TikGamesÃ‚Â and Creat Studios today announced the release of Smash Cars: Virus Run, the first Add-On DLC Pack for the hit PlayStation Network game Smash Cars. The sixth Add-On Pack released under the partnership between the two companies to deliver next generation console games will be available for download on the PlayStation 3Ã‚Â for $2.99 on Tuesday, June 8th in North America and Ã¢â€šÂ¬2.99 on Wednesday, June 16th in Europe.
Players will continue to rack up points by performing stunts, drifting around corners at top-speed, smashing into other vehicles, and flying past the finish line in a remote-control car! Smash Cars: Virus Run incorporates all the popular features from the original arcade style racing experience, including real-time physics, innovative stunts and next-generation graphics, but with an added twist.
Smash Cars: Virus Run features an all-new online, six-player racing mode where one randomly selected player becomes the groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foe. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“infectedÃ¢â‚¬Â player rushes the racetrack with the ability to contaminate other contestants and ruin their chances of victory. Once the infected player hits an opponentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s car, the victim joins the efforts. Included in the Add-On Pack is a new Skate Park environment located at the center of the island, complete with half-pipes and springboards to access during the Virus Run mode.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If you thought avoiding angry tourists was a rush, just wait until youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re speeding away from five infected RC cars that are all trying to bring you down!Ã¢â‚¬Å“ said Anatoly Tikhman, Founder and CEO of TikGames, LLC.
Smash Cars: Virus Run also includes a new local two-player split screen mode, allowing players to play side-by-side. Players can now blast past beach goers and jump off boardwalks alongside friends and family.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â In addition to the release of the new Add-On Pack, a free patch will be available for automatic download to current Smash Cars owners in order to improve the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s current online multiplayer feature and provide a superior user experience.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Smash Cars is already jam-packed with action, but add the multiplayer viral twist pushed the excitement even further,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Vladimir Starzhevsky, co-founder and CEO of Creat Studios, Inc.Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are thrilled to provide new downloadable content updates for PlayStation 3 customers based on their suggestions, and to present another unique addition to our growing list of titles for the Sony PlayStation Network.Ã¢â‚¬Â
