FlatOut Ultimate Carnage Coming to PCs

This Silverstar Empire Interactive press release announces plans to bring FlatOut Ultimate Carnage to the PC platform this June (thanks Gamer's Hell). Word is series originator Bugbear Entertainment is working on a PC edition of the game, which appeared for Xbox 360 this past summer:

BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 1, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Empire Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings (Nasdaq:SSTR), announced the PC-DVD ROM version of the best selling arcade racer "FlatOut Ultimate Carnage" is being prepared for a June 2008 worldwide release.

The FlatOut series has enjoyed worldwide success across multiple formats, selling more than 2 million copies and winning numerous awards, including FlatOut II named Xbox(r) "Best Racing Game of 2006". FlatOut Ultimate Carnage for Xbox 360(tm) was released to critical acclaim in June 2007. The next installment in the FlatOut franchise, FlatOut Head On for the Sony PSP, is due for release on March 14, 2008. And now, the award-winning Finnish creator of FlatOut, Bugbear Entertainment, is developing FlatOut Ultimate Carnage for PC.

While simulation racers have traditionally found their home on PCs, FlatOut Ultimate Carnage blurs the line between arcade and simulation. PC gamers can have a "deathproof" experience with Carnage gameplay modes and enhanced graphics that rival the Xbox 360 version. Multiplayer online provides wheel-to-wheel action as opponents try to fishtail other cars and get across the finish line in a "no holds barred" extreme driving smash fest.

"Research suggests that arcade racers are becoming ever more popular on the PC, with the Xbox 360 controller providing the perfect way to enjoy the genre," said Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire Interactive. "Ultimate Carnage is an entirely new prospect for PC, and we're excited to be bringing FlatOut's unique gameplay experience to PC gamers everywhere."

Clive Kabatznik, CEO of Silverstar Holdings said, "The FlatOut series has been a global success story for Empire. With more than 2 million unit sales globally, the FlatOut franchise is an important part of our game portfolio and we are confident FlatOut Ultimate Carnage for PC will add to our ongoing success and bring new fans to the title."

Jussi Laakkonen, business development director of Bugbear Entertainment, noted, "Since announcing the Xbox 360 release we've witnessed fanatical anticipation and demand for FlatOut Ultimate Carnage on PC. It gives us great pleasure to bring this mayhem to the PC, for which FlatOut fans across the globe have long been clamouring!"
