Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad gets budget priced release 26 June
Robb Rinard, the creative director for 2XL Games, posted on the PlayStation Blog earlier today that Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is coming to PS3 via the PlayStation Store this Tuesday, 26 June at the low, low price of $9.99.
If you’re unfamiliar with 2XL Games, its probably because you don’t play offroad racing games. The company has blanketed its games across just about every platform in existence. You can download their various -cross games on Android, iOS, Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Well, maybe not every platform in existence; no gaming portables or the big N as of late.
Described as an “arcade-style” racer featuring the seven-time supercross champion Jeremy McGrath, Offroad kicks up the dirt by presenting the racing game in 1080P at 60 frames per second and 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound.
Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad will grab your attention by way of four different categories to level up your vehicles abilities including handling, top speed, acceleration, and braking. Sounds pretty straight forward, doesn’t it? Expect all the usual suspects of vehicle types as well; from rally cars to trophy trucks. And a selection of seven tracks, all of which can be previewed on the game’s official website.
Throw in a full career mode and the online eight player racing, which comes standard for the extremely low price of $9.99, no online voucher needed. As fully priced games continue to release with the added code accompaniment required for online play, these PSN games start to seem like a pretty good alternative.
Does this sound like a fair way to spend a sixth of what a full offroad racing game normally costs or are you scratching your head wondering who in the world is Jeremy McGrath?
