Empire Interactive has announced Total Immersion Racing, its upcoming driving game for the PC, Sony PlayStation 2, and Microsoft Xbox. In the game, players will follow a career path that takes them from being the lowest-ranked driver of a GT sports car to becoming a world champion racer in control of a powerful 8-liter prototype racecar. The game will combine realistic competitive racing with an advanced AI system that gives the computer-controlled drivers unique personalities and driving styles. In addition, opposing drivers will have different responses to the player's actions, and they may even hold a grudge if the player's driving upsets them.
Total Immersion Racing is in development at Empire's UK-based Razorworks studio and is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2002.
