Developed by Monster Games, Test Drive: Eve of Destruction captures the raw, unfettered thrill of no-rules competition and is based on real-life extreme racing events.
"We are thrilled to bring Test Drive®: Eve of Destruction, the sequel to 2002's Platinum Hits Test Drive® to Xbox fans this Fall," said Nancy MacIntyre, Vice President of Marketing for Atari's Beverly Studios. "Monster Games has reinvigorated the Test Drive franchise with this fresh departure from static road-course racing without losing touch with the core elements that have made Test Drive one of the most recognized and successful racing franchises in video game history."
Test Drive®: Eve of Destruction is the first Test Drive game to feature: vehicle damage, dirt tracks, crazy events and unorthodox vehicles like school buses, taxis and hearses. Since its debut in 1987, the Test Drive series has sold through more than $137 million worth of product on console and PC.
Test Drive®: Eve of Destruction blends the best elements of racing and demolition and is packed with 25 different events, including Demo Derby, where the last car standing wins; Gauntlet, where the player climbs behind the wheel of a hearse and tries to finish a set number of laps while the rest of the field attempts to stop him; Trailer Race, a new brand of racing event, where the player competes while towing various types of trailers and must finish the race with something resembling a trailer still attached.
Additionally, Test Drive®: Eve of Destruction offers players a selection of more than 30 nontraditional, custom vehicles, an in-game track announcer and a split-screen multiplayer mode for up to four players.
