The legend of Rally games is back as SEGA Rally motors onto next-generation consoles this autumn promising to push the boundaries of the Rally genre to a new level. A true next-gen game, SEGA Rally looks and plays better than ever offering fans bumper-to-bumper, heart stopping, and adrenalin pumping action sure to induce a grin to player's faces.
Developed by SEGA's own Racing Studio, a handpicked team made up of the cream of the industry's racing development talent, the return of the king of arcade rally games promises to set a new president on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
SEGA Rally retains the looping courses of its predecessors rather than the customary point-to-point of many other titles. This amongst other features, helps to ensure close competitive race action with rival cars all vying to be first over the finishing line to pick up the most points.
With over 30 licensed high performance cars to race across a multitude of rich, vibrant and exotic environments, finding the right car for the right surface can put you one step ahead of the opposition.
Accessible but realistic car handling guarantees a fun and rewarding experience as the signature SEGA Rally power slides are still a feature to be reckon with.
Each environment is based in a colourful, exotic location, with each track full of charm and character mimicking varied environments from around the globe. Surfaces vary from course to course, and the track deformation feature ensures that each surface cuts up and ruts differently making each surface a challenge to master.
The circuits will feature an interactive environment incorporating surface deformation and smashable scenery, which will cause the experience to vary each lap.
As the race goes on, your car will get muddier and dirtier, with trips through the water cleaning your chassis off again. Don't get caught behind your opponent on a dusty track, your visibility becomes impaired, which makes taking that next corner perfectly all the harder.
The result is a dynamic, multi-layered, game structure that produces an exponentially huge number of game play possibilities, creating a game that at heart is a serious and rewarding driving game, but with the game play sensibilities and fun of an Arcade Racer.
