Watertown, MA, October 27, 1997 -- Papyrus Design Group, a division of Sierra On-Line, Inc., announces that its first off-road driving program, SODA Off-Road Racing, ships to stores this week.

SODA (Short Course Off-Road Drivers Association) Off-Road Racing, a CD-ROM product for PC, is a racing simulation of off-road vehicles modeled after the SODA World Series of Off-Road Racing. SODA Off-Road Racing has been called "the finest off-road simulator yet released," by Online Gaming Review. The product includes licensing of SODA and some of its major sponsors and is developed for Papyrus Design Group by Software Allies, Inc.

"We had a terrific time creating the most realistic off-road racing simulator," said Steven Travers, producer of SODA Off-Road Racing, "and with three different driving environments, three different vehicle classes and the Track Designer tool, we have provided a long-term challenge with tons of gameplay."

The product includes out-of-the-box Rendition support, an Internet World Wide Ranking System, advanced damage models, several multiplayer options, and twelve pre-constructed tracks for competition. In addition, SODA Off-Road Racing includes an easy-to-use track designer, the first of its kind for off-road driving products.

SODA Off-Road Racing, on CD-ROM for Windows 95, carries a suggested retail price of $49.95. The product can be purchased at computer stores everywhere or by calling Sierra direct at (800) 757-7707.
