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."
the casting was also rather unfortunate too seeing as the main kid, written as a straight guy is about as camp as they come. i was honestly expecting a gay twist or something. (9 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: i just didn't get it. there was no point to it. no life changing event. nothing. it was litterally some boring kids life up until the age of 18 or something. (10 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: BoyHood is indeed a big pile of shite. Did we just agree on something KORN? ;) (15 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: they troll a kid into cooking his laptop on the stove, and microwaving his battery. (after soaking in salt water and smearing butter on it) (33 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: some idiots came together probably on some forum to "help" a 14 year old with a virus. And talk him into doing shit. Thankfully he doesnt get naked or kill himself....this time. (33 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Not gonna watch all that now, what happens? :) (41 minutes ago)
@bleachedsmiles: Yep. Honestly i would expect it the other way around. It's quite odd. And by now i had expected MS to make something fully exclusive too. (42 minutes ago)
