Sequel to Award-winning Full Auto Features Strategically Destructible Street Environments to Deliver the Next Generation of Combat-Racing

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (May 2, 2006) - Get ready for the next generation of vehicular mayhem... SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Full Auto™2: Battlelines is being developed exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Full Auto 2: Battlelines puts high-speed vehicles outfitted with weapons and armor into fully realized and fully destructible urban street environments. Fierce combat-racing will ensue as you strategically use destruction to win races as well as leave massive devastation in your wake. Players can destroy the environment to dynamically change track conditions to block competitors, open new paths, or crush opponents with falling debris caused by well-timed missiles. Full Auto 2: Battlelines, which is the sequel to the award-winning Full Auto, also introduces a new Arena Mode featuring team play and six different levels, each specifically designed for a unique type of multiplayer car combat.

"The destructible environments in Full Auto 2: Battlelines are both stunning and strategic, especially in multiplayer combat," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "The gameplay innovations of tactical destruction and team multiplayer vehicular mayhem combined with the tremendous power of Sony's PLAYSTATION 3 console makes this sequel truly the next generation of combat racing."

Full Auto 2: Battlelines, currently being developed by Pseudo Interactive, has been combat-enhanced and fully re-designed with an extensive list of features entirely new to the franchise. Players can get behind the wheel of 25 different vehicles ranging from classic muscle cars and low riders to monstrous SUVs and industrial vehicles, each of which can be customized with more than 20 explosive weapons as well as multiple paint schemes and wheel styles. Taking on more than 20 tracks in the game, players will immediately notice how Full Auto 2: Battlelines pushes next-generation technological boundaries with breathtaking displays of destruction, physics, and speed.

In the new multi-path single player campaign, players battle to take control of Staunton City by conquering the six different districts and taking control of opponent cars and weapons. The game's six different carnage-filled multiplayer modes, which incorporate team play and objectives ranging from classic deathmatches to unique base assaults and gladiator-style gameplay, deliver a diverse range of competitive options. The sequel implements the fan-favorite Unwreck™ feature, which allows players to turn back time and take another shot at a treacherous turn, avoid a deadly obstacle, or simply avoid enemy fire.

With strategic destruction, next generation technology, and innovative, diverse gameplay, Full Auto 2: Battlelines is poised to be one of the most exhilarating combat-racing experiences available for the PLAYSTATION 3 console.

If you notice in the link it says This title has not been approved by Sony, that means Sega didnt even make a deal with Sony of this being an exclusive. LOL

I guess the question we should be asking is....what is sega's exclusive for the 360? I think they're giving an exclusive to each next-gen console; i doubt they're just going with Sony.

Shenmue III?

Since when was Chromehounds a Sega game, it's by Fromsoft and published by Sega.. (this annoys me the same happened with Otogi, Sega got the credit for it)

Lets hope its shenmue 3 ..

As far as i'm concerned PS3 can have Full Auto 2, the 1st one was a terrible game..

Full Auto is by Pseudo and published by Sega. What's the difference?

So... lets see the 360 version is what made the game successful then they just completely deny the game to the fans that ensured its success in the first place?

Now I'm really dying to find out what silikon knight's secret project with sega is.

Sega doesn't hate us--it's just typical Sega dumbassery. We're getting Sega Rally Revo anyway..so I'm still happy.

Pretty ridiculous. I think that Sega hopes that PS3 owners won't know about Full Auto's utter crapness.


But this is scary indeed....It's starting to look bleak for VF5 on 360 now. Same thing happened with Namco and RR...no Tales game like rumored then?

Maybe the tales of title was held off on till E3. The namco rpg still hasn't been revealed to my knowledge.

We'll see though. Microsoft so far is only losing small titles (we knew they weren't getting tekken) who cares about ridge racer (some do i know), but i'm not of em, Full Auto (i was hoping they'd get it right the second time around on 360) its still not a big title though. So far the 360 has lost nothing only things I see not being announced for the 360 are small titles and titles we already knew would never see release on the 360 so that tales title is still a possibility.

It depends if that Namco RPG was culdcept of not..

Personally i don't see a tales series coming to the 360, not anymore, if it does it will probably be multiplatform.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't dissapointed with this news.
I've been looking forward to the sequel to do the things the first one didn't, and on the 360.
Seems like a strange move on Sega's part, I mean the fanbase is on the 360 (duh).

Oh well :(
In reply to

You say we're getting there? Oh, fine.
Any minute now...

Didn't think about Culdcept. Very disappointing, this won't sell as much as a Tales title would.

I doubt that MS will have huge Japanese support at E3, although I hope I am wrong...it's just that if I was them I would have announced it at the April conference...not at a US based event that the Japanese don't care about.

Let's all pray for a good 360 exclusive for Sega and hope for a VF5 port....Is that asking too much already?
