Atari announces Test Drive: Eve of Destruction

Atari plans to release this action-packed racing game from Monster Games this fall.


Atari has today announced its intention to publish Monster Games' Test Drive: Eve of Destruction for the PS2. Currently scheduled for release this fall, the game is described as a no-rules competition based on real-life extreme racing events.

"Test Drive: Eve of Destruction captures the heart and soul of what gamers want in an action-racing game--speed, thrills and hair-raising crashes," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari's Beverly Studios. "Monster Games, the developer of NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona, has done a great job translating their realistic racing physics to this brand-new evolution of the popular Test Drive brand."

Test Drive: Eve of Destruction will feature more than 30 customizable vehicles for players to take control of in 25 different events, including demolition derbies, trailer races, and an event know as "Gauntlet," in which the driver of a hearse attempts to complete a set number of laps while every other driver on the circuit tries to stop him or her. No online play for Test Drive: Eve of Destruction has been announced at this time, but the game's split-screen options will support up to four players simultaneously.

We'll bring you more information on Test Drive: Eve of Destruction as soon as it becomes available.
