505 Games Invites Players to Get WRECKED on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network

Agoura Hills, CA– March 10, 2010– International publisher 505 Games has announced today that it will publish UK developer Supersonic’s upcoming battle racer, WRECKED– Revenge Revisited , for Xbox LIVE®Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network. As the follow-up to the wildly popular multiplayer racer MASHED - which released on Xbox console, PlayStation®2, and Windows PC in 2004 - WRECKED– Revenge Revisited will bring car-based combat and racing carnage to a whole new level when it releases this spring.

In WRECKED , players are required to drive aggressively with a chip on their shoulders, utilizing a variety of weapons and vehicle enhancements to take their opponents out of the race. However, vanquished foes are able to exact vengeance against those who knocked them out through five different aerial strikes.

Additionally, WRECKED boasts a bevy of car customization features, allowing players to put their own personal spin on the game’s vehicles. You’ll be able to take these rides through a single player Championship Mode that will offer up to 24 challenges across four disciplines, providing the perfect opportunity to practice your skills. Four players can take each other on either locally or online in multiplayer modes that span several different tracks and unique locations.

“With WRECKED, we really want to build on the legacy that MASHED began on the previous generation of consoles, while at the same time bring some truly kick-ass racing and multiplayer action the likes of which racing fans have never seen,” said Pete Williamson, managing director of Supersonic.“After playing the game, we think you’ll see that we succeeded. Moving away from the trappings of standard racing games and putting a focus on all-out carnage and mayhem is what really makes WRECKED a can’t miss experience for fans of multiplayer racing.”

“The world of battle racing has been long been dominated by cartoon plumbers and dinosaurs, but that’s all about to change,” said Tim Woodley, global brand director of 505 Games.“It’s time to bring a different breed of battle racing to the table, and WRECKED’s brand of stylish havoc is the way to do it.”

More information for WRECKED– Revenge Revisited will be released in the coming weeks and months. Become a member of the WRECKED community on Facebook, and be sure to visit wearewrecked.com for exclusive information leading up to this Spring’s launch.
