Vice President of Development for Creat Studios Scott Hyman has confirmed today that the Smash Cars: Virus Run add-on DLC pack for PS3 is incoming- arriving to PSN in North America for $2.99 on June 8, 2010.
To quote: Surely you already know about Smash Cars, our tricked-out RC car racing game, right? Right?
Our new DLC tosses in some great new features to enhance that fast-paced experience.
The new Smash Cars: Virus Run features an all-new online racing mode for up to six players to battle to the finish line. But this time, one randomly selected player quickly becomes the group's foe!
The "infected" car rushes the racetrack with the ability to contaminate other players. When the infected player hits an opponent's car, the victim joins the effort.
And, just to make things even more interesting, we tossed in a new Skate Park at the center of the island, complete with half-pipes and springboards to perfect your trick and stunt skills during the Virus Run mode.
Adding to the tears of joy (or fear) we know you're all shedding, TikGames-Creat Studios is thrilled to show how we've been listening to all of you that have sent countless emails, blog responses, bulletin-board posts and screams from rooftops.
We're including the feature that has been, by far, the most requested for Smash Cars: local two-player split screen!
Gamers can now race their mini-cars past angry beach-goers and over boardwalks while playing against friends and family, and show just much better they are than everyone else. The Add-On will be available for download on June 8th in North America for $2.99.
On a serious note, we know that a few of you original Smash Cars owners had some trouble with our online multiplayer mode. We really want to thank all of you for the feedback (some folks were incredibly generous with their time!) and to let you know we indeed have been listening.
Available June 8th in North America, a free patch will be available for automatic download for all Smash Cars owners on to improve your online multiplayer experience.
