83w ago - Milestone Game Director Sebastien Pellicano has posted up a video trailer today announcing that the WRC 3 FIA World Rally Championship demo is revving its engines on PSN.

To quote: Hi everyone, this is Sebastien Pellicano, Game Director of WRC 3 FIA World Rally Championship.

I'm here today to announce that we're releasing a demo today for our upcoming racing title.

Before explaining what we've included in the demo, I would like to start by explaining what makes WRC 3 different from the previous titles in the series.

First of all, we've implemented a brand new graphics engine which allows us to model lighting, particle effects and other real-world characteristics to create an in-game virtual reality as never before.

Furthermore we've changed the structure of the game, following user feedback and implementing three main game modes: Road to Glory - an exciting career mode; WRC Experience - for the rally lovers; and WRC Online - the multiplayer mode. I'm sure that you're going to enjoy all of them.

If you're asking which kind of content will be included, I can promise you that the game will feature all rallies from the 2012 WRC calendar, complete...
 

Video: Fuel Overdose: A Tactical Action Racing Game Coming to PSN

50°
85w ago - I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has shared a video today spotlighting the upcoming tactical action racing game coming to PSN called Fuel Overdose below.

To quote: In 2010, we started the development of Fuel Overdose with the ambition of offering a new kind of solo and multiplayer action racing experience, by bringing more variety to the combat gameplay as well as a tactical approach to the genre. That's why we like to think of Fuel Overdose as a "Tactical-Action-Racing" game.

Our first decision was to go for a top-down/isometric perspective, as we wanted to have a camera system that gives you the innovative features that make Fuel Overdose feel unique. Today, with the first official trailer, we're introducing the racing component of the game.

When we decided to go for a top-down/isometric camera system, we pulled our old consoles out of the closet to try to recapture the spirit of classic racing games. We immediately remembered that what we loved about them is that balance between the immediate fun they deliver and the depth of their gameplay.

With Fuel Overdose, we want to deliver a game that walks the line between arcade and simulation. In order to show their edge, the best drivers will have to master many different vehicles, each with its own specific handling.
