Codemasters announces McRae's drive of the year with Colin McRae Rally 2005.
Coming this autumn complete with online play on PlayStation 2 and Xbox!
McRae gets his drive of the year as Codemasters today confirms that Colin McRae
Rally 2005, a new addition to the leading rally game series, is in development
and will launch this autumn for PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
Set to be revealed at this year's E3 Expo (May 12-14, Los Angeles), Colin McRae
Rally 2005 takes the series forward with a massive multi-event Career Challenge
and introduces online head-to-head rallying, for up to 8 players, on both
PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
The all-new Career Challenge is the steering wheel-gripping heart of Colin McRae
Rally 2005 and has players hurtling through over 20 different classes of rally
events including Challenges, Cups, SuperCups, Shields and Championships, earning
the right to compete against the very best.
Offering real progression and the most diverse selection of rally cars to choose
from, drivers will be pummelled through a staggering 300+ stages driving cars
from 4-wheel drive, 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel Classics, Super 2-wheel, Rear Wheel,
Distinctive and 4x4 classics. Beyond the Career Challenge, there's even more
adrenaline-fuelled rally gaming with the title's 4WD Championship, Rally, Stages
and Online gaming modes.
And just when you thought a McRae game couldn't offer more detail or visual
splendour, the game's development team is cramming it in: the new bonnet-cam and
an improved chase cam gives a real sensation of speed and undulation. Enhanced
damage and scenery visuals include new individual damage models for every car
and should you crash into a tree, it'll shudder and even drop leaves!
With its perfect car handling, superbly designed stages, and progressive events,
Colin McRae Rally 2005 is set to be the most complete and rewarding rally
experience when it launches this autumn for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, with online
multiplayer rallying on both formats. Get your stage start on the game at
