The release of MX vs. ATV Unleashed builds on the success of critically acclaimed MX Unleashed, which has shipped more than one million units since its 2004 launch.

"Our goal with MX vs. ATV Unleashed was to expand beyond motocross and create the most comprehensive off-road racing experience ever," said Scott Novis, president, Rainbow Studios. "We've used our extensive knowledge of off-road racing development to pull out all the stops, creating individual driving models for all nine vehicles and allowing up to six people to compete against one another online."

MX vs. ATV Unleashed brings Rainbow Studio's critically celebrated ATV know-how to the top-selling "Unleashed" franchise, allowing gamers to compete with ATVs, dirt bikes and an array of new vehicle types including monster trucks, sand-rails and 4x4 golf karts. Players will explore massive free-world environments containing hill climbs, machine challenges and short track races. The game will be playable online for up to six players allowing them to compete with the top professional ATV and Motocross riders in career mode.
