Although BeamNG.drive is a paid game, there is a free tech demo available for those of you looking to just try it out. If you’re looking for the full version of the game, which includes multiple vehicles, various maps, and the ability to install mods, check out my blog post on how to purchase BeamNG.drive.
If you’re just interested in the free tech demo, you’ll find a link buried on BeamNG.com in the middle of the webpage between the Steam and Humble Bundle purchase links. The link it titled “Download the free tech demo” or you can simply click here to download the tech demo directly.
While you only get one vehicle to play around with, the Ibishu Covet, the tech demo will allow you to explore the gridmap containing a number of objects and jumps. This will give you a feel for the game and allow you to experience the realistic physics and crashes in BeamNG.drive. Hopefully once you experience the game, you’ll want to support the developers and upgrade to the full version. Again, you can find my guide on purchasing the full version here.
