Megarace 3 - Facts, Screens and Release Date

Fasten your seat belts and hang on - Megarace IS BACK! Cynical presenter Lance Boyle is at the helm of sending out brave drivers in a new series of daredevil challenges. This year the races are being held on a microscopic scale, with hybrid vehicles that evolve and adapt to track conditions - all of which makes for a spectacular, explosive new game.


Experience the stunning 33 circuits and 8 worlds of Megarace 3. Release date is set for 29th March 2002. Cryo will publish the game simultaneously on PlayStation 2 (£29.99) and PC CD-Rom (£19.99), exclusively distributed in the UK by Acclaim Entertainment.

After the worldwide success of the two first versions of "MEGARACE", Cryo takes the concept a step further and makes significant changes. Not only is it in real time 3D, but you actually takeoff. Forget about car races. Now, encouraged by a cheering crowd and the wild commentaries of Lance Boyle, you will be piloting vessels specially conceived for speed and combat, in environments that change with each race.

You can choose between a dozen different vessels, each with their own strengths and characteristics. They all have 3 active modes: Speed - Attack - Defence.

All the ships are modular and according to your results, you will be able to personalise them. Different modules are available to improve the engine characteristics, including the battle armour and the weapons.

Several game modes are available including - simple solo race, race with customisable ships, capture the flag, duel mode and, all of which can be played in network mode.

In a totally wild virtual universe, the hallucinogenic projection of what TV will be showing in the future, MEGARACE 3 is a unique game that re-creates both a spectacular race, and a great 3D first person shooting game. Instead of a being given a low-powered shotgun, the player is provided with a lean machine built for speed and war at their fingertips…
