Electronic Arts the world’s leading interactive entertainment software company, today officially announced plans to go off-road with Shox for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and the Nintendo GameCube. Shipping in Fall 2002, racing rookies as well as seasoned speed demons will hit the circuit to compete in amped-up arcade-style rally car racing.

Jumping into one of 24 licensed high voltage vehicles, players race through three-lap circuits of snow, desert, or jungle landscapes. Sliding through dusty roads, slipping on ice, and shredding through foliage, it’s crowded on the open road, as six competing cars try to muscle into prime position, wreaking havoc along the way. Additionally, up to 4 players can compete for top rankings in a multiplayer split-screen mode.

Within each track are “Shox Zones” where players are awarded Bronze, Silver, and Gold placements based on their driving skills. Earn the Gold in all “Shox Zones” on a single track and a new circuit will be unlocked. Players can also put their own cars up as collateral in races with opponent in Wagering Mode to collect the ultimate off-road vehicle collection.
