Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Full Auto 2: Battlelines (PS3)

Full Auto 2: Battlelines is a next-generation car combat game which puts high-speed vehicles outfitted with weapons and armor into fully realized and fully destructible urban street environments.

In Full Auto 2: Battlelines, the districts of Meridian City are turning into battle zones rife with automotive destruction. Players can destroy the environment to dynamically change track conditions to block competitors, open new paths, or crush opponents with falling debris caused by well-timed missiles. Players will get behind the wheel of more than 25 vehicles, customizing them with 20 explosive weapons before entering into single player and multiplayer battles. Full Auto 2: Battlelines introduces a new Arena mode featuring team play and five different multiplayer modes including Gladiator, Cat & Mouse, and Base Assault. Each mode is specifically designed for new and unique forms of intense online car-combat for up to eight players.

Developed by Pseudo Interactive, Full Auto 2: Battlelines for the PS3 is rated “T” for “Teen” by the ESRB and has an MSRP of $59.95.
