Mashed: Drive to Survive (2004)

Empire Interactive has today announced that it will publish Mashed for the PC, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in Europe in June. The top-down racing game, which is currently in development at Supersonic, will allow up to four players to compete in 13 different environments, including oval circuits, icy mountain tracks, forest trails, and the deserts of Egypt.

Mashed will feature a number of different vehicles suited to the various terrain types in the game, and players will also have access to an arsenal of nine different weapons, which are capable of sabotaging or even ending their opponents' chances. Weapons on offer will include machine guns, mortars, missiles, shotguns, oil slicks, flamethrowers, mines, barrel bombs, and blinding flares. Players who are taken out of the race will gain access to an air strike, which allows them to either make things difficult for the race leader or pay back whoever took them out.

Mashed is currently scheduled for release in Europe in June, but no North American release has been confirmed at the time of this writing. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.
