THQ has today announced that it has shipped the PC and Xbox versions of MotoGP 2 to stores in North America. Developed by UK-based Climax, the game is the sequel to MotoGP, which has become increasingly popular with Xbox players since it became one of the first games to support the Xbox Live online gaming service.
"THQ is thrilled to continue its support of Xbox Live with titles that lend themselves to the growth and excitement of Xbox's online community," said Tiffany Ternan, senior vice president, North American sales and distribution, THQ. "Featuring amazingly detailed Xbox graphics, along with several compelling modes of gameplay, MotoGP 2 is one of the most intense racing experiences available for any system."
MotoGP 2 boasts a number of improvements on the original game, including greatly enhanced visuals, additional gameplay options, and the inclusion of all the accurate track, driver, and team data for the 2002 season.
