Acclaim has announced that Ducati World Challenge Racing for the Sega Dreamcast and the Sony PlayStation has shipped to retailers. The game was developed by Attention To Detail, in close cooperation with Ducati. It has two modes of play - the arcade-style quick race mode and the simulation-based Ducati life mode. In the Ducati life mode players can advance by racing to earn cash, customizing their motorcycles, and completing all the races. Players can then risk it all by entering a challenge race against another player where the winner takes home both bikes.

"This game offers a great racing experience for the both the casual arcade-style racing fan and the serious bike enthusiast,'' said Evan Stein, brand director at Acclaim Entertainment. "It's got great physics, and the attention to detail in terms of handling and styling is remarkable. If you know something about the rich history of Ducati motorcycles, you'll recognize some of the real classic bikes here, and they're great fun to race on. If you're new to Ducati motorcycles, then get ready for romance, because you're going to fall in love with them."

"Both Acclaim and ATD worked hard with Ducati to ensure that the gameplay and styling accurately projects the revolutionary and desirable Ducati feel,'' said James Sewell, assistant product manager at Acclaim Entertainment. "Designed with both the average gamer and die-hard Ducati enthusiast in mind, the sophisticated game physics allow the player to get a feel for the different handling characteristics of Ducati's bikes throughout the classic Italian motorcycle company's fifty-year-old history."

Classic Ducati motorcyles from the fifties to the company's present day models are available in the game.
