Carnage Racing from Jagex coming to Facebook in November
Jagex today unveiled the first details of their latest title, Carnage Racing, which will be released exclusively on Facebook in November 2012.
The title has been developed by the company’s newly established Californian studio, staffed by the team behind the hugely popular Midnight Club series. Carnage Racing promises to bring free high-quality multiplayer racing to the world’s largest social network for the first time and marks the RuneScape developer’s first foray into social media gaming. Featuring platform defining 3D graphics and some of the most addictive gameplay around, Carnage Racing aims to take multiplayer Facebook gaming to a new level in graphical fidelity.
Carnage Racing offers racing fans a fast-paced experience, complete with a wide variety of vehicles, weapons, warps, boosts and tricks to test even the most experienced gamer race after race. With every completed contest, players collect experience points and game currency which can be traded-in for new vehicles, more powerful weaponry and special features which could propel players to the front of the grid. Regardless of whether you prefer racing head to head with up to seven friends, an achievement player looking to top the fastest times table, or even a single player looking to test your skills against the games AI, there is something in Carnage Racing for everyone.
Arash Amini, Producer, said; “Carnage Racing perfectly blends arcade style gameplay mechanics with AAA graphics to give racing fans a Facebook gaming experience like no other. With a vast array of customisation, upgrades and an army of waiting competitors, Carnage Racing is set to change the way people think about racing games on Facebook.”
Commenting on the announcement, Rob Ollett, Jagex’s VP of 3rd Party Publishing said, “Carnage Racing is set to bring the development quality of AAA gaming to Facebook by presenting racing fans with a truly compelling and unbeatable multiplayer racing experience. With Carnage Racing, we are determined to offer a console-like experience which capitalises on Facebook’s vast network to match player’s race after race, in what promises to be the best 3D racer on Facebook.”
