogues with an accent, rather than pure German.

I do get your point but they stated it would cause a lot of trouble for them to get all things settled and apparently, it's not worth the effort.

BTW excellent job guys *thumbs up*

Jaco_E May 8 2012 replied:

No you can't.
And even if it would work, there would be a huge lack of missing content, because the standalone version of our mod only has the files it definitely requires.
That means that other mods, if they would at least start, have missing parts all over the game :p

Hamers May 9 2012 replied:

This is a known bug, but even after rebuilding the whole part the bug was still present, so it has something to do with the CryEngine. It also doesn't happen every time.

But their is a quick fix: Just go into the main menu, select Singleplayer->Chapter Selection, scroll to the very right and choose the last chapter, you should exactly start where you left off and the bug should be fixed. Just follow Major Cafferty.

Awesome mod guys.. At first I was a bit sceptical about the German voiceovers and all.. But once I played it I found out it actually might have done the mod better, by separating it from other mods (as they're usually in English). As long as there are subtitles (no shortage of them in Wreckage!) it's okey, but in this case it was very good! :)

Your cinematics are pretty cool I must say.. A bit sad your own weapons didn't fire "real" bullets with hit materials but maybe that's just me :p Loved the way the UMP operates..

Overall, definitely a great job! I just hope this is not your last work as Wreckage is the last in the trilogy. Keep up the good work :)

When you first start Wreckage, an input box should appear and you have to enter 1,2,3 for German,English or Spanish subtitles. If you typed in the wrong number, browse to the Wreckage/Game/Localized folder and delete the "Default.lng" file. When you start Wreckage now, the input box should appear again.

Also just the subtitles are translated, the spoken language is always German.

Never played Crysis before, but this is just something else. As a mod, it's very well done, and the fact that everything is in German is a bit annoying at first but it's easily adjusted to; it's why subtitles were invented. Great mod guys; the lack English voice lines is a very minor drawback in the scheme of things.
