Activision has
released some more information on their upcoming game – Monster Jam:
Urban Assault. 
The game will be released on   Wii, PS2, PSP
and DS at the end of the month – October 28th.. Urban Assault
features various game modes, tracks inspired by real cities and Monster
Truck stadiums (info below). They’ll be 27 playable trucks in the game which

Force. As the days continue to count down until the game launches, we will
have another update on the trucks.  



Monster Jump –

Monster Jump is
all about airtime! Launch your truck off the ramp and fly the farthest to
win – but try to hit the Monster Obstacles on the way to bank some major


Trickster –

Trickster is
YOUR time to shine! Reach deep into your bag of tricks and dominate this
Monster Jam size, skate park-style track! Bust out flat spins, barrel rolls,
back flips, and more before the timer runs out and strut your stuff in front
of the capacity crowd! Link your tricks and keep those combos going to earn
Spectacle Points – AND the fan’s hearts!


Skill Jump

In Skill Jump
major points are yours for the taking. Soar off the ramp and land on the
high-scoring areas to snag the most points – but don’t forget to demolish
some obstacles along the way to earn multipliers!


Air Strike

The destructive
possibilities are endless in Air Strike! A field chock full of objects just
waiting to be thrashed and you have your pick of five different jumps to get
the job done! But choose your ramps carefully, as certain ones lead to more
destruction than others.



Making its
first appearance in Monster Jam: Urban Assault will Oakland’s McAfee
Coliseum. The most recent Monster Jam there was February 2nd when nearly
30,000 rain-soaked Monster Jam fans took in one of the muddies tour stops in
history! Also making its first appearance in Monster Jam: Urban Assault
is the Tacoma Dome. Notoriously one of the most well attended Monster Jam
stops of the season, Monster Jam fans routinely pack the Tacoma Dome’s 5
performances that always take place in a 72-hour span! The Tacoma Dome is
one of the largest wood domed structures in the world, opening April 21,
1983 and it hosted its first major concert when David Bowie played to a sold
out crowd. The Tacoma Dome roof weighs nearly 1.5M pounds and stands 152
feet tall.


Other stadiums you’ll see: Ford Field, Dolphin Stadium, Alamodome, Sam Boyd
Stadium, and the Metrodome,
