SEGA has today announced that the sequel to Full Auto is to be a PS3 exclusive:
SEGA of America and SEGA Europe today announced Full Auto 2: Battlelines, developed for the PlayStation 3. Full Auto 2: Battlelines combines weapon-equipped vehicles with fully destructible urban environments for fierce car combat and calculated destruction. Full Auto 2: Battlelines also introduces a new Arena Mode featuring six different arenas specifically designed to allow for one-of-a-kind multiplayer car combat. Environmental destruction plays an important role in Full Auto 2: Battlelines. Players strategically destroy the environment to dynamically change track conditions as original racing lines are blocked and new paths are opened up. Environmental destruction can also be used as a weapon as cars are crushed by falling debris caused by well timed missiles.
“Full Auto 2: Battlelines features some of the most destructible environments ever seen in a video game,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. “The intentional destruction of the environment will play an integral role in gameplay as classic racing lines are altered or removed completely by savvy players with well executed long-range missile tactics.”
Key Product Features
Destroy and conquer: Destroy the city to find shortcuts and block opponents… or even use the city as a weapon. Shoot everything in sight to set off massive chain reactions of explosions throughout the fully destructible environment to overwhelm and obliterate opponents.
Six unique game modes: Take up the gauntlet in the all-new Arena Mode and outrun and blast your way to victory with eight online opponents in various modes including Gladiator, Base Assault and Team Deathmatch.
Single-player story-based Career Mode: Battle for Staunton City by conquering six different districts and taking control of your opponents’ cars and weapons.
Customisable weapon combinations: Mix and match 20 hardcore weapons to blow away your opponents.
High-quality PlayStation 3 visuals: Breathtaking displays of destruction, physics and speed; push the next-generation technological boundaries to the limit.
Unwreck: Rewind time to take another shot at a treacherous turn, avoid a deadly obstacle, or steer clear of enemy fire.
Hmm I find it strange it’s going to be a PS3 exclusive. The original Full Auto was released on the 360 not long ago & it didn’t do very well with lag problems, short lifespan & claims that the game was rushed.
Hopefully Psuedo Interactive will spend more time on development for the sequel & have listened to the criticisms of the original Full Auto.
