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.

Arcade title?

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
Commented on 2010-09-29 22:48:05
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 :|

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (30 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (45 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (47 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (48 minutes ago)
