Indy Racing League Speeds To Xbox

New York – January 14, 2003 - It’s not just driving – it’s blisteringly fast, nerve-shatteringly intense, pure professional racing and it’s unlike any racing video game to date. This is Indy Racing League, the official video game of the grueling US open-wheel championship, features real drivers, cars and tracks. Published by Codemasters, Indy Racing League will ship in spring 2003 for PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PC. Set to be the most exciting and entertaining open-wheel racing game ever designed, Indy Racing League features adrenaline-fuelled, ultra-close pack racing, with up to 33 cars racing on a track at one time. Requiring total focus to handle the incredible overtaking maneuvers, players will be racing at speeds well over 200mph. Indy Racing League delivers the Indy Racing season, including the Indianapolis 500 (Indy 500) race, "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." The season is an open-wheeled championship on short ovals and super speedways throughout the US, including California and Texas, with the Indy 500 as the highlight of its racing calendar. Indy cars are similar to F1 but are powered by 3.5-litre V8 engines, used by all teams. Fast and furious, the 650 bhp cars reach 0-100 mph in less than three seconds. As a game, Indy Racing League provides immediate lightening-paced action, authentic yet intuitive handling, spectacular collisions and a dynamically adjusted level of difficulty to keep the challenges on the circuits coming thick and fast. To succeed in this intense sport, it’s all about racing using real Indy Racing tactics, making for a fresh racing game challenge. Players must continuously overtake other drivers, defend positions, perform close maneuvers at high speeds, utilize drafting techniques and switch fuel settings to take advantage of either speed or economy. Codemasters’ Indy Racing League is the only game that features the official cars, tracks, teams and drivers, totaling 14 tracks, 27 cars and 15 action-packed races all in US TV-style presentation. A fully authentic Indy 500 mode features the spectacle and excitement of the most attended single-day sporting event in the world. Brilliant detailing makes it a hugely realistic racing challenge, with all the Indy Racing League rules and flags, right down to a dynamic track surface in which track temperature affects tire grip. Accurate in-game recreations of the racing speedways even include fully animated pit crews, field marshals, clean-up crews and vehicles.
