Featuring an enhanced version of the original’s lauded physics engine with even faster driving track designs, FlatOut 2 also boasts numerous improvements, enhancements and additions to make the title the definitive FlatOut experience. Twice as many vehicles, a more sophisticated career mode, additional race environments, double the number of tracks, twice as many mini-games along with brand new and much requested online multiplayer modes are just some of the exhaustive features that are included in FlatOut 2.

FlatOut 2, one of Empire's key frontline titles, builds on the success of the first installment, also distributed in North America by VU Games. Developed by the award-winning Finnish developer Bugbear Entertainment, FlatOut 2 is an over-the-top racing game where players experience the drive of their lives as they race around fully destructible environments in one of 16 fully customizable and upgradeable cars. FlatOut 2 is expected to launch in 2006 on Sony PlayStation 2, Microsoft Xbox and PC.

"We are very thrilled about FlatOut 2 with its revolutionary physics and great gameplay," said Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire. "Teaming up with VU Games was a natural decision and we anticipate the title to be a hit on both sides of the Atlantic."

"We are excited to continue our successful relationship with Empire Interactive with the newly signed distribution agreement for FlatOut 2," said Philip W. O'Neil, Chief Operating Officer and President of North America for Vivendi Universal Games.

FlatOut is scheduled to hit North American retail shelves this month, and is available for PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft and the PC.
