Empire Interactive Announces Ford Racing Offroad
Detailed Tracks and a Fleet of Officially Licensed Off Road Vehicles will Pump Racer's Adrenaline to an All-Time High
Empire Interactive today announced that Ford Racing Off Road for PC, part of the popular Ford license series, is in development and will ship this summer. The newest addition to the Ford Racing franchise leaves its familiar tracks and urban streets behind for racing on tough, rugged terrain. The game features a convoy of vehicles that consumers can race across 24 detailed tracks that are sure to push the vehicles' limits. Thankfully racers won't get stuck in the mud with the introduction of real-time, on-the-go damage repair.
"Thrill seekers can now see if they have what it takes to make it in the high-action sport of off-road racing as they take the driver's seat behind 18 of the toughest 4x4s, SUVs and off-road trucks," said Karim Farghaly, vice president of sales, Empire Interactive. "Taking the license off road takes the successful franchise to an exciting new level."
Ford Racing Off Road has a plethora of new and exclusive features that test players' high-speed driving skills. The fastest Ford Racing title to date challenges players to find hidden routes to gain an advantage and beat out opponents as they powerslide rugged 4x4s through three off-road environments - desert, water, and ice. Racers can power-up on their way to victory with repair pods, time extensions, artifacts, and cash as they speed through 12 race modes - Standard Race, Elimination, Time Attack, Overtake, Slalom, Checkpoint, Checkpoint Sprint, Seconds Out, Gold Rush, Gauntlet, Low Damage Race, and Expedition.
