Activision has announced its latest monster truck racing game, Monster Jam 2011, which is slated to hit retail later this fall for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and DS, and Sony PSP. The game features several popular monster trucks (including Grave Digger, pictured below), along with the option to customize and create your own as you progress through the game.
“Monster Jam fans spoke to us loud and clear – they want to compete in stadium events that feel like the real thing and control monster trucks that handle like the real thing,” said David Oxford at Activision Publishing. “We can’t wait to let them either create their own trucks, or drive one of the 30 authentic trucks from Monster Jam then destroy everything in sight, just like their favorite drivers.”
Eight real life stadiums from the Monster Jam circuit help bring the live atmosphere to the living room like never before, with explosive truck introductions, pyrotechnics and lighting, and a roaring crowd. In single player mode the goal is the same as for real life drivers – rise through the ranks of ruthless competitors to ultimately battle against the best at the Monster Jam World Finals! Head-to-head multiplayer modes take the heart-pounding competition to another level.
Since there isn’t an official trailer for the game yet, here’s GRAAAAAVE DIGGERRRRRR!
“Activision has been a fantastic partner of ours for many years now, and this year they have outdone themselves,” said Charlie Mancuso, President of Feld Motor Sports “Monster Jam 2011 will be the ultimate monster truck video game, our fans are going to flip when they get their hands on it!”
Be sure to get it SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY…er, we mean this fall. (Sorry, those commercials get to us every time.)
