Microsoft’s bike racing franchise returns in a whole new way with Avatar Motocross Madness
. Last week, a pair of screens
were teased for the upcoming title Xbox LIVE Arcade title, and now we have more to show as well as first details for the high-flying racer.
The game boasts high jumps and insane tricks in the racing portion of the game. There’s more than just off-road racing however. In Avatar Motocross Madness
there are three vast environments to explore through freestyle riding. Here you can discover special items and discover hidden secrets. The first details and screens for Avatar Motocross Madness
sounds quite similar to that of the recently released Joy Ride Turbo
. Partially because of the gameplay, but especially the exploration elements. Joy Ride Turbo
featured Stunt Parks where you could let loose or go on the hunt for hard-to-reach or hidden collectibles. Avatar Motocross Madness
looks to bring this type of discovery and freedom to XBLA once again. Plus, they both feature the coolest racers around, your avatar!Avatar Motocross Madness
will also bring a bit of a social aspect to the table too. With the game’s Bike Club, you can challenge your friend’s times, scores, and race against their ghosts. This allows you to compete with friends even when they’re not there. This isn’t an entirely new concept; it sounds strikingly similar to the Challenge Play mode in Kinect Sports: Season Two
, among other titles. Even if it isn’t original, more ways to connect and compete with friends is always a welcome addition.
Release date and pricing for Avatar Motocross Madness
has not been revealed, but like always, we’ll let you know once the info becomes available.
