THQ is getting back into the filth business once again with its 10-million selling MX vs. ATV franchise, today announcing MX vs. ATV Alive with an overhauled physics engine to make for the most authentic motocross racer yet, according to the press release.
Apparently, MX vs. ATV Alive will also be supported by "an unprecedented digital content distribution strategy", which essentially means that we'll be bombarded with loads of muddy DLC upon its release.
"With innovative technological advances and an unparalleled variety of content, the MX vs. ATV franchise has always led the pack in the off-road racing genre," said Danny Bilson, THQ Executive Vice President of Core Games. "This year, MX vs. ATV Alive is bringing fans the features they asked for, along with a robust content distribution strategy that offers a great new way for gamers to specialise their experience."
MX vs. ATV Alive also features a new gameplay mechanic called 'Bar-to-Bar' that lets players tussle for the lead by going elbow-to-elbow to shunt each other off track while clashing handlebars. "Combined with the smoother controls and refined terrain deformation, the intense rider collision will make this the most realistic and accessible motocross game yet," said Michael Lustenberger, THQ Vice President of Global Brand Management Online/Digital.
You'll be able to get dirty once again when MX vs. ATV Alive launches in May 2011 for a suggested retail price of $39.99. Check out the first five images from the game in the gallery.
