'Mad Tracks' (X360) Gets Multiplayer Support

by Rainier on Aug. 10, 2006 @ 8:15 a.m. PDT

Mad Tracks is an action-packed toy-car racing game, with toy cars powered by spring engines. Races are set in everyday places, like toy stores, mini-golf parks, and restaurants.

Denis Bourdain, VP of Mad Tracks developer Load Inc, declared this week that they (Microsoft & Load Inc.) have listened to the gamers confirming what they wanted all along: to make this not only the best Xbox 360 Live Arcade party game for home multiplayer, but also for online Xbox Live multiplayer. The reason for initially not including it was a combination of time and technical difficulties, with the PC version's LAN code having to be rewritten from the ground up to be able to run over Xbox Live, but the decision is final now that they will do exactly that despite the several months delay it will cause.

“We’re very excited to add this feature that undoubtedly makes a great difference with other next gen consoles. (…) We also hope to team up with a partner soon to help publish this title in a proper fashion. Leipzig is a perfect time to present ‘Mad Tracks XBLA’ to potential investors” added Denis Bourdain.

There is no word yet on an updated release date, but rest assured that the Load Inc. developers are hard at work right now to ensure all of us can have some Mad online multiplayer racing fun soon.
