Ubisoft announced today 187 Ride or Die, an urban-themed combat racing game that plunges players into a brutal street-racing gang war where victory depends on ruthless driving and deadly shooting skills.
187 Ride or Die features the voices and likenesses of rising young actors including Larenz Tate (Menace II Society, Ray), Noel Gugliemi (Training Day, The Fast and the Furious), and Guerilla Black. 187 Ride or Die tells the story of a reluctant urban hero named Buck (L. Tate), a young man living a thug’s life seething with money, fast cars and beautiful women — with danger lurking around every corner. Set in the underworld of Los Angeles, Buck must defend the territory of his mentor Dupree (G. Black) from a menacing nemesis and his gang of bandit roughriders, led by Cortez (N. Gugliemi), who are determined to take control of the streets.
“Ubisoft is bringing something unique to the racing genre, which accounts for nearly 20% of the console market,” said Tony Kee, Ubisoft’s VP of Marketing. “With an engaging storyline, an addictive blend of street racing and combat, and an impressive soundtrack, 187 Ride or Die has the kind of edge that will appeal to racing and hip-hop enthusiasts alike.”
187 Ride or Die will ship for the current home consoles and PC by the end of this summer.
