Pyroblazer Announced

Huh. I never got e-mailed a press release before, but now they've found me. Seems I'm going to encourage them by posting the entirety of what they sent me, along with all 10 screenshots. Click to see...

PYROBLAZER™ PRESS RELEASE

Wellingborough, UK: Candella Systems Ltd and Eipix Entertainment are pleased to announce Pyroblazer™, a futuristic combat racing game for the PC, Nintendo Wii® & Sony PSP®.

Set amidst the awe-inspiring locations of New Apeiron, players get the opportunity to race through a multitude of environments using a wide selection of anti-gravity craft known as Blazers. In their quest for glory, players can blast their way through the scorched valleys of Gnosis, the deserted cities of Haedra or the densely populated Underdome of Evelads.

As the players fight their way through the championship, improved Blazers with better speed, handling and superior firepower become available. Players also have the ability to pick up weapon and ammo upgrades during the race, further enhancing their ability to land the killer blow.

In addition to the single player modes such as Quick Race and Championship, Pyroblazer™ will also offer players the ability to compete against each other in 6-player local and internet-based combat racing. Powered by Eipix’s proprietary Ultra Engine and Ageia’s PhysX™ middleware, the game offers racing and sci-fi fans an experience unlike any other in the genre.

Pyroblazer™ on the PC will be available to buy in June 2008. For more information about the game, publishing or digital distribution enquiries, Email info@candellasoftware.com.

Looks pretty neat. Kind of like Hi-Octane. I have been waiting for a remake for a while. So much so that I am running dosbox just to play it.
