Ubisoft has announced their upcoming off-road arcade racing game ’Mad Riders’ developed by Techland (of Dead Island fame) will be released May 30th on XBLA, PSN, and PC. The game will cost 800 Microsoft points ($10) on XBLA, and while no North American price has been determined for the PSN and PC versions, they’ll be £7.99 in the UK, which comes out to about $12.50, so one can assume it will be in that price range.
According a recent press release, Mad Riders “will see players performing amazing aerial stunts and racing on over 45 stunning tracks from all over the world, at breathtaking speeds.” There will be a major emphasis on filling up your boost bar by completing stunts and going through rings suspended in the air. You’ll also be able to customize your vehicle and character with a large selection of Buggies and ATVs. The game will support up to 12 player multiplayer across three game modes.
Techland is no stranger to the genre, having released the similarly off-road racer, Nail’d in 2010. For a greater idea of what to expect from Mad Riders, check out the announcement trailer.
