"Activision is the #1 publisher of action sports video games and with Wakeboarding Unleashed featuring Shaun Murray we've set another benchmark for the genre," Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios, said. "This title will introduce video game players to the exciting world of wakeboarding by delivering the most impressive water physics seen in any title to date and an entirely new and exhilarating gameplay experience."
Developed by Shaba Games, LLC, Wakeboarding Unleashed featuring Shaun Murray lets players perform incredible series of tricks through nine dynamic levels of limitless action. The game's unique rope mechanics enables players to let go of the rope in order to find secret areas and venture into unteathered territory. Gamers can then continue their run by grabbing a hold of the rope again to explore exotic locations from Hong Kong Harbor to Venice, Italy.
Players are also able to compete with one another in groundbreaking two-player modes including Cooperative where one person controls the boat while the other controls the boarder, and head-to-head Tug-of-War. The game features amazing water graphics, secret levels and upgradeable equipment that capture the essence of high performance wakeboarding.
A world leader in the fast-growing sport of wakeboarding, Shaun Murray is one of seven professional riders featured in the game. His impressive list of credentials includes multiple Pro Wakeboard Tour wins, a gold medal in the Gravity Games and first place at the Vans Triple Crown.
