'IndyCar Series' Delivers Racing Mania to PCs Nationwide

IndyCar Series delivers gamers the entire Indy Racing League season, including the Indianapolis 500, known to many as "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Players can now put the pedal to the metal and steer their way to glory as they race full-force around the famous oval circuits, feeling the challenge of lightning-paced action, authentic and intuitive handling, spectacular collisions and a dynamically adjusted level of difficulty. Drafting is a key element to gameplay, just as it is an integral part of racing out on the actual pavement.

"Playing the IndyCar Series video game has helped me keep sharp in between races," said Sam Hornish, Jr., the 2001 and 2002 Indy Racing League Champion. "Out on the track, every driver has their own racing style and characteristics, and Codemasters has done an amazing job in accurately reflecting that in the game."

IndyCar Series' complex AI system continues to intertwine the realism of the Indy Racing League with stimulating and exciting gameplay, allowing competing drivers to exhibit the same tactics as their real-life counterparts. The AI system also gauges the ability of the player and dynamically adjusts the level of the opposing drivers' skills accordingly. This creates a unique racing opportunity as AI drivers make strategic decisions, rather than follow a scripted path.

IndyCar Series is also available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Xbox® video game system from Microsoft.
