The graphically violent vehicular combat 1997 PC video game, “Carmageddon”, has been made available on Playstation and Xbox One consoles. If Mad Max Fury wasn’t enough, you could get a similar taste with the “Vintage vehicular Carnage” series.
As per the official Playstation Blog, Jason Garber, Publishing Director at Stainless Games made the announcement. He stated, “I’m excited to announce today that Carmageddon: Max Damage is tearing its way onto a PS4 near you!”
“Carmageddon: Max Damage features more cars than ever, more environments than ever, and most importantly more pedestrians than ever! There’s never been a better time to cruise over to Bleak City and trash your opponents, both online and offline, in a six-way car crushing experience!”
What started as a PC game, was later ported to other platforms, and spawned a series of follow-up titles. It was inspired by the 1975 cult classic movie Death Race 2000. The game was produced by Stainless Games, published by Interplay and SCi.
In “Carmageddon”, the player races a vehicle against a number of other computer controlled competitors in various settings, including city, mine and industrial areas. The player has a certain amount of time to complete each race, but more time may be gained by collecting bonuses, damaging the competitors’ cars, or by running over pedestrians.
Races are completed by either completing the course as one would a normal racing game, “Wasting” (wrecking) all other race cars, or killing all pedestrians on the level.
According to the Engadget, “Carmageddon: Revival” wasn’t exactly a hit but we hope that the latest series will spice things up.
Garber also stated that the “options for fun are limitless”. You can also keep the game offline against AI opponents in Classic Carmageddon or you can “take the pain online in Fox ‘n’ Hounds”.
You cab also check out the fully-packed “Action-Replay” mode where you are also able to set cameras and watch the carnage from every angle.
However, there was no particular date mentioned during the announcement about the release on Playstation and Xbox One consoles. Stay tuned for more updates.
