The PlayStation 3 is just about to fill the combat racing game hole in its 2006 lineup. Sega has announced that Full Auto 2: Battlelines has gone gold and will ship to stores on December 7. The game was developed by Pseudo Interactive, who also created Battlelines' predecessor, Full Auto, for the Xbox 360.
Battlelines features more than two dozen cars, each outfitted with firepower from a roster of 20 weapons. The backdrops of fictional Meridian City are fully destructible, meaning on one pass a turn may be clear and on an another lap it could be littered with rubble. Full Auto 2 also features an "unwreck" feature, letting gamers rewind short periods of time.
Full Auto 2: Battlelines is rated T for Teen and will retail for $59.99. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's previous coverage. A PSP version is also in the works and will be available early next year.
