3DO will be exhibiting Jacked, an upcoming motorcycle combat game, at E3 2003. The game hearkens back to the classic game, Road Rash, with players riding motorcycles and attacking other riders using weapons. In Jacked, you'll take the role of a tough biker who takes part in a series of illegal motorcycle races. You'll earn money from races and use it to upgrade your motorcycle in a variety of ways, or if you like an opponent's bike, you can simply beat him up and take it.
The game's combat is way over-the-top, as you can attack other riders with a plethora of bludgeoning devices (bottles, chains, or golf clubs, to name a few). You'll also be able to use objects in the levels to attack your opponents, such as huge, throwable urns, or parking meters that you can swing like a club. Ranged weapons such as shotguns are also included in Jacked, and you'll be able to knock other players into traps or other hazards like saw blades and car crushers. If you don't have any weapons on hand, you can always resort to punching and kicking.
Jacked is slated to ship this fall for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube. We'll post more information on the game as it becomes available.
