Let the havoc commence!

Haarlem, The Netherlands – 13 August 2013 - Publisher Iceberg Interactive and game developer Gamepires are pleased to announce having signed a worldwide publishing deal for the combat race game for PC Gas Guzzlers Extreme . With more than 40 tracks featuring over 200 miles of tarmac and dirt, 12 insane weapons and 8 different multiplayer modes, Gas Guzzlers Extreme will blow you and your car away, in astonishing detail. The game is slotted for release in October 2013, both at retail and on Steam and other digital platforms.

Tomislav Pongrac, Creative Director of Gamepires says: "Our goal with Gas Guzzlers Extreme was to create a new vehicular combat experience, and one that breaks the typical mold. Fans of the genre will now be able to battle alongside their friends by creating a faction and taking on other clans in combat."  He continues, "We are very excited about our partnership with Iceberg. It allows us to tap into many new possibilities for Gas Guzzlers Extreme. Iceberg's years of experience and attention to detail will certainly be a factor in Gas Guzzlers Extreme's success."
