Welly well well, darlings. It seems there’s a new racing game with a twist coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 this fall titled Blood Drive, and it is being touted as “Shaun of The Dead meets Mad Max meets Death Race” (the ORIGINAL, I’m hoping).
Set, predictably enough, in post-apocalyptic Vegas (*cough* Fallout: New Vegas *cough* Dead Rising 2), your goal is basically take out EVERYONE, meaning zombies and other drivers, with the aid of a car equipped with weapons. Kinda sounds like fun … let’s hope it lives up to the hype when the game is released in November.
From the Press Release
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 Activision online.”
