Blood Drive announced

Activision presents Blood Drive, a vehicular combat game in a city invested by zombies, which reminds both Carmageddon and Twisted Metal. Here are the first images, the press release and a trailer. Release planned for November on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Press release:


MINNEAPOLIS, MN – September 10, 2010 – A post-apocalyptic gladiator arena filled with zombies with attitudes and armored war machines sets the stage for the ultimate bloodsport in Activision Publishing, Inc.’s (Nasdaq: ATVI) upcoming Blood Drive, infecting stores this November for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

In Blood Drive, contestants must use their motorized death steeds of steel in a televised game show where drivers battle each other and hordes of revolting flesh eaters in an all-out fight to the death. Face undead frat boys, cops, strippers and bachelorette partiers, each with their own special brand of death and devastation – and ways to die! While these rotting monsters wander the streets of a desert sin city craving sweet, succulent brains, your enemies have come equipped battle hardened armed vehicles, including heavily weaponized muscle cars, hot rods, and more. Amidst this gore-drenched mayhem contestants must use their head or lose it!

“Over-the-top vehicular combat and zombies are two things that go great together,“ said David Pokress, Activision Publishing. “What more is there to say?”

Blood Drive features several gruesome events set up as tournaments in the game’s six unforgiving environments. Battling for top position is even more satisfying in multiplayer modes where up to four friends can drop in and drop out of the bloodbath at any time. With such a target rich environment, it won’t take you long before you send the endless mass of blood-thirsty zombies and battle hardened maniacs back to hell, one bloody tire-tread at a time!

Blood Drive will be available this November for $49.99. The game is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. For more information, visit www.activision.com.

A game announced two months before its release can't be great , it's an immutable rule ^^

Looks more like a XBLA game than a full price game.

Lol. Apparently my index finger hit the mouse button twice.

No, it's not an arcade title. It's priced 50 dollars.

you guys OBVIOUSLY arent Carmageddon fans. i just looked at these screenshots and almost creamed my pants. i cant wait to try this one, i just hope its fun, has great music and has the post-apocalyptic atmosphere just like Carmageddon did

WTB New carmageddon with play style more like carma 1-2 without the shitty missions

This looks.. ok
Commented on 2010-09-29 23:21:01
How about trying something new for a change? We've this setting way too many times. Carmageddon was fun it wouldn't hurt trying to reinvent the whole thing again.
Commented on 2010-09-30 04:10:51
It would be awesome if it was on PSN for $15.
Commented on 2010-09-30 09:47:30
It looks cool to me, but hell it doesn't show any gameplay... though it looks like a cross between Dead Rising and Carmaggedon...

Oh well, won't buy it anyway.

Would like to see damage engine,... If it doesn't bend where it hits i wont touch it :|
