Hermosa Beach, Calif. - July 10, 2008 - Global video
game developer and publisher Deep Silver today released early details of its
very first US bound title Ride to Hell produced by their internal development
The game is set in the last years of the roaring 1960s, a time of sex, drugs and
rock 'n' roll. The biker movement, rock music and the hippie counterculture all
add to the fascinating atmosphere to be experienced in Ride to Hell.
Action-loaded from the very start with free roaming environments, players can
immerse themselves in the liberty and freedom of riding full throttle with their
gang on a multitude of different vehicles through the dusty flats of Western
America. Protecting their turf, their brothers and their machines from rival
gangs is just a taste of what this epic game will involve.
Ride to Hell is not for the faint-hearted; it's aimed heavily at the player who
wants to become fully involved in the original West Coast biker culture. With
its hard drinking, bare-knuckle environment, this is as close to the action as
you can get.
In a movie-style production model, the internal Deep Silver studio is teaming up
with leading creative companies such as Eutechnyx, Perspective Studios, and
others, to bring the authentic and massive game world of Ride to Hell to life.
"The Deep Silver development team has worked on some of the greatest and
grittiest, freeform-style games to ever hit the market," Cathy Tische, vice
president of sales and marketing at Deep Silver, Inc. "They are pulling out all
the stops to bring the biker gang world alive in Ride to Hell, from the 1960s
art style, music and scenery to the completely raw and intense game play."
"Ride to Hell is one of Deep Silver's largest global multiplatform game launches
to date and one that will put Deep Silver on the map in the US," says Hannes
Seifert, managing director at the Deep Silver development studio. "Ride to Hell
captures the spirit of the biker movement in the 1960s, while delivering an
authentic, action-packed game play experience."
Ride to Hell - This brand new multi-platform game has been in development for
over a year and is due for a worldwide release simultaneously on next-gen
consoles and PC in the 2nd Quarter of 2009.
