Ubisoft is publishing a new racing title this spring for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3. The game is being made by none other than Techland, the company behind last year's highly publicized open-world zombie shooter, Dead Island.
For those of you responding with "Mehs" and "Ughs", take note that Techland seems to be better at making racing titles than shooting games. Their Call of Juarez titles are pretty awful but they deserve props for their over-the-top racing title, Nail'd and Xpand Rally Xtreme. If they follow a similar formula to Nail'd with their upcoming game Mad Riders then it could be a real treat for racing fans.
The game will sport more than 45 different tracks to race on from around the world. Like many other arcade racers out there, Mad Riders will sport break-neck speeds, nitro boosts and shortcuts.
There will also be a full-fledged online multiplayer mode for Mad Riders enabling gamers to compete with 11 other racers via SEN or Xbox Live. Unfortunately, no word on whether the game will sport local split-screen support.
It's also interesting that despite Ubisoft whining about piracy they're still releasing games for PC. Maybe the platform makes a lot more money then they thought? *cough*Steam*cough*.
You can look for Mad Riders to land on digital distributors for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this spring. For more info feel free to visit the Official Website.
