REVENGE WILL BE SERVED MARCH 2012

Milton Keynes, UK — International publisher of video games, 505 Games, is today delighted to finally announce that WRECKED – Revenge Revisited will be available to purchase on March 28th, 2012. The much-requested title will be available on both Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation® Network*.

A spiritual successor to 2004’s critically acclaimed fan favourite MASHED™, also from developer Supersonic, WRECKED – Revenge Revisited amps up the addictive, vindictive gameplay with the aggressive Battle Mode, featuring outrageous weapons for exciting enemy annihilation, in local, online and co-op play for up to four players. Solo players can also enjoy the Championship Mode, featuring 24 challenges to beat. Success wins players livery, new car parts and other goodies. 

Weapons make a triumphant return in WRECKED – Revenge Revisited, with 14 fun and explosive ways to bring a smile to the player’s face as the opposition is laid to waste — including five different types of airstrike alone. Weapons include proximity mines, flame thrower, mortar, machine gun, homing missile, shotgun, Taser and more. 

Serving the fan community, developer Supersonic has paid tribute to MASHED’s insanely popular Polar Wharf track with the new Icebridge track. “We knew very early on that we wanted a track inspired by Polar Wharf from MASHED”, said Peter Williamson, Managing Director at Supersonic. “In some respects the Icebridge track came easily, although in other respects this was the hardest track to do. Polar Wharf was so insanely addictive that anything less than that in WRECKED would have been a fail, so we endlessly tweaked that track and how the physics behaved on it too”.

“For fans of MASHED it has been a long wait, and we are extremely pleased to be releasing WRECKED in March,” said Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand at 505 Games. “There are few rivals out there that can offer the same level of racing mayhem and pure, irresistible, multiplayer fun as WRECKED. As well as serving our existing loyal fans, we’re excited to be bringing this unique experience to a whole new generation of gamers.”

WRECKED – Revenge Revisited will launch on March 28th. For the latest information, videos and screenshots, visit www.wearewrecked.com and follow the game at www.facebook.com/WeAreWrecked.
