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 :

@Melmoth: Well like I've been saying.. scoring isn't very important or very highly emphasized in Overwatch. But there are several medals that show you if you're leading your team in one of five (3 minutes ago)
based on how well he does that, or does it only reward more concrete actions, like dmg? (6 minutes ago)
i watched a vid of overwatch now. some char with freeze skills. most of the match it looked like they player was putting up icewalls and stuff, so basically crowd control. will he get a rating/score (7 minutes ago)
But.. even if you throw out scoring.. I still want stats. Just give me the spreadsheet. I know what to do with it. (15 minutes ago)
yea, i mean, if they can't reward supporting classes correctly, it's no point in ranking them (at the bottom) in a scoring system (26 minutes ago)
Or.. you can just give up and throw away scoring all together :P (28 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Depends on the game but sure. Capturing objectives and support actions should be highly valued. (28 minutes ago)
