San Bernardino, CA– May 25, 2011– On the heels of the excitement of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series event at the Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino last weekend, 2XL Games revealed more information and a first look at its upcoming video game Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad . Highlighting seven-time AMA champion Jeremy McGrath’s latest venture into four-wheel off road racing, this high-octane, track-tearing racer will speed onto consoles this summer from Reverb Publishing on PlayStation®Network and on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft from D3Publisher.
“I’m a huge fan of gaming and always have been, and being able to represent my transition from Supercross to short-course off road racing in a game is an awesome opportunity,” said Jeremy McGrath.“Having seen the work that 2XL Games has done with racing games in the past with Rainbow Studios and more, they are the perfect team to work with to create a fast-paced, intense racing experience that fans will want to get their hands on.”
In Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad players race four-wheeled 800 horsepower off road race trucks with tons of options including a host of tracks, single-player and multiplayer modes as well as a wide loadout of vehicle classes including Rally Cars, Pro Buggies, and Trophylite Trucks, all in crispy 1080p, 60 frames per second presentation. With multiplayer support for eight racers, and a full career mode that follows Jeremy’s bid for the PRO-2 championship within the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS), Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad will be the title for racing fans who want to get down and dirty on the track this summer!
“Jeremy McGrath is one of the most recognizable names in racing, off-road or otherwise, and working with him on this title is a dream come true for the team at 2XL Games,” said Robb Rinard from 2XL Games.“Having his support and his input on this racer is a huge boost for the team.”
Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad will be launching on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network in late summer 2011. For more information on Jeremy McGrath, please visit http://www.jeremymcgrath2.com.
