Disney Interactive Studios today announced the release date for their upcoming action racer Split/Second
, being developed by Black Rock Studios, the helmers behind http://www.trueachievements.com/Pure-xbox-360.htm
. The game is set to hit American store shelves on May 18th, and in Europe on May 21st.
Split/Second is an intense arcade action racing game set within the world of a hyper-competitive reality TV show. Competitors vie to be the first across the finish line in a made-for-TV city built for destruction, with the ultimate goal of being the season champion.
Competitors in Split/Second don't just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track—they can also trigger explosive events that drastically alter the dynamics of the race. Players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to derail opponents, tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.
Bizarrely enough, Disney have also announced that the explosive game will be released as Split Second: Velocity
in Europe, while retaining the original Split/Second
title in America. Why? I literally have no idea.
