UBI SOFT ANNOUNCES RED LINE RACER, A THRILLING ARCADE-QUALITY MOTORCYCLE RACING GAME FOR PC
Features physics-based modeling, force feedback support & multiplayer options
San Francisco, CA, January 13, 1997 -- Ubi Soft Entertainment announces the upcoming release of Red Line Racer, a motorcycle racing game that brings the adrenaline rush of arcade racing to the PC. The game can be played solo or with up to seven other players on a local LAN or across the Internet.
Developed by Criterion Studios, the company behind the recently released Sub Culture 3D action/adventure strategy game, Red Line Racer features arcade-quality 3D graphics, speeds of up to 60 frames per second, physics-based modeling that simulates the real-world experience of motorcycle riding, and support for force feedback joysticks to heighten the gaming experience.
With the ability to simulate real bike physics, the "feel" of the player's bike changes according to different driving conditions such as slick pavement or icy roads. This realism is enhanced by graphical special effects such as sparks, smoke, and weather conditions that change from torrential rain to drifting fog and hazardous blizzards, real-time lighting effects, backdrop animations, and fully animated bike riders.
The game includes ten treacherous tracks set in six graphically stunning environments, including sandy beaches, Alpine mountains, English country lanes and desert canyons. An original four-track music score and 3D sound add to the excitement.
Red Line Racer is scheduled to be released at retail in Spring 1998.
