FLATOUT SMASHES INTO STORES

Over-the-Top Racing Title Hits
Retail Shelves

SAN FRANCISCO – July 19, 2005 – Get
ready to chuck everything you learned in driver’s ed out the window… Empire
Interactive, a U.K. computer games developer and publisher, today announced that
FlatOut is now available at retail outlets nationwide for PlayStation®2
computer entertainment system, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft and the PC.

FlatOut brings racing mayhem to a
new level with 36 challenging tracks, fully destructible environments, 16 fully
upgradeable cars and six death-defying bonus events. Anything destroyed or
altered stays a part of the race – broken fences, free rolling tires, and even
mangled parts of cars are left scattered around the track, increasing the
carnage with every lap. Drivers will even be thrown from crashing cars!

The chaos continues off the classic
track in three destruction derby arenas, three head-on collision dirt tracks and
six outrageous “Rag Doll Olympics” bonus games that utilize driver ejection to
the fullest.

Developed by Bugbear Entertainment,
and distributed by Vivendi Universal Games in the U.S., FlatOut carries a
suggested retail price of $49.99 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions and
$39.99 for the PC version. For more information and to experience the rush of
FlatOut first hand, visit:
