Pure on Its Way to Retailers
Pure, the latest ATV-inspired video game, will be available at all major retailers on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Versions of Pure will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows based-PC systems.
Black Rock Studio, Disney Interactive Studio’s development studio in Brighton, England, says that “Pure delivers heart-pounding racing experiences unique to the genre by taking players over the edge with massive jumps and spectacular airborne tricks.”
With seven real locations all over the world, Pure features 35 multiple-route tracks and 70 tricks.
“Black Rock Studio has delivered a game that goes beyond the off-road genre,” says Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “With vertigo-inducing jumps, off-the-wall tricks and stunning graphics that make the scenic locations truly awe-inspiring, Pure has created a unique category that will thrill a wide audience.”
Pure was selected as the Best Racing Game of E3 2008 by the Game Critics Awards.
“At Black Rock Studio, we’re big fans of both arcade racing games and action sports so this seemed like the perfect combination,” says Jason Avent, game director for Black Rock Studio. “Pure is a game that should excite players and we’re looking forward to seeing their responses.”
Pure features 16-player contests, against either A.I. opponents in single-player or other players via online multiplayer. The single-player modes of Pure are Race (trick-based races to the finish line), Freestyle (points-based) or Sprint (short intense tracks). Online mode features the same modes plus Freeride, which lets players roam freely and face-off online with their friends to see who can pull the biggest trick, combo, or fastest lap.
Pure will be available for the PlayStation 3 system, and Xbox 360 for $59.99. The Windows-based PC version will be available for $49.99.
