Default MX vs ATV Untamed announced

THQ have announced MX vs ATV Untamed for Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS in January 2008. It will also be coming to the PS2 and PSP. So basically, it is coming out on every console platform known to man…almost. Details next.

The latest addition to the off-road racing franchise will feature bigger, more populated outdoor open-world environments, an X-cross career mode showcasing all eight vehicles and an all-new mode being dubbed ‘EnduroCross’. This will pit gamers against logs, rocks, mud-pits and more. Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at THQ had this to say:

“The MX vs ATV franchise is the entrenched off-road leader and has evolved into one of the top racing properties. The expansion to the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system, and innovative game-play made possible with the franchise’s debut on Wii and Nintendo DS, position MX vs ATV Untamed to significantly grow our global share of the racing market.”

“We’ve taken the core MX vs ATV racing experience and tailored game-play to match the strengths of each individual gaming machine,” said Jack Sorenson, executive vice president of worldwide studios, THQ. “The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, Wii and PlayStation 2 system versions, the PSP system version, and the DS version will all deliver unique experiences that capture the franchise’s strengths and maximize the fun gamers have on their system of choice.”

A bit more about the game for you now. MX vs ATV Untamed will feature the Rhythm Racing physics engine on all systems which will (apparently) enhance the off-road experience. Rainbow’s critically acclaimed physics have been supercharged with all-new improvements for next-gen action, featuring throttle based power-slides, near upside down whips and new scrubs at full speed, giving players more control whilst retaining an authentic feel.

Players will compete in new event types, race with all-new vehicles and experience the ultimate X-Cross career mode, where they must master all eight vehicles, including the new ORV Sport. The largest, most detailed racing worlds to date will showcase all-new modes and event types, pitting racers against logs, rocks, mud pits and more in EnduroCross and letting players tear through treacherous trails with all the vehicles competing against each other in Opencross. Stadium-based Supercross racing will be returning, with all the top Motocross and ATV professional riders, and the entire game will be available online…although THQ haven’t said on which system it will be online. We’ll have more on this game soon.
