Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad now out on PSN in Europe
Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is already available on Xbox Live Arcade, but is now also available on the Playstation Network in Europe for £8.89, or 9.99 Euros.
It’s an off-road racing game with five vehicle classes including rally cars, Pro Buggies and Pro Lite trucks, but the big beasts are the 800-horsepower, 4WD offroad trucks as raced by Jeremy McGrath himself in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. McGrath originally rose to fame on two wheels, as a 7-time Supercross Champion who still holds the record for overall race career wins.
You can race on six tracks, including a snowy Dutch location and a reservoir in the Amazon rainforest, with 8-player online multiplayer, online leaderboards and stats, and a career mode which allows you to race as McGrath in his bit for the Pro2 championship.
The game was developed by 2XL Games, who previously created Baja: Edge of Control and 2XL ATV Offroad 2009. They worked with former AMA East Coast Supercross champion Stephane Roncada to help with track design and tuning the AI-controlled competitors to offer a range of difficulty levels for all players. Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad is being published by D3Publisher on XBLA (800 MS Points), and Reverb Publishing on PSN.
A percentage of all sales is being donated to BeTheMatch.org, a charity that helps people with life-threatening blood cancers, which includes McGrath’s wife Kim who was matched with a marrow donor for treatment for her leukemia.
