Yes, it is based on a tropical island and no, it doesn’t involve zombies trying to rip off your face. Still, one out of two isn’t bad. Dead Island developers Techland have announced that their next title will be a downloadable racing game called Mad Riders.
Looking like a bit of a mash-up between the Motorstorm series and Nailed, Mad Riders sees players control buggies and ATV’s in a bid to conquer their competition on off-road tracks set in stunning tropical locales. In a similar way to Motorstorm, boosting is the key to victory, with a bar that can be filled through the risk and reward system of performing aerial tricks off ramps and other obstacles.
Promising 45 tracks, and multiplayer support for up to 12 payers, Mad Riders will be released for PSN, Xbox Live and PC this Spring. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
