THQ has just announced a new title in the "MX Vs ATV" series due in May on PS3 and Xbox 360. The main feature of MX vs ATV Alive is the ability to physically fight with the other racers, somewhat as in Road Rash for the old-timers. So here are a virile trailer, some images and a press release.
Press Release :
AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Jan 19, 2011 - THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced MX vs. ATV®AliveTM, the next groundbreaking installment in the 10 million unit-selling franchise, is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360® video game entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for a suggested retail price of $39.99. Featuring an enhanced physics engine and the most authentic motocross racing experience to date, MX vs. ATV Alive will be supported by an unprecedented digital content distribution strategy upon its scheduled launch in May 2011.
"With innovative technological advances and an unparalleled variety of content, the MX vs. ATV franchise has always led the pack in the off-road racing genre," said Danny Bilson, THQ Executive Vice President of Core Games. "This year, MX vs. ATV Alive is bringing fans the features they asked for, along with a robust content distribution strategy that offers a great new way for gamers to specialize their experience."
"MX vs. ATV Alive introduces a new Bar-to-Bar gameplay mechanic that allows players to physically fight for the lead by going elbow-to-elbow and banging handlebars," said Michael Lustenberger, THQ Vice President of Global Brand Management Online/Digital. "Combined with the smoother controls and refined terrain deformation, the intense rider collision will make this the most realistic and accessible motocross game yet."
@itaintrite - When The Last of Us Remastered first started accepting pre orders, the cost was $59.99 ($63.59 with tax). I got $10 back, plus the additional $28 for trading in the PS3 version of TLOU. (1 Hour ago)
That's a great deal if you already have the PS3 version lol. Why did it cost you $63.59 though? They would've had to give you back the difference either way. (1 Hour ago)
@itanite - I had pre ordered in full when it cost $63.59, so when I used the trade in deal, I got $38 change back. I used that towards Alien Isolation pre order. (2 Hours ago)
@itainite - that's a pretty good deal, but Gamestop's current trade-in deal (The Last of Us PS3), you could get the TLOU Remastered for only $27 (tax included). (2 Hours ago)
I preordered at BestBuy to use my $15 promo code :) TLoU same day pick up for $35, whoot. (2 Hours ago)
@Doom_Bringer - Oh. I had to do the same thing, but I did it 4 days ago. Sorry they're now all sold out. :( (2 Hours ago)
@Loakum: I wanted to take advantage of the $24 trade in deal. I had it pre ordered but cancelled it at the last minute (2 Hours ago)
